Don had a bias which I do not agree with: like not recording the Assassination or events post 1116.

I got the feeling that he didn't want to deal with the fans who were fighting over alternate histories after that . . . by stopping at 1116, he avoided the hard feelings (and Hard Times?)

CT Only thread.

CT stops when MegaTraveller starts so an 1116 cut off makes sense.

That said the point of departure for MegaTraveller and the GURPS ATU has to be much sooner than this.

In a similar way there are canon inconsistencies with the Mongoose ATU which actually diverges right from the start of 1105.

For CT the integrated timeline is a pretty good guide to major events.

I couldn't pull up the correct name - and while my books are now a few meters away, I'm admittedly lazy.

It's not a great module... but it does include the rules content from Sup 4 in a format matched to Starter Traveller and/or The Traveller Book.

Note that adding Snapshot gives you almost all the Bk4 weapons...
