...only you don't know it yet.

Someone I follow on Twitter is Dale McCoy of Jon Brazer Enterprises, who possess a licence to produce official Traveller material, mostly in downloadable pdf format. Some of their clever little products are 'd66 Tables' which are simply lists of, for example, mercenary company names, starship quirks, damage to abandoned ships etc. The idea is that these are an easy way for the harried GM to quickly add colour to a setting, especially if the players decide to go in a direction he wasn't entirely expecting.

A twitter request went out tonight for suggestions for the next batch of d66 tables. I suggested 'starport bars', 'equipment retailers' and 'alien sports'. The suggestions were received positively.

Anyway, to cut to the chase, after a brief negotiation, Jon Brazer Enterprises will be publishing d66 Starport Bars, and one of the starport bar names will be 'Bar Bubbles', after the chain of bars of the same name set up by ladyofastolat's Lady Bubbles Chatterley in Butteler 3.

That sounds more useful than my contributions towards (unofficial) Traveller products - I'll look out for it.

I am now wondering what shape a d66 is ... ;-)

It was a cool suggestion...
It was a cool suggestion and I love a inside joke. The other d66 lists are full of them. Thanks again for the suggestion.

"Stong Tolkein influence" indeed...

Even this collector draws a line somewhere. Traveller zines maybe (and even then I tend to limit myself to the pro ones).

All collectors have to draw a line somewhere.
