Re: Traveller 5

I think of T5 as a big book of optional rules for consideration should Mongoose Traveller ever be found wanting.

I just haven't had need of them yet, and probably won't, ever.

Re: Of Mayday and Missiles, a quick fix...

Just to add that if you use the alternative (vector) movement rules from High Guard, then, "Missiles do not make a chained task roll for accuracy, but include the range DM from the time they are fired when making the final attack roll on the turn of impact."

Re: PBP Campaign Opening Available

Ha, yes! Well, there isn't really a short answer to that, but we weren't looking necessarily for a broker-gunner, per se, but somebody with either or both of those skills would have been fine. The character whose slot was being filled was a strong broker who had picked up a little gunnery in the 18 ...

Re: PBP Campaign Opening Available

Regrettably, bobhk disappeared on vacation and appears to be MIA. So currently we are down to four active players, plus GM.

Therefore, if anybody would like to join an active crew of strong, consistent OTU roleplayers, shoot me a PM. :)

Re: Additional attack actions?

So this was a 'home brew' question from the get go of post #1. Personally I took your post as insulting and ad hominem attack upon those who responded to post #1. Not because you used harsh language or were rude (you weren't) but because you had a near ex catheda attitude of speaking for Mongoose. ...

Re: Additional attack actions?

No one here knew that using different rules isn't RAW? Of course they did, what we're distinguishing here is between what additional combat actions are actually within the rules and those which people are just making up. When RAW are stupid or unrealistic you change them. The point of this entire t...

That's seems like it's going to be quite a lot of book keeping. Let us know how you get on.

Re: Standard Missiles - Why Even Bother?

Well, yeah, put simply HG reaction drives won't fit in a missile any more than HG gravitic drives. The smallest reaction drive having a volume of 3.375 metres cubed. Neither type of HG drive is applicable, so something else must propel Traveller missiles. Spaceship rated drives do not fit in missil...

Re: Book 1: Mercenary Second Edition - Now on Drivethru

That sounds good, but it makes me wonder why would I get a second edition Mercenary book now if it is not compatible and the second edition core rules probably won't be here for another 1+ years? Rules and supplements can have different alternate or variant rules in them, while still being compatib...

Re: Additional attack actions?

It seems pretty clear to me a little lower down on pp61 " Attack " that an attack is meant to take a significant action by default . However, I can see you could interpret certain attacks that "do not require the full attention" as only taking a minor action and thus not having to suffer a going fas...

Re: Additional attack actions?

You can, of course, make up any rules you wish about 'snapshots', however, none of what you propose is in the RAW, so they'd just be house rules. :wink:

Re: Standard Missiles - Why Even Bother?

I have also dumped unicorn farts from my game. Regarding missiles again, an alternative route to making them more powerful might be to make them significantly cheaper. I'm considering 10% of the cost for a missile rack and missiles. As a very cheap self defence weapon for merchant vessels they could...

Re: New Mercenary and ships...

???? Our space craft today aren't traveling at hundreds or thousands of kilometers/sec. So why do you want to see what doesn't exist and what isn't relevant to the conversation? I don't think very many Traveller ships routinely travel quite that fast, why wouldn't they be jumping when they travel a...

The evidence I would like to see is an explanation of how present day space craft survive 'tons' of super high velocity micrometeorites.
