That counter ticket is a good reminder that every ticket and Amber Zone can easily be made into it's Bizarro counterpart.

What I did, was save up and go for the 443 deal and bought the CT, JTAS, Apocrypha 1 (FASA stuff) and Apocrypha 2 (Judges Guild plus a lot of extras such as articles from various other magazines like the Dragon); for the dollar spent, this will give you an enourmous amount of material, by far the best deal in gaming.

Well, I'm not sure the budget allowed since I just lost my job, but the set (CT, A1, A2, JTAS) has been ordered. There is a lost part of me that finds comfort in the old CT stuff. There is a modern part of me that wants to use Traveller as an excuse to do more programming.

Now to plot the destruction of the PCs in Efate:Worse than Death!

Sorry to hear about the employment situation; though the disks will definitely give you a huge amount of reading material. I have seen as well that there seems to be even more 3rd party Traveller material that isn't on the disks, CT had more stuff than one could imagine, I started buying it in '81 and didn't see half this stuff.

Okay, as I have no artistic talent what-so-ever I've started to use Joomla as the Content Management System for the website portion of the game. So far the Library Data, Characters, House Rules, News, and Game Forum links work.

Whoo-hoo! Once I have this a bit better I'll try and write up how to use Joomla and phpBB for anyone that wants to do so for their own games.

BTW, the game does have space open. We're posting slowly, so there's still some time to get things going.

What ruleset are you using? In CT you'd want Book 4 Mercenary, which explains quite a bit about the whole mercenary system, hiring, repatriation bonds, some sample mercenary tickets (jobs), etc. GT has GT: Star Mercs which fulfills the same function. I believe that MgT has a Mercenary book also, but have not seen it myself.

SpaceBadger, we'll be using CT book 4, "Mercenary", as well as parts of Striker. I also need to look through SnapShot to see if that adds anything for close combat. The team is forming up nicely and it looks to be an interesting troupe.
