Re: Free Epic Campaign - The Pirates of Drinax

I looked at this and no matter the container's size, once it is unsecured, and gravity turned off in the CG-bay (If looting one presumes the Pirates have control of the vessel), the loaded dton mass becomes a moot issue, so the time factor is the key issue here. Having been the Unit Movement Officer...

Re: Jump Gates - Your Thoughts

I admit, my interest stems from having a Player-character with a 30dton Ship's Boat as his inheritance, and working his passage across the stars as a passenger and freight ferryman, and "working a system" until he had passage or opportunity to move with his vessel along the subsector's trade routes....

Re: Jump Gates - Your Thoughts

Thank you verymuch Mr. Chase! I very much like the idea of the Double JG's (paired, and x2 the parsecs) especially. Keeping the Jump time OTU length (6days +/- 12hours) as a constant seems fair enough. I would ask how much (yes the crunchy details) do they (the system owners of the Jump Gate(s) )cha...

Re: Jump Gates - Your Thoughts

IMTU jump gates are simply used to create a bubble for ships without them needing to use their own fuel or jump engines. In all other respects they follow the Traveller rules. Only one jump gate is needed for a one way trip. Fascinating! So, does YTU's JG's have the multi-parsec capability (e;g. Ju...

Re: Jump Gates - Your Thoughts

Traveller TNE's Fusion, Fire & Steel by GDW covers the creation of ATU Jump gates fairly plausibly, beginning with TL10+ (Jump-1 gates) through TL-16 (Jump-6 gates with early anti-matter power sources), their sizes (for the smount of tonnage travelling through in a single discharge/ jump transit) &...

Re: Best Mongoose Traveller Product

Zhodani & Darrians--why? Cultures and conflicts are essential elements of story telling--the crunchy bits about gizmo's & ships, & such etcetera etcetera do not tell a story as much as they are window dressing to RPG's.

Re: Spinward Encounters

I think this is one of the best books in the Mongoose Traveller collection! Plenty of idea and adventures to modify or use as is. When I referee, I like to have the options depending on how much time I have. Additionally, it fits so well with the Spinward Marches book while expanding on it. Mr. Var...

Thanks for the quick fix! Gorgeous!

Of course, looking at the far-intermediate boundary to spinwards...I wonder if (Daibei Sector) the Spinward frontier will be next? :idea: :?: 8)

Re: [Spica Publishing] Outer Veil released!

A Great Near-Earth setting that cuts new ground, and is closer to a certain line of aforementioned SF films of early Human Interstellar expansion. Excellent job, to both authors, & Spica Publishing for having the stones to publish it.
