From the Editor

OK, I have to admit it; I’m easily distracLOOK, A SQUIRREL! Where was I, right, easily distracted. This time, though, it was due to looking through the archives and seeing just how much Freelance Traveller has published over the years—we’re coming up on twenty years just since the redesign to the present look, which means there’s probably 25 years of material posted.

There are, however, some weak sections: I’d like to see more material in Kurishdam, Less Dangerous Game, and In A Store Near You—these are the sections that are most likely to be usable in any campaign, and I’m a big fan of making the magazine/site usable to as many people as possible. That also means that you don’t have to stick strictly to 2D6 Traveller; TNE, T20, GURPS Traveller, and HERO Traveller are also fair game (if only for the Third Imperium setting). If you’re a fan of one of those, and feeling a bit left out, I apologise—but I can’t print what isn’t sent. Why not try your hand at writing?
