Re: Meson Gun Bays

Generally, the stuff in the High Technology chapter is stuff that isn't canon for the T5 version of the Third Imperium setting.

Re: Transfer of cargo in space

So which is correct? What can a cargo hatch in the Core book do with 10% of its cargo at any one time? Is that 10% unloaded on the ground at once? So a ship with 60 tons of cargo space can only load up to 6 ton cargo modules? Or is the 10% the amount that can be transferred out in space through an ...

That's just a Zhodani disinformation campaign, it has already started but they want the Imperials to believe it hasn't as part of their plot to take over their minds.

Hypothetical situation

Suppose a member world of the Third Imperium had an elected planetary president. Near the end of his term there is another election, after trying to discredit the election every way he can, the victory is awarded to another. He refuses to accept the results and leave office. The planetary government...

Re: JTAS sensor rules

We know from the 2e core rulebook that you can reduce this by powering down non-essential systems, like "the chicken soup dispenser on deck C", and this halves power requirements (that seems a bit high, but good for playability). Is this as far as we want to go with this? What about lighting? Proba...

Re: Question about Stunners

I consider the ion weapon more of a homage to Empire Strikes Back than an OTU sort of thing. Don't know where the Tachyon Cannon came from but that's another issue... High Guard is meant as a toolkit, not everything will fit into the OTU. Yes, some stuff was added to use for different universes, so...

Re: Another passage type--slow drugs

I’ve never bought into the idea that people would ever travel in low berths as written in anything but the most dire circumstances, given the risks involved. It’s never really mattered in any of my campaigns, but I’ve gone with the idea that the low berth revival is a routine check (6+ rather than ...

Re: Does the Scout come with weapons?

It is my understanding that a jump drive needs to be powered for the entire week it is operating. Batteries cannot do that unless you have the power plant capacity to keep recharging them in which case the batteries are redundant. But the M-drive, sensors and weapons are not used in jump space so t...

Re: Does the Scout come with weapons?

It says it comes with a 1-ton double turret, but it doesn't specify what kind of weapon they are or list a power requirement for them. I see people using the term "hard points" which I have not seen in the core book. I'm assuming they go into that in in High Guard. The Type S Scout Courier comes wi...
