Mongoose News - The Traveller Release Schedule

Postby msprange » Tue Oct 04, 2016 10:37 am

We have had lots of emails and a few forum posts asking pretty much the same thing - 'where is X for Traveller, eh?'

When we started work on the new edition of Traveller, we made a decision that books would go to print only when we felt they were ready and the Design Schedule we had in the office would be a set of guidelines rather than deadlines. Predictably, books now take longer to produce - however, we also feel their quality has soared over the past year. Happy with this process, we are going to continue it into 2017.

However, that still does not answer the question - where is all the cool Traveller stuff? Well, we have not been idle...

We have crunched through a few projects recently, burning the midnight oil, and we have brought Hannah on board, a new full-time graphical person (Referee's Briefing 4: Mercenary Forces was her very first publication and, I think you will agree, she hit the ground running!). We have also been busy beavering away on the writing and editorial side of things, and we can now announce a brand new release schedule for Traveller that carries us into 2017. You can find it here:

So, how reliable is this schedule, you will want to know!

As with all schedules, the further you go into the future, the more like fiction it becomes. The one question mark I have is the new Pirates of Drinax mega-campaign set. This set is a Big Ask overall (one 200 page book, one 256 page book, and a huge poster map, all in glorious full colour) and it is going to suck editorial and graphical resources like they are going out of fashion. However, we have also done a lot of prep work already on it.

Everything else though... is looking pretty good for those dates!
