Default T20 OGL & SRD?

I believe there is an SRD/OGL for T20. Can anyone point me toward a link for it?

I may be getting OGL and SRD a bit mixed up - it is many years ago.

T20 was published under the OGL and therefore much of it is available under the terms of that licence - which bits may require a bit of searching.

I don't know if the OGL bits of T20 were collected into an SRD or if someone produced a third party SRD from the OGL content.

Aramis is probably the one most likely to know the ins and outs of this.

T20 never had an SRD.
SF20 might have had one, and it would largely overlap.

The design sequences are all closed content.

The SF20 may be the one I was thinking of.

How much of T20 is OGL and therefore free to re-use? Is that mentioned anywhere?

In the declaration of product identity, just like the license requires...
Closed content includes all the race description text, all the world, system, ship, and vehicle design systems, all the descripteve text of vehicles...

Thanks for the info.

And sorry I got the question wrong. I was, in fact, asking about the OGL. I changed the OP, but could not change the title.

I was asking this because both Mike and Will, on different forums, have suggested the T20 OGL might be able fill in the gaps on the MgT SDR. But I'm not really seeing how anymore.

Well you can combine the two but is more of a case that the MgT SRD covering the gaps in the open content of T20. Like Aramis mentioned the Design sequences are not open content but they are in MgT.

What gaps are you concerned about in the MgT SRD?

Also are you aware of the Cepheus Engine System?

That should cover nicely anybody making Traveller related content. Not anything Third Imperium of course. It cover the same range of material as Classic Traveller does plus some extras (like alternative FTL drives).

It has spawned a growing number of supplement from a number of authors and already exceeds what Mongoose's TAS offers.

I think a great place to start is with the d20 modern SRD .

There are a few refinements specific to T20, but modern setting d20 is the most interesting and compatible.

I have the T20 (and 2320AD) pdf which I bought from this wrbsite. There is no T20 SRD per-se.

The SciFi20 RPG from QuikLink Interactive, Inc. is T20 with all the Product Identity and Closed Content stripped out. It is available at DriveThruRpg.

Note: To be clear T20 and SciFi20 were built using the D&D SRD and NOT the Modern SRD. The License statement says this. Meaning:
No Occupations
No Wealth Bonus
No Talents
No Reputation
No Action Points
No Purchase DC

In a hindsight view, except for Wealth and Purchase DC, the Modern SRD would have been a better matching of Traveller to a d20 rule set. T20 was written before D20 Modern came out. Oh, well.
