Re: Colonization history of the Third Imperium

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

Startopia is a much better game. Also not Traveller.

Re: Surgery question

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...

Re: How to run it?

Traveller's system is not a story-teller system. You'll need to use a story-teller system for your game, and attach a super chunky meta-plot to it. Not sure what you would need players for exactly. It maybe best to just write a book and give copies to your friends to read.

Re: More Free Trader

One of the Star Trek movies had strobes on ships. Kind of cool.

In the future, I'm sure all ships will be self-driving. No one would be allowed to pilot anything.

I was just guessing where to put a green light on the thing. For all I know it means it's ok to dock on that side. Or was ok, up until the fire showed up.
