does Traveller 2E not include aliens?

Does Traveller 2E not include stats for players to play aliens? If not, are there any books with aliens for PCs to run?

does the Fall of Tinath PDF include the 6 pre-gens?

I want to run an adventure at Gen Con. Does anyone know if the Fall of Tinath PDF includes the 6 pre-gens from the starter set? Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply. That is good news!

2300 AD 2nd edition or 1st edition?

I really enjoy Traveller but I want to run 2300 AD next. Is the 2nd edition to go with the new playtest rules a long way off? Would I be better off getting the 1E High Guard and Vehicles? I want to support the 2nd edition, but I haven't seen 2300 AD mentioned anywhere for new publications next year,...

I cannot, however, find any errata to match the 2nd prinitng PDFs and I don't want to spend $14 on the PDF even though it is GM's week over o...

Traveller: Minor aliens

I used to have a T4 book about aliens (the minor ones had many entries as I recall) and I know GURPs aliens books also included some minor aliens. I'd like to see a book on several minor aliens for Mongoose Traveller.

Where can I find info on the alien called the Yont?

In the first adventure for Pirates of Drinex, Hroal has two Yonts on his crew. Where can I find out what a Yont is?

For that matter, is there info anywhere on other minor alien races for Mongoose Traveller?

Re: 2300AD character creation changes from Traveller

The core mechanic is much the same, in that characters are randomly generated. Beyond that, though, there is the addition of DNA modifications for characters from frontier worlds, cybernetics as part of chartacter background, a traits system built-in to the random character generation system, chang...

Re: print/pdf bundle for 2300AD?

Also, if Mongoose ever wants to offer a subscription I'd be onboard for one for 2300AD that includes print and pdf! We have considered such things in the past - if there is more interest, we'll go into it more seriously. Anyone else? As someone who has never seen 2300AD, I would like to know what d...

print/pdf bundle and/or subscription service request

I mentioned this in the Traveller forum but thought I'd add it here. I'd like to see print/pdf bundles for Mongoose books. I also wouldn't mind seeing a subscription (auto shipping each new 2300 AD title each month for example). Not sure if the subscription part is possible but the bundle should be....

2300AD character creation changes from Traveller

I'm curious if there will be any changes from the Traveller character creation rules beyond the obvious--need an Earth nationality, aliens have changed etc. I'm considering starting a 2300AD campaign early with the Traveller rules and old supplements but I wouldn't want to have to retrofit too much.

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

Admittedly a bit of an aside, but I have always considered 2300 to have a similar feel to the universe of "Alien". With that, I am really looking forward to the upcoming release of "Prometheus" and am hopeful that the timing of its release will inspire some local gamers to want to play in the 2300 ...

I couldn't find anything with my web-search fu. Is 2300AD available as a print/pdf bundle or do both have to be purchased separately? Same goes for new titles for 2300AD going forward. Does pre-ordering help get it sooner or otherwise do anything helpful that I should know about? Also, if Mongoose e...

Re: New Alien Race for Traveller - Planet Mongoose

Great race. Lots of good ideas on how it can be used. Alien enough to seem otherwordly but still usable by a player. I like the random mutations. Also, the emphasis on medicine makes sense.
