Re: How does the patrol corvette land?

Thanks for the input everyone! While I do agree that the Type T has enough tools to not need to be able to land, I prefer if it can, so that's how I'll play them :) While spindly mantis legs would definitely be interesting, I feel that folding fins and 'regular' landing gear is the way to do it. A r...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Question for those who have run the Treasure Ship Adventure: Irontooth’s vessels include a “300 ton bug-class” salvage hauler. I cant find this vessel. The ships book details a 400 ron vulture class, but no 300 ton. Is there somewhere I’m supposed to be looking for this vessel’s particulars, or is ...

How does the patrol corvette land?

Greetings, I have a simple and perhaps slightly silly question... how does the type T patrol corvette land? Does it: A) use the lower vertical fins on the wingtips as rear landing legs? B) fold the vertical fins and extend landing gear? C) not land (I.e. despite being streamlined and relatively smal...

Re: So, what's with the supplements?

Yeah, that would probably be better! Let these books focus on adventure scale and release a separate “capital ships of the alien races”-book, or perhaps bundle it with Frontier war? I’m not sure which of the other races that have large ships, or how they measure up to the imperium’s, but I’d love to...

Re: So, what's with the supplements?

It sounds like a terrific idea! Are we talking about something along the lines of Pirates of Drinax book 2, pages 26-119, with history, culture, CSC, vehicle handbook and high guard entries for each race? Beacause that would be absolutely awesome! :D Much of the text can be re-used from the existing...

Only one thing to do - create three variants of the ship so you get to use all names :)

Re: Traveller as a Spaceship Modeling Hobby

According to High Guard, common areas have laundry and it’s not uncommon for staterooms to have food preparation units (possibly autochefs from CSC) ACCOMMODATIONS Most ships utilise the humble stateroom, but other types of accommodation are possible. All accommodations listed in this book other tha...

Re: So...about State of the Mongoose 2017...

Matthew, do you happen to have an outline of the updated Mercenary book that you can share? Actually no, as a lot of our original plans have changed somewhat :) However, if you take a look at the Naval Campaigns book in the Element Cruisers set, you should get a good idea of the territory we will b...

Re: The players' covenant

But couldn’t that still result in a clash between characters if one of the players wants to re-roll and create a new character? I mean, if the characters are more important, then the chemistry between them would be too, as opposed to a campaign where the characters are mainly stat blocks? If the sta...

Re: Particle beam radiation damage

Well, the beam laser does have DM+4 to hit (core rulebook p.156) which is useful for civilian traders where the gunner might not be top of the class retired naval gunner. As for standard weapons, it’s cheaper, and for a Free Trader simply having weapons might scare off minor pirates in non-dedicated...

The Harrier’s armory

Greetings, I’m just curious to hear what the various Pirates of Drinax groups might have in the armory of their Harrier. For instance, the Harrier booklet contains a selection of Sindalian weaponry, does anyone use them? Armour-wise, are the players given access to boarding vacc suit or even combat ...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Game of Sun and Shadows - supply lines

And also one in pirates of Drinax, the patrol tender on p.32.

The larger tender that phavoc spoke of sounds like three patrol tenders and two magenta repair ships (also from Drinax) merged into one ship, or twice that depending on size.
