My name is Javier, aka Zooroos in most forums. I'm a gamer from Argentina, a GM/Storyteller most of the times. I usually run WoD games, Fate games, and recently a D&D5E game.
I'm a big fan of Mindjammer, it's the first SciFi setting that re-kindled my love for the genre, after fifteen years or so of fantasy heartbreakers and modern horror games and books. I'm truly excited by this Kickstarter, and I hope we can enjoy a rich and stable line of books for years to come.

THOUGHTCASTING JAVIER@ZOOROOS MIND ONLY:
Welcome aboard Javier! I think we've chatted numerous times with you as Zooroos - it's great to put a name to the moniker! :)
Thanks for the great words about Mindjammer - I'm really excited by what we're all accomplishing over at the Kickstarter, and really looking forward to working with the team to produce a great line of books!
Looking forward to chatting with you more here. :)
this is a great idea to have a forum here, however, if you're new to the game and looking at this for the first time, head on over to the google+ community for mindjammer and monsters&magic. You'll find a lot more information and new ideas there. Oh yes, and Hello everyone! Sarah Newton is amazing!
Hi, just jumped late onto the Kickstarter bandwagon on a whim. I've flirted with FATE for a while but never bitten. As my small gaming group matures I've been thinking about giving it a go, and Mindjammer looks like an excellent vehicle to do so with, and self-contained too. Born in the UK, living in Bavaria.

Simon here, Swedish. Played a lot of Solar System and Apocalypse World over the last 5-10 years, plus a little bit of Fate. Really keen on trying out Fate Core and Mindjammer now!
Hi, have two players starting to form a game for remote play. First suggestions was "Space Truckers". I'm looking forward to running this. I have hardback book (beautiful) and all PDFs, I think. One player wants more Mindjammer background without spoilers. I told him it is vast and mostly up to us to define.
Any suggestions for short Mindjammer background for players?
Brass Jester, from the Black Country in the UK. Fell in love with Mindjammer when it was a supplement to Starblazer Adventures; have got the new hardback editions and just piked up the Traveller version. I've been looking to start a space sci-fi Game for my FtF group for some time; I run a PbF of Numenera over on BGG but I don't want to run two N Games at the same time. Traveller has always been a favourite; I ran several successful Games (FtF and solo), so MJ is the obvious choice.
Have met Sarah several times, she really is amazing!
Hi I'm Troy, usually go by Capheind online. I have been playing RPGs for years and Mindjammer off and on for a couple of years or so now. I just did a rambling discourse on why I like the game on my youtube channel. If your interested in RPGs and specifically Sci-fi RPGs you may want to subscribe as I intend to do more content focused on SCI-FI RPGs in general but Mindjammer specifically. I also have a few Mindjammer pre-gens on my old RPG blog which I'll be moving to the new one.
Hi. I recently bought Mindjammer and I'm loving the fluidity of the system combined with the richness of the setting and the huge variety of scenarios that you can create out of it. I'm currently starting to playtest a bit to get the hang of it, plus creating a campaign setting and basic plotlines etc. I've decided to start my PCs as inhabitants of a recently contacted (tech level 7 ish) colony. So the Commonality to them starts as a mysterious organisation that may or may not be benign. That way the PCs learn about the wider setting more gradually, rather than starting out as SCI agents. Although at some point the galaxy will open up for them... But for now they are stuck with their cultural 'The Commonality want to mind control us' meme and are going to take some convincing to let go of their prejudices.
