Re: Aslan, Samurai and other allegories

I'm going to assume the original concept was a highly patriarchal pride of lions where the women folk did most of the work, which you probably could extend to a clan. From that you could overlay anything from Sengoku era Japan to the Scottish Highlands. https://img00.deviantart.net/65c5/i/2009/287/9...

Re: What skills fit the pay?

In some parts of the world and (I'm thinking of an example I heard from Mexico), you go to a dive you know where these types hang out, and they know you, and a hit on an easily accessible target is two hundred bucks.

Re: Sensors Vs Superior Stealth

Basically, you want the original author(s)/designer(s) to demonstrate how it's meant to function.

Before you figure out how to exploit it legally.

Re: Shipping in the OTU is cheap!

It's the game mechanics.

Speaking of which, I know I've massaged the design process to get relatively dirt cheap jerry rigged merchantmen.

As regards to arms trafficking, if you the original formulas in Classic for bulk purchases, they're almost as cheap as chips.

Re: Sensors Vs Superior Stealth

In regard to lifters, I think the basic idea was to cancel the effects of local gravitation. But logically, if the result is a net positive, it should operate like planetary vehicles' gravitational motors; not accounting for atmospheric resistance, hull configuration, and annoyed home owners, you co...

Why we need all-new space suits to survive Mars

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6yyjmcfp_U

Not all space suits are created equal! Verge space reporter Loren Grush tries on a prototype suit that’s custom-made for survival on the Moon, and a totally different model for Mars. It isn’t easy.

Re: Sensors Vs Superior Stealth

I mentioned something similar in regard to the ship design sequence.

I think it was implied that the third edition will probably have them.

Re: Heavy Fighter Computer

Maybe more efficient and elegant programmes to squeeze in tighter capacities?

Space for computing is virtual; in theory, if the overriding factor is rate of fire, detection and bridge size, heavy fighters can range in tonnage from thirty five tonnes to fifty.

Re: Inhabited Gas Giants

Assuming there's some economic value in it to colonize the moons.

Floating cities would have the advantage that they could move out of the way of maybe a meteor strike, or the dark side of the moon when a solar flare is predicted.
