Re: Traveller Project Updates

Sorry to hear this, I am so looking forward to more 2300AD material. I love the fact that 2300AD was folded into Traveller. Makes the game really easy to play.

Your hard work on 2300AD is much appreciated.

Split from GT

This was the best THING that ever happened to Traveller.

I love MT2 what a game. The prob with GT is you didn’t have Social Standing any longer and man, did that suck for me.

Long live MT2. Love this version of Traveller.

Any METAPLOT ideas would be much appreciated like the GDW versions had.

Re: What's Traveller5 like?

Ok, let’s say 5.10 is cool. It needs support material. The background of the game needs supplements. All the versions of Traveller I own have lots of them. And they are all a hoot to read.

Re: What's Traveller5 like?

I loved the Metaplots GDWs Traveller had, the 5th Frontier war wars so cool. I recall the WAR issue of JTAS. Amazing stuff. Now, that is where a beloved Imperium rocks, defending an Imperium you loved made for great adventure in its day. The last MegaTraveller published by GDW was so fun to play. It...

Re: What's Traveller5 like?

What we need is a version of Traveller that has a recovered 4th Imperium at about TL 18, about 1350 or so. And BIG, really big. With an Emperor the people love and an Archduke of the Spinward Marches equally loved. GURPS Traveller had by far the most powerful and fun Third Imperium. Ya, I have hand...

Re: What is "canon" these days?

I mainly run CT with lots of rules from Mega, TNE, GT thrown in. I play Traveller as generic SF and do whatever I want for adventures.

I do run some Third Imperium stuff similar to Canon, but I do pick and choose on the Ancients, Technology, Starships, etc.

Re: What's Traveller5 like?

The only thing worse than T4 is T5. Why on earth is there two versions of the same RPG on the market? Avoid T5 like the plague. What is this 5.10? The third edition of the 5th edition? What we need is a version of Traveller that has a recovered 4th Imperium at about TL 18, about 1350 or so. And BIG,...

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

I like the preview quite a bit. I am also certain that the 2300AD book once released will be a must have book for your Traveller collection.

Some people actually play these games to get away from computers and perfer a nice set of books to work from. They use paper character sheets filled out by hand, dice and the rule books. Now - for .pdfs -- some people like them, some people don't - just like hardbound books and paperbacks. Now a .pd...

Great Job!

Overall, a smashing job! I really like this book quite a bit. A bargin at $15 dollars. The game can be played as is - or modified to fit your current campaine. The first way I'm going to use it is in a Third Imperium game - I'll have some crafty cultists up to no good in the Solomani Rim area..........

8) Back when Classic Traveller was generic I did a Star Trek adventure. It played very well. Nobody wore armor and the phasers did 32 d6 damage - so you didn't want to get hit by one. We used a version of the Starships combat rules from book 2 that was heavily modified. Overall - this was a great wa...

8) The licence is for ten years and is renewable. FYI - Classic Traveller the first time around went tens years and Gurps Traveller also had ten years of continuous publications also. Personally, ten years for an edition is fine, and the talk so far is that Mongoose Traveller will renew in 2017 and ...

One thing I like about Mongoose Traveller is the fact that it has many backgrounds to choose from: Hammer's Slammers, Strontium Dogs, - and now this one - which I like. I don't believe that everyone will like all backgrounds - but there is much to people like me to like about this one. Dark Conspira...

Canon is Classic Traveller publushed by GDW, Mega Traveller published by GDW, TNE and Mongoose Traveller.

Gurps Traveller is not Canon, but is an Alternate Traveller Universe where Canon Traveller didn't happen.
