Re: [Traveller Art]Kinunir Strike!

and the comment was specifically about the illustration My comment that started this discussion was no criticism of the illustration. It’s great art. In my head as I wrote it, the ship’s captain was yelling this at the gunnery officer. Or maybe the gunnery officer yelling at the gunners. Definitely...

Char Gen House Rules

I’m about to start a short micro-campaign with some new players. I got to thinking, many games like D&D have house rules for char gen, like roll 4d6 keep beat, etc What do you do for Traveller? I’m thinking of having the players roll 7x 2d6 and keep the best for their stats, and allowing one re-roll...

My players in the pirate characters prevented both Theev and Drinax from being pummeled by the Imperium as the Pirate Planet, and solidified their place and the #1 pirate gang in the Reaches, after freeing a lot of pirates, even some of the big names, from the prison camp.

Very intruguing. I look forward to seeing the rest of the trilogy. If the PCs in my drinax campaign ever make it out that way, I may just see if this can be worked in.

Thanks for posting. I haven't had a chance to read it in depth, but from what I skimmed, it looks great. I hope you'll publish the rest of the trilogy as well!

Re: Using technology from Mindjammer in 3I

I have the mindjammer Traveller book and I do like it. Well before I saw it, I had been toying with an idea similar to the mindscaoe and similar tech in my Traveller 3I campaign.

That said, I haven't had the chance to really work anything out, but I'd like to hear anyone's ideas as well.

Re: Pirates of Drinax: The Cordan Conflict

This is interesting. My players have already meddled in Cordan, assassinating one of Lux's opponents in one of the least subtle and messy ways possible. They decided to bug out and finish the job later. I wonder if this will work for the 2nd half of the job, or is my in-game reality too far removed ...

Re: Pirates of Drinax 2nd Ed: Typos, Errors, Bugs, Gremlins, Etc.

Actually, it requires one that was supposed to have been updated. Crap - I didn't realise there was an errata... I've been working from the physical book - is there an errata list somewhere? Yeah, where can we get the errata? I'm not seeing one listed for either the CRB or a high Guard on the Mongo...

Do any of the published books contain more information than in Book 2 concerning the surface of Drinax, such as a map, more data on the Vespexers, etc? I threw a one-off encounter at them down there that has led them to believe a foreign power is deliberately supplying raiders and causing chaos dow...

Re: Character creation - am I doing it right?

Two things.

In term 4, you still get a skill roll even though you had a mishap. (Technically the skill roll comes before the survival roll)

Also, if I'm remembering correctly (away from books right now...) you would need to do an aging roll after the 4th term.

Re: [Drinax] Arming up the Borderland subsector

The first part of the Pirates of Drinax campaign doesn't make sense if Torpol has a couple of battle cruisers. No way would a pirate gang with a few 100-200 ton ships raid the place.... So, are there other "Pirates of Drinax" supplements from Mongoose that you can't use with the "Pirates of Drinax"...

Re: Pirates of Drinax, print options

There is a print-friendly version of the CRB, which I really like. So there is precedent.

I'd like to see the other books with a print-friendly option too.

To me its more if a speedy PDF scrolling option....

Re: High Guard Boarding Action Rules

Every reference I can see refers to the table in the main rulebook, or simply refers to using deck plans as the basis for personal combat. Ok, so it's not just me. It isn't in there.

IN the CRB on p.163, there is the statement: High Guard includes detailed rules for conducting boarding actions on the Personal scale, allowing you to play through a blow-by-blow scenario that sees the Travellers taking over an enemy ship or desperately trying to repel boarders.
