Who are current 3D ship design artists for Traveller?

Hey, y'all. I want to say that I absolutely love the work that is showing up in current Traveller books. The ships look better than they ever have before. I'm currently working on a book for publication, and I'm wondering if anyone here knows which 3D ship artists are available for commissions? Than...

Re: Traveller Companion Chargen Question

Thank you, Michael and Annatar. That is in line with what I thought, but it is good to get confirmation.

Michael, I really like the book. Chargen is somuch easier. Oh, the new characteristics are all very interesting.

Traveller Companion Chargen Question

Finally broke down and bought the Traveller Companion. Glad that I did. I really like the alternate Chargen methods. One question, though. For the section on Page 21, under the Careers heading of Finalising the Traveller, there are three options. The first two options I get. They offer good mechanic...

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

I'm happy that I got this book. One thing that I do wonder about is that the section with the rumours of Sindal seems to be spread out. Like not all of the rumours are in one spot. I don't have the PDF in front of me now, but like three rumours are in one section, then part of another chapter, then ...

How long does the sale last?

By that I mean this one, on the 2E core rulebook, High Guard, Drinax and several of the smaller supplements. Curious to see how long I've got on it?

Re: A Traveller Miniatures Game?!!

To make it more "Traveller", it would be cool if there was a way to do a brief lifepath for one or two hero units per side. Like they each come with a sheet where you throw down four dice and checkoff results to get random bonuses or starting equipment. Oh, and minis including more than foot soldier...

Re: Cepheus City Generator

Just downloaded it for a look, and the use of "2d6-7" or similar in places struck me as interesting. Do you avoid other dice sizes because they're Traveller/Cepheus are d6-based, do you actually make deliberate use of the 2d6 probability curve, or both? Both, actually. I really, really like the 2d6...

@ Tom, true, the idea is that this I'm going to release a medieval setting. @EldritchFive, It would be awesome for a Stargate game. I'd never thought of that before.

Re: Cepheus City Generator

Yes, it creates cities much the same way that you generate planets. There are new trade codes so you can run a caravan between cities. It also helps to define the local terrain

Re: Cepheus City Generator

I'm currently working on a "subsector" with several cities. It's going to be a sandbox thing, with the option for solo play. Deeper than a Choose Your Own Adventure book, but probably not as freeform as Star Trader.

Re: Cepheus City Generator

Yeah, true. I wrote it with medieval things in mind because it's easier to do that and convert it back to regular Cepheus than it is the other way. All you have to do is change the names and prices on the Trade Goods tables back to the original names and prices in the Cepheus core book, but keep the...

Cepheus City Generator

Here's [url-http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/202 ... ettlements]my latest book[/url], for Cepheus. It takes the planet rules and alters them for making planetside cities. Free, but tips are always welcome.

Re: Running Drinax, any suggestions?

Both very good ideas. What is a "gardener of worlds"? Is it someone who sticks around and does every side quest? I've got the Theev book, is the Torpol Cluster worth it? Since the first adventure sends them there I'd be interested in having more detail at hand. Also, I showed them a map of the Trave...

Drinax supplements

Is there any plan to include the various Drinax supplements in the Drinax book? I only ask because the Aslan High Guard supplement is going into that book. Also, I really hope to see more of them. Are they going to be released in the order of the adventures (how Torpol Cluster and Theev are the firs...
