I took part in the "Traveller 5th edition" kickstarter last summer. Well, the book finally arrived today (just when I didn't need a distraction). It is a freaking huge tome. I mean, like 600 pages. It's a floggin' bullet proof brick. I also got my kickstarter goodies: a patent of nobility (Knight), a membership card in the Traveller's Aid Society, 2 25-credit coins, the CD ROM copy of the book, and a set of Traveller Dice.
I have my Traveller needs burned out of my system for a long while I imagine, and it seems like it would take a coon's age to actually learn and master the new system (it seems remarkable unshy about math). But, just from a first look, it does have the distinct positive of being printed in black ink on white paper, large and clear.
