Re: Pirates of Drinax: Harrier Commerce Raider

I'm not very happy with the layout of this ship. The lower deck has a huge amount of wasted space, and everything seems very cramped. Hopefully it will get a full rework before it goes to print, otherwise, I'll probably redraw it before I start the campaign.

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

Hi msprange,

There are 2 more days of May left. Is the printed version going to meet the target date?

Re: Starter Kit Book 1 as a separate item?

I'm having difficulty getting anyone to get into the game at all. It's not about my game(s). I find a few people have tentative interest in the idea, but are unwilling to buy a ~$40 book for something they have never tried. I have purchased several hard copies myself, run games with those books and ...

Starter Kit Book 1 as a separate item?

I'm working hard to get new people into the game, but a barrier I'm encountering spending a relatively significant amount on a book to get started. IMO it would do wonders for the game to have a very inexpensive entry into the game by producing separate PDF and printed (softback) version of Book 1 -...

Community created tools for MgT2

I am trying to determine the limits of gaming aids and tooling to stay within the licence, but it's not clear to me. I have built a spreadsheet (really a group of sheets) for use at my (virtual) table that take the place of the paper character sheet since we aren't all in the same room much of the t...

Re: How old are we?

Can you link the other forums / groups that you saw the surveys at? I'd like to check them out and possibly join them. I would really like to work on getting MgT2 a much bigger following and revive the excitement I saw with the original version. I'm going to start by running some intro games at my l...

Re: Star Wars Gozanti-Class Cruiser

I did a rough count of habitable squares for a few official 100t ships and compared that to the best deck plan I can find for this ship, and I'd believe 300t base on that. Not the best method, but should be OK for ballpark estimation.

Re: High & Dry transplanted.

As the crow flies (20 jumps @ J2 / 8 jumps @ J4), you are only moving it about 2 subsectors. The caution about moving things around is echoed. I'd instead suggest you just manufacture an excuse for the party to be in that sector, or after High & Dry, give them an unavoidable hook to go to Sindal if ...

Re: Character Sheet w/ "Skill Buckets"

The groups I play with have mixed preferences for digital vs paper, so I made a character sheet and a builder that can be printed out if desired. I thought about doing different sectioning of skills, but choose the default as alphabetical matched the rest of the documentation. The one issue I find w...

I agree with Life Events being limited. I suggest these be developed into a D66 list.

Re: Max skill ranks

My only revision that I would make on Kaelic's system is that the loss of the APs on fail seems too harsh. I would say the that the Traveller can't make another check until they would earn another AP in that skill. If the AP count is already 3, then it only opens the gate, not bring it to 4.

Re: Earnings during career

One thing that has bothered me is that forced exit of a career always earns nothing for that last benefit term. This feels slightly too harsh. I could see an alternate rule that give only cash but roll is -[1D/2] with a minimum of 1 for the last term.
