    Secrets of the Ancients vs Secrets of the Ancients(?)

    I have a copy of a book called 'Secrets of the Ancients' published by Mongoose back in 2012 with "The Third Imperium" emblazoned across the top of the cover and a couple of Droyne and a city in the distance. I also see that there is a book currently on the Mongoose site that is also a book called 'Secrets of the Ancients' that is currently for sale with just "Traveller" emblazoned across the top and a close up of an eye below it wrapped in green reptilian-looking skin around it with a purple explosion in the middle of the eye.

    Are these books different in any way or is the one currently for sale just a repackaging of the one I already have?

    Thanks

    The one you have as a heard copy is Mongoose Traveller 1e and the one in the store here is Mongoose Traveller 2e. Besides the obvious differences in the core systems there is a difference in the adventure itself.

    The new 2E version is about 25% larger by page count 256 vs 202. They had one of their developers go through and rewrite, reorganize and update it to the current system. The maps and art have been improved. Deep down the story is basically the same but it seems better presented.

    The classic version, the free version, the 1E publication are like drafts and this looks closer to a finished project.

    Thanks for the replies. I ordered the book and have been looking over the PDF. It is a much better layout and has color, which is nice.

    Secrets of the Ancients is one of my favourite Traveller campaigns ever. I can't wait to get around to work on the new version.

    Might just do that before 3rd Imperium, not sure though, both are important!
    Ruleset and much more content built for FGU.

    The new Secret of the Ancients is such a vast improvement, if you haven't seen it you'll really like it.
