While that is all fine and dandy, let us see an adaptation after the pentapod biostuff is released as a well thought out concept matching the perfectly unique 2300AD setting. Hope that this release will be soon btw.

Again it seems that someone needs to have a word with Mongoose's art department. The cover for French Arm Adventures is up, and once again it's terrible. I don't even know what I'm looking at here:

If these are placeholder covers, can Mongoose just say so? Or are they really that bad at art direction?

<Shrug> This is really the first I've seen of it. I suspect that it is a placeholder until a cover is commissioned. In fact, I suspect the real cover will use this as the background.

I am pretty sure it is a placeholder as my LGS shows the same picture for French Arm Adventures and Tools for Frontier Living:

Actually, I don't mind French Arm adventures...but contribute to the 2300AD art thread to give better suggestions...

As long as there are stars in the sky and dreams about the universe, as long as there are chronicles of high adventure to recount, there will always be Traveller.

Well, how about all the old ones? Or at least most of them. Never could stand the sight of the "Invasion" cover :roll: . For those of you who might have missed the previous discussion on cover art, this is a read of rants (justified rants I think).

Finally- if you look close, the current core book cover art has this "not so good looking space, with wire mesh in it" vista as a background, behind the picture of people and landscape, so this might very well be a temporary placeholder.

Also, as my take on the classic quote; "Traveller delenda est". I think that the Traveller logo is given far too much space. Indeed, as a predictable repeat of the early version "traveller 2300" name, people seem to confuse the two very different settings already. I realize that nothing will be done about this, but I can always nag a little.

Now out for proofing...

French Arm Adventures is slower than I would like, but I expect it to be done soon. Work has already started on "Tools for Frontier Living"

Any news of when it's being released just halfway through the month and it's still down as a pre-order?

I applied for the job... for some reason negotiations fell apart when I insisted on physical Imperial credits - and 5,000 lbs of "Hiver Chow" each month. :shock:
