Re: What to do

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.

Re: Traveller Companion: Test Driving the Background and Career Packages

I’ve used the new rules to create NPCs a little quicker l, just tweaking skills a little to get them exactly right. It’s been a great time saver.

Re: The Traveller Companion - PDF & Pre-Order

Has it been established that a failing jump bubble can’t be reestablished during the 7 day flight? I’d be tempted to allow a difficult engineer (jump drive) check each day to establish a better bubble and cease all intrusions.

I’ve always gone with A but I can see B being a possibility if something major was discovered mainly so the PCs don’t lose stuff they just brought to a high law level world. I could see the nessessity of creating smuggling areas for this type of equipment and if it was going to end up being taken aw...

Re: The Traveller Companion - PDF & Pre-Order

Not sure where to put it, but the Misjumps table on page 143 has a 1D roll listed but it should be 2D.

Re: Megafreighters

It’s possible to imagine a ship that is effectively a large spine with cargo sections attached to them that can actually deprecate and fly down from orbit, with each bay carrying a few hundred tons.

Re: PSION detection

It may be that Deneb has a Psi-busters team that can weedle out psions using this TL16 tech along with the psi protection armor and enhancements but the expense and actual number of times they are needed would make it fairly small. I don’t think prions should be a “magic” that no one can defend them...

Very nice write up. Did you do a rough sketch of the facility or just decide which parts needed to be taken over in order to succeed?

Re: Would The Aslan comply?

I’d say Aslan would only use limited wars against other Aslan, they wouldn’t trust anyone else to follow the strict rules and conduct. Against anyone else it would probably be a full on attack.
