Drinax: The Game of Sun and Shadow, Naval Character Creation

I'm looking at running The Game of Sun and Shadow next. It requires the PCs to make Naval or Marine characters with the normal rules. My general issue, by the nature of the Traveller Character Creation system, a single roll could have someone thrown out of the career, rendering all their work up to ...

Combat Arm - Overpowered?

One of my players has a top TL combat Arm. It give +6 armour and Strength 18. After making it immune to emp, invisible to sensors and very difficult to spot with the naked eye, the cost is under 400k. I didn't mind it at first, as his lifepath story had involved losing an arm. This seem to compare p...

Drinax - pirate fleet

I can't find the reference, but I remember reading, if you hire a crew for a second ship, the subservient pirate pays 10% of their haul to you.

Is there any suggestions how to calculate how much the ship actually makes?

Thanks

Dodging

One of my players has brought this up. Under Dodging, Pg 72 CRB, dodging inflicts a negative DM equal to DEX DM or Athletic (dexterity), whichever is higher. To me this implies that it's the higher flat number. He pointed out that the skills athletics allows you to add it's rating to your Dex. So if...

Augments

One of my players wants to get several augments. The current situation would allow for 1 healing period after installation while using the slow drug. Can he get multiple augments installed at once and just heal once? Couldn't find anything in the rules for or against.

Sensors Vs Superior Stealth

Just started running Drinax. On their first try at piracy, they came upon a Far Trader. It was during that that I realised, their superior stealth was giving the total of -9 (-6 standard and -3 for TL difference), which the meant it was impossible for the Far Tarder to ever spot them. I tried to fin...

Re: Starting Drinax Advice

Thanks guys, some solid advice there. I do have one question, and maybe I've just missed the answer or haven't come across it. The book mentions crews of pirate ships getting shares. I'm familiar with this concept. However, it states the PCs get 2 shares each and the captain 5. Is the captain suppos...

Starting Drinax Advice

I'm just about to start running Pirates of Drinax. I was wondering if people had any general advice. I suppose I'm mostly looking for what pitfalls to avoid.

Thanks

Re: Is there a comprehensive 2nd ed Errata?

Took me a while to to write all this up. On second reading, plenty are definitely pedantic, and I'm 90% sure on a lot of them, but I like being sure. I appreciate an help anyone can provide. I'm sure some are just rules I can't find or have misinterpreted. 1. Pg 15. Events, Roll of 11. If you are dr...

Is there a comprehensive 2nd ed Errata?

I took notes while reading the 2nd ed rule book, and I have over 40 items that I'd like clarification on. I was hoping that the errata is all in one place, and I can tick most of them off, instead of typing them all up. Does such an errata exist? I haven't been able to find any. Any help would be ap...

Character creation question

Just a quick question on character creation using core rule book only.

If I role a combat implant benefit, can I take an intelligence augmentation?

The reason this can up in my game is because the intellegence augmentation doesnt use the word "characteristic" in its description

Re: Doomed Crew?

Thanks everyone for all the input. Just to let you guys know what happened. I allowed them to have a very limited amount of fuel, enough to power life support for a few additional weeks and let them divide the power between them and their frozen friends. I then rolled 15 weeks of encounters. They di...

Re: Doomed Crew?

It's one they designed. 400 tons, took a lot of nice bits and bobs, their mortgage is about 1 million a month if that helps gauge. 50 tons allocated to cargo if memory serves (they keep the details of the ship)

Re: Doomed Crew?

Thanks for all the replies. I was shocked to get more than one :-). Just the few things I didn't make clear. The no fuel is from 3rd fuel hit.... Fuel tank destroyed. I agree with the ideas o of batteries and fuel in the pipes, and I'll using them. Never even thought of the drinking water (though I'...

Doomed Crew?

Hi, I was hoping to get some input ona game I'm currently running. Some bits just opinions, others rules I either can't find (just using traveller core) or don't have. Quick background to the current situation. My players ship was under attack. Two sensor and two fuel hits. They're desperate so they...
