Expect that to be at least 2 CD's at $35 each. Too much content for one.

I would go for a rewrite of Interstellar Wars T5 style. I have it in dead tree and electrons!

It would have been nice if there'd been some provision made for JTAS subscriptions. Mine recently expired, and I can find no way to extend it again until the magazine goes dark. I've been a subscriber for a long time, and I'd like to be on hand for the final issues, but that doesn't seem to be possible.

Has there been new content? I don't know - I wasn't a subscriber. When was the most recent JTAS material posted?

Aside from the JTAS issue I agree with Nathan that the ISW period would be a great line to advance in the T5 system. In fact I would love to see the whole G:TU setting go forward. I was never a fan of Rebellion+ settings and Rim of Fire is one of the best setting books I've ever seen.

I know that's asking a lot. I'm sure its enough work to get the SJGames material ready for some sort of publication by Mr. Miller et al, and I'll certainly be happy to see a cross referenced, searchable publication of JTAS.

So the end is nigh for G:Traveller.

Any news available for the public on what is happening, or will that be announced in January?

A CDrom is in the works. AFAIK, It is not yet decided if GURPS-lite will be on it. A JTAS cd is also planned. SJ and MWM are handling it. The discussion forums will, at minimum, be archived to html. Not certain where those will be archived.

Seems silly to kill them and destroy that community. Sure, SJG is footing the bill for that community, and it support a product they can no longer sell.

But that bill is noise to the support of all their other stuff.

I don't see the harm in keeping it.

Nor do I. But I've not read the contracts.
