Re: Vacc suits for free?

Yeah, I mentioned TL8 suits upthread early on but really, TL10 suits are a no-brainer. TL12 if I’m feeling generous :P

Thanks for making me think about this. Changing it for MTU, cheers!

Re: Gun Combat and never missing.

1 - Deepfake videos are already hard to spot, and will only become more difficult in the next couple of decades. TL12 deepfakes would be undetectable, in my opinion. Deepfake videos on SpaceTube won't matter to anyone. See entertainment. TL12 videos will for sure use encryptsync datacloud storage t...

Re: Searching an asteroid belt

Let them do Investigate/Admin/Streetwise checks in nearby systems to find as up-to-date navigational info on the belt as possible, as well as more info on the shipyard. Let them work the nearest Scout base for the same info, and rumors. Naval bases may have similar info/rumors if they are so incline...

Re: Gas giant depths?

T5 goes into quite some detail regarding gas giant atmospheres, far as I know that’s the most developed info out there for Traveller.

Perhaps you could just define a demarcation as ‘sea level’? I’d go with ‘Deep’ being 1 Atm pressure. Not sure how to develop temperature info tho.

Re: Vacc suits for free?

They could be included in the Ship’s Locker, maybe one TL8 Vacc Suit per required crew position, along with a rescue bubble for each stateroom.

Re: Security Systems, Crime Prevention, and Traveller

Back in the Classic days there was a supplement called Forms & Charts that had a selection of ID cards. Just basic character sheets really but might be a good place to start.

Re: 2300AD UCP question

I do not know the 2300 system at all but I’m pretty sure the Population Multiplier is the same as in previous versions of Traveller: The straight UWP/UPP Pop digit is an exponent, the number of zeroes in the count. The Pop Multiplier is the number the exponent is appended to. Thus Kingsland (Pop 5, ...

Also ratchet up the abilities of the foes. Better armor, better weapons. Better skills - give him a taste of his own medicine.

Re: High Guard Update - Comments Needed!

In my game I expanded the term Events table to D66 and added those mission assignments back in, along with appropriate skills and opportunities for medals. For all the careers actually. Also added a few choices in the skill tables so Medic and Engineer aren’t so devilishly hard to come by. Oh, and y...

Re: Stealth and fusion plant exhaust

How quickly does all the waste heat dissipate into background noise once it’s exhausted out of the nozzles? If you play RAW many sensor packages have a -DM imposed on basic tasks. DM-4 for Civilian sensors can be hard to overcome. Stealth hulls are simply tech that can defeat a couple components of ...

Freakin' awesome, as always.

Have to say tho, I kind of expected a new cover to illustrate the actual High Guard maneuver... you know, a few shuttles skimming down in the gas giant atmosphere while that beautiful beastie in the foreground watches over them...

Still, great work!
