September 6, 2010: A Traveller Soldier's Sonnet (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=September&y=2010&d=6)

It's time for the weekly e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com/) release, and what better way to promote a Classic release for the ultra-high-tech GURPS Traveller (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/traveller/) universe than to sharpen our quills?</p>

. . . We apologize in advance.</p>

http://www.sjgames.com/images/37/3705/sm.jpg (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-6604)Oh, Traveller! Your jumpspace heavens make
Me long for tales of soldier derring-do.
My mercenary soul I must awake!
How will I learn the hows and whats and whos?</p>

Yes, warfare of the future differs from
The ways of war from centuries long dead.
If military man I must become,
I have to hone my flesh -- and, too, my head!</p>

It's knowledge that I need! Campaigns and rules
And info making mercenaries bold.
Does there exist a Traveller book of tools
To forge combatants' steel to deadly cold?</p>

Soldier's life: tactics, gear, and war defined --
GURPS Traveller Classic: Star Mercs (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-6604), be mine!</p>. . . and Bonus Space Gamer Limerick

Was seeking a new old-school heaven.
"I'm in quite a fix,
For I've read 36.
Where can I click for 37 (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2337)?"</p>
