Re: Free Blank Subsector map

It's a fine subsector map; clearly you've studied the others out there when you made yours. If downloads are what you're looking for, think about dialing it up slightly and include something on the map that the other versions don't have. Or arrange some useful bits they have in some new and interest...

Re: Dilettante Errata

reviving this thread... I'm going through a recent thread about yachts which references this book... anyone have any leads on where deckplan legends or number assignments can be found? Help. I'm scouring the interwebs but can't find them, and it seems like a fairly big omission if you actually want ...

Re: How old are we?

Can we link to other forums? I'm not sure, so I'll just provide references here. Citizens of the Imperium board - search on "How Old Are We? II" Facebook "Traveller-RPG" group - go to the group and search on "what is the average age in this group?" The distributions are very similar. I haven't yet d...

Re: How old are we?

In the Facebook Traveller group with the same question the distribution is close to identical, albeit with more votes. Relevant - in 2016 ComScore research said 20-34 yr olds were using FB for 2.5 times more minutes a week than the next nearest competing social media app, SnapChat. Soooooo it's not ...

Re: How old are we?

I want very much for that to be true. The more I see data that Traveller gamers are aging, I wonder more about longevity. "It's always been popular" or "I know lots of young people who play" aren't as persuasive as data might be. But I know this isn't in any way rigorous "research." Mostly I'm inter...

Re: How old are we?

I suspect many of us were. That is both awesome and possibly a problem, if you think along the lines of ongoing longevity of Traveller. This should be interesting.

How old are we?

I'm looking across the various Traveller forums and I'm seeing a trend; I'm wondering if the same will be born out here. How old are we all?

Re: Ortillery options

No idea how this would work out cost-wise, but in the book "Agent of the Imperium" Marc Miller goes into this in fair detail: the capital ships that are designated "siege engines" head out to the planetoid belt and harvest NiFe rocks, shape them correctly, attach thrusters and guidance systems to th...

Re: When a Noble is a Paladin

As I've said, I'm all for trying this, and anything you and your players are interesting. But what you've just written brings up an interesting point - although in DnD it's easy to tell good from evil just by reading alignments, in Traveller and specifically in the case you cite... I'd say not so mu...

Re: When a Noble is a Paladin

Overall it’s an interesting question, and in the truest Traveller Fan sense we all start breaking it down into little bits an pieces and critiquing those. Overall, I’d say “whatever you think you and your players might enjoy, have at it. It’s a game, meant to be enjoyed.” Devotion to what others say...

Re: Traveller Player Locator

This list seems to assume we're all in one place most of the time, and this doesn't work for me. I added the location "mobile/moving" at the very end. I do the digital nomad thing; I'm down for online games or to drop in wherever I happen to be, but I'm only in a given place for about a month or les...

Re: A Rough Blueprint?

So many places to jump in, here. As a random starting point, I'd say she might be better served worrying less about what precisely the crew gets paid. You could say they get paid "a lot, much higher than average" and be done with it. Stories abound, no two people say the same thing. A precise number...
