Thumbs up Stoked!!!

Already pre-ordered mine! The bonus pack arrived last week with some really promising material. Still twiddling with the play test version while eagerly awaiting the CD-ROM.

I'm a bit stoked as well. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because MWM worked on it (not someone who doesn't understand Traveller).

I'm looking forward to see what T5 has to offer. I'm not pre-ordering (in case its crap), but I am optimistically looking forward to it.

If the early reviews are good, I'll buy it.

I've been given to understand that some people are blaming me for T5 not being ready by now...

Well, I've been called worse.

I don't blame you, Don. Besides, T20 was 2 YEARS past it's posted in-the-stores date. But it was a good product. I think if you've been reading the boards that some people are a bit ticked about how shabby Mongoose Traveller turned out for them, so I personally wouldn't mind if you took your time and put out a FANTASTIC product - if that's what it takes. We already read that MJD was a bit ticked off that Mr. Miller was trying to put soooo much detail into T5. But I like the detail. I saw a sample of what's coming in the CT CDRom. Just a little world card that detailed the world of Depot - full color front and a ton of detail on the back. That was a nice little tidbit.

Taking your time will be alright if it's a good product.

Absolutely! People will forget about the delay if T5 is an outstanding product.

That's a big "if", but not as big as the "if it's published at all" ...
