Those of us who bought the playtest copy get a voucher, right? How does that work?

I got a link in email for a coupon redeemable at DTRPG. There was a mention that it could also be used for a POD when available.

I'm still waiting for my coupon, so it's not instant.

And is the voucher good for both the PDF & POD? I really prefer physical books. I've got the coupon link but until I know if it is good for only 1 or the other I'm just holding off. I've got the latest play test versions so that can hold me over until I find out how this actually works.

Is this just an update of the existing MGT rules - or have they made them obsolete?

The link I got gave me $20 off the PDF (so it was $9.99) and said that it will also be able to be used for the print edition when it is available, which I think is pretty awesome.

Really Short Version: It is a completely new version and it is not interchangeable with existing stuff. However, I think that for the most part it is "compatible" enough that it is not that hard to convert from MgT1 to MgT2.

Slightly longer version: Character Creation/Skills are a little different, but it is pretty straightforward to convert existing character to the new version. A few skills are different or consolidated, but not a big deal.

Combat (along with the weapon specs) have changed a bit, but it is not what I would call a "radical" change. Though it is enough that trying to "adapt" on the fly would probably be difficult.

Ship/Vehicle design is where the biggest changes are.

Also, the comprehensive rules are pretty much a 3 book set.
  1. The Core Rules (which has rules for all careers and the Human, Vargr, and Aslan races, a basic catalog of weapons and items, standard ship designs, trade, system creation, vehicles, and animals (but doesn't include ANY ship design info). This was released yesterday in PDF format and is due to be available in print in April. There is also a PDF GM Screen available now.
  2. High Guard which is where all the ship design and customization info is. This is due in PDF in March and print in May.
  3. Central Supply Catalog: Similar the the current one with all the cool toys and gadgets. This is due in PDF in April and print in June.

You can head over to their website and check out the beta playtest forums for more detailed info, but I think I got that all right. The release dates are straight from the Release Schedule that Mongoose has published on their site.

They also have on that list the High and Dry adventure (PDF: March, Print:May), Vehicle Handbook (May/July), Marooned on Marduk (June/July), Traveller Starter Box Set (July/August), and the Pirates of Drinax adventure (August/September). Then there is something they list as [[[Classified]]] due in September/November.

Obsolete.

Comparable to the CT 2E to MegaTraveller jump.

Makes me even more glad I'm happy with the rules version I started with in 1983 (and am still using).
