I've not said much about the sourcebook for a while, and smiled wryly at some of the specualtion. Bottom line is, we'll do it when we can. We have to get the T20 product line established and viable before we can support anything outside the main line. That means at least 6 books, to my simple reckoning.

Gateway, Starfall and the Players' book are 3, and all well underway. But it is going to take a little time.

All I can say is, we are goingf to do it, but we can't do it until we can afford to...

Fair enough.

Do you have the rights to all the old GDW stuff, so that it can be built upon?

Cheers

What sort of things do people want in the sourcebook.

I suggest RC details, UWPs, ships subsector maps for 10 year periods from 1200 to 1248, adventures, the overall timeline, similar details as for the RC but for other major players - Vland, Regency, Black curtain, other PEs.

Plus any specific TNE character classes, equipment - anti viral weapons etc. A few NPCs, and TNE specific rules additions.

Hows That

Cheers
Richard

The real story behind the Empress Wave! I'll be exploring this IMTU, but would really like to know the OTU explanation/ramifications, etc...

The Wave will be dealt with in T20 TNE materials.

The Wave causes some effects in human space, but will not smash everything flat, nor rip the setting apart.

It does, however, trigger one of the greatest human endeavors of all time, made all the more incredible by the fact that humaniti is still clawing its way out of the wreckage. Because this is something that isn't necessary for survival.

No we have a license and approval from Marc to do the advancement of the TNE timeline.

Thumbs up

Which is all good news for those of us "frozen in time". We thank the the almighty Ancients hunter & MJD (and spare another sacrificial NPC!)..

heretically yours,

What, two books, five Traveller's Aides and a precarious economic position aren't spur enough?
