White Dwarf Traveller Articles

Postby Jeff Hopper » Mon Jun 06, 2016 7:41 am

White Dwarf had some great Classic Traveller articles during their run. What are the chances of those articles being reprinted or made available for Mongoose Traveller?

Had to refresh my memory via https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Dwa ... agazine%29.

The White Dwarf "Best ofs" were 1) Best of White Dwarf Articles and 2) Best of White Dwarf Scenarios and I believe there were 3 volumes of each.

I think it possible that you might be able to find pdf copies of the White Dwarf's in question - however, I should point out these would be of doubtful legality.

Having said that, if you can find the original's, they are well worth a look and unlikely to ever be reprinted (given that you'd need both GW's and the original author's permissions to reprint, in all likelihood).

It will not help much, but I hereby give you the author's permission for this one: 59) CORE: Consulary Office of Reconnaissance and Exploration.

The rights to the non-Warhampster stuff reverted to the Authors, and what is posted there are the Articles by Andy Slack as Posted by Andy. All above board as such...

Sorry Infojunky - I thought I'd made it clear that I thought pdf copies of the full WD magazines would be of doubtful legality. Andy Slack would, of course, be within his rights to post up his own work.
