Join Ang, Di, and J.T. for a discussion about running a setting that’s new to the GM, and introducing a setting that’s new to the players. Can these gnomes get familiar enough with their new setting to avoid being thrown in the stew?

I love the Traveller setting, and when a friend of mine wanted to run a GURPS Traveller game, I jumped in. He used me as a resource for “official” lore, while my character (an engineer) kept having to say, “That shouldn’t be possible.” I loved having my expectations upended, and the GM loved my reactions to his messing with the setting.
