Re: Musings on Mercenary

The results were satisfactory. But that's not what you asked. The result was that ground based point-defences were inadequate to stop the shell, which landed very close to the target but did not strike directly. All the same, a lucky shot. The free trader suffered significant blast damage but was no...

Re: Musings on Mercenary

So today I fired a 12" railway gun at a landed Free Trader. Just by way of an experiment.

Re: Musings on Mercenary

Today's theme has been oddments. Like 'can I convert this .357mm derringer to a short-barelled emergency grab-gun capable of firing a range of ammunition types? For that situation where you want to deter the local wildlife with a flashbang round and it doesn't work so you move on to the high-explosi...

Re: Mercenary Box Set - Kickstarter on Friday 5th Feb 10am GMT

Actually this was coincidence. I'd not seen this art until after I did the flamethrowers and other projectors section.

Re: Musings on Mercenary

That's fine by me. I just don't want anyone spending a lot of time and effort they don't need to.

No problem. I just don't want anyone going to trouble to make helpful suggestions when I'm not able to use them.

Re: Musings on Mercenary

I wasn't fishing for suggestions. For various reasons I need to be sure my work is known to be mine rather than cribbed from discussions among fans.

This thread was more about me posting comments on what I'm doing as light relief from the process of doing it.

Re: Musings on Mercenary

I have considered this, as it happens.

My conclusion is that fusion and plasma will have an incendiary but not a burn effect. That is, they will quite likely start the target burning but do not themselves burn as all their energy is expended in the initial attack.

Musings on Mercenary

I'm fast approaching 'that' stage of the project. Living as a wild man in the forest is looking more appealing every day. So, now that Mercenary is offically A Thing In Being, I might let slip the odd comment. Today's theme is 'what happens if I shoot your flamethrower?' This is an example of the cy...

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.

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.
