Re: Naomi Novak's 'Temeraire'

Also a fan of the series. I kicked around a few ideas for a Savage Worlds conversion. I had the idea of starting the dragon as being big enough to carry its captain and then buying more sizes as the character (not the dragon) advanced. Alternatively gain fire breath or increased speed as an advance...

Re: Hlaulrakh (Gravity Spear, TL14): technology breaker?

Sounds like the author watched a bit too much Stargate and wanted the kewel staff weapon in the game. Shame it doesn't exist in CT OTU, nor can it be built at TL14. I like the concept too. I've always thought that the Traveller tech scale should be revised a bit for high-tech stuff, so I have less ...

Re: New Paizo SF RPG: Competitor with Traveller?

Just wondering, does Spelljammer compete with Traveller? Starfinder is as much science fiction as is Spelljammer, they are both fantasy settings just on different levels. One valuable point to remember about Spelljammer competing with Traveller, right now in the modern era: Spelljammer is no longer...

Re: What would The Emperor do?

Summon him to Coruscant, electrocute him with Force Lightning and … oh.

Re: Is DNA universal

My rule of thumb is if they ask, some do and some don't.

My other rule of thumb is that no species that evolved on different planets can interbreed - if we can't interbreed with cats that evolved on the same planet as us, we can't interbreed with aliens which evolved on different planets.

I don't know enough about MGTv2 to comment on the mechanics of the design, but I enjoy the concept of the ship.

Re: Look Ma, no batteries needed!

It reminds me of Foundation, and how Terminus managed to come up with fission reactors smaller than a human thumb. It's interesting, but the probability is that the power generated is probably too little to do anything truly useful. Power an LED torch maybe, but anything else you'd probably want hu...

I recently grabbed the free Third Imperium Campaign I: Secret of the Ancients and wonder if the lore in the book is compatible to New Traveller or will New Traveller also have some reboot of the Setting lore?
It's as valid as you want it to be. Have fun with it, and use the lore you want. :)

You can always tie it to a survival skill.
Go for it if you like it.
Personally I would still use Vacsuit skill - as in, time spent in a suit in 0-g.

I've designed a couple of different yachts in my day, such as the Milky Wader class which is floating around here somewhere.
