Re: Opposed Checks – Need help with rule interpretation

This hasn't come up in my game as yet, but I would rule that A 'wins' since A has the higher effect. But I would narrate the result in a way that reflects that both rolls in themselves were failures. For example, if the opposed rolls were to determine the outcome of a sporting contest, A wins becaus...

post mortem should be narrative driven.
I find it hard enough driving the narrative of the living universe, let alone what happens after a character dies. :D

Re: Starship combat: What happens when a turret or the bridge is destroyed?

A question along similar lines: what level of damage constitutes a hull breach?

Re: Combat damage effects and charactiscs DM

That's how I have understood damaged stats to function. It's also strongly implied by the rule on natural healing (CRB, p, 79): A Traveller who requires surgery only regains characteristic points equal to his END DM per day of rest, which means that the Traveller may never heal naturally and will ev...

Re: Is there a comprehensive 2nd ed Errata?

Excuse my hijacking, but I had a couple of rules to query: - how long do ship repairs take? On page 60, the timeframes table lists 'repairing a damaged ship' as an example of something taking 1D x 10 hours. On the same page, under the Going Faster or Slower example, it says 'Repairing the engine wou...

Re: Pirates of Drinax patron quests.

Maybe the Thalassans aren't in control at all. Maybe the bio-engineered plant matter became sentient and now controls the people of the planet. Hey, I like that idea, and think I will borrow it -- probably not to the extent that the plant matter has taken over the world, but maybe as a nasty surpri...

Re: Pirates of Drinax patron quests.

So, as mentioned above, my next session will see the players maybe heading off to Thalassa at the behest of Provost Shala. Now, the Thalassans are supposed to be schemers and manipulators, so I'm trying to think of how that will play out. One idea I had is that the whole idea of stealing the data an...

Space combat range bands and thrust

I've been looking at movement in space combat and think I might have been doing it wrong. According to CRB page 156, it takes 25 points of thrust to move from Very Long range down to Long range or up to Distant range (a distance of, at most, 25,000km). The way I've been doing it thus far is that if ...

Re: Pirates of Drinax patron quests.

***SPOILER ALERT*** Ah, I am at the same point as you in the Drinax campaign, and looked at the Clarke encounter as a possible next adventure, but decided to steer clear of it for now and go for the Torpol one instead. It seems to have taken the players interest, so now I have to generate something ...

Yes, thanks for sharing this (and the earlier one). Haven't read them, so no feedback as yet, but just wanted to share the appreciation.

Re: Pirates of Drinax: GM questions

Next question: The Harrier has a hull equipped with Superior Stealth, meaning that most sensors checks to detect it are going to fail (I am not sure if a sensors check to detect a ship is routine or average, but either way the chance ranges from low to impossible). Does that mean that the Harrier ca...

Re: Trojan Reach World Profiles (UWP) Discrepancies

FWIW, for my campaign I'm going to be using the poster map -- once the printed version arrives (I see it's now been pushed back to January, grrrr) -- as the point of reference for the players. Thus the UWPs on there will represent the basic data they are getting from their ship's computer library da...
