Re: Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Trave

Looks like the first "Void" teaser is out on DriveThrough RPG. The first free preview looks like just the short fiction they previously made available for free under Chthonian Stars.

Re: Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Trave

My game is on Obsidian Portal, and is called Black Night.
Thanks, I'll take a look. I have never looked at the Obsidian Portal before.

Re: Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Trave

Well, I guess I'll consider myself lucky to have gotten the printed book! I really don't do well with pdf so having the book is a big deal to me. I wonder how big the print run was. Does anybody on this forum have the answer? If so, please chime in. Also I wonder why the POD is a no-go? I understand...

Re: Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Trave

When I started this post I was hoping that someone who had been playing might share anything they had generated, as well as hoping to stir up discussion about Chthonian Stars for Traveller. I guess the interest in Chthonian Stars is limited to a very small group. That is too bad, but not totally sur...

Re: [Zozer Games] Solar System Traveller - playtest call

This is a great concept. I'll be interested as this develops. For my group, I am currently fleshing out details for a Chthonian Stars campaign. What you are producing would likely be very useful, even though not geared specifically to Sci-Fi horror. Of special interest to me are bases on the moons a...

Re: Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Trave

I got my hardcopy through someone who offered it to me post GenCon. If he is reading this, I want to again extend my sincerest thanks! I am leaving his name out so as he is not bugged by people seeking copies. I have looked and looked and have not seen them offered anywhere since. I had been asking ...

Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Traveller

So I have a hardcopy of Chthonian Stars for Mongoose's version of Traveller. It seems like a good addition to my Traveller library. First: I am curious if any other Traveller resources for Chthonian Stars are being considered by the powers that be at Mongoose. Second: Will Wildfire produce anything ...

Re: Chthonian Stars POD?

I now have a hard copy of Chthonian Stars! As I have stated before I love printed copies of RPGs. Perhaps it is the memories of my first introduction to gaming in the late 70's and early 80's. I am just sentimental for good games and the good old days. I see the inevitable trend toward ebooks, but I...

Re: Chthonian Stars POD?

That is great news! I assume it is the Traveller version and not the "Void" version.

I hope it appears on Drive through RPG this week!

Re: Chthonian Stars POD?

Chthonian Stars is finally in print, for you Traveller fans! We will be bringing POD copies of the book, full color hardcover and all awesome, to Gen Con. Not that many, mind you, so if you're interested, find us fast! Shortly after that debut, anyone can order from DriveThru RPG. Awesome! I'll ord...

Re: Chthonian Stars POD?

I was a substitute high school teacher when I was in Grad school. The first year or so I worked, I'd ask, 'How many of you have never read a book cover to cover?" Sadly 2 or 3 hands would go up. Then I'd ask, "Who has read 1, 2...5..." and so on, until I would ask, "How many have read more books tha...

Re: Chthonian Stars POD?

I suppose you are right about ebooks and PDFs.

I'm old school and still like the feel of paging through book. I know that I am archaic in that respect.

I do respect the desire to reduce the footprint of production. I guess it is time to get a digital reader of some sort.

Re: Chthonian Stars POD?

I still don't see what the problem is with releasing the Traveller version in POD.

It was well received, and it doesn't seem it would interfere with their independent rule system for Void.

Re: Chthonian Stars POD?

Sorry. Didn't mean to shout. :roll: I just keep hoping to see the POD. I looked into self printing, but it is problematic. The local print shops that do binding won't print without express permission from the copyright holder. I'd love for more info about what has happened, but you are probably corr...

Chthonian Stars POD?

I lost touch over the past 2 or 3 months.

Has anyone heard anything about Chthonian Stars ever being made available as a POD?

Seems a shame if the plans to do so were dropped! :(
