There’s another one in the works as well: Sword of Cepheus.
(By the way, how exactly does your subscription system works? I don’t think I’ve been receiving e-mail notifications of comments to posts I subscribed to.)

Hm. Perhaps there’s a bug somewhere. Check your subscriptions. It should list “Comments on 2019-10-01 Fantasy Traveller”, for example. Once a day a cron job is supposed to compare these subscriptions to the list of recent changes and send mails as appropriate. Looking at my outgoing emails, it seems to be working.

Aldreth was done for Megatraveller.
And I misremembered Wanderer as an actual game and not simply the brilliantly done mock-up with some relevant threads...

A half-step away there is also the excellent science fiction game Stars Without Number by Kevin Crawford. It is an OSR/TSR-era D&D class-and-level game with Traveller’s 2d6 skill system attached. It works very, very well. (And the GM tools/setting creation chapters are also great.)

That blog post sounds sweet, Ynas!
Yeah, Simon, that fake fantasy Traveller The Wanderer drove me nuts back then. 🙂
And the link to Paladin in a Citadel led me to this Orcus picture that I like so much! My favorite.
I had forgotten that Stars without Number used 2d6 for skills, Blunder. Kevin is not afraid to mix and match!

FYI I’m not getting any emails for my comment subscriptions either.

Hm. I just checked my mails and cron seems to print no errors:
Date: Fri, 04 Oct 2019 07:08:36 +0200 Sending Comments on 2019-08-15 Deep Carbon Observatory Day 1 to bjorn... using email@example.com
Perhaps Gmail changed something about all that?

Hm, when I setup a test and remove all the safeguards, I do in fact get an error:
invalid SSL_version specified at ... IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 698.

Wohoo! Back in business. Thank you for the heads up.
