Is there any room for new players? I'm just now reading
about this thread. I haven't seen a GURPS Traveller game
on the board yet. There was one on enworld that I played
for a little bit, but the GM got slightly ridiculous & when
he took a week's break, I unofficially quit. :/

Hate to tell you this, Centisteed, but that "slightly ridiculous" GM on ENWorld and I are one and the same. [And, I'm happy to report that the re-tooled GURPS Traveller game that I'm running there is alive and well, and I just posted today in fact.] Plus, I've already turned at least one away from this game, so if there are to be players added now, there's at least one in line ahead of you, assuming that you'd even want to still play knowing with whom you're now dealing, and also assuming that I would allow you to play after you unceremoniously quit my game before.

Oh really? Well it wasn't entirely bad, but it's your
game & I wasn't really grooving to it towards the
start of June. It lost its momentum & I couldn't
bring myself to come back to it. The lack of replies
& the long times it took to see an update helped
to lose interest. When you went on vacation, I reached
a point where I no longer cared & put my eye out
for other games.

Plus it seemed you were railroading a bit. I came
up with a plan (breaking & entering some area),
somebody agreed to it, & you shot it down. So it's
like "why am I here?". That was the slightly
ridiculous part I was referring to. Also the comedic
comments didn't fit the realism that I would expect
in a Traveller game & broke suspension of disbelief.
I believe I mentioned this once or twice. Everything
I've heard about Traveller from other users points to
it breaking down once the comedy sets in. It definitely
felt that way.

I didn't want to get ugly, so I just left it at that. Anyway,
that's my constructive criticism of that game. Perhaps
you'll do better with it here. I really wish we had some
true Traveller grognards out there that would run a
pbp game. I've read a ton of science fiction & feel I
could jump into doing it, had I the time. Perhaps one
day (trying to learn Chinese right now :/).

Be that as it may, I wish you good fortune and happy hunting in your search for another game.

Now that I as GM have been thoroughly critiqued by a dissatisfied player from the fairly recent past, do any of the current players in this game have any comments or wish to withdraw? Personally, I prefer to go on with our game here and resist the urge to respond in kind with critiques of players, past or otherwise. Hopefully there will be no further rude hijacks of our OOC thread.

ONCE AGAIN, THIS GAME IS OFFICIALLY CLOSED!

What was between you and another player in another campaign on another forum isnīt of particular interest to me.

It is a bit early for real criticism, but as of yet, I have nothing to complain about.

Sorry for the continued delays in posting. I'm supposed to be in an apartment on 20 September. Then, then my life should stabilize a bit.

No problem, doulos05. I wish you much success in achieving stability in your life. :-) Either/both of our other players are invited to proceed with the action if they wish to do so.
