Re: Core Rulebook 2nd Ed - Text clarification

I think the intent is that the contact should have an enhanced level, in one or more skills that are connected to his profession or speciality. I understand the intent. It specifically refers to levels and the table on p88 being Level 1 and Level 2, while the Average skill level goes up to 3. It's ...

I guess you didn't read the section in the book. I'm not really sure how to reply to you, because what you said doesn't relate in any way to my question or the section in the book. Sorry if I was too terse. "Each character will have one skill from the list at the first level, and all other skills a...

Re: Core Rulebook 2nd Ed - Text clarification

I read that as an non-player character creation process, and the suggestion how to make them balanced in relation to the player characters. Yes, I am asking a question relating to creating non-player characters and the text in this section. This is why I am looking for writer clarification because ...

Admin 1 is level 1 of skill Admin. That is the general terminology.

Core Rulebook 2nd Ed - Text clarification

On page 86 of the 2nd Ed core book under Experience Levels it says: "Each character will have one skill from the list at the first level, and all other skills at the second level." First level? Second level? What "levels" are these referring to? I suspect it's trying to convey the allocation of skil...

Hang on, if you pre-order the hard copy, you get he PDF straight away? You don't have to wait for the hardcopy to deliver first?

Re: [Playtest Focus] Final Update?

It's more that they're multiple files, and was hoping msprange could just slap up the PDF. I guess I'll have to merge them and export to PDF like you suggest. Multiple PDF's can be useful to reference multiple chapters, just pull up whatever part you need. For some, but it's not what I want. I pref...

Re: [Playtest Focus] Final Update?

Can we get it in a single PDF format? I keep a lot of my RPG books on my tablet, and the separate docs stops me from keeping it on the go, which is where I do most of my reading. Otherwise I need to sit at my desk. Hopefully it's not just me :) Not sure how comfortable you are with I.T. but I use L...

Re: Have authors of GURPS Traveller Far Trader write next M.

You should ignore Shawn, you're making good points. Shawn just replies to threads with insane nonsense about refereeing, and seems to think no suggestions should go into any of the books ever.

He's offering a suggestion that should be written into the rules, I think you got lost again and forgot this was the Playtest section.

Re: Post Career Education/Training - End of October draft

So far my players have found roll failures to be really frustrating for advancement. Even if the numbers work out, it's pretty counter to fun. A stacking bonus on this until they eventually do pass is a good middle ground.

Feels like a good time to repost this, as the board's training crusader... I personally am going to test this approach with my players and I feel it strikes a really good balance.

Re: Tachyon Anything

In terms of settings I don't dispute the fact that a referee can make a decision that removes a certain piece of technology. I was not disputing your opinion or stance. I was noting that your post made it seem like you may have been taking a very narrow look at what the original poster was actually...

Re: Manoeuvre Drives

I just meant how it could work as a fluff explanation. I'm not sure you can reconcile this easily in game design because the numbers are trying to sit within reasonable values of each other. Sorry for the confusion of my response!
