Gypsy:

You don't need to post the commentary. I'll notify with a link in this forum when the next edition is posted, and you can (and should) post commentary on the playtest via email in either word or RTF formats.

So there is no need to hang out on the boards there, but by the same token, this isn't the place for feedback, as it definitely WON'T be read by those who need it.

Several strong personalities who are "never wrong, regardless of evidence" manifested VERY quickly, and showed themselves to be pervasive and persistent. Discussion in such an environment can quickly become impossible.

So yeah, I'll be contributing via eMail.

Seriously, I hope I wasn't one of those you perceived that way. But Aramis is right; e-mailing your comments to them is the best way to make sure you get heard above the din.

I'm just hoping they'll get around to answering a couple of questions soon, so I can definitively settle some arguments in my own group.

I never had anything to do with TML but unfortunately saw the same behavior in HIWG and on the SJG JTAS boards. I used to try and provide some counterpoint but I'm getting too old to worry about who "wins" and who "loses".

Hmmm. I don;t think its as bad as all that, BUT yes, I've recognised at least one deafening expert there, and endured one good old fashon teapot tempest .

Bound to happen though. new forum, and those who had the most to say and the worst way of saying it flock there, due to a whole new audience/set of suckers. and hot buttons.

The argument about the book cover art was particularly wretched....and familiar, had to make an int10+ save to avoid chiming in.

That was the one. Given that it arose from a "what are they releasing first" thread and was thus completely out of left field, it showed a couple people in pretty bad lights. The easily identifiable Mongoose staffers were not among the ugly in this case, thankfully. I *had* something I would have liked to contribute to the early stages of that thread, but four pages of tantrum later I knew it would never be seen.

Default Playtest questions or form

Oh my lord I have nothing nice to say about the forum over at Mongoose about the Traveller playtest. Well one nice thing, the Mongoose people are great.

So for those that have actually played the rules as written what kind of feedback have you sent in by e-mail? Does anyone have a playtest form kicking around?

I think my message over at Mongoose was buried in some argument about what should be called what.

Thank you.

Ara

No form. Just type them up in word or as an rtf document, and submit it via email as an attachment (windows friendly is recommended, if you're on mac or 'n*x)

The Email addy is on the first page of the playtest document.
