Default CT Reprints To Help Loren

As you may (or may not) know, Loren Wiseman, stalwart of the Traveller canon, hard worker at GDW and at Steve Jackson Games, free lancer, and all round nice guy, recently had a heart attack and faces another heart attack because of his medical bills (as well as the expenses of living as he recovers).

We invite you to help him out and we'll throw in our own perk in support of it. We have a supply of the QLI/FFE Classic Traveller reprint of Books 1-2-3, in one volume, digest-size. Send in $12 ($15 for outside the US) by paypal to (and just say Loren Wiseman) and we'll send this out to you. These will ship Media Mail in the USA; First Class Parcel International outside the US.

Marc is sensitive about truth-in-fundraising, so he says specifically, $10 per book will go to Loren Wiseman. Loren will use this perhaps for medical bills; perhaps for expenses, but we'll respect his choices; we're just trying to help. Marc will apply the excess from shipping on some orders to make up extra on others. If there is an overall shortfall on shipping, he will make it up himself.

But wait, there's more: we also have a limited number of copies signed by Marc. These cost $22 ($25 for outside the US), with $20 per book going to Loren. Order these just like the unsigned copies.

BITS would like to join in some of the efforts to raise funds for Loren and give something back in return...

Send a donation via Paypal to Marc Miller at, marking it ‘Loren Wiseman Fundraiser - Power Projection’, and then send a copy of the transaction confirmation to

If I receive confirmation of more than $100 in transactions, I will make the PDF of all the ships for Power Projection: Escort that were not included in Power Projection: Fleet available to download for free on 20th September 2010.

These are:

200T SDB
Broadsword Class
Chrysanthemum Class
Fer-de-Lance Class
Kinunir Class
Midu Agashaam Class

Chtierabl Class Tender
Plokl Class
Shivva Class
Vlezhdatl Class
Zhdoq Class
Zhodatl Class

These will be updated to match the Power Projection: Fleet SSDs and include Points and RCP values.

I will post updates on progress via the @BITS_Traveller Twitter feed.

I'd just like to say a very big thank you to Mr Marc Miller for sending me a signed copy of
the book, hoping that Loren will be on the mend soonest (and not be forced to sit through interminable bouts of Pinky and the Brain:.)
