Re: Pirates of Drinax Patron errata or bad deal?

It could be that the price is for a Jump 1 Jump, paying the basic passage rate instead of freight. Or if the ship is Jump 2 ship it could be a 600 credit increase over a Jump 2 rate. Nothing in the description says that the cargo has to make it in 1 Jump. Jump 5 is tech Level 14 and might not be som...

Re: [Drinax] Where is the Queen?

You could throw in the Heinleinesque contract marriages that last for X amount of time. The Liaden clans universe also has fosterlings and contract marriages. Maybe the mother is simply a political ally for a contracted time and it is the offspring that are important. For darker threads you can have...

TL 5-6 Long range bomber

Is there a TL 5-6 long range bomber in any published material? I am thinking something like a Lancaster or B17, B 29 etc. WW2 long range bomber concept. Has such a beastie been published somewhere?

Tree and Dragon

Has anyone taken a shot at writing up material for bringing in the Liaden culture into the Traveller game? The space opera setting seems well suited for traveller. A Pocket Empire of Liaden worlds and Master Traders setting up trade routes across sectors. Any thoughts on what the Liaden Tree would s...

Re: Drinax Campaign update:

My players named the Harrier "The Aluminum Falcon" My campaign went sideways from the start. Two players are Empire loyalists. The new King has a 12 Soc and is a Baron in the Moot. The Commodore is a decorated veteran with Contacts in Imperial Intelligence. So the group has ties to the Empire throug...

Re: Has the Traveller timeline ever advanced?

they have rewound things back from the canon future history if a civil war and Virus outbreak. (The New Era setting,)

Your campaign has 10 years from 1105 to 1115 before the Empire goes up in flames according to future history.

Drinax Campaign update:

My Drinax campaign is rapidly drawing to a close. We have just finished module 9 and are heading for the finale. My campaign is drifting a fair distance from the modules. My players were never much interested in piracy and subcontracted that out to Darochyn and his fleet. They conentrated on trade r...

Re: What would The Emperor do?

Send him on a trade mission to the Zhodani Consulate, the HIver Federation or the far side of the Vargr expanse. Tell him to stay there at least 5 years, maybe 10. If he returns, accuse him of treason.

Re: What to do

Congratulate the player on his luck and retire the character. The character has no reason to take part in any of the smaller aspects of life, they hire people for that. Have them roll a Merchant character with a share in a Far Trader and a mortage to handle. Unless you like playing Accountants and t...

Re: How to rationalize it?

How to rationalize it? Simple: The ships do not exist. Drinax starts with only 1 damaged Harrrier with a chance to find a couple more damaged/Stripped Harriers later on. Or are you asking if they have the plans and want to build 3 Harriers. That might be possible with Tech World close by. or some ot...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Traffic

Gurps Traveller takes a good stab at this in Far Trader. At 5-10 million credits a year in trade there is about 0-5 tons per day of cargo available, 10-50 a week. There are several pages of charts to go through to develop the Bilateral Trade number between worlds. If you go by the Starport quality a...

Re: Regrowing an arm and other medical advantages

5000 per point of stat damage is a cheap way of getting healthy. That is about 25 000 dollars. (2 credits for a fast food meal, assume burger fries and a drink is $10 makes a credit worth 5 bucks each.) An athlete getting a month of rest for 500 credits and 24 hours in a cryo berth is a good investm...

Regrowing an arm and other medical advantages

Just noticed this in the Core book on page 50 For example, Morn suffers an injury during his career as a barbarian, reducing his STR by 2. He has the limb regrown at a starport hospital, at the cost of Cr10000. He has to pay this entire amount himself – but he has no money. Morn starts the game with...

Things will depend on the tech level of the inhabitants. Is there a functioning high tech society still operating on the Ringworld?

The prisoner is psionic? If so, will that remain a secret or will they be transferred to a psionic control facility, or offered a new job for a shadowy organization.... They are removed from the prison and are sent on much more dangerous missions. Use La Femme Nikita mixed with Alias as inspiration....
