Re: Conversions from other systems

Starfinder, a sci fi/space travel version of Pathfinder, is coming out next month. You should be able to mine that for ideas.

Re: The Type-Y kind of Yachts we should be seeing

Lord Lovat makes a good model for the competent noble commander

From Wikipedia

"Brigadier Simon Christopher Joseph Fraser, 15th Lord Lovat and 4th Baron Lovat, DSO, MC, TD, JP, DL was the 25th Chief of the Clan Fraser of Lovat and a prominent British Commando during the Second World War."

Re: What happened to Zero-G?

How about applying a bane if you don't have Zero G experience, and applying a boon only if you have extensive Zero G training a la Star Marines?

Re: Mercenary Accreditation and Weapons permits

IIRC a weapon you get as a mustering out benefit, such as an ACR, comes with all the appropriate licenses.

No license? Keep it stowed away while in port.

Re: Items 1 tech higher

We always played that Class A-C starports were at least T12 or could support the jump drives required to reach them, whichever was higher. I don't recall a rule like the one you are looking for, but it's been a long time since I actually played the game.

Re: Questions about sensors, comms, signals, etc.

But databases should have a complete list of all commercial ships and private vessels, even if the information is out of date; so a forty year old freetrader that made it's way from the Solomani Rim to the Spinward Marches would be identifiable, though not updated on current ownership. Good point. ...

Re: Questions about sensors, comms, signals, etc.

What happens when a ship enters a system for the first time, before word of its presence in the sector makes its way to the port? It will have a new and unknown transponder signature by definition. Does it have to wait in quarantine until the next X-boat mail packet arrives?

Re: Large amounts of cash on ships

You could set up a Captain's Guild, or a Merchantmen Trust, and being in good standing adds a couple of dee emms during contract negotiations and encounters. Call the consortiums what ever you like, but they do offer a possible answer to the question of "how do we know we can trust you?" in the big...

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

This probably requires someone with Profession/Gunsmith, to tinker with a pump action shotgun. Once he has, you depress the trigger and slide the pump action continuously, causing the hammer to drop every time, and you have an automatish fire; it's referred to as slamfire. Or you could acquire a WI...

Re: Inspiration

There were only three things really memorable about the Firefly series, Christina Hendricks, Morena Baccarin, and the ship. Seen objectively, it looked like it would have lost steam towards the end of a full season in any event, and a lot of the nostalgia has to do more with could have been, rather...

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

Is there any way to order the hard copy from my FLGS and get in on the free PDF goodness? I try to funnel every purchase I can through my local store in the hope that they will stay open, but they are just NOW getting their allotment of High Guard from Alliance, their distributor.
