May 1st, Traveller Day: MAYDAY! MAYDAY!

Postby CyborgPrime » Thu Apr 25, 2019 9:46 pm

Hi!

Traveller RPG Headquarters on FB is planning some fun stuff for "Traveller Day". That's on May 1st (MAYDAY! MAYDAY!).

I'm excited to announce I have lined up some interviews with personalities from the Traveller publishing world, including our keynote speaker, Mr. Marc Miller creator of Traveller, plus other Indie publishers.

We are also giving out prizes from Mongoose and other sci-fi gaming publishers.

Some publishers will be sponsoring special Traveller Day sales, and more.

Come to the Event Page for more info.

Hope you can join us!

mayday mayday this is rulebook beowulf ... inconsistencies rising, typos increasing ...

On a more serious note, I wish you all the best with this, and look forward to seeing the product.

I won't be there because it's facebook but I might well buy it if the editing is good. I've recovered from my MegaTraveller mixed-up-tables PTSD.

lol - good news everyone!

if you hate FB, you can still participate!

The event page is *public* so you dont need to be a member or logon to read it.

We will be posting the interviews to our YouTube channel and Discord server.

Sales exist off-site through DriveThruRPG.

The discussion panel will be live on the Discord server.

You mentioned Prizes :-)

How?

Are there competitions or are they being given away randomly to people during the event?

FB still tracks non-logged in users. For example if a site (that isn't FB) has a "like button" then the script for that like button sends the IP address and certain other information back to FB when it's displayed (not pressed) - the image to draw that button comes directly from FB, after all. We have FB "null routed" in DNS so if I visit your FB page, it'll just say the site can't be reached/is down.

Alternately, block scripts from FB.

That's easier to setup for sure, and that's important for some users. It is less effective though.

Member #1000 to the group gets a prize, as does a random member from the group (except admins and staff).

In addition, there will be a Mayday prize winner as well.

We usually draw randomly from our FB group, but sometimes we do "door prizes" for "attending" events.

I forgot to mention: in addition to the Mayday prizes, TRPGHQ is giving out 2 prize bundles to celebrate crossing the 1000 member mark.

One bundle will go to member #1000, an identical bundle will go to a member randomly drawn from the members list (member #1000, and TRPGHQ staff are not qualified to win the random drawing).

Good luck!

Just updated the Event Schedule to include the broadcast times of our live discussion panel and recorded interviews.

Marc Miller sat with me for a 1.5-hour interview - pretty much the high point of my gaming life.

Yeah, I'm a nerd.

It may be worth mentioning that the kickstarter is now live and has already achieved its funding goal - and is currently over double funded.

Will there be transcripts of these interviews or youtube versions for those of us who will not use antisocial media?
