Do you post this because you think Mongoose is going to stab Indies in the back?

McCoy seems to be doing fine with his product line, Reign of Discordia is now being released for Traveller via the Flaming Cobra imprint line, so why the concern?

Please elaborate.

Um, I wasn't aware of any signs that Mongoose was doing anything of the sort ... unless you have inside information that its being bought by Hasbeen ... er ... Hasbro :shock: :wink:

I am going to have to agree with the other grumpy old gamers here, what is your central thesis?

Traditionally the Traveller fan base is large fractious and loud.

You want to start a fight? Just ask if Traveller is the rules or the setting.

Oh, there are plenty of Traveller - related topics behind which lurks a fight. The Ancients. Vargr with horns. Aslan finger counts. Blue Darrians. The airlocks on Type-S scouts. Most of Mongoose Mercenary. :)

Yes, it's a category killer.

And, oh yes, its Vargr with ANTLERS, not horns. N00b ! :evil:

Very different. And with significant consequences obvious to all but the meanest intellects; In fact, if one foolishly presuppposes the development of horn in lupis derived sentients, as described in *BLAM.* Thud.
