Good Evening, All:

First, a very special Thank You to John for establishing a Stellar Reaches fanzine forum here on SFRPG! We finally have a home forum! Yay!

I'll definitely keep an eye on this spot for those seeking to discuss the fanzine. Now that the SRD is out, I can move forward with publishing the next issue, as there are a number of MGT articles as well. :)

Looking Forward To It,
Flynn

Asking a potentially silly question ...: What is Stellar Reaches, and could you perhaps provide a link ? :)

A fanzine with interesting MGT articles would be most welcome to me. :D

If Flynn posts a link with the basic info, I'll sticky it on the top of this board :).

I just visited the Stellar Reaches website and then registered. Such a lot of interesting material, and nowhere a PayPal
button to hit in order to be allowed to read it. First the Traveller SRD, and now this discovery - it really must be Christ-
mas today. :D

Can you provide a brief writeup/introduction to what Stellar Reaches is, what it covers, how to contribute etc? Then I can put that in the sticky post along with the link. Thanks!

Flynn,

Just a suggestion but you may want to make that link a part of your signature as well. That way anywhere you post it shows up.

Just a thought.

Daniel

This is great stuff, indeed! Well done Flynn and John! :D

Following a fanzine is always frought with trepidation - you never know if the last issue will turn out to have been the last. Now there won't be any more long, dark silences waiting for the next issue ... or Special Supplement ;) ...

Flynn, when do you plan to put out the next issue of SR? I was thinking of including a "teaser" article for the SRSSSS™. The latter will be ready for layout this month, but it would be nice to herald it in the fanzine.

Stellar Reaches is, simply put, a free PDF-based fanzine dedicated to Traveller in its many forms and rules systems. During the 1980's and '90's, fans of Traveller supported their game through such fanzines such as 'High Passage', 'Far Traveller' and 'Security Leak', among others. However, in recent years, such fan-based support has been primarily relegated to websites. Stellar Reaches attempts to provide the same level of support that fanzines of the past generated for Traveller, in an electronic format. The fanzine is intended to provide fan-generated support, and indeed, depends on the kindness and generosity of contributors in art and in content in order to continue. The editor and organizer of this effort, being a fan of the Classic Traveller and MegaTraveller fanzines of old, has created a PDF fanzine similar in content to these old sources of fun and discovery.

Hope That Helps,
Flynn

The next issue of SR comes out this month, now that the SRD is available. I will likely shift the focus on rules systems from CT and T20 to those supported by the OGL, being MGT and T20. It will be easier to provide game mechanics that can be covered by the OGL, and thus reused by publishers and shared with the community in the spirit by which Stellar Reaches was created. Background material is still governed by the Fair Use policy, and so can include OTU stuff, so long as that is never declared as Open Content (because it is definitely Product Identity), and so long as I never charge money for it.

With Regards,
Flynn
