Re: Firing during opponent movement

The hold action rule is the way I rule it. If a pc holds his action to shoot should the character break cover he gets a shot, otherwise he moves from cover to cover.

Re: Tyr-adores sector additional info

Just saw this. Autocorrect changed the title. It should be Dpres sector.

T20’s on Bundle of Holding- useful for a MG2 game?

I have no experience with T20’s but a lot (everything) has just hit bundle of holding and I was wondering if it would prove useful to my 2e game, most likely with setting stuff and aliens but possibly adventure ideas too. Does anyone here have any experience with this version? I’d also love to know ...

Re: Third Imperium Supplements in MongTrav2e

I picked up the borderlands system PDFs (Wildeman etc) and they are stat free with loads of info about the system that fills in a lot of unknowns. I would pick up more of these if my players happened to be heading that way and would love to have more available for Tech-World and other Drinax adjacen...

How long does it take to build a ship?

Title says it all. Is there a formula to determine how long it takes eg tons x weeks? My player are having the ships Tech Worlds requires built for them and I wondered how long it would take.

Re: Traveller Companion breakdown/ review

My review does give all of the chapter headings as well as an idea of what is actually in the book that may help you decide. I went for it for the transponder info alone. Everything else was a bonus.

Play it out and the answer will reveal itself. No one except your players can say. There are possibilities but that is all.

Re: Question on the 100D jump limit

I think the answer is no, you can’t preempt where a ship is going to jump in system. The one instance this came up in my game so far was to ambush an Aslan trade convoy. The reason I allowed the players to ambush them was because the information they gathered told them the astrogation route they wou...

Re: Question on the 100D jump limit

My assumption is the astrogation check is the means of deciding where you exit jumpspace. The idea that the planet itself would pull the ship out of jump early is a good one but without having every planet mapped I’ve always averaged travel time to any location on the surface from the exit point. Th...

Re: Who shot the missile in Lions of Thebus?

Yup they all seem plausible. My group didn’t find out but they may do should they dig a little deeper but they seemed happy enough to just move on right now.

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Where are the crown jewels of Sindal?

Byrni would be a good place to have something, as would the guy that’s the patron hook for Noricum, a descendent who may have just stashed the item as it wasn’t useful.

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Where are the crown jewels of Sindal?

I think the idea is that Oleb Sold them off to prolong his life and keep the palace running but they would be great mcguffins to get PCs to visit more “interesting” planets in search of them.

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Can gravity plates from starships he used on planets to create zero g rooms or even just a normal 1g environment? If so then I guess this can explain the gravity discrepancies a little.
