Re: Do me a favor?

It's not grammar that's the problem here. As I have repeatedly stated, the problem is that you write in extremely long and confused sentences. Misplaced punctuation is of little consequence if you try to write in an easily readable format. Write in short sentences, one thought at a time. Put line br...

Yes, PD with dogfighting missiles still requires a hit roll, and missiles are killed like PD does.

Re: Questions, mostly Drinax 1's

Someone is trolling from this identity. If this brother story is true, you have a responsibility to prevent it. If it's you and this is another excuse to carry on... well, either way this identity is trolling the boards and you can make it stop.

I don't buy this 'brother' story. In any case the questions I'm referring to are in a threat post 'brothergate'.

Re: Could they pull it off?

Try asking again in coherent English maybe? I got the general idea that you know a Drinax group (is this ANOTHER one?) who, like all the others, have a grandiose plan and you want the board members comment on it. Your question is vague yet overcomplex, incoherent, lacking in basic grammar to the poi...

Re: Questions, mostly Drinax 1's

Also 5: Oleb is a shouty asshat who's prone to mood swings and extreme behaviour. That's an... unconventional... way to approach diplomacy. Someone who tried being civil might do better.

Re: Questions, mostly Drinax 1's

Well, that's a bit easier to read. Not great, but a good effort. 1. Sometimes the Effect is relevant, giving an indicator of degree of success or finesse. You could also take double 1 as a success but an embarrasingly bodged one, and double-6 as an example of marvellous success. ('You hear a guard w...

Re: My apologies

It is truly astounding that your brother could have so perfectly copied your distinctive writing style. The run-ons, merciless disregard for grammar or readability and general incoherence were all spot on. Case in point: I tried to read your Legends questions and dislocated my brain. You're saying t...

Re: What's Traveller5 like?

Quite a while ago now, one of the COTI admins announced of T5 that 'The sourcebooks are just waiting to be written!' which I thought a rather odd turn of phrase. As far as I can tell from the response to my query, nobody has been assigned to writing any source material. It does appear that T5 uses t...

Another friend claiming to be running a Drinax campaign? Why not find out if this campaign is actually happening before asking hypothetical questions about it? Also... usual anwer... the commander of Byrni's armed forces holds whatever rank Byrni's government awards. Why not create some game flavour...

Re: What rank would you suggest?

Again... depends what you mean by 'regiment' - in modern parlance it's an administrative formation which can contain multiple battalions. Pretty sure this has been mentioned before... do you actually read these replies you say you value? In other news, the commander of a planet's forces holds whatev...

Re: Help me find what I need

Well then. You need to generate sensible characters with mo more than 3-4 terms, no allowing huge stats or rerolling until they get lucky. Definitely no vast portfolios. And focus on details, not vast sweeps of time until the next random roll on the Big Money Chart. Roleplay chasing rumours in the b...

Re: Help me find what I need

Official stuff won't work with your usual style of play. Given incidents you've related in the past withoin a couple of sessions your players will have the best equipment, super-psions and a fleet of ships with hundreds of loyal minions. The offical materials were not written with that level of rewa...

Re: What rank would she have

Naturally this is the most powerful/greatest/best. That was a given. Odd that you gave a very specific force composition then found it was entirely different. Specificity wasn't really necessary but if you're going to do it, it seems strange to do it without checking. Two companies with supports mig...
