Re: Missing hull points in Core Rules reprint?

My hardcover doesn't have the hull points. One of the first printings. I'm curious if any prints had them included. I know some of the PDFs had them.

Re: Fundamentals of economics and cost of services

Traveller is not a simulator.
Traveller emulates a setting.

Typo :

Page 3 : The Arcturus Belt (C000364-F)

It should be : The Arcturus Belt (C000364-C)
That's up for debate still.

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

I think were getting away from the OP. "We could tweak the text further too. Now, we are NOT (capital emphasis!) doing a new edition, and we are not going to invalidate any of the supplements and expansions that have come since. But we do have the chance to make some changes and/or additions." The ...

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

Capitalism sucks. Crony capitalism sucks. But that's why people in IRL businesses learn about marketing, and branding, and brand loyalty, and all that seemingly-unutterably boring stuff they don't teach kids in school. Schools need to teach "Get Woke, Go Broke." Traveller is no longer the only SFRP...

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

And thus it is I believe with us grognards - sadly we are indeed dying off one by one and yet our fanaticism is such that we can still sustain a hobby and a subculture that may not be what it once was but has nevertheless still survived everything that the world has thrown at it. Grognards play CT....

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

Traveller has to sell into the future, and not die out with the grognards as younger people dismiss it feeling it hasn't adapted to broad cultural changes and expected social cues. Such people won't buy Traveller. Period. What happens is that existing customers go away. They find another game compa...

It is a nice piece, Shawn. Not sure if you remember, but it’s already appeared in a certain TAS adventure. 😀
It's appeared in a few SFRPGs.

Re: Spaceship Interior Walls

When a pirate boarding party boards a ship, the Traveller material makes reference to swords, stunners, and low power weapons are normally used. Why? What is the Armour Protection Value (APV) of a spaceship's interior walls? Let's say a Type S Scout/Courier I understand the exterior hull of a Type ...

Re: Need clarification on Encumberence 'Physical Actions'

Pg. 92 of MGT2 core book states that once encumbered, you suffer a Bane to 'all physical actions'. While STR, DEX, END are your physical characteristic values, I have no issues with a Bane being applied to a straight up STR,DEX,END roll. My question lies with combat actions that employ a physical c...

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 ...

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

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...
