From the Editor

This issue of Freelance Traveller includes a special supplement, something that we’ve only done twice before in our ten years of publication. Greg Caires has put a lot of work into creating Traveller: 1700, an adaptation of Classic Traveller to the colonial period of North American history, three-quarters of a century before there was a United States, and almost three centuries before Traveller was first released. Greg has written a little bit about its development, and you’ll find a link on the magazine page to download the Traveller: 1700 PDF. We hope you’ll find it interesting; please do send us feedback.

In other news, no matter how much we want to, we are not going to crawl into a hole and pull it in after us until the pandemic is over (or until the various governments stop pretending they can do anything about it). After all, someone has to keep the flame lit, and this is one way we can stay a community in an era when “getting together” is being treated as uncivilized.
