Where To Announce Third-Party Traveller OGL Products?

Good Morning, All:

As someone that has already stated publicly that they will be creating third-party products under the soon-to-be released Traveller OGL rules, I would like to announce some of the products I'll be releasing over the next few months. However, I do not know where to make such announcements in a manner that is visible to interested Traveller fans without stepping on the toes of the companies that host excellent Traveller boards. While I know non-Traveller boards that support multiple RPGs offer a publisher's announcement forum to localize such things within their own websites (such as ENWorld or RPG.net), I don't know which ones are frequented by Traveller fans.

Therefore, I'd like to ask if anyone had any suggestions of where I could post "press releases" or public announcements regarding up-and-coming third-party Traveller products, either here or elsewhere, while remaining in compliance with the posting rules of this and other forums.

With Regards,
Flynn

I know that 3rd party RuneQuest companies hang out on the RuneQuest boards. I don't believe they announce their products there.

Where do they announce their products, then? It may give me some insight into where I and other Third-Party Traveller Publishers might be able to do so.

Thanks In Advance,
Flynn

You could always ask Matt if he minds your books being announced here.

Hey Matt, do you mind 3rd party books being announced on the Mongoose Traveller forums?

Perhaps emailing him directly might get you a swifter response?

Email sent. I'll post a response when I get one.

EDIT: I happened to run across this thread in the RuneQuest forums. Link.

Third parties are welcome to mention their products here. I would also suggest more general RPG sites, such as RPG.net. . .

Once again, Mongoose demonstrates it's incredible COMMON SENSE.

How DOES this company stay in business?????? :wink:
