From the Editor

Twice a year, our featured article is an after-action report from a TravellerCon, and this issue, we even get a double feature! Both TravellerCons—the ones in the UK that Timothy Collinson brings us, and the ones in the eastern US that Your Humble Editor dons his reporter’s hat for—are All Traveller All The Time, but they’re not the only places for Traveller. Other cons may have some Traveller activity as well, such as PostApocalyptiCon in Tennessee, ConNooga (also in Tennessee), Mysticon, … so if you’re at a con where there’s Traveller gaming, we’d love for you to write an after-action report about it. Other Traveller-related activities are worth writing about, too—seen or done Traveller cosplay? Tell us about it, with pictures! Brought a first-timer along? Get him/her to write about it (like Jane Polwin, in this issue)! Introduced Traveller to «YourConHere»? Tell us how it went!

Other Traveller activity is worth reporting on, too—did your weekly Traveller campaign group have a particularly fun/interesting session? Write it up! Is the campaign itself a worthwhile story? Send it in, in installments, so we can run it as a serial! Writing software or building a CCG or other game with a Traveller theme? Tell us about it! It’s all good, and it adds to the evidence that the Traveller community is a vibrant and active one. Which is good.
