Re: Vacc suits for free?

So, having a bunch of TL8 vacc suits come with the ship should be ok? I mean sure, my game my rules, but it’s interesting to hear other people’s reasoning. On the one hand it does seem reasonable to bake in a couple of suits when the ship-loan is arranged, and I’d also give them some uniforms, on th...

Re: K’kree char-gen question

Interesting house-rule, might I inquire why? They already get a number of background skills, is it to ensure they always get a solid start in their career?

K’kree char-gen question

Greetings, Since all K’Kree must choose warrior for their first term, I assume this means they gain all warrior skills at level 0? And also, when they begin their caste-career and begin basic training in term 2, they choose one skill from the relevant career path and gain that at level 0? And then r...

Vacc suits for free?

Greetings, Just curious, how do people handle vacc suits for new groups? Do you generally assume that ships come with a proper vacc suit for each crew member (possibly hostile environment for the engineer(s)) plus a bunch of emergency suits scattered throughout the ship? Or, emergency suits for ever...

Re: Become a Journalist for the Travellers' Aid Society!

While we wait, let’s play a game… it’s called “who’s the idiot that didn’t write anything down because surely he’d remember such important details?”.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to recreate them from scratch and memory… :)

Re: High Guard Update - Comments Needed!

Unless I'm thinking of Trillion Credit, there's a computer programme that coordinates defence between various ships. You might be thinking of TCS. I had a look. P.24 has Point Defence Network, that allows several ships to combine their point defense resources. It’s not a computer program though, it...

Re: High Guard Update - Comments Needed!

I had to re-check the book, but the amount of accomodation in relation to staterooms was fatigue-related (p.58), not morale as I claimed. That said, I’d love more in-depth rules for this, and especially if they’re broken down for different species as well as the level of training of the crew. A soci...

Re: High Guard Update - Comments Needed!

I think Geir is right. Gaming Area, Training Area is all just common area. Those where done since there are specific rules attached to those. I was actually saying that Training Area makes sense, Gaming doesn't. Gaming is way cheaper than Common and the only rule I see is self-contained in the desc...

Possible/likely. Not sure where I’ve put my 1st Ed books, so I can’t double-check for you…

Re: Needing more detailedway to calculate orbits

I think it was Mongoose First where you could order a temporary extra one gee acceleration, relatively consequenceless. You still can in 2nd Ed. Overload drive on p.160 (core rulebook) EDIT: Solomani Rim discusses short-duration overthrusts on p.184-185 as well. Basically the same as in the ruleboo...

Are these the same as the ones that have been included in recent kickstarters?
They are indeed.
Nice! They both played important roles in me upgrading my KS pledges, and for anyone wondering: they’re both great!
