Default Other Traveller Titles

Of the 2 additional titles coming to Traveller that I know of, TTA and Bab 5, TTA seems more 3I compatible. I just happened to be perusing some bab 5 ships the other day and I was flat stunned by the actaul sizes and tonnages of them.

Oops, TTA is the Terran Trade Authority, in case you haven't heard of it.

Any thoughts, or additional info or rumours?

I loved Babylon 5, and am excited to see a sourcebook mapping it to Traveller. Yes, their ships are huge. It makes me wonder if the B5 adaptation will be compatible with 3rd Imperium ships... and what would happen if you pit a Vorchan battle group against a Tigress battle group...

Default TTA for Traveller

Very interesting history for TTA....

At one point Morrigan Press (www.morriganrpg.com) had a TTA RPG on drivethrurpg.com. Looking today it is gone; both the products AND the homepage for the company.

Can still find the book at Amazon.com (see here).

I always liked the TTA background (I still have an ORIGINAL Spacecraft, 2000-2100 AD (Amazon link). I did not buy the TTA RPG because I was hesitant to invest in yet another RPG system (OMNI).

Things that make you go hmm.

Morrigan still has product on DTRPG. http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/index....ters=0_0_10096

TTA is pulled at the moment, but still listed as a category.

Mongoose is trying to poach the TTA license, if I understand their blogs correctly. For which, I'm mixed on... Morrigan produced a gorgeous, well edited, low errata product.

Mongoose produces great ideas, flawed execution, and has no editing skills of note at all. Glad I bought TTARPG when I did. Whish I'd bought the PDF's of the revised TTA books, too.

OK, here's hoping certain people don't edit this for certain reasons...

Here is more info on the MGT version of TTA currently under development, by one of the developers:

This is an appropriate link. It links a topic of interest directly (rather than to root level) and is providing information relevant to the ongoing discussion. Further, it isn't an attempt to recruit members for that other board.

Interesting; Morrigan got their license pulled, and BPI got it, and are making use of the OGL and/or TLL.

Thats because their license had been terminated and part of the agreement they had to quit selling all related TTA material.

Well you can look no farther. TTA is being completly redone for the Mongoose Traveller RPG.

JMT: will the other products be redone? (I've the old Hamlyn books, and the Morrigan RPG, but not the Morrigan non-RPG TTA books.)
