Mongoose Traveller Book

Postby WhiteWolf » Fri May 02, 2008 1:24 pm

I am curious to know did Mongoose release Traveller as a big book or is it a series of small books like the Classical Traveller books and comes in a box?

Big being a relative term, the MGT is a standard RPG hardcover size but at 192 pages, it's not overly thick. It's definitely not LBB size.

Ah nuts! I was really hoping for the Little Black Books (LBBs). I really liked them from the Classic Traveller. It was always easier to carry a single book around and read it. Heck the LBBs were just a lot easier to read period due to the small size. Oh well. :)

The new book as the classic black cover though, so it keeps some of the history of Classic Traveller.

It reminds me alot of the classic Traveller BBB (Big black book), without the protective paper cover. In fact, once my MGT gets old and worn like my BBB, may be hard to tell the difference at first glance. :)
