My favourite bit from the Traveller playtest reports thus far

'My younger daughter wanted a dancer, but failed enlistment as an entertainer. She drafted into the navy, served 3 terms, then quit and fulfilled her dream of becoming a dancer (with a dex of 4!) for 3 more terms. “Cindy” turned out like this:
Stealth-2, Melee-1, Streetwise-1, Gunnery(Orb)-1, Pilot-0, Flyer(grav)-0, Vacc Suit-0, Computer-0, Zero-G-0, Mechanic-0, Gun(slug pistol)-0, Dance-0 
She really enjoyed getting the “minor celebrity” roll on her last term as an entertainer.'

In other news, I really need to be more aggressive when GMing. I suspect it's a factor of running too many sci-fi games lately.
