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...

Re: Exactly how foolish was I?

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.

Re: ship rental - costs and problems. Do we break char gen if ships are too easy to get?

I have implemented the idea of Licenses. One that i have is a "Ship's Master" license (thank you David Falkayn). Requires Piloting-1, Navigation-1 and Engineering-1. No Astrogation-1? Can’t get far without it. Depending on the system you are using the Navigation skill used to be the Astrogation ski...

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

Re: What happens if 2 black globes touch?

I have always read this as Gravity doesn't affect what crosses a BGG. Therefore, if a ship is in orbit and activates its generator, it will begin moving in a straight line, per the exact velocity vector it had at the instant the generator was activated. It moves out of orbit at a tangent to its orbi...

Re: Dedicating POW to a God

Interesting question. In the decades I’ve been playing RQ-derived games I’ve never thought about defining stats for deities. I guess what I’d do is allow them access to cult magic-like abilities. If you need to define it, I guess you could allow them to use the abilities a number of times based on ...
