Just to say that after last year's Kickstarter project Marc Miller is shipping his new version of the Traveller rules. thumbs up
I've just received mine and it looks quite good.

If all else fails it's thick enough to club troublesome players to death with. Grin

I'll put up a review once I've got through some of it's 657 pages.

657 pages? Wow. That's pretty hefty. Will be interesting to hear more about it.

After 11 pages of D6 dice rolling (I never knew there were so many combinations!) it's definitely completist.

Initial reaction it that it will be very comprehensive.
Totally intimidating to a novice Traveller let alone a novice gamer. I've only just got to Character stats after 60 odd pages.

Would like to have a look at it as there is nothing wrong with completest systems

Sorry I haven't had time to do a review, I haven't read enough of it yet.
Looks like it's on general release this week as Leisure Games are listing it this week as a new arrival for £49.99.

Enjoy.
