Re: Fessor Cargo Multipurpose Ship

1. Does each of the Fessor's pod maneuver drives combine with to make up the 8 ton maneuver drive? No. Remember, one of the pod options is just extra cargo space with nothing additional. If detached they need tugs to maneuver them. 2. Does each or the Fessor's pod power plants and fuel tankage comb...

Re: Fessor Cargo Multipurpose Ship

You know, this is by far the most discussion I think I've ever gotten on one of my works. Maybe I should make a mistake more often? *Joking*

Wow. It looks like a rolled a 2 when designing this one. I'll look into fixing it.

Re: Roll20 vs Fantasy Ground

I use fantasy grounds. Having the rules programmed into it make the difference for me.

Re: [JBE] Take on the Fessor Gambit during Fantasy Grounds Con

Timing is kinda tough on those of us with day jobs, but I understand you gotta play when you can play and I appreciate you making the effort to host games. I hope they go well. Thanks. It went well. Good feedback. Hopefully I'll get it written into a proper adventure and have it available on DriveT...

Re: How long can a person survive in a low berth?

Frankly, they should last as long as the plot of your game needs them to. If someone has been in there an hour shy if a century and they die when it hits exactly 100 years, and they have to race against time to get the person unthawed using the weird configuration of such an old tube, then that is w...

Correct, yes.

Re: Trying to replicate/understand a ship design (MgT2 High Guard)

Do many designs utilise reaction drives and things like that, or do most 'current' MgT2 designs stick the standard drives? (And is a ship with a 4G and 7G drive just bonkers, or has "tech creep" resulted in things like that being more normal?) This ship is far from normal. The PDF of the ship goes ...

Re: Trying to replicate/understand a ship design (MgT2 High Guard)

See HG, p48 "Primitive and Advanced Spacecraft". For reaction drives we can use the advantage Fuel Efficient which reduces fuel consumption by 20% per TL above the minimum. A Reaction drive-7 is available by default at TL-9, so by TL-12 we can build it with 3 applications of the advantage Fuel Effi...

Re: Who Would Spec A Budget Power Plant?

I've used budget before, but always for one reason: flavor. If the world it was built on's technology isn't quite up to everyone else's, then it gets a budget version. Mind you, I work in the Foreven Worlds so tech levels are more fluid than in the Imperium.
