But IMHO Traveller has the inferior game system compared to RQ (and i assume that SpaceQuest would have been RQ in space). I am not very fond of CT/MGT task system in particular (and of roll over systems in general). On the other hand I find percentile roll under systems much more intuitive. (Chanc...

Well; I'm back home from my holidays and no Mercenary for me yet... Which in this particular case suits me well, as the post office would have returned my copy to sender for failing to pick it up within the established time frame...

Have all the MGP preorders been shipped?

Can anybody give me a cogent list of the books in these series, order, titles, authors, etc? I own and have read Falkenberg's Legion many times. Was not aware there were other books that shared the same universe! Just a quick search of the Wikipedia produced the following list: The CoDominium Serie...

I am finishing reading "Mote in God's Eye" during my seaside holidays, and found the book very Travelleresque (or rather the other way around! :wink: )... a Second Empire of Man rising from the ashes of a very advanced First Empire, different technology levels due to collapse and interstellar wars, ...

It's difficult to miss if you do an Internet search for it. :wink:

BTW, vargr1, EABA has always been one of my systems of choice for running Traveller. :D

Space 1889

If at all possible, please MGP, try and get the license (from Frank Chadwick I think?)!

And please make it a cute full-colour book! :P

With quite a bunch of supplements! :twisted:

Would asking for S1889 miniatures be too much? :lol:

Re: So Amazon Cancelled My Preorder of SM

I got an email this morning from Amazon that they cancelled my preorder of Spinward Marches. Is this just me or is this happening to others as well? amazon.com cancelled my preorder of Mercenary :shock: , and then amazon.co.uk cancelled my preorder of the SM book. :evil: So it's not happening only ...

Expect to see a Striker in the future too, though we are currently discussing whether it should have miniatures support or not.
Please pretty please do make miniatures for the new Striker! :P

Thanks for the revised deck plans, MGP.

However, I feel the graphics are not very high definition, are they?

Is it possible to have the new pdfs resampled to let's say 300 dpi?

Thanks!

Matthew,

Amazon unilaterally cancelled my preorder of "Mercenary" allegedly because they lacked a solid release date for this supplement... Any news about when to expect this book?

Space 1889!

I was thinking the other day... whay don't MGP try and get a licence from Mr. Frank Chadwick to publish a new version of that Victorian/steampunk pearl Space 1889?

I'll hopefully have it in my hands within a week.
For those of us still with the books on preorder at amazon.com... any word about when will they be finally available?

Thanks!

Anyone pre-order from Amazon? I did. Still no book. Amazon doesn't even show an estimated ship date for it... I preordered from amazon.com, too...

I have yet another question for Mongoose:

Any chance that you release character minis for the Traveller universe (you know, Aslan, K'kree, Hiver, Zhodani,Vilani, etc.)?

Congrats for the licence!
