The Great Rift Kickstarter is Live!
 
Good afternoon, Travellers!

We are very proud to announce that the Kickstarter for the Great Rift and Deep Space Exploration box set for the Traveller RPG is now live - come and join us!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...p-space-explor

This is a project that has been very close to our hearts as we have prepared to explore one of the most mysterious areas of the Official Traveller universe - the Great Rift. Penned by fan-favourite M J Dougherty, this box set details not only the sectors of the Great Rift but also provides a comprehensive guide to deep space exploration and the mysteries that can be found far from the shipping lanes. Want to now what is in the empty hexes of a sector map? Want to know what happens when a Free Trader gets too close to a black hole (we have some excellent art for that!)? This box set will have all the answers.

We are working on the Great Rift box set right now, and already have some preview materials to show you - new ships, maps and sample chapters - all of which can be downloaded from the link above. We will also be doing regular updates throughout the Kickstarter process, showing you exactly what new text and artwork is being created, and giving you all the chance to influence this exciting new box set.

Come visit the Far Future - it is a lot of fun!

Looking at the previews.....
 
Nothing says amateur hour quite like left justified printing. And would it kill you to actually indent paragraphs?

"Jaynes" & "Armstrong"- Seriously? That belongs in T2300, where it would actually make sense.

Pledge made.

Quick note about the Preview of the Deep Space Exploration Handbook:

In the document, in the section about Brown Dwarfs, the heading for the section and the term used in the text is "Quasi-Stellar Objects". I believe what you meant (and want to change it to) is "Sub-Stellar Objects". A Quasi Stellar Object (QSO) is another term for a Quasar (Quasi-Stellar Radio Source) that is in actuality an extremely distant active galactic nucleus (a "feeding" supermassive black hole) seen at intergalactic distances.

Sub-Stellar Object: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Substellar_object
Quasi-Stellar Object: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quasar

BTW, REALLY glad you are doing this project. I will be backing it shortly.

It's got some Scout rules. Interesting.

A few other things......
 
Grammar - how about learning how to use commas (especially the oxford comma).

Also - write in active voice - passive voice obscures the action (and it takes up more space).

Write gender neutral - it isn't the 1970's anymore.

Well, it seems to have reached its funding goal within the first several hours. Right now it is at 3 times its funding goal with 28 days left.

It reached it's basic goal already. Maybe your idea can become a stretch goal for it.

Hi
On your preview, Cauldron (0102) is listed on the map as D540523-4 ,and then later as D988222-4 and as being a wet world. An easy fix . By the way I'm in on the Kickstarter and am looking forward to it.

Is it compatible to to CT & T5 or just Mongoose. Our budget is real strained this year.

Darkhstarr July 9th, 2017 01:27 PM

Hmm. I think our Barony is in that area. We could be Patrons. (evil laugh)
