Re: Gun Combat and never missing.

1 - Deepfake videos are already hard to spot, and will only become more difficult in the next couple of decades. TL12 deepfakes would be undetectable, in my opinion. Deepfake videos on SpaceTube won't matter to anyone. See entertainment. TL12 videos will for sure use encryptsync datacloud storage t...

Re: Psion ebook

I'm a huge fan of all the books and supplements for Mongoose Traveller 1st edition. I'm always going through them while world building.

Not to hijack the thread, but is there a timeline for the Psion book and the special powers mentioned on page 197 of the Core book?
I don't understand what you mean by timeline? You mean "This happened, then this happened?"

Re: Psion ebook

It's for Mongoose Traveller 1st Edition. If you know 1st Edition, you can tweak things as needed for use in 2nd Edition.

So this combines to give a +6 to attack rolls. Even on a roll of 2 they still get an 8. This makes combat pretty terrifying for the other side.
What does role-play say about it?

In the (admittedly limited) experience I have had with Traveller so far, the Zhodani are presented as the universal boogeymen.
The players are doing that.
See how they treat the Vargr and Solomani races as well.

Re: Question re Travel Codes

Interesting question. I'm checking both versions of my chargen app to see if I noticed that change. ADDED: I had it as AND for both versions. Otherwise, too many worlds in a subsector are Amber Zones. I think I will edit the code though so that the AI-ish code I now use will decide if a planet is Am...

Got The Glorious Empire hardcover in the mail today. It's a great looking book. Very well made. And matches the quality of my Core book.

Re: PSI - faster than light?

I haven't found anything on this topic, but if have missed something, please point me in the right direction. :) What do you say? Could psionic powers be faster than light? Perhaps PSI "sneaks" somehow through mystical higher dimensions? ;) In regular Traveller settings, this question is not releva...

Mongoose char-gen breaks down somewhat when everyone rolls into old age. Skills get higher than the 2d6 curve is meant to handle.
Wishful thinking.

What TV or movies would you recommend to get inspired for Traveller? Firefly and Star Trek seem obvious. Any others?

Re: Why are Low Passages so deadly?

I am not talking about the in game explanation but more about the reason for the authors to make cryo sleep travelling so deadly. Assuming a regular ship doctor with a +3 to his medic check we are still talking about a death rate of 8-11% (depending on TL). This is ridiculous and how any of this co...
