Re: Mongoose News - Deepnight Revelation Kickstarter Now Live!

Congratulations on reaching the £20,000 starter funding threshold! The project is a go, and it's just a matter of reaching for the stretch goals.

Good luck!

Re: Would their be reprecussions?

If it's within the cop's jurisdiction, priority 1 is completing the assignment. Petty thievery, B&E, are not enough of a priority. The character should call it in and let the precinct handle it. Maybe come back later to make inquiries and submit dashcam footage as they were officer on scene during t...

Holi, And Other Local Cultural Festivals

2019-03-20 and 2019-03-21 are the days of Holi, where celebrants pelt one another with clouds of multicoloured gulal powder. A while back, I was inspired by Holi to write in a local custom called powderpuffing in Castrobancla, the City of Aliens . There's a slight difference - powderpuffing is a ben...

Re: "Nozzles" on the Element cruisers

"Well, the thing's gotta have a tailpipe!" - Lt Uhura, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country I think it's SF expectation. Science fiction shows and movies show the ship's stern end, and if its backside looked like that no wonder it's stern, and then the big pipes at the back would glow whatever col...

Type L Lab Ship - Where's The Bridge?

I'm looking at the Lab Ship in the Traveller Core Rulebook, and I'm wondering where the bridge is. Or is the ship controlled from the pinnace?

Re: How to run a siege ?

Which would be the most challenging - the players as besiegers, looking to scheme and connive their way into the fortification like dogs? Or the players stuck in the middle of the siege, rooting out spies, saboteurs and enemies scaling the walls, defending the wells and food reserves from those same...

Core Rulebook Upgrade

Just a headsup - if you have the Second Edition Core Rulebook in PDF from DTRPG, it's just been updated. You'll have to check it out in your My Library page. The file should be called Traveller_Core_eBook_FEB18.pdf and you'll find a black and white printer-friendly version called Traveller_Core_Rule...

News About Marc W Miller, Traveller Creator (pbuh)

A few weeks back, Marc W Miller faced a personal crisis. Some tests over the summer indicated that he required urgent cardiac surgery. He was not suffering any symptoms, but it was an urgent decision he had to make, and he went in to have his surgery. I just received news that he is out of surgery a...

Very strange. I try to download the Traveller Core Ebook PDF and it instead wants to download the errata file.
That's not the errata file. That's the whole book.

Re: Supplement 14: Space Stations - Now on Drivethru!

This was Mongoose's first foray into space station territory. Second Edition High Guard has refined on this somewhat, and more: it has established that space station design is as important as ship design in the core rules for Second Edition Traveller . As for the feel of what life is like on a stati...
