I wouldn't call renaming skills a major rewrite. Referees make their own career templates and skills all the time without re-writing game mechanics.

I do like the newer Task Check system though. Less DMs to think about. And Difficulty is now the target number to roll, instead of 8+.

A major re-write would be comparing any Mongoose Traveller to Traveller 5's rules.

It's a reduction of the skill list - much like the CT-MT skill list changes. I do think it went way too far in the drafts (and haven't looked at the final final, but I doubt it changed from the last draft I was sent).

As I said, you cannot instantly tell that it's MGT2 vs MGT1 with a casual glance.

Combat is similar, but will be a relearn. Much like the difference between Striker/AHL to MT.

Ship design is much like the Bk2 to Bk 5 transition - instantly obvious as long as you know what you're looking at.

To all of you who participated in this thread and responded to my queries - thank you.

Due to issues with a moderator, I have come to determine that I do not prefer to remain a part of this fellowship. The rest of you have been, dare I say the word... STELLAR in your contributions and kindness. I wish you all the best of luck, and that you be in good health.

Hal
