Re: How did the K'kree ever survive?

K'kree knocked the supports out from under their world's life cycles. Think what is happening because of the loss of bees on Terra. Kirur should be a ecological train wreck. Every world they invaded should be just as bad. If at the very 'best', some plants and animals will survive but Kirur should ...

Re: Resident Zhodani expert?

The Empress Wave is considered optional by some players. Just as Psionics is. But still, the Empress Wave is kind of a big deal.

Re: 4+ Years on, how is the underlying math of MGT2E holding up? (especially in the Starship and Vehicle construction ru

Every time I try to figure out T5, my migraines get worse. I'm sure it would eventually make sense - with a computer. maybe. But T5 would require inhuman patience to learn. There needs to be compromises, and for the most part, Mongoose manages this where T5 aims for a purist level of complexity com...

Same stellar feedback as usual Driscoll. I see now why you're ignored on so many of the other forums I frequent.

I hear ya, but I'll also say if yer not going to care about the math being solid, why even bother with a vehicle/starship design system. I mean what's the point of it if the math doesn't work?
If you know what math it needs, just fix it yourself.

Re: Sword Worlds - ebook & Pre-Order

So far my only criticism is that the book lacks a "Creating Sword World Travellers" blurb, such as the Darrian entry in Behind the Claw. What is provided is pretty cool and I will definitely use, I just think a one page summary of Core careers and their Swordie equivalents would have been nice. I'l...

I see, thanks. Aside from it’s historical value, is the book good? Worth a read?
The book's story is much better than its historical value.

Re: Sword Worlds - ebook & Pre-Order

I haven’t read through the entire book yet, and I’m unfamiliar with Star Viking so I can’t really help there (yet), but from what I’ve seen so far the new book places less emphasis on sword-toting techno-barbarians. The Space Viking novel is where The Sword Worlds come from. The novel put Feudal Te...

Re: Sword Worlds - ebook & Pre-Order

What's the feel of the rules, compared to previous writings? GURPS-like? MgT1-like? Is it closer to Traveller (Space Viking novel) or closer to Star Wars (rebels against the Empire)? Is there chargen?

Re: Higher tech items on a lower tech world

Just a question for the hivemind. In your traveller games do you have government groups equipped with higher tech items? Imagine a TL 5 world that is close to a higher tech world. I could see the military from the TL 5 world heading off to the higher tech world to buy high tech body armour to prote...
