Re: MGT1 Trade question

One passenger per stateroom: Middle Passage: This is ‘standard’ class. There will be a stateroom for every passenger and occasional service from the steward, but it is considered more functional than enjoyable as an experience. It requires a stateroom, 100kg of cargo, and one level of Steward per h...

Re: MGT1 Trade question

Side question : As far as I understand Luxury passage requires 1 stateroom (+1 Ton cargo ) per passenger, Middle passage, 1 stateroom per passenger (+100Kg cargo) also and Basic Passage can accomodate up to 4 passengers per stateroom. All this applies to standard stateroom. Luxury stateroom just ad...

Re: MGT1 Trade question

As far as I can tell the inclusion of the DMs for varying TLs in MgT2 only applies to Freight availability, not Buyer availability, as in MgT1. And this may be an indication that the Mgt1 DM's were not meant to apply in both directions. However, I personally think it makes sense that they would appl...

Re: Firing during opponent movement

Maybe it doesn't need mentioning, but don't forget penalties for firing at a moving target. Additionally, depending on the distance from one crate to another, there may also be a bane for firing through a constrained space.

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

I'm curious how people are using Rachando's Bizarre, from a PC supply standpoint? It's not totally clear from the book whether the bizarre should act as an open market for the Travellers, and if so, what is the availability of items considering the high TL of Drinax along with their lack of basic it...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Here are a couple potentially pedantic questions that are relevant to me as a referee, I'd like to hear opinions on: 1 - The Drinaxian Royal family is always referred to with their title of nobility and their first name. Is their any documentation of the family's surname? Or have other Referees just...

Re: Passenger Adventures?

Murder on Arcturus Station could be modified to be on a passenger ship. Have the murder happen the first day of jump, so there's a nice claustrophobic feel as the passengers and crew are all trapped with each other. Have a good read of it first, you'll want to make some prep, choose who the murdere...

Passenger Adventures?

I'm currently running the Pirates campaign, starting with the Marduk adventures. The PCs will soon be boarding a passenger vessel from Marduk to Drinax to meet King Oleb, and I'd like to make this trip an adventure of it's own. However, in looking around I haven't found any classic or new adventures...

Dustbelt Cluster

Marduk plays a decent roll in the Pirates of Drinax campaign with it's own Reach adventure, as well as an expanded patron adventure.

Any chance we'll see a write up on the Dustbelt cluster Oghma/Marduk/Borite similar to the Theev & Torpol cluster books?

Re: Aslan Character Stats

They have to learn it. They have the claws, and can use them, but using them well requires learning the skill. If they don't, they're not going to be very good at Aslan-style conflict resolution, now are they? :D I just took a look at the Background Skills, and Melee isn't in there, so I guess ther...

Aslan don't actually roll SOC. It is determined by their TER level. Thank you both.

So I've just started running the Pirates of Drinax campaign, and wouldn't you know two new players decided to create Aslan characters. This will be my first time dealing with Aslan characters, but it should have a pretty interesting impact on the campaign. However there is some confusion about some ...

No duplication with the Players Handbook, the Guide is a pure background title with some helpful hints on how to survive life in Alpha Complex.


Any chance this will receive a hard copy treatment, or should I just suck it up and get the pdf?

Re: Rule Contradiction - Stacking of Injuries

I'm just about to run my first Paranoia session this weekend, and while reviewing all of the books I too noticed this contradiction. My thoughts are actually that the Player's Handbook makes more sense where you add 1 "level" of damage if you take damage at a level equal to or lower than your curren...

CSC: Item Numbers & Stacking Body Armour

First question: All items in the CSC are paired with a 7-digit item number (ie. 01/84352.) While the prefix number is clearly associated with the collection the equipment is found in, the remaining 5 numbers seem to be completely random. I think the idea of a sku for each item could be really helpfu...
