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...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - Now on Drivethru!

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. Bummer, the last boarding action we did using the CRB rules was anticlimactic. I was excited when I saw that comment...

High Guard Boarding Action Rules

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. I'm flipping through...

Re: Pirates of Drinax: Ship Encounters

I picked this up and so far am pretty happy with it. One question though. In all of the stats for the ships, there is an entry "MOR:" followed by a number. I don't see what this is supposed to mean. For example: Captain: Ghathtagu ‘Scout Josh’ Azse Hull: 40 MOR: 7 Encounter Distance: 45,000 km (Very...

Re: Apps for Traveller

When starting the app the 1st time and also after any updates, it downloads a ship's boatload of stuff, so I can see why having a slow connection could be a problem. It is relatively slow on my decent broadband connection. Also, it does require a login to use, and annoyingly never remembers the deta...

The Fall of Tinath (part of the Starter Set),

No violence in it just some ship trouble. And if more sessions happen at some point going up against some aliens rather then other humans.
Thanks for the tip. I don't have that one yet, Maybe I'll have to pick it up.

Re: Looking for an Adventure

The one thing Traveller really is missing is a set of quick start rules and mini adventure. Indeed! I am thinking of maybe doing the intro adventure to Mindjammer Traveller. It has pre-gen characters and only requires the MGT Traveller 2 core rulebook. I'm just not quite comfortable with the settin...

Looking for an Adventure

So I have been running a Pirates of Drinax campaign for a while now, and I've talked about it with my D&D group, and they are interested in trying out Traveller. So, in not too long, at one of our scheduled session dates, one of the players can't make it, so the rest of us decided to play traveller....

Re: Combat and Leadership

Shawn, I agree with you 100% on most boons and banes in the game. The boons that result from using leadership in combat, where they can be applied to allies rolls by the player who rolled the leadership check, I think those can carry over, as they are a result of the players check to distribute as t...

Just hope for a better initiative spot in the next round.
So the Boons don't carry over?
I think they do. There's nothing that says they have to be used in that round.
