Default What is on the T5 Kickstarter CD-ROM...

Took some time this weekend to verify the material on the CD for Marc.

First, of course, the T5 core book PDF, just like the printed book.

Second, the three '81 LBB PDFs, the latest scans being included on the CT CDROM.

Third, the MegaTraveller Players' Manual, Referee's Manual and Imperial Encyclopedia, from the current MegaTraveller CDROM.

Fourth, the TNE Core Rulebook, from the TNE-1 CDROM.

Fifth, the T4 Core Rulebook from the T4 CDROM.

Finally, plenty of images and wallpapers.

Cool TNE for the win!

Man, that is some very cool news. While already have my beloved dead tree versions of CT, MT and T4, I don't have any TNE so this is excellent news.

Now I can finally find out how things changed from the MT/Rebellion days.

Plus I just dig that the Traveller5 CD includes all the Traveller1-4. Now you can have the entire run of Core Rules on one disk. Neato.

So, what about those images and wallpapers?

Laterness,
Craig.

So has the T5 kickstarter CD ROM replaced the T5 CD ROM (described as 'preliminary' in the contents page) on the FFE site...

... or is this a soon to be released disk?

[It would suck at this point in the game to buy the last T5 preliminary CD thinking that you were ordering the PDF version of the published book, so this should be made clear for the interested public.]

Actually, the T5 "pre" CD is no longer available. Marc has been refunding orders for that since just before the kickstarter, and my understanding is that you won't be able to buy the new CD until all the kickstarter orders are fulfilled.

I bought a "used" (preliminary edition) one at amazon well after the kickstarter ended. I love it and am having a great time with it.

They match the current shipping MT scans. If you want more specifics, PM me and I'll dig at it. I know there's been updates to those scans...

I was wondering is the PDF of T5 hyperlinked liked the PATHFINDER rpg PDF's, or is it just a pdf copy of the rules that is just searchable? I also can't wait till I get my greedy little hands on this stuff
