Not sure this counts as errata technically, but can we get a serious set of bookmarks?
Better yet, can we get the ability to create our own bookmarks?

Re: Your thoughts on this old Drinax

The least interesting things about RPGs include stat lists, fleet descriptions, and territorial surveys, especially when given with zero context, history, or description of the trials and challenges conquered to acquire such lists.

Re: Traveller Fiction - New Stories Every Wednesday!

A brand new line of Traveller fiction has just been released, and we will be adding to it every Wednesday for the foreseeable future! Maybe this has already been addressed in lead up discussions, but how do these stories relate to Canon if at all? Some of these stories may end up being about stand-...

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?

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 ...
