Re: What do you Want to see in PDFs?

The way that SJ Games builds in a complete navigation/bookmarking system is great.

Re: Campaign Guide now on PDF

Ugh, how disappointing. I found jedavis's review to be quite helpful, as he was clearly sincere and obviously upset (as was said, reviews from a "hurt" customer are always believable). And frankly, knowing that the book was written by the author of Robots really turns me off. That book had potential...

Re: Suggested (Unoffical) CSC Erratta and Amendments

An interesting point of view on the level of detail, but you are talking to someone who is playing GURPS at the moment and enjoying every nitty, gritty detail... For me, the CSC was the product that got me interested in Traveller. If it were to become oversimplified by ignoring the fundamental diffe...

Re: Suggested (Unoffical) CSC Erratta and Amendments

Actually, I think that's backwards. The automatic rifle is correct, it's the self-loading rifle that is wrong and needs its damage upped to 3d6+3 SAP. That said, there are clearly issues with all damages. There really ought to be several tiers of rifle ammo damage, and there are, but they relate to ...

Re: Suggested (Unoffical) CSC Erratta and Amendments

Good stuff, but I disagree on the autorifle. I think the assault rifle and autorifle are two different weapons, basically corresponding to a 5.56mm assault weapon and a 7.62mm battle rifle in today's terms. The increased damage of the autorifle is balanced by the higher Recoil and lower magazine cap...

Re: print/pdf bundle for 2300AD?

I'd probably be interested in a 2300AD subscription type program especially if it involved a print/PDF combination.

Re: Second Edition - Comments Wanted!

A vehicle system for the 4th edition has not yet been publi- shed. Not quite true. There is the whole GURPS Spaceships line with rules for designing...uhh...spaceships. But in Pyramid, (Alternate GURPS...I think it's #3/36 or so) there are rules for adapting the Spaceships rules for most types of v...

Re: Book X and Supplement X - Comments Wanted!

This might be a strange request, but I'd like to see an "Advanced Rules Supplement" for stuff like Hit Locations in combat, partial armor, advanced options in melee and ranged combat. Sort of a "these rules may slow down play but they add detail" kind of thing. I don't know that anyone else would wa...

Re: Second Edition - Comments Wanted!

If there was real added value to the second editions beyond incorporated errata, then I'd definitely buy them. Specifically, CSC, High Guard, and Robots would be books I would re-buy if they were completely "fixed" (beyond the errata--you'd need to include all the missing rules alluded to in CSC, et...

Re: Oh to be a fly on the wall,,,

Personally, I like the chargen system as laid out in Terra/Sol Games' Tinker, Spacer, Psion, Spy supplement. It's the best of both worlds and I like how it de-couples the second skill roll from advancement and links it to survival instead. Good stuff!

Re: Oh to be a fly on the wall,,,

To each his own indeed. Everything you listed about MGT that you don't like is exactly WHY I like it. Of course, if I want a non-random chargen game, I'll play something else entirely. Like GURPS.

Re: Whats the point of beam lasers now?

Personally, I find that the High Guard changes to lasers make little to no sense. Especially since beam lasers get exactly the same accuracy as every other weapon, it's hard to argue that they are "accurate." They are only accurate compared to the -2 that pulse lasers get (note that this is itself, ...

Re: Interesting armor idea I saw over on CoTI...

That's actually how T20 did things. And it might be T4's system as well. Regardless, MGT's armor values aren't calibrated to that type of damage system. It'll make the lower armor values far more effective than they should be and make the higher armor values all but impenetrable. Combat armor with P...

Re: Legend for just $1!

Clever 'Goose! Way to get #1 on DTRPG sales charts with a $1 Legend. Very interesting business decision, I hope it gets tons of new people hooked on Legend.

It's kind of like the "console model," where you sell the hardware at a loss (at least initially) so that everyone buys the games!
