Are the Zhodani among us now?

So from personal experience I can tell you that at train stations in the UK one of the things banned along with running and Skateboarding is Teleporting.

If you don't believe me see this article.

Or read The Dogs of War and note just how much of the novel is spent on finanace.

Re: Your challenge with character generator software

I based mine on the original LBB as one of the things listed in the "What Can't I do" section of the Traveller Developers Pack is "Publish software based on the current edition of Traveller" although to be honest I think I started writing the code before Mongoose Traveller came out. I used Embedded ...

Re: New 2300AD Adventure - Grendelssaga 1: Rescue Run

I picked this up and when I tried to read it on my android tablet several important pages were blank. However, when reading it on a laptop running Windows 8, the pages were there. Just an FYI for those who are used to using a tablet. On my tablet (ASUS TF300 running 4.2) I get a warning that some f...

Re: Future Traveller - Testing the Waters

As a long time miniatures gamer, I have no trouble getting hold of human figures, it's the Traveller specific aliens that are the problem, this also affects my RPG style as we tend to use miniatures for most encounters. I have a grand total of 4 Aslan (non-female) and 4 Vargr figures. But as my curr...

Re: 2300 AD Errata

Are pensions available in 2300 like in traveller? I have been doing it that unless specifically stated otherwise character generation is straight out of the Traveller rule book and as 2300 does not state that pensions are not available I have been granting pensions. Of course if pensions really wor...
