Re: CEI (and ECEI)

Thanks for the comments everyone. It clears up most of my confusion.

One issue that I'm still slightly confused about is how CEI and ECEI interact. Do we all think ECEI resets to CEI between missions?

Updates to alien modules on Mongoose store.

I saw on Drivethrurpg that there have been new versions of the pdfs of the two alien modules posted: volume 1 was updated 22 January, and volume 2 was updated 5 January. I bought them from Mongoose, and figured I'd download the new versions. However, it seems that the versions on Mongoose's site are...

CEI (and ECEI)

Seeing CEI and ECEI make a reappearance in Mercenary (having first shown up in "Element Class Crusiers”), I thought I’d ask some questions about things I don’t get about them. Hopefully some wise folk here can explain them to me... 1. What’s the relationship between ECEI and CEI? Somehow I got the i...

Aliens of Charted Space vol 2 typos

I've just finished going through the second aliens volume. Figured I'd start a topic for typos before the print edition comes out. Major P132 Enlisted rank skills and benefits are copied from Official. Suggest that these be replaced with the same NCO benefits as in the core rulebook for Navy. Medium...

Page 15, "Aslan lord could roll Diplomat and add the TER DM instead" ("use" removed). Page 18, "He gains 1D Clan shares" should probably read "You gain 1D Clan shares" Page 44, Corporation has some odd numbers: MCr500000 is *a lot* of assets (it was MCr5 in Pirates of Drinax).

Re: Aliens of charted space vol 1 typos.

Page 6, there should be a comma before "settling disputes between prides".

Page 11 should either read "took a hundred wounds" or "took 100 wounds".

Re: Wet Navy Combat Damage

Here are some thoughts (three possible approaches): As the MgT2e system stands, there are a three things going on: 1. Wet navy ships have a capped armour level. So they're always going to take quite a bit of damage from destructive hits (although, as you note, they can take *a lot* of hits). 2. Torp...

Page 156, Electromagnetic Environment Protection: "each of that" should be "each of which". Page 178, "trial an error" should be "trial and error". Page 183, "but they becomes an Enemy" reads a bit off. I would say "but he/she becomes an Enemy". Page 211, Armour sets. Kforzhazuk should weigh 3.5kg (...

1. Page 109, I think should read "There is little leeway for those who cannot do this due to circumstances and an unmarried female eventually becomes casteless and is driven out of her family." (at present it reads "There is a little leeway...", which seems to contradict the second half of the sente...

Re: Vargr careers seem odd

Balance in the math apparently isn't something that they're designing for with this book, so... Some of the specializations with higher difficulties seem to have more rank-up benefits associated with them, so in theory you get more out of them if you go for 5/6 terms and succeed at both rolls in ev...

Re: Aliens of charted space vol 1 typos.

1. K’kree with SOC 10 aren’t identified as either merchants or nobles. I suggest Merchants be SOC 7-10, since otherwise levels of nobility need to shuffle. This needs fixing on page 125 (table) and 134, Merchant page. 2. Page 127, the table allows Merchants to be assigned to “service” on a roll of 1...

Aliens of charted space vol 1 typos.

Thought I'd start a topic for typos in the new pdf. 1. Zhodani career summary (page 255) seems to have three careers from Aslan tacked on the end (Outcast, Outlaw, Wanderer). 2. Vargr Corsair page 186 and Vargr Emissary show "Commissioner" and "+1 SOC" as a second rank 6 row. The same problem occurs...

Vargr careers seem odd

Just been reading the new Aliens of Charted Space, and the Vargr careers seem a bit unusual. Pretty much all of the Imperial/Zhodani/Aslan careers have survival and advancement add up to the same number, so jobs are a risk/return tradeoff. For example, in the imperial navy: Line/crew Survival 5+ Adv...

Re: The Traveller Companion - PDF & Pre-Order

A couple from the weaponry chapter: Carronades (pages 164-165) do not have a tonnage listed. They use 4 hard points, which suggests that they are almost as big as a large bay. Their damage is huge for a turret/barbette, but poor for a bay. Their size is important not only for displacement, but also ...
