Name generators.

Hi,

I'm going to be running some Mongoose adventure modules, some set in the Spinward Marches, some set in the Trojan Reach, possibly with a bit of my own material, and was wondering what/which online name generators people use for this sort of thing.

TIA!

Re: Traveller Release Schedule/New Books

Aliens 1 cleared US Customs a while ago but the virus has somewhat dented distribution and it has not yet caught up - it should be in stores very soon though. Aliens 2 has only just cleared US Customs and that is likely to be a while longer (a month or so, at current rates). 1. Awesome! 2. You'd th...

Re: CRB : Triple and Double Turrets (p158)

each additional weapon adds +1 per damage dice A pulse laser rolls 2D (2dice) for damage, and as you see above the additional pulse laser add +1 per damage dice, two dice gives us +2 per weapon. Two pulse lasers add +2 each, for a total of +4, hence a triple pulse laser turret deals 2D+4 damage. 2D...

CRB : Triple and Double Turrets (p158)

Hi, A pulse laser does 2D damage. But when I read this on p158 of the CRB:- However, if two or more weapons are of the same type, they may be fired together. One attack roll is made for all weapons being fired, but each additional weapon adds +1 per damage dice to the final damage total. It makes me...

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

:) I like both, the SI prefixes (Go, metric system, go!) and the "lingo" name for money. Nothing says Scifi more than running a heist to tank a "multi yotta-chromium megacorp's business on a world. But I think lingo for money would vary from world to world or at least by sectors and cultures. The po...

A quick poll...

We mention the use of KCr in the Core Rulebook (as in Cr, KCr, and MCr), but we never properly implemented it.

Would you like us to do so in the equipment chapter?
Pretty much so, yes.
How do you intend to implement it?

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

Things for you to consider:- * A glossary. Useful for non-grognards. * An index. Useful for looking things up in play. * An extended table of contents, to be put opposite the first printed page. Outlandish suggestion:- On Inside front cover and inside back cover, put the tables from the Traveller Re...

All good points. I'll get on to my Hobby Horse :) Starting with the 1st Edition Traveller Core Rule Book (and continuing with the 2nd Edition), I have typed up an extended table of contents and used that to quickly look things up. It complements the official, much briefer table of contents quite nic...

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.

Viewing Traveller PDFs on an Amazon Fire HD tablet

Hi,

Is there anyone out there who views Traveller PDFs on a tablet?

Would be very interested to know if it works for you and what your experiences have been.

TIA,

One from https://www.mongoosepublishing.com/downloads.htm with a file size of 548741 bytes.

Which is the correct one?

Re: Spacecraft Operations - Running Costs

It's Cr 1000 per stateroom plus Cr 1000 per person, hence Cr 3000 per populated dual occupancy stateroom. The table is a bit confused. You're not kidding. Thanks for the clarification. Would be nice if Mongoose collated problems like this and kept them on their website. Or do they already do this? ...

Spacecraft Operations - Running Costs

Hi, I have a few issues with the economics of the traditional Traveller game. In particular, I am not sure that your typical troupe of adventurers could afford the mortgage payments of a new ship. One work-around is to give the players a battered old spaceship as a reward for a good deed or telling ...
