Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

. . . The address turned out to be that of a travel goods shop that was run by an aging Aslan male. . . . I would think that although the shop might be owned by an Aslan male, it would be run by females. . . . In private, Leah consulted Jim briefly, urging him to keep the conversation to "executive...

How do I persuade A Player to take A Deal?

In a encounter idea I'm toying with giving A Zhodanni High Noble could get pushed aside by A Ex War Hero Pc whilst The Pc is chasing A Thief on A World where the normal punishment is public execution on the spot via Psionic Torture. But as The Pc is A Ex War Hero and The Zhodanni High Nobles Son her...

Ideas for running A After Drinax Campaign

Inspired by A Old Traveller Campaign I was a player in back in The 90's where I played as part of a group that commanded A Small Fleet designed to hunt down enemies of The Imperium that was basically A Traveller Version of Star Wars from The Empires point of View how do I run A Campaign where The Pl...

How do you think The Imperium respond?

In A Traveller Dream I had last night The Pcs in A None-Drinax Pirate Campaign used the greatest none-Zhodanni Human Psion in Galactic History to steal A Prototype Tech Level 16 1344,800 ton Super-Light Battleship by turning its crew traitor with The Psions abilities and am curious as to how you thi...

Re: Would The Aslan comply?

I’d say Aslan would only use limited wars against other Aslan, they wouldn’t trust anyone else to follow the strict rules and conduct. Against anyone else it would probably be a full on attack. Even though The Super-Races Diplomat is a idiot in a very big way and lets slip that following their own ...

Re: Building the Alliance in Pirates of Drinax

Yeah, I don’t see Browne as part of the campaign. Browne’s got its own problems, and Ihatei and Pirates ain’t among them! My crew identified Pourne as a key resource early on. They’ve buttered up the bureaucrats there by solving the mystery ship issue, spending lots of cash on ship repairs and comp...

Would The Aslan comply?

If a group from my Super-Empire, called The Nacarh Empire, ended up in a dispute with The Aslan would The Aslan agree to use The Super-Empires Rules and Laws for A Limited War and not their own due to the fact that in a situation like the current 1 The Super-Empires Rules and Laws for A Limited War ...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Drinaxi military at the start of the campaign

On the subject of Drinax's Navy every source I've read says their 100 ton Scoutships are the only jump capable 1's, but does any official source ever say if their other ships have no Jump-Drives or whether some have Jump-Drives that either can't be fixed or some reason haven't yet been fixed or will...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Drinaxi military at the start of the campaign

Seems reasonable enough, especially with the caveat of only 1-3 SDB’s being operational. Somewhere in the books it mentions their “Navy caps out at 200 tons, and most vessels are small yachts with turrets added. One of the adventures also gives stats for the hawk warriors, who are decidely average,...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Drinaxi military at the start of the campaign

I usually go with 6 or 7 100 ton armed and armoured Scoutships as they are said to be Drinax's only jump-capable Ships and 3 or 4 200 armed and armoured Far Traders that they bought off of the last owners after using them to take Asim. As well as which as Drinax is said to have ships of up to 400 to...
