[generic] What are you backing?

Is anyone else going to Jump towards the Deepnight Revelation? I don't want to be all alone in the night.
I have been a big Traveller fan in the past, but I'm not buying into any of the big campaigns unless I have a concrete plan to run them. Too many games just lying around waiting for their time to come already, and the Mongoose material is a big investment of money if I'm not going to use it.

I've started running Pirates of Drinax, so I've bought that. That's as far as I'm going right now.

With so many other tempting SF RPGs that I run, will I ever get Traveller back to the table? Rift sits on my shelf barely opened, but this campaign looks to be more up my alley.
I have The Pirates of Drinax for my Mongoose Traveller 2nd Edition, and like you said, too many Science Fiction RPGs already, so cannot back this new Traveller Campaign, but will happily play in one, especially yours, after Forbidden Lands is finished, I hope. :)
 
The New Era? No.. we don't talk about that one either..
Actually we do, all versions had high points.
The Gateway sector for T20 was wonderful.
I really liked Milieu 0, the concept if not the product. Actually, I can't remember if the product was ok or sucked like some of the other T4 books. Perhaps it's my rose-tinted spectacles, but T4 was a golden age of actually playing Traveller for me.

Milieu 0 is a cool setting. I have it well read and enjoyed. Never played tho!

Milieu 0 was ace. Let down by Imperium Games awful proofing and editing. You want the hardcover version if you get it. The ideas were superb; the team writing it were heavily influenced by the expansion of the British Empire (which didn't land brilliantly in the US because they showed the dirty and exploitative sides of that).

On January 2nd 2020, TDM will be launching the Kickstarter campaign for Casting the Runes, their new Gumshoe-powered game of occult investigation in the world of M R James.

They've prepared a little preview of the book itself, and you can download a copy from: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/p...8195/Casting-the-Runes-Preview.

Keep an eye on facebook and other sites for more news on the Kickstarter launch, so that we truly do cast favourable runes!

I like the look of it, and will probably back it, but I feel there's something amiss about adapting literary themes with maybe two 'heroes' to gameplay with a troupe of disparate characters. Let's face, virtually all classic Edwardian weird stories feature a lone protagonist, or a protagonist and sidekick. That's the beauty of the stories - they're self-contained.

No surprise that I've backed this; Loz and Design Mechanism, MR James, Gumshoe - lots of things that I already collect... :)
