Well, if they keep the artists that Mongoose has on staff, this is going to be one nice looking product.

Plus, what was that swipe at only being in reprints T20 and GURPS and ComStar have all being keeping the flame alive whilst others have been somewhat idle.

But, I do see a pattern emerging with t4, big announcement and big names, my hope is that Marc is not going to repeat the mistakes of the past and put all items for extensive playtest, afterall, this is probably going to be the last word in Traveller, so let's get it right this time - for all time.

If the Mongoose "basic" Traveller is as basic as their RuneQuest rules, you'll basically (pardon me) have to get T5 to really play the game. :devil:

Extremely interesting news.

How is this announcment going to affect the Traveller Hero line that has been being worked on? I know some folks who were deeply involved in that...

But the artwork in the RuneQuest line is absolutely dire!

If MRQ is any indication:
  • The core line will be desperately in need of errata which will not be forthcoming
  • There will be continuity errors in the core
  • There will be some seriously boneheaded editorial decisions
  • There will be a typo per 3 pages or more.

Mongoose is great about getting stuff out. Their quality control, however, is on par with the DGP-GDW joint effort: MT.

And worst of all, I fear, it's likely to include the T4 task system

I like the fact that in the Press Release, they refer to a supplement called "760 Patrons". You think they'd get that right!

I was very disappointed with the RQ release. I hope they do better for Traveller.

Do you know? Can you tell us? Can the Cat come out and play? ;)

I don't know Mongoose's specific plans for release, just what the overall deal entails.

Most likely T5's task system.

Saw that too did you ;)

When I read it I was afraid they had got it right and we could look forward to :rolleyes: a book of faceless, soulless, randomly generated, page after page after page, of "UPP : X-terms Service" or whatever :smirk:
