What do you think?
The beauty of Mongoose Traveller 2nd edition is the culling of DMs from Task Checks. They should be used sparingly. What does the Vehicle Handbook say about advanced sensor rules that the Core Rulebook suggests using?

I’m actually more interested in some of the little side additions to character generation. An awards and honors system for example
What kind of awards and honors system? How would they be used in a game?

Re: Why no career books?

Careers aren't the same thing as character classes in D&D. Character classes have unique abilities, careers are just packages of skills and equipment, the only career with unique abilities is Psion. Psion career skills are only unique when a Referee doesn't allow Travellers to have them. I have qui...

A career is nothing but a background for determining skills, initial starting funds and equipment, after a character is established, it no longer matters.
Not a role-player, apparently. The career books were far more than just that besides.

Re: How do you generate child characters?

Some guy wrote a book series on genetically modified kids that played pew-pew in war simulators that really weren't war simulators, or some such nonsense.

This is great, except I can't actually generate workable skill stats for characters below 18 years in the rules. The kid is about 13 years, I'm thinking. Any suggestions?
Choose a homeworld to generate a character from. Starting age is 13 +1D4 - 1D4. Don't give them a career or anything. Done.

Re: Converting 5th D&D races to Traveller 2nd Edition

You have an idea of the Drow, what would they be like in a science fiction setting similar to Classic Traveller? D&D is all about killing things and taking their stuff. Traveller is about a whole other thing. The Drow would be treated as aliens, just like how the Darrians are, and given career temp...
