Default Avenger Does Foreven

Since the first products have gone to layout, it might be time to make an announcement.

Avenger Enterprises is about to launch its range of Open License products set in Foreven Sector. We are in the unusual position of being the only publisher (other than Mongoose) permitted to publish OTU materials, but the decision was made some time ago to cease doing so and to move into Foreven Sector.

The first product is the self-contained adventure Research Station Chamax, which is set shortly after the events of Chamax Plague and Horde. You don't need those to play Research Station Chamax, but any excuse to play the two best Traveller adventures again is a good thing.

The second product is Beyond the Marches, an adventure/sourcebook which includes an adventure set just outside Imperial space and provides light background information on Foreven Sector as Avenger Enterprises has imagined it. We have a 'setting bible' (of sorts) in place, and all Avenger Foreven products will be tied into this common vision, but are intended to stand alone as far as possible.

In completely unrelated news, I have an official Traveller novel coming out next month. You should maybe buy it.

Any teasers on the possibility that some of the Chamax sleeper-ships have actual Chamaxi sophonts hibernating in them?

Okay, I'll be nice...

We plan a trilogy of adventures:

Research Station Chamax
Chamax Reprise
Chamax Horde

It's possible that the actual people of Chamax might feature in one of them.

What rule set? Mongoose? T5?

I'm not sure I know what Open License actually means, but if it means "systemless", I usually pass on those*.

Would love to see CT supplements, or at least CT conversions provided as a pdf if the product is purchased.



*Why? Because I hate paying someone to do the Ref work for me in the form of an adventure or supplement and still have to put a lot of work into something in the way of CT stats and throws. If a new weapon appears, for example, I don't want to have to figure all the CT Armor/Range/DEX DMs. That's a major reason to buy published adventures and supplements, at least for me. Otherwise, I can adapt and create my own stuff without paying anybody. Not trying to sound like a snot--just giving you some potential customer feedback.

Only one Traveller Ruleset has an open license option: Mongoose.

Yes, that's about it.

We'll be using the Mongoose Open License; there are no other options at present.

I'm willing to be convinced that it's worth seeking a license to do T5 materials, but at present there doesn't seem to be the level of interest.
