Annotated PDF that comes with the audiobook version is a delight
 
I can't really think of a better way to phrase it. Like having the "commentary track" on while reading through the book, it's very cool to see what Marc was thinking, references he felt were important to note, or how he tied in bits of his personal life into his writing.

In as much as our enjoyment of Traveller is about the setting and characters as much as it is about learning what Marc was thinking, I unreservedly recommend the audiobook package.

Is this an annotation of the book text? i.e. is it the book with extra footnotes that Just So Happens to be shipped along with the audio book? Or is it just a PDF of notes, without the associated book text?

Why hasn't the drivethru version been updated to the annotated version?

Spenser TR January 9th, 2019 05:41 PM

Not sure about DriveThru... I got mine from FFE. It came with 2 discs, with audio and e-versions of the book, as well as a thumb drive I asked for ( because CD-ROMs? ) with the same material.

The annotations were in a PDF of AotI, present in footnote format. I'm using my iPad to page through and soak it all in.

Yep. An annotated PDF of AotI. And various file formats of AotI without annotation. And other stuff, not in the original AotI book.

"deleted scenes" and extra footage, so to speak.

So, as a kickstarter backer I don't get this version unless I buy it again?

Hmm...

Wasn't the audio book both a stretch goal and swag for a certain pledge level? I don't recall at this point.

I backed it to maximum and this is what I got:
Agent of the Imperium Custom Bound First Edition Hardcover Printed Book plus Enhanced Ebook (including an inscription by Marc Miller). As your reward, you will receive the enhanced Ebook with additional material: starchart images, Traveller game-related appendices, and background material. You will receive a DropBox (or DriveThru) download link (in December) to the completed eBook in your choice of format: iBook, Kindle, PDF, or Nook. Then, we will send you the Custom Hardcover format printed book (about 6x9 inches) when it comes back from the printer in March.

Now it appears there is a new enhanced pdf that has annotations - and I must buy it again as an audiobook to get it, unless I am doing something wrong with the various ebook formats I do have access to.

You are not; the annotated PDF of AotI is v. 1.1. (It also corrects several minor errors in the original book, such as Margaret I's heir and brother being Paulo I, not Pedro as in the original book . . . )
