There's probably some of my stuff not on there, but I can't think of anything offhand.

Re: SITREP MJD

I'm not sure what you mean.

I don't know how complete that list is. There's at least one entry on it that I didn't write.

Re: SITREP MJD

I actually did that.

Then I found that someone else had published something that was now recognised as canon and contradicted/over-wrote what I published in GtD. Which meant I'd wasted my time.

Not sure what the resolution of that would be.

Re: SITREP MJD

Currently working through Shakedown, the naval campaign mission. It's more fiddly than expected because of all the examples but it's progressing well.

Once it's compelete, that's the whole naval cruiser experience all done and I can run off and live in the forests as a wild man.

Re: What should The GM do?

It's more than a little strange that every GM you know suffers from the same obsession with creating extremely contrived ways to give the players far more power and wealth than the adventure setting can stand. If you read Pirates of Drinax, the Travellers are given a ship. One ship. And with it they...

It's about 80% done, and it's top of the list ot be completed when I finish the current adventure for the Element Class Cruiser pack.

Re: Is it too small a command?

This is a good answer. The question is 'what force would a colonel command?'

Which can vary from one military to another, but typically a lt-colonel would be in command of a battalion sized force.

Re: A Suitable Fleet

Are you familiar with the adventure Flatlined? That was the last one I ran. Four Travellers woke up in a sinking cargo shuttle, in a lake. Without even proper shoes. We got hours of play time just getting out of the shuttle and yomping to the nearby outpost. Yet more time spent dealing with what was...

Re: A Suitable Fleet

My point is that the scale of your version of the setting is so wildly different to the setting as written that none of the underlying provisos apply. There always seems to be a reason - psionic manipulation of a rich noble to do something stupid, luckiest die rolls ever, aliens from 4.45 galaxies o...

Re: What's to stop them?

What if, just for once, someone doesn't get the best roll possible on the luckiest dice thrown in the last 12.552 years...? What if they get a modest result and gain a moderate advantage that doesn't break the game? In any case, big estates or holdings are generally connected with politics and econo...

Re: A Suitable Fleet

Presumably this duke of Tobia was executed for treason? Giving away the Best Ship Ever on a bet isn't something a responsible political figure will do. A lunatic might, but he'd be removed as a warning to others and the ship would not be handed over. These games you describe seem to all have built i...

Re: A Suitable Fleet

I've never met anyone who tried to play a game like Traveller on such a grandiose scale. You seem to know several gaming groups who do nothing but. Drinax, like most other Traveller products, is aimed at a group of guys struggling along on a shoestring and (occasionally) getting lucky. Once you star...

Re: SITREP MJD

The first Naval adventure is set in Deneb sector close to Trin's Veil subsector.

I'm not aware of any online guidelines for Mongoose I'm afraid.

SITREP MJD

I has recently occurred to me that I might post updates here about the work I'm doing for Mongoose. Yes, it really did take that long to come up with the idea. Anyway. As I type this, I'm in possession of the edited version of the Naval Campaigns Guide. That one seems to be finished. I'm working fro...
