Re: Imperial Law and Governance

Construction companies, probably under Imperial supervision, could use nuclear detonation charges for approved projects where there aren't any viable alternatives. Nukes for demolition I can see, not sure I would want them for mining - uncontrolled debris + melting of the ore + radiation effects. D...

Re: Imperial Law and Governance

Re star mercs and allowed weapons. Two things will drive what ships and weapons starmercs will have - economics will typical drive them towards small escorts for convoy and plant protection work, also the cost of building, maintaining and paying the crew of a cruiser size warship is just too much fo...

Re: Imperial Law and Governance

As for ship weapons, customs agents and the starport authorities will pay more attention if yor vessel is armed. They expect civilian vessels can be armed and more so on the frontier but they are expecting turret mounted weapons - lasers, HE missiles, sand and maybe a plasma or fusion gun. They will...

Re: Imperial Law and Governance

The Third imperium is still an empire, even thought it leaves its worlds to do pretty much as they want. All worlds have to give land to the Imperium to house the imperial starport as well as any naval or scout bases. All space outside 100D of the main world or its colonies is Imperial territory, al...

Re: Battle tenders

There is a small picture in the old classic traveller Supplement 8 Library Data A-M. Its basically a small bridge / quarters module at the front end of a long spine, with an engineering module with all the drives and power plant. The rest of the ship is a dispersed structure of beams holding battle ...

Re: Lore question- 4FW/Zhodani/Ine Givar

The Ine Givar are an organisation fighting against what they perceive to be the unjust system of imperial nobles / govt. They are perceived as terrorists by the 3I. They do take lots of funding from the zhos - as the zhos have a democratic form of govt and they have the cash to give to such groups. ...

Re: govermental views on psionics

Yes, 2 of the original psionic insitutes were not closed down and moved under the Imperial Navy. One in the marches, and one on Terra on the solomanii rim. The solomani have the same potential for psionics as Imperials, but they are far away from the best source of psionic info i.e. the zho's and th...

Re: Deneb Sector and Solomani Rim Now Available

Manchester is lucky with 3 game shops of varying quality, and I would like to keep it that way so I try to buy paper copies from them - also I still tend to find it easier to read a book than a computer screen.

Come on mongoose, get these books printed and sent out to the local game stores

Re: Deneb Sector and Solomani Rim Now Available

Apparently mongoose have not done a print run for general distribution to game stores at the moment. They say they will getting a print run done soon but no dates. At the moment if you want a copy its either the PDF version or a hardcopy on direct mail order from mongoose. Less than ideal and bad fo...

Re: Deneb Sector & Solomani Rim Release date?

Since they haven't done a print run for distribution yet, I imagine it will be a month or two from when Mongoose decide to commission the print run. You can probably get a hardcopy mail order direct from mongoose but that doesn't keep your local game store in business. Its also disappeared from the ...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] GM seeking help (Spoilers)

If the gazelle loses contact with the gig, they will not allow it to dock - there will be password exchanges etc. Grabbing the gig is not easy matter. I would expect the boarding party to require all personnel of the ship to muster in a common room - not possible in this case due to the jamming so t...

Deneb Sector & Solomani Rim Release date?

Any idea when these will be in local UK games shops. Release schedule says August but still no sign on esdevium.

They have been out as PDFs for ages.

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] GM seeking help (Spoilers)

The gazelle would never dock with the harrier. The harrier is an obviously armed vessel and has difficultly passing as anything else. The gazelle is equipped with a gig, the boarding party would use that for any inspections, with the harrier under the guns of the gazelle. The gazelle's boarding part...
