Sci-fi Game Traveller?

I would like to again suggest a Traveller game.

When I suggested it a few months ago there was a big initial turn out, then RL happened and it fell through. I'm hoping that there is some interest in the game again and that this time we can get things going...

For those of you who are not familiar with the game, here is the link for the Traveller Main Rule Book
There are a number of supplement and advanced books. If there is interest I will post links to those as well.

I'm still game to play, but considering I started this post almost 4 years ago, and you are the first person to respond... I don't think that there is much point...

That said. If a few more people do want to play. We can get started.

You know what? I'm in. We started a traveller game years ago and it never really launched. I'd be up for retry.

Lost in time seems like a good theme, too.

Traveller.... what is it?!

For me traveller was a game that I played back in high school back in the 80s. It was about semi hard science fiction but not to be confused with Star Trek or BSG ( Battlestar Galactica ).  Is it something like firefly?.... somewhat, yes.

It's what you want it to be basically.

You want to be a starship Captain?... Poof, your a Cpt of the 200 ton far trader.

You want to be a Han solo type?... Poof, your a term 4 Mercenary looking for a ship or a galactic war to be in.

Traveller has aliens both good and bad, it has politics, economics and science for those that like things "Crunchy".

Traveller is a lot of things to many people.... for me it's a fun game and I hope that you might give it a try.
