Re: Travellers Needed - Missiles (check our numbers)

Following from my question in the other missile thread, I think it would be good to clarify that regular range DMs don’t apply to missile salvoes, nor does fire control, but evasion and evasive action (if used) do.

Re: Torpedoes and Missiles

Quick question: what DMs (besides salvo size, homing, and +6 for distant) apply to missile attack rolls? Do the regular range mods apply? Can the target take evasive action? Does software (fire control /evade) apply?

Re: Aliens of charted space vol 1 typos.

Bump. Also a thought on the Aslan corporation issue (page 44): "Page 44, Corporation has some odd numbers: MCr500000 is *a lot* of assets (it was MCr5 in Pirates of Drinax). The 1D-5 gross profit means that most years the corporation loses money (Drinax has 1D% gross profit). In any case, "Gross pro...

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

Before listing comments on the CRB, I'd say that personally, I would really like to see the two "Aliens of Charted Space" volumes cleaned up. It looks like someone did a bit of editing on volume 1, but they're both still a bit rough, and I fear that they'll go to print like that. At the moment, to u...

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...

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".

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...
