Re: [Traveller 2e] Psionics and range band confusion

Psionic abilities indeed use the psionic range bands. Thanks for that Matt. Whilst we're on the subject of psionics, in MGT 1e the damage from a psionic Assault is applied as follows: Unlike normal damage, assault damage is applied to Psionic Strength (if the victim has it), then Intelligence, then...

Re: [Traveller 2e] Psionics and range band confusion

So no official reply from Mongoose on this issue, then?

I still don't know whether to use the encounter range band distances or the psionic range band distances - which do I use?

[Traveller 2e] Psionics and range band confusion

I am confused about which range band table in the 2e core rulebook I should use for psionic abilities. The following paragraph is on page 197 (print)/198 (PDF) of the 2e core rulebook: Most abilities can be used at a distance and have a Reach characteristic. This is the distance (using the Range Ban...

Re: Book 1: Mercenary Second Edition - Now on Drivethru

We're being asked to pay to keep up to date on something we've already bought. Doesn't seem right.

Re: Book 1: Mercenary Second Edition - Now on Drivethru

Wow. So the 2nd edition is a separate product to the 1st edition, which means if you bought the 1st edition you have to buy 2nd edition separately to keep up to date, which then makes the the 1st edition redundant? Cheers for that then... :roll:

Re: [Universal Machine] Basic Character Generation 2d6 SF SR

It seems like this is an attempt to reverse-engineer some of the sections omitted from the "official" SRD - think of it as a Traveller retroclone :D ...snip...

Re: Basic Character Generation 2d6 SF SR

Isn't an SRD free... Not necessarily - just check out Mongoose's own Legend series of books. They are all OGC and can be considered to be types of SRD yet they're not free. Note that there is no free Word document version of Legend available. Although the d100 system itself, on which Legend is base...

Re: Basic Character Generation 2d6 SF SR

It's a scam of some kind on drive thru rpg. Selling sections of a core book at $1 a page. The PDFs are still for sale there. Nope, it's not a scam and it's not selling sections of a core book as none of the content has come from any core book - it's all OGC/OGL and you get a number of files in diff...

The character with the bomb trigger tripped and he failed his saving throw. He landed face down (up?) on top of the bomb trigger and set off the bomb. Our characters died from the blast. The End.

Character generation, ship building and world generation are games within themselves, as well as being tools with which to construct the game universe. The thing I always disliked about D&D was the "here's a dungeon, there's gold, kill the monsters to get to it" game. Maybe it was the D&D DMs I play...
