And are you happy with it? I put it right up there as one of the best Traveller supplements in my collection. Yes I am. If I wasn't in the middle of a Pirates of Drinax campaign, I'd be right into it. It's the perfect setting to get into real science and exploration - and a great sandbox too. I als...

I'll stress that I'm just a fan and, therefore, I don't *know*, but from the bits I've gathered: - Beyond the Claw will be a new sector sourcebook for the Spinward Marches, made in hardback for the Traveller 2nd edition line. - The Shadow of Sindal will be a final optional add-on adventure to augmen...
I'm fairly certain that we are going to see a significant facelift in the presentation of this line, and that takes time to get right. For me, any earlier than the timetable they've lined up would have alarm bells ringing. Jan '19 looks about right to me, after the Traveller line is well established...
Mushrooms are a fungi, and have a particular cellular design to categorise it as such. Viruses, also, generally have an RNA strip that integrates with a hosts DNA and other species don't have full blown DNA either. It really isn't beyond the boundaries of science fiction that different planets have ...
The problem as I see it is that there is a desire to do fully developed 'splat' books for each of the major races. It's what has happened before, and these take time developing. For most groups, however, all they really need is a decent write up for the race and then just use the normal character ge...

The basic system is as simple as it gets. The ship design and various random generation charts add complexity. It's as crunchy as D&D in it's own way.

Y'know, at this stage, what I'd actually like considered is one, big "Aliens of the Imperium" sourcebook, to detail in some capacity all of the major Alien species - Aslan, Vargr, Hivers, Kree, maybe others, and then maybe another book strictly for Humanity species - Vilani, Solomani and Zhodani. Al...

There has been some feedback, here and there on the new Paranoia game, but not an awful lot and I guess criticisms like these should be discussed. To answer the first question, yes, we probably did need a new edition. Mongoose as a company needs to make revenue from their license, while fans tend to...
Troupe style play is mostly discussed, as the game that coined the idea, in Ars Magica. In this game there are three tiers of character type: Magi (Wizards, very powerful), Companions (competent characters) and Grogs (Underlings, soldiers and servants). They collectively form a Covenant, which is a ...
