Re: [GK Games] News and Reviews

That really is a good picture! When will we hear more about the new book it's going into? Also, with the new version of Traveller wrapping up, do you have a timeline in mind for updating your existing GKG material?

Re: Clement Sector Player's Guide Query

I read that each system and area of empty space has 1-5 Zimm points depending on the expected traffic. I did not see anything listing where these system Zimm points were located in the subsector books. Where would I find this information, or should I just assume they are approximately 100 diameters ...

Pre-Career Events

If you take a Pre-Career Education path and roll an 11 for your Event: "War comes and a wide-ranging draft is instigated. You can either flee and join the Drifter career next term or be drafted (roll 1D: 1-3 Army, 4-5 Marine, 6 Navy). Either way, you do not graduate this term. However, if you roll S...

Questions on the Psion Career

If you roll an event (such as 2 while at University) that allows you to test your PSI and attempt to enter the Psion career, does the current term count against you on the Psionic Strength roll? The rulebook (pg.204) states: "To determine a Traveller’s PSI, roll 2D and subtract the number of terms s...

Re: Advanced Degrees (University for a Second Time, or Schol

Firefly had a highly educated doctor. It sounds like he's trying to work out how to simulate the schooling and degree necessary for this type of character using the new rules. Personally, I like where you are going with this. I don't know that Matt plans to change up the education system much, but n...

Re: [GK Games] News and Reviews

Do you have a release schedule somewhere? I saw on Facebook you are working on Ships of Clement Sector 10: Lee Class Merchant Ship. I didn't notice anything about it on your website though. Would love to see what else you have in the pipeline.

Re: [GK Games] News and Reviews

Hi John, I like how you added information on who settled which planets in your Introduction pdf. Is that a fairly definitive list and assumes the others systems were settled through internal sector expansion and not by national colonization? If so, I noticed I did not see some current major powers l...

Re: Navy Event Roll Question

We've been talking about it in another thread as well. Some, myself included, see it as a chance to make two promotions in the same year. A rare achievement, but plausible from a game perspective. I haven't seen an official ruling on it yet. Yes, I believe it was CaptainOrs who raised the question ...

Re: Connections

Most Traveller games have lots of players joking around. I don't think it's meant to be done like a study hall with the principal in the room. I'm not sure I understand where you are going with this. It sounds like some sort of dig at either the rules as written or my question, but I really don't u...

Re: Question about commission and increasing skills

Re: #3 - Since the rules say you get to roll on the skill tables for a promotion, I don't think it matters if you roll it or get it through an event. ALSO, if you succeed in your promotion roll AND get promoted in an event, you get TWO promotions and TWO skill rolls. (My interpretation based on RAW...

Re: Connections

Hmm..., I never cosidered they may be joking. The connections section in the rules indicates rolling up characters together term by term for this purpose: "If two players agree, then any event rolled for one Traveller can involve another. Only one Traveller needs to have rolled the specific event, t...

Doing them post creation would certainly fix the issue, and was the only way I thought it would work when I read the first edition rules. I have read people specifically touting how great the connection rules are during the creation process though, more fun etc. That's where it just doesn't seem lik...
