Can I just say that I'd love to see a mini book all about the Harrier from Drinax? Like super-detailed pictures of each room, options for modification, exterior action shots and some random secrets and mission generators.

I'll second that!

Also, more information about other Drinaxian and Sindalian ships would be cool. Surely there are more derelicts and wrecks or even lost ships to discover, repair and put into service.

The harrier is such a cool design, I'd love to see what some of their other ships would be like.

[note: I've been running the campaign on and off for a couple years now... I've made a few of my own Old Drinax and Sindali designs. Well, the stats at least. It's the artwork that I'm no good at. :) ]

You know, this is something I'd quite like to write....

Hmmm, ships sounds like something I might have a hand in as well...

I'd encourage the idea. It'd be a chance to envisage what the inside of individual Scout/Couriers, Free Traders, patrol ships, Type R subbies and so on look like. This idea could be fleshed out into a series, even something in parallel to the High Guard ship series, the Drinax series or anything new coming down the line.

While I would love to see great detailed pictures, I would try to preserve the idea that not every ship of a class is 100% the same. Not every scout ship has the exact same layout or even same chairs in the lounge. I have always liked the idea of each Scout or Merchant placing their "stamp" on their ship the way people today change the way their car or RV looks once they drive them off the lot.

But to be clear, I would buy such a product if it were to be done. :mrgreen:

We already have the front cover done - I'll see if I can get a preview sorted when we get back from the break!

I'm writing the Traveller Companion right now.

Well, not RIGHT NOW, because I'm typing this. But you know what I mean...

Do we have an estimated release date yet? I'm not seeing it on the Product Schedule page.

No release date yet - I want to move it a little further on before we start making predictions (adding more Awesome!).

At the time of writing I'm concentrating mainly on the Characters and Combat sections, though there is a certain amount of 'this causes that' requiring an addition elsewhere. Odd bits in the Characters section require an addition to Psionics, for example.

I'm not sure when the manuscript will be delivered. This is a big job and not something I can just sit down and write all in one go. It does, however, contain various awesome things. Some of them may be unexpected - *I* didn't expect to be writing them, anyway!

I'm not sure how much I should say about the contents at present, other than the obvious - there will be expanded and alternative rules for all manner of things from character generation to killing characters with flamethrowers. Also ships, star systems, psionics and whatnot.

I won't be doing any more on it today though. I have to go get a wisdom tooth extracted. Yay.
