Re: A New Edition of Traveller

Here's hoping that this project bodes well for Prime Directive: Traveller's long-term prospects.

RPE, FASA Games, and Noble Armada

Some of you may be aware that FASA Games (the company which arose out of the ashes of RedBrick LLC) is currently working on launching their own version of Noble Armada . Recently, Ral Partha Europe announced that they will be handling the NA minia9tures line from now on - though it is as yet unclear...

Re: Discuss the State of the Mongoose 2014

Thank you for posting this year's update! I'm excited to see what lies in store for the ADB-Mongoose joint venture in 2015 - not least in terms of how things might line up for Traveller: Prime Directive . Once the core book and the three current faction sourcebooks (for the Federation, the Klingons,...

Re: A question for the ACTA Community

Ah - I was actually talking about ACTA:B5 here, not SF! I'm sure most people on these boards are aware that ACTA:SF is alive and well; I just don't play it as a personal preference. Oh, sorry - I was referring more to the opening post, which I read as assuming that Mongoose had brought ACtA:SF to a...

Re: A question for the ACTA Community

While A Call to Arms: Star Fleet has had its primary development shifted over to ADB, the game is by no means dead. The heavily revised "version 1.2" rulebook is being primed for release, which should lay the groundwork for the game's future expansion efforts to get back up and running again. That s...

Re: Fire in the Deep: an unofficial Juggernaut Empire discus

While I may have highlighted the Andromedan connection to Captain's Log #49 in the Andro thread , I should note that this issue also includes a preview of Juggernaut Alpha , which may be of interest to anyone looking to see how its unique technologies may work in an ACtA:SF context. To clarify, this...

Re: Will there be another Call to Arms?

Sad to read that ACTA is going to end. While Mongoose's in-house development of A Call to Arms may be on hiatus, ACtA overall is not done with by any means. ADB are currently readying "version 1.2" of A Call to Arms: Star Fleet for publication, listing a series of changes to the original version in...

Re: Magic and Sci-Fi

One example of the use of "indistinguishable from magic" and "actual magic-magic" in the same setting (or, at least, where the lines between the two can be somewhat blurred) could be the Fading Suns universe, as had been portrayed until relatively recently by Mongoose over in A Call to Arms: Noble A...

Re: [ACTASF] Starline 2500 is expanding!

There are three modular DN designs for the Romulans in SFB Module R7 , though none of them are yet in FC so far as I'm aware. The DemonHawk would have had three engines (each of which doubles in size relative to those on the SparrowHawk). Its modularity would have come from a pair of SparrowHawk mod...

Re: SFU Query: Gunnery deck on the Federation battlecruiser

As it turns out, Captain's Log #48 has a new battlecruiser variant for SFB , the Ranger -class BSC, which uses the "gun deck" to place a pair of special sensors. The idea behind the BSC was that the ship could use its sensors to locate hidden Andromedan Rapid Transit nodes and attack them by itself,...

Re: Prime Directive...

Re: Prime Directive...

Commander Loskene appeared on the viewscreen in The Tholian Web , but you could only see so much of his/her/its form there. The crystal-arachnid form used for In a Mirror, Darkly was one possible extrapolation of what else comprised the Tholian phenotype. The SFU's "Pillar" Tholian as detailed in A...

Re: Prime Directive...

As I mentioned further up the thread, there are numerous "strains" of Tholians in the Star Fleet Universe. But the dominant "Pillar" strain has no legs, and possesses a limited means of hovering above the ground instead. Actually, if you want to see a preview of how the Tholians would be detailed in...

Re: Prime Directive...

It's worth bearing in mind that the SFU has its own "past" (prior to a certain "five-year mission") as well as a separate "future". Not counting the differences in what happened during that time period (which in the SFU timeline ran from Y154 to Y159, though the incident at Talos IV happened in Y142...

Re: AAR 7.3.14 Federation vs Klingons

What is it with Klingons always wanting to keep a safe distance in this game. Aren’t they supposed to be the aggressive ones?
