Re: Opposed Checks – Need help with rule interpretation

Two Travellers fighting each other, standing high up over a vat of acid. They both fall from the beam they are perched on, because they both got crit-fail rolls, etc. One Traveller's arm lands in the acid, burning it. The Traveller with the lower Effect belly flops, and is completely submerged in th...

Re: Opposed Checks – Need help with rule interpretation

Failure vs failure Character A rolls 5 / effect -3 (failure) Character B rolls 4 / effect -4 (failure) They both failed their tasks. But one is scraping the bottom of the barrel first, sort of thing. I would need to know what the situation was (some context), and what tasks that each was trying, to...

Re: Droyne Sport

It's interesting that they know about the Droyne, but not know how to generate such a character. There must be a reason why they want to role-play that race. What books are they reading?

Or is your plan to make a pre-gen of a Droyne to give out to a player?

Re: Radiation damage on a large ship.

According to High Guard, large ships' crews suffer a degradation in performance for every 10% of their hull points they lose to radiation weapons (if unshielded). This is quite tidy for handling large crews abstractly. The question here is: how would you handle radiation damage to an individual cre...

This is awesome; a New Improved AHL! Don't forget to add VTT compatible deck-plans.. Oh.. And miniatures as well! :D
This Amara-Class ship is old. Ha! Almost 40 years old. The AHL is a different animal.

Re: Rulebook reprint

There was a number missing for each ship in the January 2016 PDF. Later PDFs have that number included on the ship charts now. I don't know what that number was (hull number?). I don't have the PDF. Just the 1st printing of the hardcover, which is missing the number.

Re: New Zozer Games SF setting - Hostile - Gritty, near'ish future

If you need CE to play Hostile, then why is Hostile being posted on a Traveller forum? CE is a different game, and is not Traveller. In fact, it's anti-Traveller. And anti-Mongoose.

Is this usable with Mongoose Traveller 2e? I don't know how much Cepheus engine differs.
If you have Traveller already, you don't need Cepheus Engine.

Re: Combat damage effects and charactiscs DM

Hello, there is another question I have concerning the New Traveller combat rules this time. If a Traveller‘s or opponent‘s characteristics are reduced due to applicable damages, does this have an effect on the current DMs of the attributes as well. Example: Dexterity falls from 11 to 5 - does the ...
