Very unhappy

Where does one go to express STRONG displeasure with the service from the Mongoose Games warehouse in the United States?

Re: I hope mongoose isn't heading down the same path as Wiza

Wizards was a clear picture of what not to do. When they turned their back on the SRD and the OGL they stabbed a lot of us Indie Pubs in the back. We supported them, propped them up, and introduced so many new people to their game. Every time we playtest a game we introduce new people to the game. ...

You want to start a fight? Just ask if Traveller is the rules or the setting. Oh, there are plenty of Traveller - related topics behind which lurks a fight. The Ancients. Vargr with horns. Aslan finger counts. Blue Darrians. The airlocks on Type-S scouts. Most of Mongoose Mercenary . :) don't forge...

Quite frankly, what Hunter Gordon and QLI have done darn near qualifies as fraud.

Re: REVIEWS SOLICITED: Babylon 5

I never had the time to become a Babylon 5 fan (nor have I had nor do I currently have cable TV), so I'm not qualified to write reviews of the B5-for-Traveller books. I'm therefore asking that someone else do so and submit the reviews to Freelance Traveller; in addition to commentary similar to tha...

Re: Pulp Traveller would it be possible to happen ever?

I was wondering if you ever thought of a Pulp style campaign book with nazi's to foil and Dino's and thing's set in that style of campaign? A Traveller pulp setting might be nice, but does it really have to include them again ? :( I am slightly tired of seeing these guys in almost every pulp game, ...

Re: Pulp Traveller would it be possible to happen ever?

:D Hi Mongoose Peeps I was wondering I was reading how some players were using your Traveller rules for Pulp style games. And as you have been putting out materials for the use of the traveller rules, while not the OTU but other sci-fi. I was wondering if you ever thought of a Pulp style campaign b...

another proper way to handle canon is not to spell it "cannon".

I'm sorry but I have finally cracked; this drives me nuts.

"Cannon" is a large freakin' weapon. Canon is only a large freakin' weapon when someone tries to beat you over the head with it in a Traveller discussion.

B5 Tech Levels

I could not find this information in the Universe of Babylon 5 book so...anyone have an idea what the tech levels of the various races mentioned in that book are? I think, based on homeworlds, that I know this, but I wanted to see what the assembled throng think

Re: How many people think GURPS Traveller is canon?

My question is this: Who thinks GURPS Traveller is cannonical in the same way (or to the same degree) that Classic Traveller is for Mongoose Traveller? I ask this as someone who was never all that impressed with GURPS, probably due to my experiences playing Steve Jackson's superior Fantasy Trip (se...

what would be really cool are some guidelines in S&P or elsewhere to allow conversion of ships from the d20 line to Traveler, just in case they don;t cover a particular ship that might be needed. Also: if the license sunsets in June or July, that does that mean the books go off-sale then or can they...

B5 Traveller ships observation

While perusing the Unverse of babylon 5 book I noticed a statement on page 90: "Note that Babylon 5 ships do not use jump drives". (This is true; some have Jump Point Generators but none fo them have the classic Traveller-style jump drive). Someone should have told that to whoever designed the Civil...

Got the book today and it is pretty good but I have some questions: 1.) Can we get a list of what skills in Traveller are not used in B5 and what the replacements, if any, might be? 2.) There seemed to be some kind of experience point system referenced in the early going in Legacy of War in S&P that...

Apparently Premiere is out of the Pocket Edition because my LGS tried to order it and said it was sold out.

High Guard in both its original form and this one never pretended to be about anything but Naval characters and matters.

Page 65, Computer Table in the Capital Ship Design section; the table still says "Jump Minimum", implying that a 200,000 ton ship with a Core/9 computer system cannot have less than Jump 6 The Sylea Class Battleship on page 101 has Core/9 computers...and is Jump 3.
