Re: Getting rid of negative Quirks in spacecraft

Good thoughts but how do you suggest clearing up the 1 about it having a reputation so bad that in several systems it will be seized, possibly without warning and could even land The Pcs in trouble and/or in jail?. After all you'd have to go their to clear it up and that could be more hassle then it...

For a idea I'm toying with for Admiral Darokyn having A Private very large Class B Starport what size fleet would The Imperium have to send to have a very high chance of capturing or destroying it when its defenses and automated weapons can definitely drive off but almost definitely not destroy more...

How would it work?

How would The Plot of Game of Shadow and Sun work if it is done as the last adventure but 1 and by that time Drinax is so powerful that ever nation other then The Hierate, Imperium and Zhodanni and including The Glorious Empire and Floranni officially recognize it as the 4th and weakest major power ...

A friend says that approaching the half-way point of her Pirates of Drinax Campaign The Pcs took out A Cr 500,000,000 loan to fully upgrade their Starport from Wildemann with GeDeCo. They then did blackmailed GeDeCo with what they knew to write off them debt then still sold what they knew to The Asl...

In a friends campaign The Noble Pc used his portfolio of 1 Cr 25 million estate, 1 Cr 10 million business and 1 Cr 5 million doubled to Cr 10 million for A 63 on Connoisseur Resident Complex as collateral to get The Cr 22,000,000 to fully repair The Harrier and have Cr 11.5 million left, with it reg...

Re: How to not get spaced

Yes, to what EwanS said - a pirate ship captured can be returned to Imperial space. But, as you say, the scanner signature is one that is on record, so law enforcement may fire on it without warning if it comes in their range. It may take some time for the new records to be distributed across all s...

How to not get spaced

Something that happened many years ago when I was A Traveller Player and that may happen again is The Pcs faking surrendering to A Pirate, letting them dock and board then The Pcs using Poison Gas pumping booby traps that they've took the antidote to and claiming the pirate ship.

How to assign Ship Shares

Since I don't like the ideas of having no Ship Shares to partially or mostly repair The Harrier yet The Pcs have convinced me to use The Career Package Rules in The Traveller Companion when it comes out is their any way to get them Ship Shares so that The Harrier isn't going to cost a fortune to get...

Re: JBE: What Monsters Do You Want to See?

Things like Gorgons, Medusa's and Basilisk's that with enough luck with the dice can take A Foe, even A Pc, out of the campaign for a long time and do so regardless of The Tech Level of the victims armour

I'm wondering about something. If the group doesn't have a skill they can't get the planned best ending result in the campaign without at least 1 of them having it at at least /2 with at least A +4 DM and they can't be bothered learning it cos they don't know that they can't get the planned best end...
