Re: Psion ebook

Not to hijack the thread, but is there a timeline for the Psion book and the special powers mentioned on page 197 of the Core book?

And regarding powers being tweaked to 2nd edition, has anyone done any conversions of the Advanced Talents from the 1st edition Psion book?

Re: Character Creation Question

At the ten minute mark of the video the character being created goes into law enforcement after going to university (but failing to graduate). The character gets all the Service skills at level 0 since it is their first career. When rolling for the Agent career there is no -1 DM for a previous caree...

Re: Character Creation Question

Yes, University is listed a a pre-career event, so when you get to your career you would get the basic training. The military academy gives you all the service branch skills at level 0, and if you actually enter that branch as your following term you increase 3 of those skills to level 1. Seth Skork...

Shadows of Sindal: Prince Grehai

I've looked and not found it, but does the module have a home base / HQ where Prince Richter Grehai is based? Is his homeworld listed? It's one of the first questions my players asked about him (ie what planet is he a Prince of?) He also moves around with a squadron of ships but does he have a home ...

Re: Orbit to Surface with grav equipment

I'm not sure if mass actually matters. Spaceship functionality is measured in displacement tons, not mass. A ship carrying 100 dtons of lead and a ship carrying 100 dtons of feathers have the same M-Drive and J-Drive stats. So mass is not a factor in performance. Contra grav may work the same way an...

Re: Orbit to Surface with grav equipment

Does weight actually matter anymore with grav equipment? Is all weight considered zero, or 1 gram when contra grav is in operation? Page 130 of the Core book has Anti-grav ignoring atmosphere and Size of a planet. So that seems to go against the local gravity and atmospheric friction issues.

Gun Combat and never missing.

Anyone else run into this? I have a player that has saved their money and purchased some tech upgrades. They have Stat bonus +1 Gun Combat 2: so a +3 to their roll. This is a good base bonus to their combat monkey character. But the tech upgrades add to this. Intelligent weapon: makes the weapon sma...

Re: Drinax’s other worlds

Resource extraction and production facilities is what Drinax needs. The floating palace has a Scholars Tower with a lot of TL 14-15 designs locked away, but no fabrication capability. If the players can get some production plants extracting value from asteroids or moons Drinax could be in a much bet...

Re: Shadows of Sindal Thread (Spoilers)

Which is the Glorious Empire's genetic tampering on the planet Fantasy. 91 percent of the births are female. Reducing the number of males might make the females become more powerful and be able to trade and deal with the outside worlds, without the drive for new territory.

You forgot about getting them spayed or neutered, and after all the times Bob Barker said that.


actually, a bioagent that causes sterility. Tuf Voyaging had that at the end of the book. That would be a good thing to spray on an Aslan planet.
