List of Traveller and 2300AD players

We currently have 31 Traveller Players on the list!
It's starting to look like a list already.

Since there is a thread for players of Freeform and another for players of Old-school D&D and retroclones and yet another for Eclipse Phase players I decided* it would be cool (and maybe useful) to have a listing of potential Traveller players and GMs.

Please, when posting interest in this thread, let us know whether the following is true:
  1. You'd play any edition of Traveller (If not, which editions are fine?)
  2. You need no help to create a character in the following editions (obviously you can be fine with editions you don't have the corebook for).
  3. You're fine with all versions of the setting.
  4. You're accepting PMs with invitations to play.
  5. You're willing to Referee if a group can be found.
  6. You'd accept PMs with invitations to check a "Referee wanted" thread.

That would be your Universal Forum Profile.
Of course, you can post again to mention any changes in your UFP.


My experience has been that many people that would run Traveller, think there would be nobody else interested. (Other old school games can also have difficulty finding players, and Traveller is old-school in a good way. So an ad can go a couple weeks without any interest and then have 10 apps in two days, according to the Old-School players thread).


*Prompted by discussions in a Traveller game's pre-game OOC.


Current List:
  1. AsenRG
    1. No. Don't bother offering me Traveller d20 (alas, that includes T20:2320). Everything else is negotiable.

    3. Yes.
    4. For RL reasons that's only a "maybe", now.

    I have the books for it (Far Trader rocks!) but no practical experience.
    ish)

    Classified
    UFP
  7. Lycar
    1: Yes. This is about the setting, the rules are merely a means to the end of bringing the setting alive.
    That said, I can not fathom how they thought a level based system like D20 would be a good idea. Or WoD D20:
    2: I could make do with some help tweaking things to better fit a party, but I have books for Mark Miller's Traveller, Megatraveller, 2 of the Gurps books and Mongoose' Traveller.
    3: Mostly. As long as Vargr are available, I'm happy. I don't absolutely *have* to have them but I like them. A lot.
    4: Eh sure. I was a game not too long ago but sadly, the GM disappeared.
    5: I theory I'd be willing. But experience tells me that I may not be capable to sustain a constant amount of dedication
    to the task, so it would be best if I stuck to being a player.
    6: Sure. I could always Co-GM some things. Run NPCs maybe. Help out with stuff. That should work.

  18. PMChapmanii
    1: I don't think I could play gurps, spent weeks making a future-tech character and not worth the time. Would not mind trying others, but have never played many.
    2: not a one, though I am mostly ok with Mongoose traveler e1, which I have made a character for. So much fun I decided to join the club.
    3: I have no idea, but haven't found an issue yet. I know I would not play anything above pg 13 though.
    4: Yes
    5: No
    6: I would look at it, but that doesn't mean I could Referee anything. My DM track record... not good.

    2. Would need help with any version other than Mongoose T.
    3. Don't know a huge amount about the setting, so I'm pretty flexible with regard to that.
    4. Most likely, yes. May depend on how many games I have going when I get the PM.
    5. No, not for Traveller. I'm not nearly familiar enough with the rules to be comfortable with that.

How flexible are we going with the "Traveller" definition, because I can think of a few other Traveller spin-offs worth noting: Worlds Apart uses the 1st edition Mongoose Traveller SRD as a basis for a fantasy/age of (mythic) sail game of exploration and mercantilism. Time was the artless version of the game was free, now I can only find the full version of it but, hey, it's on sale for under $10.

Not mentioning it because I desperately want to play in a game of it, no sir.

Stars Without Number might count as well, despite it's mixed mechanics. It's Traveller's illegitimate lovechild with B/X Dungeons & Dragons, so it's kind of neither fish nor fowl in terms of having a home in this thread or the Old-School D&D one - but it could be used to run Traveller in a more d20 friendly vein without, y'know, going full Traveller d20.

The only other direct Traveller tie-in I know of is Orbital; it's a near-future slower-than-light version of Traveller that runs of the MgT1 engine designed for adventures in the early stages of the colonization of our own solar system.

Anyway my UPF

1> Nyet. HERO is alien to me, and T5 requires more time than I care to put into it.
2> CT, MgT1 & GURPS (
I have the books for it (Far Trader rocks!) but no practical experience.
ish)
3>
Affirmative!
Aff!
4> Always interested, not always able.
5> No. Mostly.
6> I wouldn't refuse but I shouldn't be anyone's first choice.

Well, I would say "Worlds Apart" and "Orbital" should count, though it's a guess until I spend the money to purchase them.

SWN, however, is one I own. Personally, I find that it's both accurate and honest in positioning itself as a d20 OSR game. I don't see how it could be an "alternative to T20", frankly, it is pure d20 with added 2d6 non-combat skills.

Yes, you can use the sandbox GMing tools in SWN for Traveller, but then you can use them for any sandbox game, including one set in say Glorantha, or for Eclipse Phase, or whatever! I don't think many people would claim that SWN is part of the Runequest/Heroquest family, though.

I'm along for the ride. Hopefully it takes root and we start a good community.

1 MGT1, MGT2 or OT.
2 Anything not MGT or OT I would need help.
3 Yes
4 Yes
5 After a few games sure.
6 Yes

Let's get this party started!

I had a question, is T20 that bad? I used to play in one and it was pretty fun in my opinion. Why is it despised here?

1. Yes, but I didn't even know there were so many variations. I only have the rulebooks for T20 and MgT1 though
2. T20 and MgT1
3. Yup
4. Yes
5. I may not be the best one what with my poor work-life balance but I'd give it a shot, sure.
6. Sure thing

What makes you think T20 is despised? I just don't want to learn another d20 version, and I don't think d20 fits Traveller as a setting or genre. So, if I would learn a new Traveller edition for a specific game, I'd prefer to learn one that wouldn't make me wary before even opening the books.

That's not to say I think T20 is bad. The system it's based on just isn't a good match in my opinion. Other people are bound to disagree, especially on this site.

I have never tried d20 traveler and never looked to try it. I guess that is do the d20 craze that surrounded the d20 system release, there for a while it was like everything was going d20 and I wanted to keep traveler as a d6 game.
