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...

Re: Fuel costs--jumps vs. weeks of operation

Under Fuel Tank for a ship the main book gives you a total amount of fuel, and a number of weeks of operation that that fuel provides. Is that the number of weeks of operation assuming you don't use the jump drive in that time, and then you recalculate accordingly when you jump? That's weeks of ope...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

And yes, AndrewW is correct, I did write The Glorious Empire . I hope you all enjoy it when it comes out. Old School was a proofreader on the project (and inspired dozens of additional ideas during its development), so if anything is wrong with it, we can blame him. So we can't enjoy it before it c...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

3) Christopher Griffen did Reach Adventure 6: Exodus , and I cannot wait to incorporate it into my PoD campaign. I hope, he's the one writing the Glorious Empire sourcebook due in autumn. He has also done a TAS adventure on the GlEm, but I have not read it yet. I wonder, if it contains any GlEm shi...

Don’t know about the core rulebook ships as much, but the high guard ships are riddled with dozens of errors.

AD’s link in the post above is the best effort I’ve seen at correcting them.
The Core Rulebook ships are also in High Guard and thus corrected there.

Re: no FTL communications seems a bit gamey

Rumors of such tech might make for a wonderful MacGuffin for an mystery/espionage-focused Traveller campaign. With a discovery at some point that the tech never existed (a con or a false-flag op), that the proposed tech cannot work (gross misinterpretation, misinformation, or a seriously deluded pr...

Re: Behind the Claw - Now in Stock!

Now, the thing that does concern me are the UK shipments. Most of you received your copies within just a couple of days, but all those who have reported non-arrivals in the UK all just happened to be in the same mail sack when it left our building - which kinda suggests someone has 'lost' the entir...

Re: NASA SpaceX Launch

Thanks. A little bit of a bummer. We scrapped the boat plan, because we would have had to drive the boat through thunderstorms to get to the viewing area. So we watched the launch from the dock about twenty miles away. Close enough to hear it, though. It was already out of sight before the sound re...

Not to brag, but if Saturday’s launch is a go, I’ll be watching from a boat a few miles from the launch pad. Very excited!

More curious to know if Mongoose still plans to fix the poor quality of the PDF of said poster.
The sector maps where completely redone so should be in the plans.

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Well, except that it was a one-of-a-kind ship class. Honestly, the holographic hull I find not very impressive. The Harrier is a stealth attack craft that can change it's visual appearance, which I find about as re-painting a F-22 Raptor by pushing a button in mid-air. Either the sensors of your pr...

Re: MgT2E Fuel Expenditure when making a jump.

High Guard page: 17 wrote:10% of the total tonnage of the ship, multiplied by the maximum jump score of the drive

The result of this is the number of tons that needs to be dedicated to jump fuel.

There's less political capital involved if drones are shot down, than if the aircraft have human crews.

On the physical level, the aircraft are lighter if they don't need to accommodate for human crews, and more acrobatic.
Also smaller.
