Traveler's Guide to the Galaxy 009 - Technological Horrors

Where Technology and Terror Collide!

Fear of new technology is as old as civilization itself, and often it is the same fears, over and over, that simply get applied to new technologies: today, we worry about how the internet has provided a glut of information that makes it difficult to sort out the truth from disinformation and meaningless nonsense. Believe it or not, those same concerns were raised with the rise of the printing press, and even the idea of the written word itself. The same conversations that we have today about how smartphones and social media erode the art of conversation, and how everyone’s faces are constantly buried in their screens, almost perfectly mirror the concerns Victorians had about the wireless telegraph. But just because these fears are recurring doesn’t mean that they aren’t potent and powerful, and this book builds on some of the more common technophobic fears to create three new monsters for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game.

The Traveler’s Guide to the Galaxy series is devoted to bringing you the latest and greatest news from the fringes of the galaxy. Whether it’s reports of new alien civilizations that we’ve only just made contact with, or detailed profiles of flora and fauna from the corners of the galaxy, or gazetteers of whole new worlds just waiting to be explored, if you want to expand your horizons and chart a course for adventure, look no further than the Traveler’s Guide to the Galaxy.
