Re: 2300AD is Back!

Read though the book now. It is nice to see so much of the classic stuff put back in. It is a big book with lots of info. Which is good. And no index. Which is bad. The thing that I think gets me the worst is the Travellerization of the whole thing. I could just not abide the haphazard Traveller cha...

Re: 2300 In Stock ?

It's supposed to be Kaefer throughout. Kaafer? That's kinda horrible. I wonder how that slipped through? I would have liked to have seen more art, too. I also wrote 25,000 words extra, which, among other things, meant that there was less room for art Well look at it this way, you have unintentional...

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

Minis! I Will Buy! I need Richileu, and an Aconit or two. And a Bismark. Oh, and fighters too. Well, I need most of them. I have asked before and, since I am utterly useless at 3D modelling; How hard is it to convert a 3D image to a printable model?

Re: 2300AD Tools for Frontier Living

Sounds a lot like what was in the original 2300 GM's book. Hopefully updated and "Travellerized!" Hope not. I am actually a bit curious as to what that would mean, come to think of it. (yes i understand the lineage etc, but 2300AD is not Traveller) On a decidedly positive note, I find he cover art ...

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

M-kay. Not my non-existing Traveller-collection, though. Not to say Traveller delenda est, but I see no reason to base collections on core rules. Me? I just look forward to a nicely updated 2300AD universe in a massive book.

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

I have heard of the Mongoose tendency to not be overly much on time, so I guess I was prepared for some delays. Let us hope that they will manage to get it out within 3 months late tops at least.

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

I chose that picture as a reply to the earlier comment of the non-present carpace on the new illustration. The nature of the carpace is not evident from the sourcebook cover since that only shows the face. I never saw that magazine illustration. Sounds like a good one. I always liked the Käfer conce...

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

Inside art varied greatly. I like some of it, whilst much of it is not really great. However, I don't recall ever having been confused by its rendering of Käfers.

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

I agree. It is only vaguely similar to this. If you squint.

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

5 pages of Kaefer pro/contra and one proper preview content comment? Feel free to correct me. Me? I suppose I would have appreciated a 2300ized attempt at Swedish. Would probably be very similar to the somewhat inexact expressions of one of the more popular muppets :)

Re: Sorting things out: 2300AD is not Traveller

Sounds fair. Lets hope it gets "enough attention" then! Subjected to only limited exposure of Trav classic, I often find the various attempts at reconciling the universes confusing and rather pointless, but thats me. As a side note, I am one of those weird ones who go for setting first, sets of game...

Sorting things out: 2300AD is not Traveller

Now when there is actually a game, is it not time that 2300ad got its own section? At the moment information about this setting is drowning in Travellerstuff, which while fine stuff I am sure, I am not at all interested in.

Re: 2300AD art page

I am not surprised, I have always had the impression that combat scenarios are the focus of almost 90 % of all cam- paigns. As mentioned elsewhere, I suspect that "sense of wonder" is usually understood as "I wonder how to kill it". :lol: Too true. I find the military stuff a bit boring and I have ...

Re: 2300AD art page

Interesting choices of imagery. Reminds of an old topic that I can't remember where it was at about game styles and campaign themes in 2300AD. Seem mostly militaristic so far with a tad of otherness on top.
