Re: Stuff on my Uber-Races Diplomats

So first, you've won the game.
Then you've uber-won the game.

What's next? Where does a Traveller player go for ever-more winnings?

Re: Spaceship armor: rhyme and/or reason?

Why is there a choice to have armor or not when building ships?

Re: Help me find what I need

Aren't your Travellers all gazillionaires? Why would they need charts for, other than to get more lucky rich/richer/richest?

Re: TravellerMap.com as a really GOOD resource

Now you have me curious! How does one get as high as a pop F in T5!!! (after consulting the page you referred to...) Ah... If the first roll for Pop was a 12 on 2d6 - roll again, this time with 2d6+3 and take that result instead. Not sure I like it, but hey, rules are rules right? ;) I have: If it'...

You could always write your own take on things, instead of searching for some common ground between all the various publishers.

Pick just one edition of Traveller rules to use. Don't use the 2007 FORD service manual if your FORD was made in 2013.

Are there updated Vargr and Aslan stats in 2e? I’ve not had time to look yet.
The Alien Module books from 1st edition work great with 2nd edition, and have a lot more detail about the alien races and how to generate them. Be sure to get those if you want to role-play them as your Travellers.

Re: Third Imperium Supplements in MongTrav2e

Hi guys, Quick question: how compatible are the 1e Third Imperium supplements with 2e? I notice they are mostly still on sale, so that implies they are not obsolete. Am I right to assume that all the setting material and system stats are transferable? Thoughts appreciated. 1st edition setting mater...

I ran across this in Kickstarter - https://www.mapforge-software.com/overview/. Has anyone used it for planetary mapping, or other forms of mapping? It's apparently got a lot of map packs to choose from.
I use Bryce and Vue for my planets.

Re: Characteristics of Zero?

You can have physical characteristics or INT drop to zero due to combat damage, aging, and other effects. But could you have EDU or SOC scores of zero? In T5, synthetics (think replicants) have these characteristics set at zero. Before you start a game, find out from your players how they want to h...
