I rather like a lot of David and Diane Arkenstone stuff, it gives a"serenity" feel to the music, and mix in a few action movie soundtracks and standard classical

What House Rules are you using?

I'm curious as to what folks will be house-ruling in their games. . . below are what I have decided upon so far, based on the original playtesting and what I have decided after reading through the book a couple of times. There will be more, I'm sure. =================== Characteristic Generation: Ro...

Archery

Has anyone determined how they will handle Archery skills yet? I'm currently debating on it being resolved under one of the Athletics Subsets or creating a whole new skill. I figure Crossbows can use Gun Combat [Slug Rifle] or [Slug Pistol] dependent upon the size of the crossbow, but regular bows a...

I had to force myself not to run into town (25 miles one way) and pick up my book at lunch. I'm going to try really hard to concentrate on work the rest of the afternoon, because I'm not likely to get anything productive done the rest of the week. :D

Mtrav Character Sheet

My group has developed a taste for using landscape style sheets (they take up less room on the table), so I offer up my translation of the Character sheet for Traveller, based on the preview one. I'll be doing some additional sheets, such as a detailed inventory sheet, ship records (after I get the ...

Thanks for the reply Mr. Sprange.

Now I know when to start bugging my FLGS about ordering it (Hopefully they've pre-ordered, since I've been dropping anvil sized hints since the beginning of the public Playtests :lol: )

Actual Release

Now that we are seeing all these cool previews, does that mean that you folk at Mongoose can give us an idea of when we can obtain the actual books?

These previews have got me drooling over getting the book :D

Thanks for the previews and the good works that ya'll put out.

Thank you. . I was developing them for publication, and that is still a possibility at some point.

We're currently working on a setting using the RQ rules and playing around with the Traveller Playtest :D

At one point I was working on a Post-Apocalyptic setting using a modern variant of the RQ skills. Some of these are a great departure from the core rules (and my group has incorporated some of these ideas into our fantasy game) Feel free to visit my google group and see if anything helps you for you...
