Just an old Traveller greybeard. I also run Original Dungeon & Dragons (Little Brown Books), Call of Cthulhu, and Star Trek (FASA) games and also play Battletech, Star Fleet Battles, many Board War Games (where I cut my teeth gaming) and many other RPG's.

Just a heads up.

I am starting an online Classic Traveller game in the next couple weeks. We will be playing online, live – using the GRiP interface along with a voice chat.

If you are interested in playing then email me or head over to the Grip Forum and get all the info.

All info is in the “Gateway Campaign CT” section.

Or you can read the front page of our yahoo group to get details.


Counters Rendering Machines

I was wondering after making some replacement counters for my copy of Panzer Blitz, have you considered making the rendering machines able to also output 1/2″ counters?

Then one could make new/additional counters for games like Snapshot, Mayday, Astroid, Azhanti High Lightning, and Belter.

I tried making them using the 1″ and 2″ option then reducing them accordingly but the graphics come out too small to be usefully recognizable.
