I'll back it - Mindjammer is a really good setting for a TL16+ Traveller game.

The MgT rules should be easy to adapt to the setting.

I'd back it too. The novel was interesting and Sarah Newton is a good writer, but I'm just not that interested in FATE games. Traveller, on the other hand could use a few more third party settings and, as I say, Sarah Newton is a good writer.

I do find the concept of living bio-ships very interesting indeed !

I agree, I will pass if it is just FATE, but if it has a Traveller option I am in.

Hi everyone,

Thanks very much for replying to the Mindjammer survey - I've blogged about the findings today here (http://sarahnewtonwriter.com/2015/11...-and-counting/). We're going to be starting the Kickstarter next Tuesday 17th November, with Traveller conversion stretch goals. I hope maybe we'll see you there!

Cheers,

Sarah

Hi everyone,



Just to say our Mindjammer Kickstarter has now gone live - you can get to it here:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...leplaying-game

Not only will there be a Traveller conversion as a stretch goal, but the sourcebooks will be very mechanics light and worth a look for Trav folks looking for a transhuman setting.

I'd be delighted to field any questions anyone has here too, of course.

Cheers,

Sarah

Hey Sarah,

Best of luck with the Kickstarter! If you are planning a Traveller conversion, may be a good idea to drop me a line (msprange@mongoosepublishing.com)!
