Re: Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

So... In your storied opinions, how accessible do you think Traveller is for visually impaired and blind people to play? My style of role-play for Traveller is each person says where their character is, and what their character is doing. Before a player does anything else, that is what they say. So...

Re: Solar Panels for refining fuel

If there's fusion in the game setting, there is also solar panels that work probably. See hand-waving.

Re: Suggestions

I still get emails from Africa about my uncle dying in a horrific car accident that he unfortunately was never able to survive. I am very rich now. And I'm almost out of uncles. Down to just a few left.

Re: Suggested Fees

Just make the character. Worry about the cost later.

Re: Dodging

DM equal to DEX DM or Athletic (dexterity), whichever is higher. Simple. Use the value that is higher. Your Traveller's DEX DM, or your Traveller's Athletic (dexterity) skill. The number gets subtracted from the attacker's die roll. Remember... Your Traveller is not doing a Task Check. Your Travell...

Re: What does ObTrav mean?

That's not a thing on that site. Just a 404 page. Obsolete Traveller might be a thing by now though. Obligatory Traveller reference wants to be a thing.

It's a setting thing.

I say Hiver with a short "i". Like river. Depends on the generation ship your ancestors were from, I guess.

Re: Beta critique: Element: travele4.pdf: Concentric Attack

What's the point of calling it a concentric attack if it's failing? Mongoose Traveller is not a war game. It's written with role-players in mind.

Re: Arguments for & against point-buy chargen

I generated a bunch of characters for a short-run game, and I used the written rules, except that I rolled a skill die and then chose the category. I fudged a few of the life incident rolls too, where the results would have been boring (repeats of the same number, where I couldn't think of distinct...

And have you wondered how it could be run as as actual game?
The Traveller system works with any setting. So Lost in Space wouldn't be any different.
