After the collapse of the Regency and the formation of the League of Deneb, there is a lot of wiggle room for the Daryen, Aslan, and Swordies. The Zhodani Confederation won't be intervening... not cohesively anyway.

Oh, OK!

I was reading your initial comment as being ominous. Cool! Glad I misread it.

I thought it was pretty silly at the time all those people "me too"ing on the T20 playtest, but considering the fact that they ended up being the playtesters and I didn't, I at this point feel no shame or hesitation in shouting a proud ME TOO!

Playtest??

Hadn't thought about that.

It might be useful to release an early version of the sourcebook for comment and error-trapping, I suppose. But since there are no rules, a playtest as such seems pointless....?

Yes, it is pointless, but you're underestimating how curious we might be.

Yeah, Traveller fans are a curious bunch, all right.

Yeah, it's not like there'd be rule-systems for us to bend and break, but I don't see that letting a few knowledgable but disinterested outsiders peruse the manuscript in search of errors, problems, and other inconsistencies would be entirely pointless. You know the rabid Traveller fanbase will pick this apart as soon as it hits the shelves, so it seems only prudent to get some of that out of the way pre-publication so that there'd actually be time to pre-emptively fix/explain/clarify any real (or apparent) errors, oversights, or plain old 'confusing bits' we might uncover.

And even as a worst (most pointless) case you could just ignore whatever trivial nitpicking we come up with and feel confident and justified that you got it right on the first try, which must be worth something.

The idea of a pre-release non-playtest is sort of growing on me...
