To Absent Friends [No, not an obit, thankfully]

Over the years, we have (sadly) lost a number of well-respected contributors to Our Community. I am requesting the community's assistance. Below is the list of names that I can recall; I would like the community to assist as follows: 1. Sort the roster below in order, the Friend who has been Absent ...

Technical: Add redirect page?

I used to have a memory that was the next best thing to photographic. However, I can't seem to remember that it's forum, singular, and not forums, plural, when typing the URI for the forums. When I type 'forums', I get directed to a "powder blue" page; why not set it up so that that page does an aut...

Re: Feedback requested: Starship Illustration format.

I like the sample page, except that for the stats, you want the text to be black and the grey background to be somewhat lighter. Separately, I'd like to see deck plans, and not isometric ones, either - plain black-and-white line drawings are ideal.

Re: Art:200 Ton Free trader

Please, wbnc, contact me by email, editor@freelancetraveller.com. I think that if you can do some scenes that fit nicely in 8.3x11, with 'bleed' to go out to 8.5x11.7, you can have some Freelance Traveller covers.

Re: Ideas For New Psi Powers

I've never particularly liked the idea of psi at all, and certain of the powers just strain credulity a bit too much for me. Also, I tend to be a "fellow traveller" with respect to the idea of Old School Roleplaying, where you don't have a skill for everything; you make do with what you do have, and...

Re: High Skill Rollers 2: Persuade

I could also see a not-quite-top persuader being a salesman - he wouldn't need to necessarily have both Belief and Empathy, though it's likely that he does have one or the other. Consistency, as described here, isn't really necessary for the salesman , though it would be for the account manager - wh...

Re: Cepheus Engine

Jeff, maybe you haven’t noticed, but I actually have been making my case; you just never bothered to read; that, or maybe you just don’t know your dice distributions. I don't make it a practice to memorize distributions; when I need specifics, I can look them up. Generally, for gaming, I don't need...

Re: Cepheus Engine

I think T20 failed more because it was simply a bad implementation of d20 rules with Traveller - possibly because it came out rather early in the d20 era, before D20 Modern was released, and it was trying to fit D&D-style rules into Traveller when it could have been a lot more original about it (as...

Re: Cepheus Engine

So, yeah, polydice Traveller has been tried. It wasn't the only possibility for polydice, but it was the most likely one to be looked at, and the memory is going to make the old hands a bit leery of anything like it. I have to admit that I doubt that the epic fail of Traveller 20 has much to do wit...

Ok, that does it. Someone's got to take some of the ideas from this thread and write a full-length feature adventure for Freelance Traveller. Press deadline is three days ago, but I'll let it slide if you get it to me by yesterday...
