Re: Need some help with houseruling some things

To a point Book 3: Scout has a system generation method. It generates the number of orbits around a Star and works to place Mainworld and Gas Giants... beyond that it's pretty easy to fill in the blanks by jsut generating a few planets and ignoring things like the Starport class and the like. :) Oh...

Re: Need some help with houseruling some things

So i rejiggered the ship into a 500 ton hull, which makes the design make a little more sense, and made one or two other small changes. One thing about mongoose traveller that irks me is that there is no system in the game for generating solar systems, just system mainworlds. I looked into traveller...

Re: Need some help with houseruling some things

That looks like a pretty good ship design. There are a few adjustments needed and I have a couple suggestions as well. I don't know what tech level the ship is but if it is at least TL 10 I would recommend using Crystaliron armor instead of Titanium Steel. It would cost MCr. 4.8 more but free up 30...

Re: Need some help with houseruling some things

I'm thinking of keeping the whole thing pretty abstract, Just so that we don't have to deal with the ins and outs of working out the Dietary needs of the crew, but just so we can know how much we have when and if it becomes important (if the crew spend a long period of time where they cant get resup...

Need some help with houseruling some things

So I bought traveller to my play group the other day, and said I wanted to run *something* that wasnt another high fantasy romp through DnD. And they agreed. After some discussion, my group agreed that they'd like to do something like voyager or lost in space. However, I couldn't really find rules f...

Re: Survival in traveller

I think, in part that this is due to the fact that survival stories strike a chord in people. I used to on books focused on characters being stripped of home comforts and being forced to adapt to a new situation. I'm currently participating in a DND based survival campaign, but I get the feeling tha...

Survival in traveller

I have been wanting to run a campaign in traveller for a while now, and have finally gotten a chance to. The first part of the campaign as I have it planned is a survival/escape story. In this game, a recent civil was has just ended, and the act of setting up a new democratic government has been und...
