Re: MgT2 skill-level philosophy ???

I have a question about the MgT2 skill levels. It's made clear in the Core Rules that the designers expected characters with low skill levels (quote... average Joe's). However, this flies in the face of the typical skill rolls described in the rules. For example... - Performing a Systems Check on B...

What percentage of sessions have combat? For us, not counted but I guess low single digits.
They have about as much combat as any horror film has in it.

Re: Give Traveller Stuff to a none Traveller Race

Maybe some day I will return to it, but random generation is difficult to sell. I get out pre-gens for new players to pick from when showing the game mechanics during a one-shot. Players tend to ask me later about making a character of their own for a next game. At that point, they are excited abou...

Re: How would you rate this deal?

Switch out your medication. Check their expiration dates. And floss often.

I never think of them as rewards.

I cannot find this situation covered in CT or Mongoose,
They are very rare to have even one of them. But they do pass through each other just fine. Don't let them touch any ships though.

Re: Traveller and ion storms

Ion storms in Star Trek are typically magnetic storms that interrupt power and can allow access to alternate dimensions and universes. Mirror, Mirror is a more famous example.

I'd say that Grandfather could have used Ion Storms for his own purposes.

Re: Is genetic material universal?

Cool. Thanks for the replies. I can’t see that The Solomani Hypothesis answers the question though. Is DNA universal? Does every organism across known space use DNA/RNA as genetic material, or are there different ways of coding inheritable traits? This is what I immediately thought when I read the ...

The weapon hits a guy behind a 4ft-thick lead wall, but ignores a naked guy standing in front of it?
