Ask me if you need some help with Portuguese. The original 2300 had some silly names that could be improved.

I am not familiar with Strontium Dog comics. What the rpg can bring to the Traveler table rules wise? Not much. Detailed rules for grotesque mutants, HUGE hand guns, sorcery, weapons that slip people through time and the dimensions. Some great, western-inspired worlds with villains to hunt for boun...

I've run a few adventures this way. It would be a cool supplement.

Mac, both at work and home. I gave up on windows almost 20 years ago and I am glad I don't have to interact with it anymore.

I recall the old FASA Star Trek roleplaying game included a career based character generation system. It shouldn't be hard to adapt it to Traveller, which was probably the inspiration source. Anybody else remember it?

Initiative

I gave up buying Mongoose Traveller soon as I read the 3.2 draft. I considered that, despite some clear improvements in character generation, combat rules were ruined with the reliance in overcomplicated initiative rules. Just by luck I checked Mongoose site for the first time in a few months and re...

I was very excited with a new edition of Traveller heavily based in classic. However, after a good start, development went in a direction that left me cold. I consider Traveller a great game as it is very simple and easy to modify. Despite being a very good introductory game, it allows as much depth...

Mongoose Traveller initiative is just too complicated to casual gamers and, thus, not really a good choice for Traveller. I believe it would work fine as an optional rule, in the same way as T/E. However, making it a main rule it will only make it harder to new gamers.

It is ridiculous to have the influence of Characteristics being: a) greater than the 'professional' level of a skill (apparently now: 2 ) b) the equivalent bonus given to that of a superhuman, in D20 terms. c) mathematically out of kilter with the formula used by the rest of the table. It's not app...

Currently, it's * 1 skill per term automatically. * If you get promoted (which you can do in any career), you get another skill roll. * You get all the basic skills for a career at level 0 (no benefit when you roll, but you don't get the big Unskilled penalty) * When you roll an event, there's a ch...
