Haven't seen the book myself yet, but for the most part (say 90%) Gareth basically edited and refashioned my rules text from the original 2004 Mongoose edition. Gareth also wrote a new mission for the book, the fine "Quantum Traitor."Arkku wrote:Authorship of the new rules seems unclear: the book itself lists Allen Varney as the writer/scapegoat and Gareth Hanrahan only as “additional material” (for reactor shielding?) while the Mongoose website lists him as the author of this edition. Was so much of the material written by Allen Varney that he retains the credit even though Gareth Hanrahan re-shaped it, or did they forget to changed the credit?
For the upcoming INTSEC rulebook (where you play Internal Security troopers of GREEN and BLUE Clearance), Gareth wrote quite a lot greater proportion of the text and introduced some new systems, so I hope the credits reflect that.
