Re: What is "canon" these days?

I for my part ignore alot of the stuff in traveller books and still play the game very enthusiastically. Most of the traveller core elements (like space maps, space travel, psi etc.) I use without problem. But there are a couple of elements which are not to my liking, like the -unwieldly amount of p...

Adventure: Deepnight Endeavour

Maybe I am blind but I could not find any data about the measurements of the ship. How many meters is it long or wide? Eg. Page 5 is a very nice graphic about it but no dimensioning in meter.

Re: State of the Mongoose 2018

Because its the core setting I would find it good to have an Imperium book for reference. As it is now there is almost no info about it for new players. Or at least you could make a smaller book (maybe with 80 pages) with articles covering the most important things a new traveller player should kno...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2018

Will there be a book about the Third Imperium as a whole? Or only sectorbooks? I remember I read some plans about a Third Imperium sourcebook in the NuTrav core rulebook.

Re: Idea for a new supplement: Science and Engineering

Yep. there is of course alot of unobtainium in such a supplement. Its unavoidable in a scifi setting. :) I think it does not matter if we in 2019 dont know how exactly a meson gun works. Scifi good authors always found ways to describe some inherent plausible details how the techs of their stories a...

Idea for a new supplement: Science and Engineering

Recently I had an idea for a traveller supplement which was has been afaik never released. The topic is science and engineering. We have alien modules, equipment catalogues, space ship manuals and alot of other stuff, which is released in each new edition. But there was never a supplement which is s...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2018

Regarding the Alien Modules, I would wish for a kind of material which helps a gamemaster to portray them more easily to the players. For example when players visit an outpost of the kkree what impressions do they have. What kind of electronics to kkree have, what is the smell there and which exotic...

Re: Vehicle Handbook: question about Hull=HP

does anyone know when the companion is released? thanks for any info. Hi enpeze2, Yes, you have understood it correctly. It does mean that a good kick can put a dune buggy out of action :) The newly released Traveller Companion (p. 104) has a couple of options for getting around that kind of unreali...

Re: Vehicle Handbook: question about Hull=HP

thank you very much for the info. Its quite dangerous to be a dune buggy or a WW2 fighter in nu traveller, it seems. :) Jokes aside, I think this problem is quite easy to adress by just give such vehicles more hull. (for example the dune buggy instead of 3 you could give it 15 or so) Maybe the solut...

Vehicle Handbook: question about Hull=HP

after reading the new vehicle handbook I would like to ask if I understand this correctly? A dune buggy (TL6) has only 4 HP (hull 4) and armor 2. So any hit with a weapon causing 6+ damage will put it out of action? Or a vanguard fighter (page 78) has hull 5 and 9 armor, so any hit wit 14+ damage wi...
