From the Mongoose site:
"This box set will contain everything players need to dive into Traveller, from the rules (which, while the Core Rulebook will have more breadth, will not be a cut-down version of its rules) to a complete mini-campaign. The campaign is set in the Traveller Universe, but many, many light years away from the Third Imperium or, indeed, any part of Charted Space. It is our intention that it will serve as both an introduction into the mechanics and concepts of Traveller, as well as a long-running campaign that we may return to at a later date (possibly as part of an ‘advanced’ rules box set, but we will have to see…)."
So, it will at least have a streamlined set of basic rules (much like Savage Worlds does) and a complete campaign setting separate the Third Imperium. I think it comes down to how cool the campaign is and if the stripped down book is easier for players to use.
Cool. Thank you. If I'm reading that correctly, it is set in the Traveller universe with the Third Imperium. But it is remote. Far away. Virtually separate. Correct?
