Re: Mongoose at GenCon?

Yep, I was at GenCon and the only impression the Dealer Hall gave was that Mongoose was out of the roleplaying business. I was surprised there wasn't any of their minis games either (and there were some big launches like Attack Wing from other mini games companies).

Re: Psionic Suppression: A High Law?

I guess if the Empress signs the 65 Supression Laws, that makes them High Laws then?

Thx for that dragoner- really useful. :)

Psionic Suppression: A High Law?

So, apparently during the Psionic repressions Psionics Suppressions (800 to 826):The revelation of scandals (financial, ethical, and moral) within the psionics institutes in the years 772 to 798 resulted in a shift in public opinion against the institutes. Over a 26 year period, various institute ch...

Alien Module Solomani- sold out?

I was looking in the Mongoose shop to buy Alien Module Solomani- but couldnt see or search it out anywhere. Thats a bit odd as all the other Alien modules are in stock. Has Solomani sold out, and will there be hardcopies anywhere?

Thx.

Re: Lore question- 4FW/Zhodani/Ine Givar

Well I'm not sure I can afford to subscribe, just for a single article. Can you summarise perhaps the aim of your article, or give me the bibliography you drew on?

The biggest source I've found so far is actually the Living Trav adventure Festive Occasion.

Thx

Lore question- 4FW/Zhodani/Ine Givar

So I'm designing a Spinward Marches Imperial scenario in which the Zhodani and returned POW's play a large role. Its called "The Zhodani Candidate" So I'm thinking its a game set in 1090, 6 years after the Fourth Frontier War. While Prisoners could have been taken from naval ships, can anyone sugges...

Re: Alien Module: Vilani?

A question - can you tell the difference between a Vilani and a Solomani just by looking at them? And is there difference genetic (only Vilani have green hair and mauve eye colour, Solomani dont) or is it just cultural - only Vilani wear mumu's and berets? And are not most citizens of the Imperium d...

Alien Module: Vilani?

I know it wasnt in the original series, but given that we've had Alien Modules on Zhodani, Solomani & Darriens (and a supplement on Swordies), can we expect an alien module on the Vilani too? I for one can never pronounce some of those Vilani buro names, so could come in handy- perhaps with an optio...

Re: AM: Solomani & Solomani Rim books? How do they combine?

Thank you for the explanation, David, but how do the Alpha Crucis Sector and Sol Sectors compare? Is the Confederation a bigger deal in AC than in Sol?

AM: Solomani & Solomani Rim books? How do they combine?

So, how does the Alien Module Solomani book fit together with the upcoming 3I: Solomani Rim release? Usually the Alien Modules cover a sector or subsector, so does AM:S cover the same Sol sector as Solomani Rim or do they address different sectors? (EDIT- looking at the AM:S preview, apparently its ...

Re: Alien Module 5: Solomani - on PDF

Have I miscounted, but is this the 3rd Traveller book in a row to have misprint issues? - from Secrets of the Ancients (missing chapter) to Aramis (messed up spaceship) and now Solomani (just messed up?)

Re: Aramis: The Traveller Adventure - Now Available

Does that imply that if you are not releasing through normal channels and not reprinting that the only place to buy a physical of the book is from Mongoose directly? Or will anyone else be allowedmto sell it in the future?
