Forbidden Planets

A facinating article on exoplanets and how so many are breaking the rules we once thought were set in stone. Would be nice to see Traveller taking this new science into account when generating new systems. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/07/forbidden-planets-understanding-alien-worlds-once-thoug...

Re: Poll: Your preferred sector(s)

I prefer to run in the Spinward Marches, where most of the published material has been set. I have always wanted to run a Solomani campaign set in the Solomani Rim with Solomani characters, but that hasn't happened yet.

Re: Alternate interstellar travel.

This is very similar to space travel in Niven/Pournel's Co-Dominion and that used in the Wing Commander computer game. The Co-Dominion needed no drive to enter a jump point, but had to find them because they were hidden. Wing Commander used some sort of drive to open the jump points once they were l...

Re: Pre-Order the Traveller Starter Box Set

I'm happy to wait the 3 to 4 months on the pre-order to get the PDF free from Mongoose.

Speaking of which, I'll pre-order this on payday.

Re: Starter Kit Book 1 as a separate item?

Quick-start rules and pre gens is definitely the way to go.

Re: Marc Miller Interview at Stargazer's World

To be honest, I found the novel very difficult to read, and didn't finish it; twice. I should give it another go at least.

Medic (Aslan)

Warsprite-Class Cruiser

Does anyone have official stats for the Warsprite, or is it a home-grown vessel
