Re: Reach Adventure 7: The Last Train Out of Rakken-Goll - Ebook & Pre-Order

I seem to have a thing about trains, he said looking at the Voidshore cover.

Re: Reach Adventure 7: The Last Train Out of Rakken-Goll - Ebook & Pre-Order

I don't know who put that world name on the map. It wasn't me, that'sfor sure. But I needed a world with the right conditions/UWP so I used it.

No giant war birds, though the Bunnyhawk might be considered a humourous reference to the godawful book series.

It's because you secretly want me to be a Michael. Many people do.

It's amazing how often people want me to be a Michael. I'm actually a Martin.

Re: Traveller Companion Chargen Question

Higher rank opens doors for the Traveller, impresses people, creates roleplaying opportunities for those who wanted to have a more senior background.

Re: Duds in space

There is a scene in Shadow of the Storm where Stormshadow only has training missiles aboard, so fires them in penny packets to ensure the enemy's point-defence can cope. We don't want one to get through and show them theyre just duds; they might stop being distracted....

Re: Exactly how foolish was I?

I just noticed the claim that the Zhodani psionic treachery was faked. OK, so Drinax revealed they have Zhodani allies who will do stuff like this for them. That's a death sentence from the Imperium, who will not tolerate a Zhodani puppet state (especially one receiving such epic levels of support) ...

Re: Exactly how foolish was I?

You don't seem to comprehend the scale of these things or their implications. Leaving aside the question of who built this thing and why, and how they can afford to operate it... and why the Imperium and the Hierate tolerate its existence, and... well, leaving aside the implausibility of its very ex...

Re: What do you think of this Dream Portfolio

I think that giving these vast portfolios to players creates a situation where there is no point in them playing a typical Traveller game. Why would this person go adventuring? If they needed to do something they have money and connections that could be used to deal with the problem. But you knew th...

Re: Gateway Domain Campaign Adventure 1: Homecoming

I would like to rework it someday to be useful with Mongoose Traveller, but that requires quite a major revision and a setting to put it in.

Re: Gateway Domain Campaign Adventure 1: Homecoming

You should not be able to buy it. If someone is selling it, the author (me) is not benefiting. There is a longer story, but the short version is that Homecoming is one of the products I wrote for QLI which was not paid for. I released it under the Avenger license but was forced to remove it from sal...

Re: What would it be worth in Traveller?

Yeah, I've seen some hilarious values. Maybe they refer to the suftboard-sized swords you get in some video games.

Re: My aplologies again

You do realise, don't you, that your posts when someone is (you claim) impersonating you and when you're you, are equally abusive of the goodwill of this board's members? You ask the same questions over and over, whether you're you or not, and ignore the answers. Having wasted a lot of time actually...

Re: Would they be good enough to be Pirate Lords?

1. Wierdly detailed for a dream, that. 2. Thse imaginary characters are grossly overpowered to be pirate lords in the setting I write. Someone that powerful who insisted on doing piracy would be a priority target for the Imperial Navy. Not that they could support all those ships by piracy anyway... ...

Re: What would it be worth in Traveller?

That makes more sense. I'd assumed the original game supplement got it wrong, like nearly all games give really silly weights for weapons.

Re: What would it be worth in Traveller?

40 carat gold would be 40 parts out of 24 pure gold. So this 13-pound ring contains 21.67 pounds of gold. This suggests the original item was maybe not written up very carefully. Or maybe it's some sort of superdense material.
