Comstar Games, publisher of the Avenger Enterprises line of Traveller products has licenced the Hero games system to produce Traveller products.

Yay! Another version of Traveller to buy!

Mmm. Never a big fan of the hero system and I can't help but feel that Traveller is becoming the opposite of a generic game. Single background, multiple rule systems.

Traveller, the ultimate in multi-ruleset roleplaying!

BR, I don't see the problem with having multiple rulesets so long as: a) they fit together in some way b) they add enjoyment to previously published products c) they build a multifaceted universe with more dimensions of play.

I've seen official and unofficial versions of Traveller for almost every game system with a lifetime of more than 1 year. Fudge, Risus, BESM, D&D, D20, Hero, World of Darkness, Paranoia, Call of Ctuthulu (Basic Roleplaying), GURPS... Wait, there is one. I've never see a Rifts/Traveller variant.

I think the basic roleplay sytem (runequest, CoC, stormbringer) would do good as a traveller mechanic..they did it as SCiFI with ring world and worlds of wonder (that conbined fantasy/supers/scifi in a multiverse game)...

**geez, did I just date myself or what?**

Yes, Grymlocke, you have just established you are at least as old-school as I am... I remember those being available new...

CoC is still available. EQ might be soon; I put Greg Stafford and Richard Pini in contact last year. They *might* just work that one out for re-release in e-book.... if people ask them to.

So is the new Mongoose version of RuneQuest

And being OGL you can bet that there will be a sci-fi supplement produced before too long.
