Post Career Education and Characteristics

Hello. I wonder: During the careers and even within the scope of Benefits Player Characters may earn additional points for their Characteristics depending on how they role on the specific career or benefit tables. The Post Career Education does not offer rules on how to evolve Characteristics during...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Hello, two weeks ago together with friends we have decided to jump into the PoD campaign. Before starting with player character creation and the first scene with the King we have chosen to use our first game session only for the purposes of getting used to ship2ship combat in MgT2; and for this sess...

Mine was from the kickstarter, so I imagine they went out first.
Aye. Plausible and most likely. I was late, so I am not a backer. Awesome, enjoy!

Re: Opposed Checks – Need help with rule interpretation

Hello. Same as Reynard. Try to make sense of it storywise: 1) If both characters fight each other in a duell with, let‘s say sabres, both characters miss - one even more than the other. Still, both miss, thus both fail and therefore the character missing with the better effect does not win the this ...

Re: Drivethru PDF

Hello. We will look into it, but there really isn't a great deal changed (I have a feeling you can count the changes on one hand, and none have any real impact on gameplay). Just a tidy up, really, you are not going to be missing anything! Awesome! These are good news. Thank you and best wishes! Cp...

I own the first printing of the Core Rulebook, but not as an electronic document from drivethrurpg; thus I don‘t have a good opportunity to look out for changes and ...

Re: Combat damage effects and charactiscs DM

Hello, Initially, used to HP and similar pools, taking damage directly from the Stats was a distant idea to me. However, in practice, I admit it's a really clever and simple system that reflects the injury level. Yes, totally. Kind of mind-blowing tbh. I am very used to games which simulate hit poin...

Re: Rules: about suffocation and vacuum

Hello. You could add in the extra D6 damage in the 10th round, but by that time the player has taken 55 D already. Will the extra D6 really make that much of an impact? They have also taken 10 D6 in radiation damage on average, and have a -3 END penalty from the cumulative exposure. (asuming the vac...

Re: Rules: about suffocation and vacuum

Hello. The suffocation din an area without life support and is minute based. This is different from a vacuum, it is just low oxygen content but pressure is there. In a vacuum situation there is no pressure which causes the biggest issue, so I would not bothere with the suffocation damage after 1 min...

Re: Combat damage effects and charactiscs DM

Hello. That's how I have understood damaged stats to function. It's also strongly implied by the rule on natural healing (CRB, p, 79): A Traveller who requires surgery only regains characteristic points equal to his END DM per day of rest, which means that the Traveller may never heal naturally and ...

Combat damage effects and charactiscs DM

Hello, there is another question I have concerning the New Traveller combat rules this time. If a Traveller‘s or opponent‘s characteristics are reduced due to applicable damages, does this have an effect on the current DMs of the attributes as well. Example: Dexterity falls from 11 to 5 - does the c...

Rules: about suffocation and vacuum

Hello, In the Core Rulebook for NewTraveller, there on pages 77 and 78 you describe the suffocation- and the vacuum-rules. Is my understanding correct that these rules are applied in addition to each other? Example: A Traveller drops into outa space for whatever reason. In round 1 he suffocates rece...
