Re: Behind the Claw - Now in Stock!

I'd just like to say that this book surpassed expectations. It's a thing of beauty and a pleasure just to read for reading's sake. You convinced me to buy it. :) I was undecided as it will probably be a while before I get to run a campaign again, but sounds like it would be good to have on the shel...

Re: Anyone else read “The Expanse” series?

I’m reading the eighth now, and re-listening to 1 on audiobook when I drive. Great stuff. Sorry for the spoiler, now you know Holden and Amos don’t die in the book you’re reading. :) No worries. While Ty Franck is George RR Martin's assistant, so far it seems that he's not intent on copying Martin'...

Re: JTAS 4 Sensor operations

Yes, this article seems to be a replacement set of rules to those in the core rule books, as they completely change a couple of fundamental things: namely the effect of range and the effect of actively scanning on giving away one's own position.

JTAS 4 Sensor operations

The article 'Sensor Operations' in JTAS no. 4 gives some more detailed rules on detecting other ships in space. Thanks to the author and to Mongoose for this, as it is something I have been looking for more information on for a while. I do, however, have a lot of questions about the new rules, mostl...

Why not read a decent book on military organisation? That way you'll know what sort of rank commands what sort of force.
I recommend Catch-22 :)

Re: Resolving the Admiral Darokyn subplot

Treasure Ship? Thanks for the pointer. While sneaking on to the ship is covered as an option in that adventure, there isn't a lot of detail in that of the sort I'm looking for, unless I have overlooked something. If you’re interested in how an Imperial Navy vessel runs, you may want to check out th...

Resolving the Admiral Darokyn subplot

Hello, Is there an adventure or article that involves 'breaking in' to a starship? The Travellers in my Drinax campaign have managed to get themselves smuggled aboard Darokyn's flagship (which I've decided to make a Chrysanthemum destroyer escort) with the aim of hacking evidence of his collusion wi...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

My group has just come to the end of Treasure of Sindal. While the Travellers' being able to outgun the PRC does mean it will probably change the way the PRC approaches the Travellers, I don't think it will necessarily spoil the adventure. The Travellers need the PRC's help, so while the PRC may not...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Psions imbalance things and make it difficult to run your adventures. In what way? The use of telepathy can reveal information you want to keep hidden, and can also give away people hiding in ambush. But in the latter case, a neural activity scanner can do the same thing. I haven't found it to be t...

Re: The Traveller Companion - PDF & Pre-Order

Oh, I might have misunderstood, in that case. I thought that the updated PDF included corrections to minor errors that were pointed out on this thread (like 'diamter' on p.140 or the lack of a full stop at the end of the second para on page 2). If not, then no worries. I can live with mistakes like ...

Thanks, I just did again -- I searched for one of the errors pointed out above (page 140: 100-diamter limit) and it still appears.

Thank you for your comments - the Traveller Companion file has now been updated. Simply re-download and you will be good to go!
I purchased the PDF direct from the Mongoose website rather than via drivethrurpg and just re-downloaded it, but it doesn't seem to be an updated version.

Thanks,

Dan.
