Re: Cargo Pod

You could also give the pod a light hull, reducing its cost a bit more.

Missile fighters practical?

I was looking to convert some of the CT Zhodani ship designs to MgT2 and noticed in Adventure 4: Leviathan that the Shivva -class patrol frigate contains a squadron of 8-ton missile fighters. Is that practical in MgT2 terms? I suppose in concert against a single target, a wave of fighters could over...

Re: Shadows Of Sindal

Maybe the TKTK convergence is considered fanon even if created under licence ? I would assume it's still fanon (never heard that term before, but it's obvious what it means). In any case, you will find a tighter looking Tktk map in Naval Adventure 3: Fire on the Sindalian Main . As the author of bo...

By the way, thanks for the chapter on that awesome tool in The Glorious Empire. That was really helpful.
You're welcome, Ursus Major. :) I hope the tutorial helps people to make fluid borders in their campaigns. Some of those travellermap tools are pretty cool.

Re: Travellers Needed - Pirates of Drinax Reprint

Yet again another stupid population number. What is it with TENS OF BILLIONS of people living on desolate worlds? The modern human race on Earth has had 100,000 years (give or take a few millennia) to reach 7 billion on a garden world yet the crew of 15 scout ships stranded on a poor world reach 30...

Re: Running Safari Ship Adventure

Hunting is kind of a combination of Recon, Stealth, Survival, Navigation, Gun Combat and perhaps Animals. Hard to be good at all of those, but those skills seem to cover it. As for the lead-up, District 268 Subsector has a lot going on. It’s an unincorporated subsector but has lots of Imperial clien...

Re: Flatlined

*** SPOILER ALERT FOR PLAYERS WHO HAVE NOT RUN FLATLINED *** It really is a nicely designed little adventure. I ran it once to start off a new group of Travellers and I'm planning on running it again with an entirely new group. The second group is currently closing in on the end of the adventure, Is...

Re: Travellers Needed - Pirates of Drinax Reprint

As for the patron mission, it's certainly a cheapskate price, but doesn't mean its an error. She could take them for being clueless about money (i.e. an Aslan male) and is trying to take advantage of them. And the 7700 price in the core book is for a single jump, which is unlikely in this scenario....

Re: Traveller News Service.

Nice! Those make great hooks to draw your players in. The idea of TNS reporters in the Void makes sense. It’s a dangerous place so they would be the equivalent of modern-day war correspondents.

That's a great point. Such are the things of which great campaigns are made! When the players are on the razor's edge. Whatever they do, I hope you come back and tell us how it went. Funny that you mention the Arunisiir situation. A friend of mine playing in a different PoD campaign is in a group th...

They rescued the Borites from a vicious Oghman attack after saving Krrsh from the station in system. Now they have a solid income for the time being. Oleb liked that, but he craves piracy really bad... Ahhh, Krrsh. I loved that NPC. Sadly he got nailed by a sniper on Theev in our campaign. Never ev...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Come to think of it, widespread use of the bioweapon could invoke a response from the Imperium. A great deal of wealth is generated by the trade generated on the Hierate route. So much that corporate entities within the Imperium might not take too kindly to '28 Days Later' happening to their trade p...

Re: Shadows of Sindal Thread (Spoilers)

I must have an empathetic group. While the Aslan are perceived as a lingering threat in the region, the thought of using a bioweapon is anathema to them. Of course, my guys don't even pirate anything. They farmed that out to Miria Silverhand and are instead trying to establish diplomatic and trade t...
