Just to warn you all, we have had some staff illness this week - too early to tell yet whether it will have an effect on the release, but we are doubling our efforts!

When the Drinax pdf is released will there be a print copy pre-order immediately available for the usual "order the print copy and get the pdf for free" deal?

If there is, Mongoose will have my money... it's nearly payday. :-)

The release date now reads "August." Furthermore, they're in Britain and it's Friday. There's simply no way they're not at the pub by now. :wink:

They were waiting on some deck plans to be finished before it went up for sale and there was a delay due to illness at the office. This is the most recent update I've seen (from the Great Rift kickstarter)

"Volker: You will indeed - incidentally, it looks like those deck plans are going to need a bit more time, so probably early next week for release."

Hi everyone,

It is Monday afternoon, we have a full complement of staff, and they are all busy beavering away on the last of the deck plans for Drinax! I do believe we are looking at a Tuesday/Wednesday release for the ebook (very exciting for us, we cannot wait to see what you all think of it!), will keep you informed if that changes...

"August" now, on the release schedule. Disappointing.

The girls had a few last details they wanted to touch on, and they ran out the clock today - however, they have rededicated themselves to get everything done tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon!

Possibly the best campaign ever published…

Written by Traveller fan-favourite Gareth Hanrahan, the Pirates of Drinax is a massive sandbox campaign with a truly epic storyline that stretches across an entire sector – more than enough space to keep your players going for months… or years!

With nearly 600 pages of adventures and source material in three books, the Pirate of Drinax has everything you need to run a complete campaign for Traveller, where players have complete freedom to do as they wish – a true sandbox campaign.

You can grab your own copy now at: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/218 ... te_id=7242

You can also pre-order the printed edition (appearing later this year as a true heavyweight with three full colour hardback books and a massive double-sided poster map, all bound together within a slipcase) right now at: http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/rpgs/ ... rinax.html

If you do this and drop us a line (msprange@mongoosepublishing.com), we will send you the PDF edition for free so you can start your campaign preparations immediately.


The Pirates of Drinax
A truly massive Traveller sandbox, the Pirates of Drinax is packed with enough adventures and source material to keep even the most dedicated group going for years!

In the Pirates of Drinax, the Travellers play a band of adventurers entrusted by the King of Drinax with a letter of marque, permitting them to prey on ‘illegal’ trade within the borders of the vanished kingdom. The King hopes this piracy will give him the leverage he needs to restore Drinax to its former glory, and intends for the Travellers to win back all the planets lost over the last two centuries – but the King’s plans are just the starting point for this campaign.

Once the Travellers have their letter of marque and ship, it’s up to them what to do next. Will they stay loyal to their patron and help restore Drinax? Will they turn rogue and create their own kingdom? Will they be heroes or monsters, pirates or privateers? Will they make their fortune amid the pitiless stars, or will the cold depths of the Trojan Reach be their grave?

The Pirates if Drinax comes in an attractive slipcase, with three hardbacks and a poster:

* Book 1: The Pirates of Drinax Campaign
* Book 2: The Trojan Reach
* Book 3: Ships of the Reach
* A giant 24” x 40” double-sided poster map

The three hardback books that form The Pirates of Drinax contain a full campaign, the Trojan Reach sector, rules and source material introducing the ferocious but noble Aslan, and many new ships unique to the Reach, along with a giant poster map featuring the Trojan Reach sector, the Floating Palace of Drinax, and the Harrier-class commerce raider.

The Pirates of Drinax truly has everything you need to run an action-packed Traveller campaign.
