Default FREE GDW Double Adventure 4 Marooned!

If you don't have it, the complete, original, GDW double adventure for CT called "Marooned/Marooned Alone" is avialable free for download.

It's on the Far Future site, contained in the errata, starting on page 7.

The pages are mixed up in Double Adventure 4.
Mixed up? Hm. Does that mean that M/MA have errors? I just printed them out from my CD-ROM last week, but haven't noticed anything wrong... yet.
EDIT: Just went through my PDF of the two modules. Couldn't find anything out of the ordinary.

They are messed up in the printed reprint edition (at least the copy I have).

A-HA! Thank you, Sir.
I was beginning to doubt my sanity.

It's not really a free download. It's errata for a book that is/was for sale.

It's both.

If you download the errata you get the entire book, for free.

Or, what's your definition of "free"?

And the errata is there for the people who bought the material that the errata covers. Or so I suppose.

Something is free if the owner expressly gives it to you without asking for money. Not if he leaves it somewhere where everybody can take it, but only some are legally entitled to do so.

Mind you, it's quite possible that Marc Miller meant to give it to everyone. I just couldn't spot any message to that effect.

Marc made it that way as kind of an "Easter egg". All sorts of people e-mail him warning him, and he politely thanks them for their assistance... and then doesn't change it.

I sent him the PDF of just the pages that were missing, and he opened it, and added to it, quite on purpose.

So enjoy!

And I can't guarantee that at some point, he'll change it, fix it, or remove it. But for now, download it knowing you are ok to do so.

Keep in mind, people, Marc Miller also, when people started complaining they couldn't find the GDW materials, and before he started reprinting, licensed every owner of a physical copy to make one duplicate of each item for giving to another fan; he's since dropped that, having made the PDFs available for low price.

MWM is very fan oriented.

Agreed that Mark is #1 in customer service and support of the traveller gaming community!

I believe this is also why classic traveller is still so popular after all these years and number of alternative versions of traveller have been published.
