Thanks for that info. I haven't had an opportunity to see that part of T5.

I see that too. The recent comment that they've had to "loosen up" on compatibility makes it plain that converting from one to the other is going to require work, which means that T5 will not be very useful. If you can't use it off the shelf, then why bother?

Default Oh Well.......

So instead of having expanded Classic Traveller rules - we are getting MORE different rules sets?

Well, at least you have lots of choices:

Classic Traveller reprints and new material

GURPS Traveller

Hero Traveller

Traveller T20

Mongoose Traveller

Traveller T5

I'm sure with a little work you can convert one to another.

Me - I'll just stick with GURPS Traveller - it's a good set of rules and I'll watch the other rule sets as they develop further.

There is however LOTS of Traveller material being released currently and I do like that part of this - lots to choose from to buy.

From what I've seen, Mongoose Traveller looks like Classic Traveller, Improved.

And, also from what I've seen, T5 looks like a customization interface to both, although it is a full game in its own right.

Thats the best description I've heard so far.

So, as a CT junkie who liked TNE, plays Fading Suns like Traveller and is starting to break out his copies of At Close Quarters and AHL with a eye towards migrating back to Traveller, MongooseTrav sounds like the way to go.

I am reading that right?
