I'm curious where the fact that the Imperial Marines uniform is maroon came from. In the Imperial Encyclopedia (MegaTraveller) it says the starburst insignia on marine uniforms is maroon. Is there some resource I don't have access to that delineates out uniform colors? Several illustrations from th...

N is connected to the starship combat of the universe.

The fictional universe begins with another letter (two actually).

Actually, I'm quite thrilled that SW is getting a license for Space 1889. (Speaking of which, I played Deadlands Reloaded at a local mini-con last weekend and had a GREAT time. I played a pre-genned Huckster from New Orleans, so I got to lay the faux-Cajun accent on really thick, mon enfants. ) Tha...

The fleet scale Imperial and Zhodani starships are 1:7,200. The adventure-class scout, free trader and pinnace are a different, much bigger scale, but I don't recall if it has been stated. Incidentally, they look bigger than the adventure-class starships RAFM issued for the Traveller: The New Era in...

Excuse me, as I am sure this has been covered before:

Is something in this book that is new (i.e., that has not been published previously in S&P or another source?).

Thanks! :D

IMHO Mongoose should do a wargame in the Traveller universe. If Mongoose Traveller had been a short-lived endeavour one could understand this not happening - but now that the line has been running for several years and that there have been dozens of books published, there is little excuse. :twisted:...

This one together with the earlier Transhuman Space and GURPS Terradyne are definitely on my list.

Warning: they are interplanetary, in-system RPGs as opposed to interstellar. But they are awesome.
