I’ve played in and GMed with parties of mixed power levels. I find it suboptimal. YMMV.
There are better gaming groups out there.

All good points, Linwood. It can be done. It does, however, take a lot of work to not make the other players feel like sidekicks. And running a good campaign is hard enough as it is. Drastically uneven characters is an unnecessary risk in a campaign.
Again with the hyperbole.

Re: New Adventure Start: Flatlined

One of several reasons that no one plays RAW. You’re right that its not fair to take the great stats away from the player, but if you’re starting a campaign with that character and three other average travellers, you’ve put yourself behind the eight ball right from the beginning. That traveller wil...

Re: New Adventure Start: Flatlined

Hand of God play will upset some players. With adventure modules, Referees should ask players if the splash page intro sounds interesting enough to start a game from.

Re: 1st Edtion books on DriveThru

They would be almost identical. But the POD books from DriveThru use lighter ink. So the black ink text is not black, but dark gray. The book cover art is not as bright as the original book covers were.

Re: 1st Edtion books on DriveThru

I recommend getting the Alien Module books if they are POD for sure. Then the green-titled books.

Re: Does a term at academy count as a term for mustering out?

On page 44 of the Starter Rules book 1(probably the same page in the CRB) it states "A Traveller gets one Benefit roll for every full term served in that career." But what if a character goes to a military academy first and then progresses into the corresponding career? The keyword you're looking f...

Re: Split from GT

Universe differences aside, I’ve found several of their supplements useful in my MGT2 campaign. Particularly Far Trader (for economics of interstellar trade) and the one on starports. But I like the core rules and general flow of gameplay of MGT2 much more than GT. Yes. All of the Traveller GURPS s...

Re: Crew requirement figures (High Guard rules vs. designs)

I've noticed, however that the rules for the crew requirements (page 21 of High Guard) don't correspond exactly to some of the existing designs in the back of the book. I think it's a case of "rules as written" vs. "rules as intended" but I'd be interested to see if this has already been noticed an...
