comment What is the most accessible edition of Traveller?
Agreed. Mashing the lifepath of the character's previous career really didn't work with the d20 character levels. And the planetary system generation is reprinted almost wholesale from the Little Black Books. I own it and I'd give it a pass.

@Sardathrion The flip side of that is systemless gaming ain't for everyone. But if you're looking for mystery, don't give the players a system.

You can play it that way, or you can keep using the rules and eliminate the rules questions by putting the rules in a black box and hiding them from your players. I did go completely systemless once, loosely based on AD&D. I bought a single d20 and that was the only die I used for the entire campaign. It focused the players on the story instead of the mechanics and it worked well for me.

I edited the answer to include your clarifications, except point 4 for which I have neither the mental fortitude nor my 4e books to tackle at the moment. grin

Thanks! Typing madly after midnight spawns errors, so thanks for catching and clarifying those points. Also Secret Societies as detailed in Famine in Far-Go are officially called Cryptic Alliances.
