I have wanted to run 2300AD for years but have never gotten the chance. With Warhammer 2E wrapping up next week, I'm going to start 2300AD (it narrowly beat our Hostile as the next RPG to run).

Rather than use the original GDW rules I think I'm going to use Cepheus Engine and a combination of the original books on CD ROM(!) and the newer 2300AD books from Mongoose. I like that Cepheus Engine has a free doc with cybernetics which goes well with Core Earth.

Anyone encountered any surprises using Cepheus Engine for example a rule that varies quite a bit from Traveller? Or is it basically the same rules? 2300AD from Mongoose reference Mongoose Traveller 1E in places.

The Mongoose 2300 AD are a modified form of Mongoose Traveller 1E just as Cepheus is a modified form of Mongoose Traveller 1E. I don't see any issues in adapting any of the Mongoose 2300AD to Cepheus.
