Yeah . . . and unlike Mongoose's take on Paranoia, I have heard their take on Traveller is not the best version. (Which is good, because I'm broke as heck right now and shouldn't have even picked up that Paranoia bundle.)

Well, fortunately it's not Traveller, only the core Traveller book is in that bundle, the rest is all 2300AD. Don't know how that compares, but a friend grabbed that bundle for me as I've really wanted to learn more about the setting.

Mongoose Traveller is a very different system from GURPS Traveller, but seems to me to be a re-balanced and slightly modernized reboot of Classic Traveller, e.g. with random character creation, 4-year career units, and so forth. Just apparently trying to avoid any skewing there might be in Classic, in terms of favouring military careers and giving short shrift to non-military ones.

If forced to choose I wouldn't hesitate to be a player in a Mongoose Traveller campaign rather than a Classic Traveller campaign. But while I find the lifepath concept interesting, I really prefer choice-based and point-based character creation.

It's better than CT as a set of core rules; it's not so great as an overall system (the supplements are far less good as a rule).

I still prefer MegaTraveller as a more flexible set of rules.

I was finally getting around to trying to subscribe to an email about the Bundle of Holding but I can't figure out how.

I tried Humble Bundle but Bundle of Holding doesn't appear to be there and I looked on Humble Bundle of Holding site and it doesn't look like I can create an account or log in until I buy something.

Scroll down to the bottom of the Bundle of Holding website and click Contact. It'll bring you to their contact page which has a spot to sign up for their mailing list.

I think the trouble is that this thread is titled incorrectly.

The product/page is The Bundle of Holding (http://www.bundleofholding.com/) -- there's no "Humble" in the name. I think the OP accidentally conflated this with the Humble Bundle (an unrelated "deal" page) because both had "Bundle" in the name.

I'm fixing the thread title.

The current Bundle of Holding "Indie Cornucopia +2" features two of the best RPGs I've ever played -- Nobilis (Third Edition) and The Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine -- as part of the full bundle. Plus several other excellent options.

This is definitely something to be thankful for, today. Go check it out.
