I always look for ways to keep printed and therefore canonical stuff true without wholesale changes.
Oh well, I keep hoping Matt admits defeat, and give us the Holy Grail of Mongoose Traveller: official Errata files for the entire book line! :P

Naah, too complicated. Just replace Hkakh with a different world in the commercial PDFs of Pirates of Drinax, and pretend nothing happened.

Who controls Hkakh?

JTAS Volume Three has this: The Arhiyao Clan : Another requested article, this time from the old Compendiums. A close look at a minor Aslan clan. Loved that article, but something needs clarification. In The Prodigal Outcast ( Pirates of Drinax , book 1, pages 212 and 220), the planet Hkakh (Ranib/...

Re: T20’s on Bundle of Holding- useful for a MG2 game?

Define "relevant." Hmm, "still existing"/"valid"/"canon"/etc. in 1105, maybe? You're right, adapting whatever you want for your campaign is easy, but I still would like to have that K'Kree/Gateway Sector book hinted by Matt in the State Of the Mongoose 2018 thread, not the old version of the same. ...

The Gateway setting Martin wrote looks great. Very well written with lots of intriguing factions, astrography, and subplots.
But the T20 books are set in the year 993, how much is still relevant 'today' :wink: for Mongoose Traveller players?

Baldo: what are you hoping to discover?

I've seen the starmaps for the Dynchia and the Girug'kagh articles, and I've a few questions: 1): It's good to see Melantris is now 'official' (see The Source of Truth™ , where it's listed as "Unofficial"), but how many planets the Dynchia Comitia controls?

Re: Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society - Kickstarter is Live!

I've read only a few articles of the Free Sample so far, but I have two suggestions: 1): As a Italian native, I say "Simone Garibaldi" is basically wrong (the name, NOT the article). In Italy, "Simone" is a male name (women here use "Simon a "), and "Garibaldi" is a fairly rare surname (and usually ...

OK, I've seen your Facebook post :D , but I have different questions: 1): What's the page count of the new Aliens of Charted Space books?

Why were Admiral Peras' couriers, carrying these urgent message globes, only capable of Jump-1? No, they had Jump-2 minimum. The reason for the 'short' jump to Thebus is recorded in the black box (page 129): "The courier jumped from Noricum to this system, hoping to rendezvous with an escort flotil...

I would really like to run one of these naval campaigns. It's a big challenge but I think it could be a lot of fun. An opportunity to have Traveller meet Star Trek a bit.

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

I could deny the use of the pocket warship, either by Oleb getting irritated with them, or some mechanical issue, but I’d prefer to avoid such forced measures. Denying the players their hard-gained battleship is pretty unfair, this reminds me of those D&D dungeons where your high-level characters w...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Do they still have the treasure ship? The Hrakoea may take great pleasure in the mighty imperium treasure ship be used to haul Aslan cattle. On second thought, only pirates would have that ship, so maybe not. But in book 2, page 192, you find this: "Ahroay’if traders looked suspiciously at Hrakoea ...
