Starflyer Citizen
Default Mindjammer Traveller

Downloaded my kickstarter copy today and just a brief flick through looks pretty awesome.

A real change from the Imperium and the pseudo 3I settings that have been around for a while. The setting has a mountain of detail to absorb, much of it lifted from the Fate version that I have but never got into. Some good ideas reminiscent of the Revelation Space type sci-fi it intends to replicate.

Design sequences for ships and worlds are a great help to match the setting, particularly if you only have MGT2 core rules.

Production quality is good as a PDF and I'm sure will be as good as in hard copy in a few weeks. Some new art and layout changes from the Fate version. I'm looking forward to reading through thoroughly and feel energized already with some new ideas flowing.

I'd recommend it to everyone if you want a fresh setting that Traveller has so far not really addressed effectively.

I cannot wait until it's available to purchase. Between that and Orbital 2100 I'll pretty much have the Traveller I've always wanted.

I know what you mean.
I got the Fate version a while ago so I could mine it for transhumanist ideas and for TL16+ tech.
This new Mongoose Traveller 2e powered version is even better because the work is done for me.

Likewise! I have a great deal of respect for the decades of work and play that has gone into the existing setting(s) and am glad they will remain in play for a long time, but I think this is the sort of facelift that Traveller has needed for a long time.

At the risk of making a completely heretical statement - I agree, Traveller has long needed a comprehensive re-boot. By which I do not mean MgT re-imaging existing canon for the 1105 setting - the CT 3I has been done, one the one hand by CT material and on the other by GT.
MgT now has a setting worth of the rules set, and the more I read of the adventures and supplements for Mindjammer the more I want to see the T5 galaxiad setting.

Woot! The Mindjammer Traveller setting book and pdf go on general sale today (Modiphius web store for book, DTRPG for pdf).

Bought it yesterday. Very, very, nice. The transhumanism is more sensible than the "I want to be a pretty, pretty butterfly" of Eclipse Phase.

I always liked the background of Eclipse Phase. Guess I'm not familiar enough to understand the butterfly reference.
