Blank (really, really blank) subsector maps

I want to generate the Foreven Sector for my game, and I want the hex numbers to correspond to the hex numbers on travellermap.com. Every "blank" subsector map I can find has hex numbers already applied. Is there a source for actually blank (just the hex grid and nothing else) printable subsector ma...

Re: Why can't I add bookmarks to my PDFs?

Editing bookmarks really ought to be allowed, even if editing the content is otherwise verboten.

Why can't I add bookmarks to my PDFs?

No, seriously. The core PDF is severely lacking in bookmarks, but I am inexplicably prevented from creating new ones. Who do I need to slap?

Not sure this counts as errata technically, but can we get a serious set of bookmarks?
Better yet, can we get the ability to create our own bookmarks?

Are 13mann's products worth anything?

One of my players (yes, holy crap, I'm running Traveller) wants to build a couple of engineering robots, and says he's gotten recommendations of Traveller ROBOTS by 13Mann. I'm not familiar with their material; is allowing this book worthwhile?

size and "bloat" is fine so long as everything is useful, fun or and unqiue - the bigger the better in that case

i don't have any issue with the size of T5, just that I'm pretty certain it doesn't work as a playable game without a lot of fixing first
What is it that makes T5 unplayable?

I think I'm still banned from COTI because I have a gmail address. This results in me having a poorer opinion of their product and management than I would normally.
Why does having a gmail address get you banned?

I didn't know about the "forked" editions when I backed the Great Rift Kickstarter; I just assumed that Mongoose's Traveller was the current edition. What's the take on T5?

Probably easier to imagine in a fantasy setting, where alliances can be sealed by marriage.
Fantasy? "Feudal" is the word you're reaching for, and I imagine a number of alliances in the TU have been sealed by marriage.

Re: A question of A Ex Royal Guard Officers new rank

Assuming that "Brigadier" is shorthand for "Brigadier [1-star] General," there's no reason why he wouldn't continue to call himself that. The force is a heavily reinforced battalion, bordering on two battalions, rather less than what a general ought to command; but you can write it off as the guy's ...

Re: Thnk like a criminal in the Third Imperium

We'll, ah, skip right over the first thing that comes to mind about that image, and go straight to: does the Imperium employ an actual unit of psionic spies, in spite of the ban on psionics?

What is actually banned, anyway? Can just having a PSI score get you arrested?

We're also going to need ideas on how to transmit information in ways that the Ministry of Justice or the Office of Naval Intelligence can't easily intercept. The simplest way to do this is still the oldest: send somebody. Don Corleone needs to send a message to Jareth the Goblin King. He tells the...

Spaceship armor: rhyme and/or reason?

Looking through the back of High Guard, I notice three warship designs that have no armor at all: the Midu Agasham -class destroyer, the Gionetti -class light cruiser,and the Arakoine -class strike cruiser. Several others have minimal armor. The Ghalalk -class armored cruiser is actually better armo...
