And I cannot agree with Rob enough here. Imperiallines is not meant as a route for errata or rule updates. It's definitely a path for examples. And there will be some non-OTU examples of using the T5 rules as we work through them.

glad to hear from you. hope to see you around more. if there is anything i can do to help feel free to email/text/call etc.

We could ask a certain Universe author the same thing... ;)

I don't give out dates. That's always been a personal rule. Sorry.

When Marc gives me the next update for the reviewers, I'll have the reviewers give me their thoughts and summarize.

I do know that once the reviewers approve, it will appear here on COTI.

But again, no dates.

It's a good rule here. Dates tend to be optimistic.

Expectation management: very sensible.

Which is why I explicitly didn't ask for a date, just a general feeling without commitment. Presumably, there is a sense of how much progress has been made, if any?

I know real progress has been made. The reviewers were much happier with the last pass, but they all want the next one tomorrow. :CoW:

Health and wellbeing should be a/the top priority. I wish you well, but saying things like "prayers be with you" is very out of character for me and it ultimately does nothing. But I am hoping there is an abundance of positivity moving forward.

That being said, whilst I am relatively new to Traveller (Anything less than 20 years working experience seems "new" sometimes!!"), I want to offer what ever skills and effort I can to help you. I'm not a gear head, or a math genius, and you have your trusted proofreaders and testers. But like many who are not saying it, the offer is there. Even if it is simple stuff like 'not shitting up the forums with fluffy-bubblegum-feel-good posts'!!! (You know what I mean!) :file_21:

Don, best wishes from me as well, in this rough patch. Health problems like that tend to dominate your life, and this community understands.

I haven't been on CoTI (or playing any RPGs since I last updated my blog! - arrgh! RL) but I really loved Imperial Lines and bought it when I saw it. Great idea. Already the examples are bringing out the idea that the T5 universe is teeming with alien life. Love the detail in referencing previous publications as well.

Looking forward to updates, but as others have said, please take care of your health first!
