Traveller5 dot 09 PDF download coupons have been sent out!
In the aftermath of our monumental Kickstarter for the Traveller5 Core Rules Kickstarter (which ended July 1, 2012 and shipped March 26, 2013), we have been working on locating and inserting errata, corrections, upgrades, and expansions to the Traveller 5th edition Core Rules to make it even better.
We are now on the cusp of releasing the first -fruits of that effort: Traveller5.09—not quite 5.1, but almost there. With it out, and in your hands, we’ll make any final tweaks over the following several weeks, and finalize the text.
We would like every one of you to look at this new book in PDF and tell us what you think.
To start, we have the updated pdf on DriveThruRPG and we’ve sent you a coupon that is good for a download. After things settle out, we’ll make announcements on availability as a CDROM, as a pdf, as an e-book, and in a physical hard-copy print book.
But let me continue: I am flattered that we have a good reputation with 99% of you, and we really want that reputation number to be at 100%, so bear with me.
Traveller5 began in earnest when we produced a draft Traveller5 CD-ROM in March 2008. Many of you bought that disk: your support helped us continue to work on the project, and your feedback helped us make the text better than it would have been otherwise.
We ran our Kickstarter for Traveller5 in June, 2012, and we shipped in March 2013. Many new people stepped forward to support us, but a lot of you were already there, and we couldn’t and didn’t ignore that support: Our 2008 backers automatically received the new 2013 CD-ROM; you didn’t have to buy it again, because that would have just been wrong. All of you 2008’s also have received the coupon for the 2015 Traveller5 dot 09. Now, we’re three years later, and we’ve been laboring on the T5 rules all this time. In a few short months, we’ll be producing a new CD-ROM, reprinting the new hard-cover, hard-copy edition, and (planned) putting out the Traveller5 Core Rules in Epub format for everyone with tablets and notebooks.
Our next update will have more details.
