No problem a chara, I like what you did with it. Was a bit cautious at first and was thinking of sticking to TNE but the more I look, the more I find to like about T20. Looking forward to more...

@flyteach

Mongoose are actually quite good. Conan is better than D&D. Slaine was perfect (and thats coming from an Irish Celt), and SST had a lot of guts and character, a really good game. RuneQuest is where they hit a bum note for me.

I'm hoping we'll see new material being produced set in the Classic era, not just yet another rehash of the Marches and the same old ship types for the n'th time. There was a whole lot of galaxy in that era still to adventure in and since the release states that it will be compatible with existing CT supplements (inc. 760 patrons (sic)) we do not need reprints or indeed another complete new era. Back to its roots I hope.

Hunter,

Sorry I wasn't as clear in my original post as I wanted. I didn't mean that T20 is dumped, but ALL the previous rulesets would be dumped (or at least not necessarily officially supported). That's what I liked about your stuff, even though the main thrust was D20, you still support CT (and MT pretty much).

OK, I'm still looking foward to the next 3 years. And don't forget it's the authors that deserve credit for the new material, but you also get a bunch for bringing it to the rest of us.

Please see my email to "travsub".

Keeping the flame!

Jim Ujcik

I know what you mean, I just wanted to be sure to squash any possible rumor that the T20 ruleset is going away anytime soon.

No doubt! We've worked with some great writers to get where we are. When I say 'we' that who I mean.

Not sure if you've checked out our Gateway material. Not exactly in the classic era, but very close (993). You won't find much difference in the tone or feel.

There's already hate and discontent over on the mongoose boards about the supposed plan to migrate their sci-fi stuff over to Traveller.

If, they, as opposed to Marc, do a revision of CT to their core, it may yet be promising. If they instead go T5, I'm likely to just use the OGL to write my own traveller variant, with my preferences in place, and go from there.

That's the beauty of the OGL... once it has been opened, it's not going to be readily closable... so we will have elements of traveller around as long as people share the SRD....

Good news

I'd also stay on top of this as people will tend to think that it may... mentioning the 3 years will certainly relieve ones worries

Working with Mongoose to keep 993/Gateway going would be a smart move. I wonder if Avenger would/could do the same for 1248 as it would be a shame to have it melt away or be taken over by new authors... which again begs the question, when will the new traveller be?

* I know you can't answer Hunter, just interested...

I do hope this is the case... then let MWM release the "superset" T5 which could be mined like using AHL, Strker, FFS, etc...

Hunter,
Yep I have all your products actually and like them, although my gaming buddies and I opted out of T20 and stuck with CT as the character gen was a bit painful compared to what we knew and loved.

However I was trying to drive at the idea if there's going to be a consolidation and a return to CT type mechanics and OTU settings then new sectors exist and new ship types exist that can be printed up rather than simply reprints of existing designs meant to fit slight rule changes. I don't know how many more versions of the Type S I can take (as long as its not as longwinded as the Hero stats!) and the Marches is old hat now, more rimward sectors and conflicts with the Aslan would top my favorite choices

Regardless I await with bated breath

Martin

I've written a few things for Mongoose and have a good working relationship with them. I don't know yet whether I'll be involved with Mongoose Traveller (MongTrav??) but I do have some suspicions about what might happen and how.

Whatever anyone might say on the subject you can't deny that Mongoose are extremely professional and big players in the industry. If anyone can make Traveller the mainstream SF rules-set they can.
