Slow drug to replace sleep?

Greetings, Silly shower-thought: can slow drug be used to replace regular sleep? At 30 times normal metabolism, 15 minutes of slow-induced rest could equal a full night’s sleep, assuming proper facilities and if the body actually rests during this time... so, would it work? I’m not thinking permanen...

Re: CRB : Triple and Double Turrets (p158)

each additional weapon adds +1 per damage dice A pulse laser rolls 2D (2dice) for damage, and as you see above the additional pulse laser add +1 per damage dice, two dice gives us +2 per weapon. Two pulse lasers add +2 each, for a total of +4, hence a triple pulse laser turret deals 2D+4 damage. 2D...

Re: Travellers Needed - Missiles (check our numbers)

Can you let me know where this comes from? Point defense is one of my main concerns, ... The point defense reaction is not an attack roll, and the laser to hit-bonus and fire control software specifically adds to attack rolls. Exactly. An attack is defined on p156: When a ship attacks another [ship...

Re: Travellers Needed - Missiles (check our numbers)

Very happy to hear that! I was honestly a bit worried that they’d end up different enough to more or less require the new books in order to keep up with future releases, glad that’s not gonna happen. Will there be any form of get-you-by update for the old versions, like tables with changes to weapon...

Re: Travellers Needed - Missiles (check our numbers)

The point defense reaction is not an attack roll, and the laser to hit-bonus and fire control software specifically adds to attack rolls. The point defense reaction, as detailed on p.160 is a gunner (turret) skill check, but not an attack. As a skill check, you add skill level and characteristic bon...

As a quick note, we have made the decision to keep missiles at 4D (though the nuclear option will remain at 1DD).
Thank you, good call!

8d regular missiles was too much, but 1DD nukes sounds fine. They were a bit on the weak side before.

Re: Travellers Needed - Missiles (check our numbers)

Are other weapons getting tweaks too? 8D damage missiles sounds like a lot, why would anyone ever want any other weapon? Other than that, I need to re-read it closely again, and compare it to the current text, but I don’t see much in the way of changes? While you’re changing the text, perhaps add a ...

Re: Shipyard Maintenance

Excellent questions, and I can provide nothing at all to answer them... However, it sounds reasonable that the monthly maintenance can be done during the week a ship normally spends in-system. The engineer(s) must do something to earn their pay while grounded, right? It could probably be spilt overt...

Re: Travellers Needed - Pirates of Drinax Reprint

Presumably, all updates from Aliens of Charted space are gonna carry over and back to PoD (more slots on the battledress, additional claw upgrade, higher RoF on the tauyuhrir...) but this might also be the perfect opportunity to fix the rad rating of Aslan battledress? Another thing that might warra...

Re: Solomani Front - eBook & Pre-Order

That’s how I’ve handwaved it too, but a point could be made that if the M-drive is limited to 1G then it can’t cancel out more than 1G and thus it would be unable to takeoff from a 1.1G world... I’ve just ignored it, and the newly presented solution is simple (and elegant) enough that one could almo...

Ok, first impressions are very positive, thoroughly enjoy what I’m seeing so far! Fantastic artwork and great writing throughout the book - I love the looks of the Solomani ships!

Re: The Solomani Front

Just curious, what kind of book are we talking here? Something similar to Sword Worlds, but obviously focusing on the Solomani and their neighborhood rather than Swordies and their backyard?

Re: New Traveller Books in Print

Good to hear! Speaking of new books, I got a notification yesterday that my copy of Drinax Companion is on its way, but I needed to pay 100 SEK (approx 8 £) extra to get it through customs (I believe the English terms are import VAT and declaration fee). Is this the post-Brexit future, or are there ...
