I have a theory on this one. I think Marc is just like most creative GM/tinkers out there. He's always working to make "the system" work better. It's almost a compulsion for people of this type. (I should know, I am a mild case of it, and I know several that are always changing the game, never satisfied with any result they achieve.)

T5 is a product of his Quest for the Holy Grail of Gaming, the next iteration in the creation process. Given that he holds the rights, he is in a position to share his work with the world. I'll probably buy it, just to support Traveller and thank him for giving us Traveller as OGC, but it will be a sentimental matter, not a purchase based on need.

Truth be told, though, I'm glad he feels compelled to share T5. Without that pressure, he wouldn't have sought out Mongoose, and then wouldn't have agreed to the OGL/TLL deal that will open Traveller to us all forever going forward. (Well, the system, but probably not the OTU.)

Looking Forward To More News,
Flynn

LOL!

Not a problem. I am a moderator on a different board, and I did that exact thing once. I felt so bad after doing it. Now, I have seen both you and LKW (on the SJG forums) make the exact same mistake, so I don't feel so bad anymore.

Mongoose pursued this license because they wanted it; Marc didn't 'seek out' Mongoose to share T5.

So, does anyone have the balls to post that over on the Mongoose board?

BUT, Mongoose has probably been fighting the Riki Tiki Tavi thing since Day 1, so it would be kind of like singing the Police song to a 40-year-old woman named Roxanne...Funny for you, but just plane boring to her.

I'm sure you're right about the "heard it" syndrome there Plankowner

I'm intrigued by the news and am anxious to see what the finished products will be like.

Traveller has become too fragmented in my opinion, and I hope this new version will bridge gaps more than just present a new fragment. I'm especially curious about the relationship between CT, MongTrav, and T5. How compatible will they be? Can I take stats from any one version and use them in the other? How similar will the rules be - will CT players quickly pick up the new changes, or will they be more drastic?

I'm very leery of Mongoose as a publisher. They've had very mixed results in my book. My two main concerns are editing/errata and the publication model. I didn't like the way RQ was released in tiny, incomplete fragments. I hope the main Traveller products will be more all-inclusive (like what MRQ is finally doing with the new Deluxe edition).

In the end, I hope this turns out to be a fantastic product and launches Traveller back to the top of everyone's gaming radar, bringing in new fans!

Don't know about RQ, but Conan is very well presented and Judge Dredd looks pretty authentic too.

I'm tentatively excited by this now. Having single handedly cleaned the QLI products off the shelves of my local game/comic shop, it would be good to see a Mongoose pushed Trav line with it's own shelf. I don't like seeing RP shelves with no Trav.

Out of interest, I pretty much cleaned up the Conan too, but Starship Troopers, B5, and Slaine are still there. A Strongti Dog game would also prob get shelf space too.

If, however, MongTrav is going to be the engine for other sf games, then the core rules will have to include stuff about AI, transhumanism, warp engines, time travel etc etc. Maybe Starship Troopers doesn't have all that stuff, but Johnny Alpha certainly does!
