New Edition of Traveller is Here!

Postby MongooseMatt » Thu Jan 21, 2016 3:23 pm

The new edition of Traveller, tirelessly playtested during the beta period last year by countless players, has now been released in PDF format! You can grab your own copy right now by going to:

The print version is expected in stores at the beginning of April, and you can reserve your copy to be sent to you on the day of release right here:

We are already beavering away on the first round of supplements, which have also been subjected to the rigours of the beta playtest, making this the most cohesive and solid edition of Traveller yet!

You can get a peek at what we have planned for Traveller this year right here:

Congratulations! I have just purchased it (or course). Downloading as I type!

Now, all we need is a license for 3rd party work... Traveller could now burst forward as the new go-to sci-fi RPG for many people!

One question about pdf.
If I pre order the book and the screen on the mongoose web site, will I get also for free the pdf like if was ordering on leisuregames.com as usual thanks to the bits and mortar program? :)

Matt enters the coupon in DTRPG for the beta purchasers and DTRPG directly applies it to you or you follow the link in the mail that we just received.

And this also how a lot of crowdfunding deliveries are working now for the backers: you receive a special link or the coupon applies directly.

I just checked with the PDF :) we need to follow the link provided in the mail .

Just skimmed through the book, and I really like the artwork - even the equipment chapter looks gorgeous now and (for me) captures the Traveller flair very well!

Have I missed it or is there no blank character sheet?

Oh irony - here I was plugging the new edition on Facebook, and it seems I somehow didn't get a coupon.
Maybe they're going out in waves?

I don't think you missed it...I can't find one either. That's messed up. There is no blank subsector map either...

Are those coupons automatic, or do I need to request one?
Or should I stop being impatient? ;)

I was hoping to get the book before my lunch break. So I guess in a way, it doesn't matter if I don't get the link for a few hours now.

I checked the preview to get an idea of how complete the new core rule book is but there is no table of contents for it. Does it include comprehensive star ship construction and sector creation rules?

Edit: Oh never mind. My will to want overrode my patience to wait and I went and bought it... :o

Great news.

Will I get the $20 discount if I (pre-)order the book too or is it just for the pdf?
