Re: Ship path visualization

When I was running Drinax last, I started to use a spreadsheet: columns for ships, NPCs, and/or groups and lines for weeks. I just rounded up time spent fueling, shopping, repairs, etc., in terms of weeks. We suspended the campaign before could really develop it, but that's my thinking of how to man...

Re: Drinax Campaign update:

Very cool! I love how they took it off the rails, I'm looking forward to finding out how my group might do, once I restart the campaign.

Re: What's to stop them?

Sounds like a LOT of paperwork is involved. And Lawyers, lots of lawyers. And family members who may be further down the list of heirs, but may still have a legal say in what happens to the family property. THEY will surely get lawyers. All of that will take time, more time, and money. Probably not ...

[Drinax] Harrier ship parts and which books?

I have the early edition of Pirates of Drinax, the 1st edition Core RB, and the newest booklet on the Harrier. I see some things in the ship's description that I cannot find references to; what books should I be looking for? In short, where can I find the rules for: Accurate, High Yield weaponry, St...

Re: Pirates of Drinax: Game of Sun & Shadow

I'm working off of the 1st edition. I ran adventures 1, 2, 5, and 3 (in that order) almost 4 years ago :shock: I'm currently kicking around the idea of restarting the game, with the players as the Navy PCs. I think I can make it either a short campaign, or weave it back into the overall storyline. A...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

I ran the first adventure shortly after the PDFs began appearing, then I started the campaign with a different group. I don't remember how the first fights went, other than the PCs won. It was my first time with Traveller rules, and we probably botched a lot of things. I still don't own High Guard, ...

Re: Starting Drinax Advice

Be ready if the players want to split up after they get more than one ship. Have lots of NPCs ready, in case they hire some crew for new ships. Definitely run a calendar, this could take years to play out. I started keeping a page for each system with stuff I'd need to know: cargoes available, 1-2 r...

Re: Pirates of Drinax Kickstarter?

Since I am currently running the PoD campaign here are the types of extras that I find myself looking for and would gladly back a Kickstarter to get.... Maps: Planetary, Starport, or City maps for key places in the campaign. Places such as the Floating Palace of Drinax and Theev would be great plac...

Re: Pirates of Drinax: Spoilers: Advice on Treasure of Sinda

I made up some number of time, people, and credits to get the base running again. I believe they spent a fair amount of time recruiting on Theev to get a base crew in place to make "Star Base One" and the 2 Harriers operational. They made sure to make the 3 Harriers all look/seem identical, so they ...

Re: Recruiting in Drinax Campaign

I used some of the recruiting rules from Mercenary to work up a number of potential recruits per world. I rolled to see what kind of specialty they might have, and their skill level. I ended up writing a page for each system they've visited, or are likely to visit, with cargoes available, recruits a...

[Pirates of Drinax] Splitting the Party?

I wonder if other groups playing this have split up their PCs? My current game of this is on hiatus, and I was thinking about this while reading Part Eight. My group did split up for a while, but that seemed to put the game on hold or fast-forward, with them out of contact for about a year in game t...

Re: Drinax - get me ships!

Mine have been nearly ignoring the quests/missions on the other planets, as well as not hunting on the Prey table, so they're only at the 3 Harriers from book 5. I've been running the books out of order, so now they are in episode 3, and have talked to as many other pirates as they could. They've us...

Re: Free Epic Campaign - The Pirates of Drinax

A) seems true, but I figure there's got to be one band with only a few ships that they can take. B) is something they haven't thought about. C) they weren't planning on letting word get back, if possible, or at least not revealing their Drinax ties before they had some successes under their belt. OR...

Also - am aside - my group is just unwilling to do any sort or actual piracy for some reason. I'm putting the money crunch pressure on. I've dropped contacts info about good loot. I don't want to force them into it but they aren't gaining the resources to build contacts and bribes so much. I'm open...

Re: Free Epic Campaign - The Pirates of Drinax

My group got into this in our first session this weekend, and they are already heading off the rails-- Fun!

Can anyone recommend some information on what the slavers of Oghma might have for ships? That's going to be their first target.

Re: Intelligent weapon, now I'm lost?

Thanks for the effort, folks.
