Re: Does it make sense?

No. I believe it's already been stated. But first point, you can't make a Pirates of Drinax computer game (Without licenses, collaboration, talent, etc.) Even as a purely hypothetical exercise it's meaningless, you don't know who the fourth in command of the Starguard is. You don't have detailed com...

Re: Would The GeDeCo agree?

GeDeCo doesn't own Sperle. They are the majority economic controllers, but they can't "sell" the planet. Sperle produces chemicals from the "whales" not food. (Though I suppose the planet would make a better breadbasket than Drinax. But not as good as Asim) The "whales" on Sperle aren't whales, they...

How do you know its definitely female, I thought the name Sal could be male in some cultures and female in some cultures
The write up in Trojan Reach says so. (Though if you wanted to change it, no harm, no foul I suppose)

Re: Who is Sal Dancet?

She has a little write up in the NPC section in the Drinax section at the start of the Trojan Reach book. She's essentially an NPC Traveller. Smuggler, free trader, information/commodity broker. She has her own Far Trader IMC, and I've used her to deliver messages a few times further out from Drinax...

Re: Do the Imperium know about Theev?

The first adventure in the actual Drinax book, Honour Among Thieves, does suggest very strongly that the Imperium has at least some concrete information about the workings of Theev (From one source at least) IMC there are elements of the Imperium who know exactly what Theev is, but they keep it pret...

I would carefully cross out everything on that page.

Re: Questions on starship hull points

I take a starship at 0 hull as not destroyed, but non-functional. So many hull breaches, power conduits/cables cut, systems with critical damage, that it no longer works as a spaceship. As a rough guide I tend to figure that another half it's maximum hull points in damage (once it reaches zero) will...

Re: Live Traveller Q&A?

Sunday evening GMT will put Australians (Or people around us) at a bit of a disadvantage to jump in, early Monday morning and all.

So put my vote in for Saturday, probably still be early, but you can't get everything :)

Haven't got them down under yet, either. I think it's just European countries.
Mine turned up in NSW yesterday in great nick (And full of terrible things for me to do to people)

So I don't reckon they'll be long for anyone.

Re: Starting Drinax Advice

Mine run the Captain at five shares. But he refuels the ship, does monthly maintenance, and pays the NPC crew salaries out of his shares. (They obviously get their own shares as well, but separately) The other players have thrown in for upgrades and Harrier repairs, but the day to day is on him, and...

Re: Sensors in starship combat

Yeah. I might give my group the chance to take potshots from the dark out at long ranges with only a bonus to the victims sensor rolls. I do have them automatically detected when they come up to Medium...or Short range then open fire though (Unless they can come up with some reasonable way to convin...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

The ship needs upgrades for its weapons right away. That was the verdict from my players. particle barbette is awesome for inflicting crew hits and doing some nasty damage from beyond range of most opponents. The players also had TL 14 missiles so their missile attack had a better sting. They added...

Re: Updated Release Schedule

I've been running since November...stalling, and sidelining my players, only run one adventure from the actual campaign book. Those physical books do make it that much easier.

I think Matt said somewhere that they might be in customs (coming into the UK) though. So fingers crossed for not too long.

You can't just make an enlarged fleet for Ferrik in adventure one. Because he is a desperate man who managed to break away a t...

My mistake ;) I didn't actually look at it first. Luckily none of my players have ever tried to put specialised ammunition in a gauss weapon...yet.

Re: Can gauss weapons use AP rounds?

The major way I stop people from just using AP ammo all the time IMTU is legality. Places might be tolerant of you carrying a pistol, or rifle around, but when you start humping AP rounds around, or even hunting them down to purchase them in a moderate law level society, the authorities may take not...
