If errata is at manageable level, a pdf with corrections that I can print on sticker paper is enough for me.

Will we have something like that anytime soon?

Thanks.

Something like what Allen has described above happened with the GURPS Traveller module "Behind the Claw": a playtest copy accidentally went to the printer and a HUGE amount of errata followed.

The biggest problem I have with the existing miniatures lines is scale creep. Can you find SF miniatures for Traveller, Yes, old and new, but there scales are all over the place, from true 25mm to 30mm of the Rachkham, Star Wars and Reaper Chronoscope, all the other older scales floating around giv...

I have noticed that in the past year or so that several of the larger RPG companies delay shipping to Amazon (usually about a month) to give FLGSs an opportunity to sell to customers first. My Amazon preorder of High Guard just shipped (or so teey say). I wonder if mine will be one of the misprinte...

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?

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, ...

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:

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?
