Re: Do you allow psionics?

In 2nd edition the authors really need to look at the Suggestion power (assuming the roll of 12+ is made) can result in Puppet master events. You have to have a real maxed out Psion to pull off the power though. So that is a bit of balance. That was one I sent to Matt. They modified it a little for...

Re: Do you allow psionics?

The thing I don't get about why people think Psionics is overpowered or unbalancing in a game is that if your Psi Points are average - a 7, you're not doing a lot in a long drawn-out encounter. With Telepathy, you can't even use Assault with a score of 7. If you use the Evolutionary Modifiers from T...

Re: Starter Kit Book 1 as a separate item?

What's needed is quick-start rules and pre-gen characters.

Re: Fantasy Races repackaged for Traveller

There are a number of Minor Human Races already in Traveller that could stand in for D&D races. Darrians are usually considered the Elves of Traveller, Geonee or Suerrat could be Dwarves, Luriani are Mermen, etc...

Re: Star Wars 7 A Force Awakens or A New Set of Armour...

Just wondering if anyone caught the new trailer and wondered about the chrome trooper? By that I mean is that a suit of Reflec Armour they're wearing? I am assuming its resistant to energy weapons including laser swords or the Star Wars equivalent... and I couldn't help thinking... Cylons or Travel...

Re: What Do You Want People To Know About Traveller?

The majority of people equate psionics with science rather than fantasy which is about various forms of magic. D&D, for whatever reason, dragged psionics into there game as an alternative to magic rather than another form of magic. Even in any version of D&D, psionics is not very popular. I don't u...

Formidable Task Difficulty

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but there's no way to get Exceptional Success on a Formidable task with a single skill and attribute modifier, under the Traveller rules. Skill-5 is the cap, right? Example: Pilot-5 Dex 15 (+3 DM) Even if I roll a 12, I'm still only getting a total of 18. If I then su...
