Re: 2 potential errors in Pirates of Drinax

I've never seen this mentioned in any official Traveller materials. Is it a condition of the license or something? MWM's opinion on it seems clear from his novel. (edit: Sure there's a complete new body available at TLs well beyond 15, but a specialised human DNA gender swap should be available at ...

Re: 2 potential errors in Pirates of Drinax

I'The 1st is that on The Floating Palace Life Events Table A roll of A 6 then A 2nd 6 says you discover you are The Bastard Son of King Oleb but its possible for A Female to roll that event. Why? In that case the female is forced to take the gender reassignment DNA modification as Oleb wanted a son.

Is this from a Mongoose product? Or did I copy and paste from another source? Does any of this ring a bell?

Re: Traveller Project Updates

A bit of bad news, I am afraid. Graphics Girl Amy was forced to make the decision to leave us this week, due to ongoing health reasons. She has left a huge hole here at Mongoose, and we wish her the very best in her trials ahead. While you may not be familiar with her, you have most certainly seen ...

Re: Terraforming in a nightmarish way...

Never said building habitats that had the combined size of a planet. That would be rather... large. I just said large habitats. They could be O'Neill cylnders, a regular boring torus, or any other shape. The idea being that it would be easier than to try and move a planet (which even in Traveller t...

The closest game I’ve seen to Traveller is Star Traders: Frontiers, although it’s totally different to Elite
There has also been:

Megatraveller 2: Quest for the Ancients

How do you know the flare was seen? It's the same as a messenger.
Not the same. Not saying it's foolproof but better then sending 100 messengers.

Re: Traveller Companion Shipped

There are 2 generals, jointly besieging an enemy in a valley. Both generals must attack at the same time or they will be defeated piecemeal. The only way they can communicate is to send a messenger through the valley, and this messenger may be intercepted. How then does any general know if his mess...

Re: Ship Combat: The Particle Barbette

The system already is quite forgiving for spaces, as many things are handwaived (lifesupport being one of them). I just figure life support equipment is figured in already, each 1 ton space includes the life support necessary for that space. As for a central location could be useful, what if life s...

Does this mean stealth jump "requires two Advantages" (HG, page 48)? OK, but I've read somewhere in the forum this is not the case anymore.
Who is right, Drinax's Harrier or GSbAG’s Incarnate?
Stealth jump only requires one Advantage. Should have been updated in the book.

Besides, assuming the Harrier has more thrust than its opponent, it can separate out of dog fight range whenever it wants and just blast away.
Side note, not a Harrier.
