Interesting news indeed. My favourite games all under one producer, RQ and Traveller..........mmm? is it another evil empire forming.

Sincerely hope that the Traveller rules are better written than the MRQ ones, which frankly were pretty damn poor. The standard of the editing was dreadful and although the Gloranthan supplements have been much improved having to buy several thin volumes just to gather enough basic rules to actually play was pretty annoying and expensive to boot.

The bid to end the fractionating of Traveller is a good one, I just think we will have to make it a compulsory purchase and that all previous versions will have to be collected in :-).

Anyway all in all now I've got three new versions of Traveller to look forward too in the next 6 months or so! (Traveller Hero, T5 and MT...oh wait don't we already have an MT?)

Well I love the Conan, Slaine(d20) and Starship Troopers games by Mongoose, however the new RuneQuest seems a bit of a mess, especially combat so I'm a bit worried.
At the moment I'm using a mix of SST and T20 to put together a campaign and I like both games, I dont really see the need for change so I'm a bit concerned especially seeing how underwhelmed I was by MRQ.

(BTW RQ has an SRD like D20 so anyone who is interested in checking out the RuneQuest rules.)

I for one dont really mind the fragmentation as people can choose the system they like to play the game. However it would probably be more economically sound to have the one system.

I do hope you'll be able to elaborate soon... will you be working in conjunction with Mongoose perhaps, or simply be a licensee... ?

Will QLI material be released with Tri stats? (CT, T20 MGT)

My brain is still trying to process this.

I'll work with Mongoose any way I can. I've offered them any support we can give them as far as CotI goes. And yes we'll likely pick up a TTL license from Mongoose even though our own license still has a few years to go.

Let me just make clear, we are not abandoning or altering our support for T20 in any way.

As far as I have been told there will not be any dual stats done. Likely we will either release rule specific editions or rules free editions.

This should be interesting for COTI... I can't see the Traveller community moving to the Mongoose forums... not with the shiny new boards here

Pretty much what I said to them

I'm very curious what this could mean for Stellar Reaches and similar potential 3rd-party efforts. I definitely am looking forward to more news on this matter. These are very exciting times!

With Regards,
Flynn

Ditto what Flynn said. With an OGL and TLL involved with this effort, I'm going to have to rethink my small business plan.
