News and Announcements from Far Future Enterprises, March 2011

A Traveller MMORPG for iPhone and iPad, IngZ announced their iPhone MMORPG for Traveller and they plan to release it this summer. There’s more at http://www.traveller-ar.com, including the chance to participate in their beta. It’s for the iPhone, but they plan to expand to Android later this year.

Moving toward final files is Traveller5: the ultimate Traveller role-playing system. With your CDROM comes access to the Secret Forums. http://www.farfuture.net/cdroms.html

Matt Carson wrote the final installment of the New Era Trilogy: The Backwards Mask. It’s available on Kindle, Nook, and DriveThruRPG. This series is a strange situation: the never-published manuscript for the third book in the series was lost so Marc and Matt crafted the plot the book and Matt wrote it. Then, Marc discovered the lost manuscript. So this is a trilogy with TWO endings. The entire trilogy (quadrology?) is available at DriveThruRPG. http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=88914&affiliate_id=4209

FFE has had a CDROM filled with the issues of JTAS (Journal of the Travellers’ Aid Society) for some time, but there are those of you who want to get the individual issues as downloads, so FFE recently made all 24 issues available at DriveThruRPG. There’s an index of all of the 24 JTAS issues at http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=89614&affiliate_id=4209
