I have been looking at role playing games that might be used for the Void Universe and decided that GDW Starter Traveller is a good match. It is easy to learn and easy to modify. This is my basic take below. I hope to add to it soon.

04/16/2020 - edit: I finished with basic edit. It is usable at this stage, but I hope to add to it in more detail soon. The file was too large to upload here so here is a link to the PDF:

If you are playing Traveller, using Void, then the above chart will help you convert your Traveller armor into Void T stats.

If you are using you Void figures for Traveller then your T4 troops would either have Cloth, Vacc Suit, or Combat Armor in a Traveller setting, depending on the Void figures being used.

Traveller Skill Level Comparison to Void Stat Level

450.00%
560.00%158.00%

9100.00%597.00%
10110.00%

This table allows you to convert your Traveller character skills to Void stats in case you want to use Void as your gaming medium.

For example: Your Traveller character has Electronics-2. If you wish to use this skill in a Void game, then your character uses the skill as if he has a stat of 6 in Electronics.

If you wish to use a Void character in your Traveller game then this is the work around. For example: Your Void character has a SH of 4. Decide what type of weapon this pertains to (1-handed, 2-handed, or mounted) and then give your Traveller character a level of 1 in that combat skill. The other SH stats would transfer directly from the chart. The stat of 4 is the only one that you have to be creative with your interpretation.
