Looking for good sample of space Combat

We went through our first Space Combat the other night and it was fun but we totally missed Sustained Damage. I am looking at it now and Whoa! Devastating.

Re: Snake Eyes and Box Cars

A roll of 2 on 2D6 is 1/36 ≈ 2.8%, so less likely than a roll of 1 on 1D20 (5%). No additional qualifiers for fumble/crit necessary.

Snake Eyes and Box Cars

So I am thinking of the following home brewed idea. My players are pretty stacked with good skills and attributes. This is not hard to do when you mix good decisions that end up panning out in character creation. Then add Jack of all Trades. So, my point is with skill 4 and an attribute bonus of 2 a...

Tables/Info on times and difficulties for Modifiying Ships

I am running Pirates of Drinax and the players have the Harrier and a beat Far Trader. They have done some successful buying and selling and have the ship shares to spend on the Harrier. I don’t see times or costs or difficulties listed to say add a turret, state rooms, boarding mechanisms, etc. The...

Re: NPC Rogues Gallery

All, thank you. I am aware of all the previous versions of Traveller I just didn’t know they did a newer 1001 characters, I got it now and it’s great! Thanks again :^)

NPC Rogues Gallery

Other than the very dated 1001 Traveller Characters book from the 80’s, do we know where to find great archetype NPC stat blocks for Traveller would be?

Running Pirates of Drinax

I am running Curse of Strahd and have been for just over a year and I really appreciate the many fine authors that have contributed to the DM’s Guild at DrivethruRPG. These are supplements that take the prospective DM through every part of the book, offering lists of characters, treasures and tips o...
