Re: Clement Sector Forum

I checked out facebook, but it looked like 1-liner comments about the photos of products posted. Until you get a forum setup, I guess I will post my questions on this thread. I'll be sure to sprinkle in comments on Mongoose products as well... :wink: Ok, now for some questions: 1) The Zimm Drive app...

Clement Sector Forum

I recently purchased some of the Clement Sector books and was looking for a place to ask questions and discuss their universe. I searched for a forum dedicated to GKG but came up empty. Does anyone know which forum(s) people typically use to discuss the GKG products and universe? It didn't feel appr...

The Quick Preview works now, but the Full Preview says the file is damaged and can't be repaired.

Coming soon! Art by Bradley Warnes. Cover layout by Stephanie McAlea. Looks interesting. I just purchased some products for the Clement Sector recently, it's an interesting universe. I went to your blog but it really didn't have any more information than what you posted here. What exactly will be i...

Re: Prime Directive - nearly 4 years.

I'm sure this is common knowledge to many here, but I did not realize Mongoose was considering a new edition. Where did you see this? I would like to read up on this possibility. I didn't see it listed in their State of the Mongoose entry.

My advice is to work out a system that makes sense to you and your players.
How does your system work F33d?

Re: Bundle of Holding

I saw they ran at least one Mongoose offer last year. I'm hoping they run more in the future and maybe even re-visit any old ones they ran. Hint hint Mongoose/Mr. Varney.

Re: Solo Traveller - What do You Want?

I was looking at the 2300 material on DriveThruRPG and noticed there was a Traveller adventure for the setting that was solo play. From the description, I got the impression it was an intro to the setting. Do you need any other 2300 books to play that adventure? It was called Terror's Lair.

Bundle of Holding

Bundle of Holding has a MegaTraveller bundle right now for people who want some of the old source material or adventures. It will run another 18 hours or so. I haven't read the MegaTraveller books in years, but I imagine it wouldn't be hard to convert to Mongoose. https://bundleofholding.com/present...

Endless Quest Books.

Good point of those books, but I meant modules. I remember M1 - Riddle of the Minotaur was one of them.

Re: Solo Traveller - What do You Want?

The future for solo play is likely the computer, much like I believe it's mostly today. And Lego. And probably dolls. And books, and models, and crafts, and all sorts of things! I think you are classifying people in too tight of a niche that maybe you personally fall under. I like to write games, s...

Re: Solo Traveller - What do You Want?

This might be a great idea for promoting Mongoose Traveller, you have a book of say 400 pages, and the writer has to write out each possibility, it could be an e-book I think or a paperback. The Lone Wolf format usually took me an hour or two to read through, and you could go through it multiple ti...

Re: What happened to Book 11: Pirate?

'Aerospace' is for Traveller, but the 2300 setting. I understand the distinction, was just using shorthand. Thank you for the clarification though. I've considered purchasing the 2300 core rule book, is it any good? I have enough trouble trying to find someone who wants to play the standard Travell...

Re: What happened to Book 11: Pirate?

I just read through the 2300 section of the 2014 review and saw Aerospace was listed as a 2300 book, so that question is answered. I should have thought to check that ahead of time.

Oh bummer, I was really looking forward to this book as well. I would rather you push it back and make sure the content is good than rush it though.

Electronics or Electronics?

Hi fellow Travellers! I was looking through the skills section of the core rulebook and noticed Electronics appears as a specialty for two different skills. It's under both Engineer and Physical Science. The definition in the science section is fairly sparse, but seems to follow the same idea as the...
