Re: What is the salary for crew filling two position?

Hi Condottiere, Let's assume in Five Kay, that the military issues certification that can accurately rate your skill set, and potential employers can make offers that reflect that and their own needs. Barbarians and Belters might not have access to such certification. In the book the main character ...

Re: What is the salary for crew filling two position?

Hello all,

Michael Z. Williamson has a series set in the Freehold of Grianne. In Book 1 Freehold military personnel receive a 5% increase in pay for each secondary skill they have.

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

Hi Condottiere, I can only answer questions 2 and 3 of the poll. The Steyr Aug is better than the AR-15/M-16/M4 carbine looking and no I'm not Australian. For me to agree which weapon is better I would have to perform the tests under the same exact conditions to be able come to the same conclusion a...

Re: What is the salary for crew filling two position?

Hello FreeTrav, What are the two positions (and ship) in question? It'll depend a lot on the circumstances. In the particular case asked about (I'm the original querent from the TML), one position was made up, the other varied - there was one pilot-plus, one engineer-plus, one gunner-plus, and three...

What is the salary for crew filling two position?

Hello all, On the TML a question was asked about the salary for a crew member filling two positions in MgT 2e. So far my efforts have not found an answer. Can someone please point me to the book and page the information is found on? In CT LBB 2 1977/1981 p. 16 I did find this bit of information "......

Re: Turret questions

Hello Condottiere, It's over simplified, and no one appears to think it's worth the effort to try and explain it. I think that it is worth the effort to explain how a turret that consumes 1 ton of internal volume is able to house one to three (four using the quad option) weapons, hold 1 ton of missi...

Re: Turret questions

Hello phavoc Anything space designed to store something is a hold. Of course a hold can be and is often designed to store specific material. A missile magazine is a hold designed to store and hopefully contain the pressures generated when they warhead or other component explodes. I do agree that Tra...

Re: Turret questions

A magazine isn't just a hold, which all of the versions essentially reference. A magazine is a very specific dedicated space designed to add additional protection for exp...

Re: Turret questions

Hello phovac The missile rules have always been a bit... odd and not aligned with reality. In a warship missiles should be stored in the magazine, which is armored against damage and designed to explode outwards if hit so that it doesn't destroy or heavily damage the ship in case it is hit. Travelle...

Re: Turret questions

Hello AnotherDilbert The one tonne turret is a legacy fixture; ... Originally turrets took no space at all (inside the hull), but required 1 Dt fire control equipment per turret (LBB2, p15). Despite taking no space at all, they still had space for weapons, ammunition, and a gunner. CT LBB 2 1977/198...

Re: Turret questions

Hi Ursus Maior, I agree that's rules at written, but this is where I have to go with Rule 0 and invoke a bit of common sense. Since there is no Bag of Holding in Traveller, nor is a turret a Tardis, I have to assume you can only stuff so much in it. I accept that the turret itself extends beyond the...

Re: JTAS 3 & the LSP Modular Cutter modules

Hello NOLTrav, Thanks again. I suspect the JTAS article has more - and more imaginative - modules than I presented in my quick pass. For a quick pass I think that you hit the mark without knowing that Mongoose had already addressed the issue. Yes, the article includes the following modules: Starport...

JTAS 3 & the LSP Modular Cutter modules

Hello all, In the Modular Cutter: What do modules cost Reynard identified a new source for the Modular Cutter found on MgT HG 2e pp. 102-103/PDF 103-104. After reading the article my opinion is that NOLATrav was on the right track on how to build modules. MgT JTAS 3 pp. 87-96 revised the costs and c...

Hello phavoc, "CT Adventure 7: Broadsword p19 specifies that a standard ATV is included, not that it necessarily means anything in MgT." JTAS 5 1980 LSP Modular Cutter excludes the ATV from the modules cost. JTAS 8 1981 Broadsword Class Mercenary Cruiser includes the ATV cost. CT Adventure 7: Broads...

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hello AnotherDilbert, The CT 50-ton Modular Cutter removed a 30-ton or 20-ton section out of the hull to cargo some type of cargo. Yes, I consider the passengers, gunners, weapons, fuel, etc. to be cargo. They may be payload, but "cargo" and "cargo hold" has a specific meaning in Traveller. Space al...

Hi AnotherDilbert, Hopefully third time is the charm in completing a reply. The rules as written are for the installation of fuel and cargo space within a single hull that has a cost in MgT HG 2e of Cr 50,000.

Re: Modular Cutter: What do modules cost?

Hello Ursus Maior, Or just say the cost is negligible: Budgeted in MegaCredits. Ship component costs are expressed in MegaCredits (and sometimes decimal fractions). Costs below MCr0.01 (about KCr10 or Cr10,000) are inconsequential and can be ignored. For example, a Maneuver Drive may cost MCr10 and ...
