Hey FentonGib, Right now we aren't sure exactly what's happening with Reign of Discordia, though we are committed to seeing new material released for it in one form or another. To recap, we've had issues getting new material from certain (to remain unnamed) freelancers, there have been issues with a...

I apologize that I accidentally skipped over you when sending out replies. There was a lot more interest in this than I was expecting.

At present, I have the writers I need for this project, but there will likely be more opportunities in the future.

While I don't tend to confused this setting with the Third Imperium setting, I have confused it with another MGT setting out (or in the works) by the CthulhuTech guys. Or is Reign of Discordia that setting? :oops: Nope, no relation between the Cthulhutech people and the RoD people. RoD is my own pe...

Could you tell me more about the alien races you have in Reign? One of the only gripes I have with the 3I is that the main aliens are "Dog" people and "Lion" People. I am interested in seeing what other options you may have come up with. Absolutely! I wanted the aliens to run the gamut from the fam...

Freelance Writer Needed for Reign of Discordia/Traveller Pro

Hey everyone! Gun Metal Games is currently looking for a freelance writer to work on a 96-page book for the Reign of Discordia setting. So you're probably wondering, "Hey, Mr. Freelance Writer Guy, why aren't you writing it?" The answer to that is that I'm working on novels right now and I simply do...

I hate to nitpick, but I believe that Greyhawk and FR were actually connected through the plane of shadows. But that is a completely different tangent. Back to your regularly scheduled discussion about a really cool setting. Actually, now that you mention it, there is the theory that every conceiva...

This seems to be one of the biggest points of confusion, and I admit that it doesn't help that the major (though now defunct) political entity in the setting is called the Stellar Imperium. Frankly, that term gets a lot of play in scifi these days because no one dares call their big evil galactic em...

By all accounts, Reign of Discordia, will adequately supported by its creator. Indeed this is the case. Right now there's some material that was originally created for True20 that needs to be converted to Traveller, there's sourcebooks in the works, and I'll definitely be supporting the setting wit...

Hey has anyone actually gotten this book in their hot little hands and read it? What do they think of this book? Is it worth it? I know nothing of the books that it must be based on, and my only question is is it of value to actually get or not? Looking at the deck plans for it's ships, they seem a...

Essentially, my review said it is a good setting but I found that it needs more detail to make it work. I have the d20 stuff and tried not be distracted by what I already know. So I only hope that more supplements will be forthcoming, as it is a different universe than the OTU (and a very good one)...

Looks nice although only 7 careers seems a little "lite" for Traveller... but we'll see when it comes out. Hey Gamerdude, As the author of the setting and the guy who did most of the conversion to Traveller, let me tell you a little more about what you can expect and what my design philosophy was i...

Finally, look out for Reign of Discordia in our Flaming Cobra range. Within the pages of this book players can fight against the R'Tillek and their crusade of extermination against the known species, fight to protect the independence of dozens of worlds, participate in the cold war between Earth an...

Got it! FYI - It shows up as a separate download. One question (well several related questions) that the starmap brings up that I don't feel are explained very well in the book. Ships are given Jump Drive ratings, but you don't spend any time explaining how that translates to your Tachyon Drive rea...

Just as soon as we can possibly get it to you. As Dave said though, we might be looking at Q1 2010. Not sure yet as there remains much to do.

Just thought I'd chime in here since RoD is kind of my baby (and David's, of course). I didn't want the Traveller conversion to just be a straight transition, and certain design decisions were made.... The first thing I addressed was the fact that the original book was actually written very quickly....

From what has been mentioned so far, Firefly, Mass Effect, and Farscape interest me the most. Renewing Babylon 5 if a complicated issue, I'm sure. I'd love to see it, but I question whether I would spend money for much more in the line. The D20 guidebooks that we have are great. The system works and...

Hi guys, Apologies for the ISA, but they could just not be squeezed in (this is one of those books that ballooned quickly during development). However, despair not! All B5-Traveller players will be getting the ISA ships for free over the next couple of months! Good deal. My copy just showed up toda...
