Kickstarter update 44 should explain the delay.

Now we know, and if I'd known I would have known sooner I would have begged to forgo the extra "stuff" to get the bloody book/pdf.

As it is...it's still damn tempting.

Personally I'd rather have the book and CD ROM and give up the other stuff. I have a storyline and gaming group ready to go. All I need is the game to run it. I came up with a campaign idea and then searched for a system to run it in. Traveller quickly became a favorite of my searches and it seemed the latest and greatest would work for it.

And just so this thread's balanced: I want the swag as much as the book.

Especially the dice; I'm old enough to have seen somene with the original Traveller dice, but not old enough to have bought a set.

Since I have all the other Trav rulesets, I'm not dying for the lack of the T5 one. Especially as I have, somewhere, a copy of the draft from a few years ago.

So go make yourself a cuppa, relax, be patient, and brood over what other Trav things you'd like to see.

(Personally, I would like a cap emblazoned with an Imperial sunburst. Red, preferably, since the Scouts are my favourite service. But you could release them in multiple colours. ;-)

David is in the same boat as me. I never had the old dice. It's totally worth the wait.

I am fine to wait for the swag... the TAS card especially! All of this just helps bring the environment alive

I do wish that Marc had made the PDF available to backers earlier though. Gold copy went to printers a while ago and we could be reading and playing already while waiting for the physical loot to be shipped.

A 15mb file is tiny in this day/age (would take less than a minute on my line).

I'm fine with the wait, I just wanted to know what was going on, and now we do.

Oh so true. Also, love the 'sent from my rotary phone' and Ronny was wrong, socialism worked just great in Wisconisn, so that would be three, not two.

PS: Love the fjords. Well done.
