Default Is there an AotI supplement in the works somewhere?

Agent of the Imperium content is canon, and there's a lot of it. I'm on my third pass and I'm still learning and spotting a lot of new things. I'm wondering if anyone is working on a supplement to the book, a sort of break down about the new information presented as it applies to the canon Imperium.

I'm thinking as a sort of reference work, along the lines of Applecline's breakdown in "The Science Fiction in Traveller" but I think different formats could also work.

Is there a thread here about this very thing I can't seem to turn up in search? Is anyone in the middle of this opus? How would you like to see such a treatment broken down?

Nothing official to my knowledge. However, the greater Traveller community is somewhat famous or infamous for not keeping great communication. The X-boats are broken... again.

Shalom,

I like the book as an example of how to run a Traveller campaign other than the standard "murder hobos in space" model!

It really inspired me, so I am working on an idea using Green Ronin's A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones where players are the movers and shakers of a sector

Something like this could be set up here - a chapter by chapter revue of the background and technology.

He is sufficiently trained in handguns to take out easy targets, like kneecapping argumentative admirals...

So what does his wafer look like?
AND character profiles?

It would make more sense for something like a supplement to come out after the next book in the series.

More material, more background, more to work with.

On my next read-through I'll jot notes about things I'm keen on, an avidly watch this space for updates.

Oh, and wait for the next book with an eagerness (^_^

No. Not at all.

And smart gamers don't give exact dates... It's like tempting Murphy's Law...

Art cannot be rushed! LOL
