This download is completely missing the "When Empires Fall" article from Challenge magazine - it includes a 4-page pdf of the TNE cover and three pages of overview of the TNE system - basically it is the old ad copy for the release.

I know I already love the Game, which is probably why i whish there could have been something more in the material presented. as a teaser item, it needs to tease better. The game itself is so much more than the what this booklet represents.

Overall, this was a decent summary of the materials available for TNE.

I liked the description of how TNE was different from CT, and i believe that this is important in trying to figure out what era the player and GM want to use for the Traveller game.

The problem with this one is that really none of the items available for the TNE universe are listed or described at all. There isnt even a listing of the books that make up the TNE core materials.

So, it's got some good points but not enough for me to rate it higher.

Another Very Nice and affordable Traveller supplement. You can't miss with this price.

Not a problem with the product itself, but with the RPGnow download. If you "purchase" this for free while you get the 4 page overview (which appears to be just a modified cover and the first 3 pages of the core rulebook of the full product) you don't actually get the 20 page "When Empires Fall" book.

The four (actualy 3) is fine in itself. It gives you an good overview of the setting, and if you are familiar with earlier version how it has changed. If you are interested in what the game mechanics are actually like though there is very little information.

If you can find When Empires Fall from another source (or they fix it here) this is actually a reprint of a two part article from Challenge Issue 64 and another latter one (may be issue 65 but not sure). This is a much more detailed background article but you will need to be familiar with the MegaTraveller setting to really follow this well as it explains in great detail the events immediately following that setting, which is in turn a set up for the New Era setting seventy years latter.
