Re: Fuel Bladders

That is exactly right. You just transfer the water to the fuel tanks using a hose from the fuel bladders while you are in j-space. Once you come out of jump, take a star fix, plot your next jump charge the capacitors in the jump drive and away you go. Be aware of the fact that are skipping a maintin...

Re: Fuel Bladders

most of the "Jump Fuel" is used to begin the jump process (punch a hole between n-space and j-space). The rest is used to maintain the jump field for the week you are in jump. The fuel must be available for rapid use. Fuel Bladders are by definition; temporary storage devices. They can not be filled...

In GURPS Traveller a shipboard sickbay at TL 10 requires 1 dton and includes an operating table, a diagnostic table and two automeds (re- placing hospital beds) for a cost of 160,000 Credits. Compared to this, Golan's design seems far more plausible to me. :) That sounds like a small space for all ...

That would be good thing for the players. All they need is to scrounge up (beg, borrow, steal) the actual weapons.

Re: Arming your Scout Type S Ship

A scout ship's primary purpose is to get you from point A to point B via space! A scout ship is not really a combatant. Nor is it likely to be a pirate target, so armament is really not neccessary (except maybe to threaten civilians ;) ). If they absolutely must have a weapon - a single mount and m...

I've always wondered why noone ever made a 200-ton version of the Type-S, and called it an expanded courier. This is my opinion, too. Besides, wouldn't most non-Seeker scouts be armed for self defense? Actually, Scouts and Assassins by Paranoia Press had a 150t extended Scout based on the Serpent C...

Sick Bays, Med Labs, ect

1. In CT, sick bays were installed in ships. Are they no longer required in MGT, or are they possibly included in the stateroom misc. cost and space requirements? If not, what is the space / cost to install a sick bay on a ship, and what advantages would it provide per TL? My house-rules: Standard ...

The ship shares issue really needs clarification, as without that we can't really tell whether the trade rules work proper like. While 1% seems more likely given the explanatory text both there and under the 'old ships' section, 1% per ship share seems a piffling amount for PC's. A handful of ship ...

It also really cuts down on the number of ships covered. Ships small enough or compact enough (at larger sizes) to cover in just a few pages is one thing, but twelve pages for one ship (the Sylea in MGT HG) that I'm going to have to re-draw anyway to be useful for a shoot-out near the sick-bay* is ...

your answer last time was not satisfactory. No one else commented before, so, I thought I would try again, since it came up during character generation this past weekend.

Scoundrel Errors

We were generating our characters and discovered that the Forgery Skill is not listed on any of the tables in Scoundrel. The Forgery Skill is only described in the book.

I was gererating a scout character and mustered out and received the benefit "Research Equipment". I have not been able to find any description of what Research Equipment is.

Just got my copy and I do not see how one acquires the Forgery Skill. I do not see it on any of the tables.
