Default Wiki Discussion: Renaming New Traveller?

https://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Forum:...w_Traveller%3F

The Mongoose Traveller 2nd edition rules are and were never referred to in those terms by Mongoose publishing. The term "New Traveller" was adopted when Mongoose first started publishing the new edition and was adopted by the Wiki. But Mongoose no longer refers to this edition as "New Traveller". So the term now becomes confusing.

So what do we call the currently being published Mongoose Traveller rules. And distinguish it from all the other editions.

My preference would be "Mongoose 2nd", which flows along with "Traveller 5th". Are there other / better / preferred suggestions?

I have always called it Mongoose 2nd Ed., and have always thought that New Traveller is both ambiguous and confusing. What happens in the future when it is no longer the "New" Edition?

MgT2e - I don't think I have ever seen it referred to as New Traveller.

I have not seen that delineation either. I personally like splitting hairs. It is more precision, less ambiguity. My preference: If you reorganize then split out as MgT1e and MgT2e (abbreviated) or as Mongoose(1ed) Mongoose(2ed). This allows the far less grognardy to understand there is a tie between the two and clarity in differences. BTW damn you Mongoose Matt for taking away Project Phoenix between the 1e and 2e versions of Solomani Rim LOL oh well.

Like
Doctor Who (1963) Doctor Who: The Movie (1996) and Doctor Who (2005). Even though it is the same main character, it is 3 different productions and three different eras. The IP holder makes no distinction in its primary branding until it wants to distinctly refer to "classic Who" or "the movie" in an article. The majority of articles talking in-universe it's all the same Whoniverse (yesa that is the term)

Yeah, same here, never heard it referred to as New Traveller. Ive always used MgT 1e or 2e.

Almost every major gaming board references the curved swish as Mongoose Traveller 2nd ed. Any other name is thus grounds for confusion.
