Re: A couple of quick questions

For 7, I was thinking why not use the task chain rules, even if they work simultaneously..? Assign a primary shifter, the character that needs to beat 12+. Everyone else involved makes a regular Str check (or profession (cargo handler), athletics (str) or whatever’s most appropriate) and reference t...

Re: Is there a 2D deckplan for Deepnight Endeavour?

Old School, are you thinking about Deepnight Revelation? The Deepnight Endeavour is a custom-designed battleship-sized exploration ship featured in the Great Rift adventure with the same name. That said, I don’t believe there are any official 2D plans for it. If you happen to own the Element cruiser...

Re: Fleet Combat/Quite-A-Lot-Of-Credits-Squadron Game?

The bay quote on p.90 is from the capital ships combat chapter, so yeah I’d say it applies..

Re: Fleet Combat/Quite-A-Lot-Of-Credits-Squadron Game?

Also, since there were discussions on whether the fighters should get salvo defence or not, I’m reminded of this, from high Guard, p.85: Any fighter or squadron equipped with pulse or beam lasers may use the Point Defence action (see page 160 of the Traveller Core Rulebook) to defend either themselv...

Re: Fleet Combat/Quite-A-Lot-Of-Credits-Squadron Game?

High Guard, p.90:
Bay Weapons: All bays suffer DM-2 when attacking targets of less than 2,000 tons.

Were range modifiers from p.89 applied?

Re: Fleet Combat/Quite-A-Lot-Of-Credits-Squadron Game?

Just double-checking, you did account for the particle bays getting -2DM to hit the Gazelles, right?

In regular combat, that would have been negated by the Aslan Cruisers having fire control/5, but that’s only relevant for spinal mounts, right?

Re: How to let players generate the characters they want without letting them min/max?

Events are rolled as normal, one per completed term, but the Traveller obviously cannot have suffered a Mishap that would result in being forced out of the service. Instead, a Survival roll is made each term as normal, and Mishaps are applied if necessary. If the result requires the Traveller to le...

Re: Fleet Combat/Quite-A-Lot-Of-Credits-Squadron Game?

The Halaheike class has:
2x small particle bays
4x triple beam laser turrets
6x missile/missile/sand turrets

Are we using the standard 10 dt fighter from High Guard for the Aslan fighters?

Re: How to let players generate the characters they want without letting them min/max?

The naval campaign handbook has its own method to generate characters through a special form of points-buy system. No random skill-gains, since if your character is gonna be a cruiser pilot they’d better have the necessary skills for it :) unlike regular games where your role might be decided by wha...

Re: Fleet Combat/Quite-A-Lot-Of-Credits-Squadron Game?

Two thoughts regarding sandcasters: 1) Perhaps they’re not ignored, but assumed to always be used and thus integrated into laser damage? A 1D beam laser deals 3.5 damage on average, while burst lasers average 7. A single sandcaster canister removes 3.5 laser damage. Round down for sand and up for la...

Re: Fleet Combat/Quite-A-Lot-Of-Credits-Squadron Game?

First off, thanks for creating this thread, I’m following it with great interest! I’ve been meaning to take a detailed look at fleet battles several times but never quite gotten around to it, so this is a perfect time for me! The suggested setup of destroyer escorts and Gazelles vs 6x Halaheike soun...

Re: Naval Campaign Book questions

I don’t have the book available right now, but could it be that the DM +2 for picking an A-team refers to the team and their checks rather than those of the ship?

Re: Behind the Claw

Besides, why worry about there being enough docking space available at the starport when your own ship basically i...

Imagine touring charted space in that - quite the adventure! Until you gotta pay for everything.... :) If you have to ask, you can't afford it... I know :( But hey, a man can dream, right? Isn’t that even one if the reasons we play these games, so we can go anywhere, be anyone and all that :)
