Mongoose Releases Traveller SRD under OGL

While WOTC may wish the OGL would just wither and die, that does not look very likely. In fact, Mongoose has just released the Traveller SRD under the OGL. The SRD looks fairly complete. The major missing items are careers (one sample career is included) and the classic Traveller aliens. As careers are easy to write up and cloning the classic aliens is easy (as they were clones of standard pulp SF aliens), I expect someone will have a retro-clone of Classic Traveller out in the relatively near future.

Haven’t downloaded the development pack, but the page you link to states the SRD is released under the Open Content License, not the Open Gaming License. That’s a considerably freer license than the OGL.

Downloaded the SRD. Turns out that the OCL reference on the website is an error, since the SRD includes the OGL, not the OCL. I’ll try to notify Mongoose myself, to prevent any confusion.

I didn’t even notice what the web site said, I’m glad you did and pointed it out to Mongoose.
