I'm A Perfectionist and I Don't Have the Rent to Pay 01 February 2022


This month, Roger and Mike review Mongoose's Traveller. (We had a lot of lag, which I've tried to fix.)

We mentioned

Cthulhu Awakens (Kickstarter from 15 February), The Laundry Files RPG, Mongoose Traveller, Flandry, Dumarest, Demon Princes, The Mote in God's Eye, Ribbon of Memes talking about Aliens, Traveller in general, The Traveller Companion Firefly, Traveller 2300/2300 AD, High and Dry, Deepnight Revelation, the book about containers, Space Above and Beyond, and Honor Harrington.

We have a tip jar (please tell us how you'd like to be acknowledged on the show).

    A most enjoyable episode this month. The classic Traveller LBB edition was my very first RPG purchase and your discussion was full of reminders of things I hadn't thought about in years. About time I broke out the books again, or maybe I should invest in Mongoose or Cepheus system?

    I've not done anything with Cepheus; I suppose we should have tried a side-by-side review, but Mongoose was on the Bundle of Holding and it seems to scratch my Travellerish itch.
