Having seen the three preview documents that are over on the Mongoose board, I was also impressed by how much the criticism from the playtesters was taken to heart. The Timing/Effect thing was generally not liked and even though Mongoose people kept saying how cool it was, it seems to have been removed as a core rule. Lots of other examples like that seem to exist as well.

I look forward to the final document. While it may not be perfect, it is certainly something that can be built on and grown for NEW GAMERS to start playing Traveller.

I recently convinced my two sons and a couple of their friends to try Traveller and rather than go to CT, I am going to use Mongoose's material (set in the TNE 1248 setting). Since I have to teach them the system from scratch, I decided to go with the newest system and the one that will be supported going forward.
