An Immediate Ban on the OTU - Effective 8.11.08

Postby Mithras » Sun Aug 10, 2008 7:19 pm

[humor] After seeing so many threads here and elsewhere turn into bloodbaths about versions and canon and canonicity, I believe everyone will best be served by an IMMEDIATE BAN on all OTU stuff, discussion, products, new games, scenarios, supplements, websites - the lot.

Everyone must use their own settings, their own starships, their own histories, their own political bodies, fill in any gaps themselves. There is no OTU. There is now only YTU (and of course MTU! :) )
Now every single thread can be prefaced with "IMTU..." and end with "YMMV" - in fact, thats also a new forum rule, internet wide for Traveller discussion.[/humour]

Happiness and mutual co-operation will no-doubt ensue!

Now I agree, this does not preclude punch-ups related to rules and mechanics - but for me, that's what RPG forums are really for.... :)

At least with a shared universe (like the OTU) there'd be something to discuss. Otherwise, people won't know eachothers' settings and won't have much to talk about beyond "that looks good" or "that looks bad".

Yeah, Traveller probably would have died long ago if not for the canon wars keeping the flames burning :twisted:

Somewhat strange situation, with "happiness and mutual co-operation"
inside the ring, and canon debates and flame wars all around it ... :shock:

There is a rumour that Wizards of the Coast will soon publish a supple-
ment for the OTU, titled "Canon - Conundrums and Contradictions".

The rumour has it that those who have been playing the OTU setting for
at least five years and who have taken part in at least five flame wars
will get it free. :twisted:

Now people in the universe will finally know that the Solomani Confederation did NOT lose the Solomani War of Independence (also called the Solomani Rim War)!!! And that Terra is under Solomani control!!! People will finally find out the lies that the so called Third Imperium tell.
