Perhaps an Energy Blade could be used in a similar manner as a Marine Corps Saber with Dress uniform. The Projection Hilt would be worn as part of Formal Dress, and while lethal within arm's reach, is more a ceremonial function. Then again, one of the main reasons swords EXIST in the Traveller unive...

Most of that work is property of the companies that hired me to do it (Sony, Sega, Nintendo). I'll see if I have anything in my "Rough" files that might be postable.

I have a lot of Old Crow, they are SUPERB. However I also HIGHLY recommend Ground Zero Games! Their High Tech Grav tanks are VERY Traveller and they have tons of vehicles and minis of all types. http://www.gtns.co.uk/store1/commerce.cgi?page=sg15-fp.html&cart_id=8170011.31502 http://www.gtns.co.uk/s...

Great Review and I agree on most points of the Critique. I built a 400 Ton Sword Worlds "Convoy Raider" as a test-case mounting Jump-3 Maneuver-4 with Three Twin turrets (Beam/Beamx2, Missile/Missile) and a 50-ton Particle Bay. Made me feel like I did when I first got the LBB High Guard so long ago....

I think the Fifth Element may be a bit..wacky.. for my Space Opera tastes as far as RPGs go ( I loved the movie. very fun).

If I had to play with settings, I would prefer a "Riddick/Pitch Black" setting.

That's tough. It's hard to work on licensed properties anyway, let alone when someone has a stick up their tailpipe and screws with you. As someone who has worked on Licenses ranging from Duke Nuke'em to BMW to Metroid, I know. Don't let it get to you. What will be, will be. Just remain pleasant to ...

The way i would do it is with a pair of 400 ton Corsairs on Long, opposing "dead Orbits" that sweep through the likely Jump zone so they get coverage for a fair percent of the time. When one hits paydirt, the other lights off its Drive and starts a ruckus to draw off the law. while the actual raider...

Actually, if you think about it, it shouldn't be ALL that hard to predict where a cargo ship will break out of Jump Space if it is going to an inhabited planet. Your charts would place where the destination planet is located in the system along its orbital path so that you would ideally jump in with...

I've been using the EVE-Online soundtrack (Freely downloadable from their site), Homeworld, Homeworld II, Gears of War, and the Halo Soundtracks to get in the mood before doing game-related Art.

Also, some Eureka 7 and Metal Gear Solid on occasion.

Art from my Mongoose:Traveller campaign

Here's a quick one. Side view of a Sword Worlds "Goblin" Light tactical fighter. I'll see if I can't get the Vargr Raider Medium fighter and Vargr "Hunter" Class Raider-carrier up soon.

Use the link below. I stripped the original one in this post to shift it's position on the site.
