You should have seen this - drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what has happened!Is the Great Rift out in print? Or is it in the black hole that international shipping and printing resides? It is not listed in either of the release schedules. I have it on order. Have the PDF. The physical says it is unfulfilled.
I really like the idea of xenoarchaeology. So much of it in classic sci-fi writing and movies and bits and pieces in Traveller lore. I would love more sourcebooks on xenoarchaeology sites, methods, and especially artifacts. How about a book on artifacts alone similar to the supply catalog?Psyched for Mysteries of the Ancients/Wrath of the Ancients. I'd already started trying to stitch Shadows, Twilight's Peak and Research Station Gamma together into something more coherent. I guess I can just wait now.
Then you can add in all the prvious colonations efforts that may have failed, and human just generally being stupid and blowing ourselves up, and finally things like natural disasters that forced mass evacuation.While I am looking forward to the expansion of the Ancients series it has long been something that bugs me - not every ancient alien ruin is the Ancients.
In the Spinward Marches there was a civilisation of alyenes thousands of years ago that left ruins all over the place, the shriekers may well have once been starfaring and left evidence of their culture. Then we have the aliens behind the Shadows 'temple'...
