Re: Armageddon 2089: Standing Together

As I'm something of a Luddite when it comes to books - are there plans for a real book version? nice to know I'm not the only one. LBH Oh I prefer printed matter as well. Yeah, I'm out too. I don't see the point in buying the right to 'buy" the right to view the book, and not the actual book itself...

Re: State of the Mongoose

If he spent half as much time writing the State of the Mongoose as he did responding to every little thing online and mucking up Star trek, it'd be done already.

Re: Starship Troopers quick start rules

I think they PDfed quick start rules for Battlefield: Evolution, but that might not have done a BFE for SST evolution. There might be a PDF still out there somewhere with the rules, but I doubt it would be on drivethrough RPg as it is not a product mongoose support any more through lack of license....

Re: Armageddon 2089- why are only some PDFs available?

Sadness, I has it! Anything a fan could offer to do to help bring them back, I wonder? Type up manuscripts, scan in pages of hardcopies? The books are still fairly cheap on amazon...

Armageddon: 2089 - does anybody actually *play* this game? Is it playable, as written? I went into Armageddon 2089 with great faith.

Re: [CONAN] d20 Rules for Running a Shop? A Village?

Oh, also: The ancient module Keep on the Borderlands has a keep on a hill that's essentially its own city-state. The players live there when they are not dungeon basing the Caves of Chaos. The module is considered a classic, if you ignore certain elements of nitpicky realism. Saltmarsh is in DMGII, ...

Re: Comment on the State of the Mongoose

Some comments from a former Starship Troopers fan. Interesting to see that most RPG fans have gone the online route. I have online pdfs and other than the joy of having such a stupendous quantity of material at my figertips, I rarely read them. I always go for the printed book route. I just ordered ...

Just ordered a copy of Armageddon 2089: Total War from Mongoose Publishing and The Psychic's Handbook from another company, both for d20 Modern/d20 Future. Truth be told, I ordered the book used since an online store had it for only seven bucks. Mongoose Publishing bills this game as "the most detai...

Re: SST Reboot

So, just to bring it up gain, does Mongoose still have the rights to make the game? I kind of assume that they last. I figured they only had contacted it for so many years and when it ran out they just didn't renew. I've asked Matt about re-purposing some of the Bug molds, and the answer was they n...

Re: Some simple SST questions

Awesome, thanks - I don't have the arachnid book. Worth it to buy it at $5-8 each?

When you say take a few units of Blasters and Hoppers, how many guys are in the squad?

Is the blaster really that much better at taking out MI?
