Re: 13Mann's Robot book

13Mann is going to produce more and more own adventures for Traveller - and we will also translate them one by one for the english-speaking Traveller players.

Re: Spinward Encounters

I cannot speak to what you're seeing, as the nearest FLGS doesn't keep Mongoose Traveller on the shelves (near LRAFB) however, from the sounds of things Mssr Trantor, I would suspect you are applying for an editor/ layout job yourself. Perhaps you should let Mssr Sprange & associates here know of y...

Spinward Encounters

Just bought the new Mongoose design "low"light: Spinward Encounters. Incredible bad layout - again. I hoped you learned from the Crowded Hours disaster. But no: A workbook for "don't do this in your layout" - I fear not a single possible layout error is missing. Guess which numbers are normally on t...

oops - sorry, no offense meant.

I guess I took "Besides, this threat has no teeth, the book is already out. There's nothing Matt can do." out of context AND used the wrong part of the lines to quote.

...There's nothing Matt can do. You'll either be satisfied with it and continue to buy stuff, or you'll not like it and stop - done deal. That's not right - of course there is a lot that can be done. If we buy our next Traveller book, it can have a decent layout (I don't expect award winning stuff,...

Due to other posts, I should clarify my critics. I do NOT think that the scenarios in the book are bad or not worth buying them. I am sure they are good and well entertaining stories. But: the layout quality (this is 2010, not 1980!), the horrible illustration (is there more than one?) and the lowre...

Crowded Hours

These days I bought Crowded Hours. I bought it without opening it, Traveller is imo the worst designed (concerning the layout, not the rules) rpg I buy, so I didn't expect much. But Crowded Hours topped all other books - I don't think that I bought a rpg with SUCH a boring layout since the dawn of a...

If you happen to speak german, try the german translation of GURPS Conan - they corrrected and added a lot of the Conan Background by the aid of a Conan "specialist" :-) GURPS Conan is for GURPS 3 - GURPS is a very good and logic system, we played GURPS Conan for some time and it worked quite good. ...

I can't answer for MGRQ but all percentage systems are not the same in that respect, Call of Cthulhu and Stormbringer (both BRP variants) allow you to start much higher than 50%. Stormbringer in particular recommends that you start with a main weapon skill in excess of 100%. Not only do different d...
