Re: Looking for a good published adventure for Wildeman

Thanks for the advice, guys. I've picked up a copy of Beltstrike and will probably adapt something from it for use in the upcoming game, sprinkling its campaign in as tolcreator suggests. But I will definitely be doing something along these lines you outline, Reynard, for a subsequent system.

Looking for a good published adventure for Wildeman

Greetings everyone! :) Kingside_Bishop here... I have introduced some old high school buddies to Traveller, and we've started playing a regular game via Skype and Roll20. I'm the referee. So far they're liking it, but we've only gone through chargen and some light roleplay. Unfortunately, they didn'...

Imperium's ship designation (i.e. IMS, TIS...?)

What would the Imperium's ship preface abbreviation be? You know, like USS for United States Ship, or HMS for Her Majesty's Ship. What would it be in the Third Imperium? Has anyone come across a reference to this?

Google Docs character sheet and chargen record

Hello! :) I am preparing to run a Roll20/Skype game with some IRL friends from many moons ago. As part of my preparation for this I have created a couple of Google Docs I thought I'd share with everyone: a very simple character sheet, and a chargen record to aid me in walking my friends through the ...

CRB vs. HG range tables... which one to use?

Hello everyone. I'm back with another quick query for the community. :) A player in my PbP game recently raised the question: "Are we using the range table from High Guard?" I am a new GM, and had missed this table (HG page 73) on my skim of the book. I am all for using the most up to date edition o...

Re: Failed divert power roll

Are we saying only positive Effect is available since the roll must eventually succeed? Or does Divert Power represent how well we performed the task and affected the actual jump. Lol, that is the question I'm asking very succinctly put! Funny that you, the ship's engineer and the man rolling the d...

Failed divert power roll

Hello, I have a question for the experienced players here. What happens when a character fails the divert energy roll when jumping? The way I see it two things could happen: A) The jump drive does not function and the engineer can try the divert energy roll again, or B) The jump drive functions, and...

Re: Trojan Reach: Hierate/Imperium Trade Route ... why not E

Remember too this region has a tragic history from two hundred years back. Exe may have been damaged severely and still recovering. Some organization may be trying to induce trade and maybe colonization by upgrading the old C class facilities to B thus encouraging traders to switch to a shorter rou...

Re: Trojan Reach: Hierate/Imperium Trade Route ... why not E

Thanks for the input, everyone. :) And thanks to Ieqo for not rereading the adventures lol! It seems the consensus is there there is no good (ie confirmable) reason for the trade route to avoid Exe, unless it's that there is insufficient population to support good trade -- which isn't too valid sinc...

Hello, I am refereeing an online game of the Pirates of Drinax (hello to any of my players out there! :D), and have been reading up on everything and have just a few quick questions. One thing I've been wondering about for a long time is why the Hierate/Imperium trade route bypasses the Exe system. ...

The game will be running there, and that's where the setup thread is. I think Traveller is particularly well suited to PbP! :) @iego:...

Oh yeah... that works. :) I had clicked on the link for Pirates, but then noted that you just download it from the screen. So I missed the link in the confirmatory email. Thanks a lot!

Hello! I'm an aspiring Traveller referee, about to take my first leap into GMing what looks like a most excellent gaming system. :) I've bought the Core Rulebook, had a good read, and have decided to run a pre-gen campaign as I am completely unfamiliar with the setting although it sounds very intere...
