Re: Imperial Family Travel Arrangements

I like your write up quite a bit. I think it "feels" right. However, other/past Emperor/Empresses probably did have more Pomp than Strephon. Nothing says "Emperor" like a BatRon of Tigresses... I would also think the local sector they are travelling through would provide an additional "Honor Guard" ...

Re: Aslan Corporation Benefit.

If you want to burn through excess profits, you could say that clan shares are like consolidated annuities, and you're expected to use the money to maintain your social status, however that's defined in Aslan society. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single Aslan in possession of a go...

Re: Chasing clarity

"Shameless Plug mode ON"
I wrote an adventure called "The Bronze Case" for TAS. There is a car chase described in there with guidelines on how to run it.
"Shameless Plug mode OFF"

I don't know there are a lot of details within the MGT1/2 world. The above example being the only one I know of.

Re: Where's that Gunner Sit?

I served on a missile cruiser for a few months while in the US Navy. I have always used remote turret controls. Sure, Star Wars style turret gunners are possible, but as the number of turrets increase, you need a Fire Control Center, which allows face to face control by a Fire Control Officer. REALL...

Re: Low Passage rules query

"An Average [8+] task is a moderate obstacle to a trained professional." That sounds very reasonable for such a piece of technology dealing with a delicate process to suspend a biological unit precisely. Most real life medical equipment of the same caliber should be comparable. People without the b...

Re: Harvest hydrogen from sun

Not sure why you would think ANY system has no source of hydrogen. Water/Ice is one of the most common molecules in the universe. Even a system with no planets will still have small asteroids floating around, go far enough from the sun (beyond the habitable zone) and they will be icy asteroids. ICE ...

Re: Spaceship Interior Walls

The old Snapshot game had rules for doors, bulkheads and Iris Valves. Sorry, don't have it handy, but I know the numbers were there.

I want to say Doors were AV10 and Walls and Iris Valves were AV100???

Re: Wet Navy Combat Damage

I like you idea, but what if you just eliminate the need for the 1D6 roll to see if WDP damage is possible.

Just let every 6 by a DD weapon cause WDP damage. Maybe torpedoes or submerged weapons do WDP on a 5 or 6?

Reduces the number of dice you need to roll.

Re: Transfer of cargo in space

I believe these cargo movement rates would be accurate on a planetary surface, but I don't know that the same rates can be used for transferring cargo in space.

A cargo hatch is NOT a cargo airlock.

Re: Increasing the PSI stat

Via the Personal Development table on the Psion career.

Other than that, they would increase the PSI stat the same way they increase any stat in play - very difficulty.

Re: Increasing the PSI stat

MGT1 Psionics gives you a couple different options. Normally, you roll it 2D6 like any other stat. However, one important consideration not really mentioned in the main books, but discussed quite a bit in Psionics is: How common is psionics? strictly reading the main books, you get the impression th...

On a scale of 0 to F, this was a 0.0001

NO ONE within the Drinax campaign has the capability to capture a ship that large, especially in episode 1.

While allergies to other species, especially between Vargr and Humans, would be possible. The TL8 Panacea drug should cure it.
