Re: Terra/Sol Games?

Wow, I didn't know John died. Except for the stuff by MJD John was their #1 writer, but also editor, line art coordinator, layout person. Mike Johnson mentioned to me many a time how John was a one-man publishing house. Loosing all those critical skills was definitely a critical blow to the company ...

I have every GURPS Trav book published by SJGames for GURPS 3rd, and all but the most recent MGP Trav books (hey I can o...

Re: Running OTPs In Legend

Somewhat thought-provoking topic, this. What are your thoughts on One True Pairings (OTPs) in your Legend games? Do they crop up? In searching the web for some explanation of this (why does every gamer/geek assume *everyone* even remotely interested in the same thing know every little piece of minu...

Re: Running OTPs In Legend

As far as anything "sexual" I don't outright forbid it, but neither do I do a damm thing to discourage it, with many reasons. 1. In my early AD&D days one group had this saying/chant about their mission was to "rape, pillage, rape, burn, rape, loot.. ..oh and did we mention 'rape'?" Was a complete t...

Well, just for everyone who might be interested, there is a Traveller circle/group on Google+ run by Andrew (not that 'andreww') with like a hair under 200 members, a few online games being run (one with a good site on Obsidian Portal). It's a fun group. The link is: https://plus.google.com/communi...

Re: [ACTA:SF] Of rulebooks...

there is a big difference between a 2nd Ed and a 2nd printing that incorporates all rules changes and errata. In reality what you are waiting for is a second printing (with all errata and rules changes added). Seeing that will depend on how much was printed and how fast they sell.

Rules being used are Mongoose, small ship universe. Using design rules from High Guard, and a couple High guard pre-designed small boats. (Because I struggle a little designing them, so someone who can design small boats would be nice) The Campaign will start out as a Play-By-Email game till I can ...

Quite a definite buy here.

Let me add at least covering technology, background, and personalty types from our Feudal period (what most fantasy settings are based on) up through modern and then (separately) sci-fi.

Which is not to say that Mongoose couldn't do its own of course, the original novel being long out of copyright and in the public domain. Actually, in an article I read just today about the new Oz movie, it was stated that Disney (somehow) owns the rights to all 18 of the novels, just not the Judy ...
