I have one question: Is the assumption everyone is making is that Mongoose is now the Marc Miller police?
Definitely not. I actually think that Mongoose are *the* most sensible and realistic of the current Traveller licence holders. But I think they're in a sticky position - if they don't follow the terms of their licence from Marc, they'll lose it. I wouldn't want to see that happen because I actually like MGT now (and they're a British company
I mean Mongoose keeps saying one source when referring to their own stuff and their OGL. But there is SJG for example.
I believe that the GT universe is non-canon (although I must admit, the GT sourcebooks are miles ahead of anything GDW ever produced).
Does this mean Mongoose thinks SJG will stop doing Traveller?
I don't know about that, but SJG are not exactly the most prolific Traveller producers at the moment.
At present, Mongoose and Avenger can publish books using the OTU - no-one else can. SJG can publish books for their (alternate) Traveller universe using the GUPRS system *if they want to* - but it doesn't look like there's much happening on the Traveller front at SKG at the momemnt (and GT is really just a little no aggravation pin money for MWM on the side, I think, hence no licence sunset arrangement). T20 is set in the OTU but QLI's licence runs out at some point. Martin successfully threatened to beat 12 shades of shit out of Matt at Mongoose and got a subby licence from them
*That is a JOKE, by the way!! A joke!*
