### Transit Times table from CRB.

Hi, This is where I embarrass myself my displaying my ignorance of space physics... In my copy of the Traveller Core Rulebook (2e), on page 153, there is a table titled "Transit Times". The first column is Distance (km) which is OK so far. But the remaining columns are headed "1G 2G 3G 4G 5G". For a...

### GMing: Tracking details during Combat (CRB, Chapter 3)

I am re-reading the Mongoose CRB (Core Rule Book) 2nd Edition, to improve my Traveller GMing skills. After working my way through (Chapter 3) Combat, I think I have come up with a list of details to be tracked by the GM during a combat:- * The Current Round number (starting at 1, just to help with o...

In reference to damage?
If so, it means destructive. Multiply the die result by 10. But check the rules for scales and effect.
I'll have a check and get back to you.

If anyone can provide the book page where the term DD is defined, that would be great.

### What does DD mean in 2e?

I was wondering, what does DD mean in the new Core Rulebook? Is it the same as 1e's D66?

Have you employed the trade rules yet? Trade, coupled with jobs from patrons seems to pay the bills pretty well.
Not yet. Currently reading CRB 2e. Thanks for the tip.

Speaking of which, my fellow referees, what methods do you use (if any) to encourage non-violent resolution to problems?
Still working on that. Also trying to understand how the typical Traveller adventure (flying around, trading a bit, generally acting like the A-Team) can make economic sense.

### Re: The Royal Navy is gonna be toothless for a while...

I am a touch typist, but unfortunately, not every key I type registers when I am typing in the edit windows, some letters get left out, and if I do not catch them before I submit, I sometimes don't bother to correct them, I figure people can figure it out over the typos. I also touch-type. I also p...

Matt, Is the MGTv2 going to be part of the Bits and Mortar program? There were some v1 books that my local game store said he could not find in pdf format.

### Re: Ship Design Philosophy

Going by a recent example, the electronics and programming seem to eat up half the development cost, and then you have to debug them. Personally I feel that regarding computers and programming, we're living in a strange time - things keep changing rapidly. I am no ship architect but, by the time of...

Because we were going strong in the 60s then crashed. The space program has been on idle with the Liberty station as a seldom noticed placeholder. We're not really trying. I do, of course, blame the economy of politics gumming it up. We should have had some sort of permanent research facility on Lu...

Which is why we release the PDF before we send the book to print :) We have a veritable battery of Traveller experts picking apart each book, but nothing beats a whole bunch of players!

While I also prefer hardcopy, I wouldn't say faster then searching a PDF.
The "Bits and Mortar" scheme means I have both book and PDF.

### Re: Mongoose News - The Printed Edition of Traveller has Arrived!

In order to support my FLGS I waited like a kid on the day before Christmas. Well today Christmas arrived. I am now a proud owner of a brand new 2e Mongoose Traveller core rule book in Hardback. :mrgreen: I waited patiently for the book to arrive in Travelling Man, Newcastle. Was worth the wait :)
