From the Editor

This is our second ‘double issue’ this year. We hadn’t originally planned it this way, but sometimes Events happen, and throw serious kinks into our plans. This time, the Event went by the name of Sandy. We were about ready to go to press when the storm hit, and the net connection at our editorial offices—where we do all the important stuff—went down, except intermittently, when we were seeing very high data loss. That meant that there was no way in hell we could manage a successful upload. Since we couldn’t get an estimate of service restoration, we decided to combine the November and December issues, and not worry too much unless it took too long to restore service.

TravellerCon/USA this year… wasn’t. Sadly, between the date change and the state of the economy, the organizers couldn’t get enough pre-registrations, and had to cancel. We’re looking forward to the 2013 TravellerCon/USA, and hope you can join us there.

While the Traveller5 Kickstarter was an amazing success, the same can’t be said for the Terra/Sol Six Guns: Lasers Kickstarter. This was the one that prompted last issue’s call for the community to provide feedback not just to Terra/Sol, but to all of the publishers regarding what you want to see in Traveller’s future. We’ll reiterate that call here, and hope that the failure of the Kickstarter doesn’t discourage one of the best third-party Traveller publishers from continuing to build on their past work.
