Is that like Mongoose? I'm interested.

Traveller/Cepheus Engine
Cepheus Engine was cobbled together from the Open Content parts of Traveller (and a fine job of cobbling it was).  The best thing about it- it is available for free.  So, five different people might have five different versions of Traveller, or they might not have it at all, but they ALL have access to Cepheus Engine.

You can still die in character generation, so the true inner beauty of Traveller is retained.

I love Traveller! In several games, willing to play in more as a few appear to be dying.

Depending on what the focus of the game would be (i.e. military, mercantile, exploration, etc.), I would also be interested.

I was thinking something along the general lines of Firefly.  Just a small ship and its crew getting by in a universe running off its rails.

I may be interested. I've had Traveller on the brain for a while, and the stuff for Cepheus Engine is really well-done, based on appearances. Would you be running the Third Imperium, or a different setting?

In that case I would very much be interested.

Re: Traveller/Cepheus Engine
It's definitely going to be my own setting, partly because making up settings is what I like to do, and partly because I like to mashup things I like from other settings, and partly because I like at least the idea of 3D starmaps incorporating real stars.

It's under construction.  Almost ready to kick this thing off officially.
