Re: Vacc suits for free?

I normally have enough emergency suits available for the total recommended crew. Anything better is brought by the individual.

Traveler Npc cards-any interest

I just finished a set of retainer cards fir OSR games, would anyone be interested in a set of cards for each career type to populate worlds etc? Each would have full stats, description and personality.

Re: Battle dress. Who has it?

Adding a bit more about the PoD campaign where this situation came up; one of the characters is ex-imperial marines and very familiar with the operations and maintenance of battledress suits. The Psi-Commando suit will be less familiar, but the new owner has Teleportation as one of her psionic tale...

Re: Battle dress. Who has it?

Since we're probably dealing with a Pirates of Drinax campaign in the OP, the laws and regulations that apply within the Imperium won't count for much. Nor are all of those suits going to be stolen. Given the history of the Reach (especially that of Sindal and its successor states) there'll be plen...

Battle dress. Who has it?

So my players recently went out of their way to acquire some battle dress from Theev, used of course. They have a pioneers set and a psi commando set. The pioneer set I’m saying is from the imperium (unless anyone can suggest better) but the psi set is an issue. It could be Zhodani but the design is...

Re: Drinax’s other worlds

Thanks. I didn’t think there was anything outside the map stuff. Presumably the other worlds are even more inhospitable than the main world, but could be used to hide old structures on.

Is there any more info about the other worlds in the Drinax system. I’ve scanned through a few PDFs but can’t seem to find it.

Re: High Guard Update - Comments Needed!

If you’re updating the sensor rules please include the transponder rules from the Companion. I waited a fair amount of time to see how those two systems worked together. The expanded jump rules in there also wouldn’t go amiss.

Re: Mining tonnage question

I think mining is measured in displacement tons so that answer will do nicely, thank you.

Mining tonnage question

I’m looking through Highguard at the mining tables and it has a yield percentage listed for a large planetoids but not the actually tonnage, anyone know what a 12km radius planetoids tonnage would be?

Re: Speeding up trading.

I use it all the time and usually pre-generate trade goods for systems my group is going to visit and jump out of in the next session. All it takes, is to know the DM a Traveller will inflict by skills and attributes on the roll, so it's fairly easy to use. This is pretty great!! Is there a place w...

Speeding up trading.

Has anyone come up with a good solution to speed up trading. While I like the detail the core book goes into about the topic sometimes a series of large ships can take an age to fill. I did have an idea if just allowing PCs to decide how much they wish to invest make one roll for the actual purchase...

Re: Shadows of Sindal Thread (Spoilers)

For the cash, I’ve always thought that if you outrun the info that it has been stolen you can spend it but may make a problem for yourself later when you return to the system. Staying away from xboat routes and heading to backwater systems when info travels with traders seems to be the way to go.

Shadow of Sindal question- Number One’s environment.

I had to double check this, but why is Number One completely different to the version in Pirates if Drinax? In SoS there is no mention of the domes, the warden or that it is mostly sea instead we get a planet with thick atmosphere and mountain valley settlements. Both differ from travellermap that d...

I’m looking at picking up the shadows of Sindal book. Do you still get the pdf when you purchase the hardcopy? What about the Reach adventures, do those hard copies come with a pdf?

As a side question is there anywhere in the 2e rules that determine the size of gas giants? I couldn’t find any after a quick search.

Re: Jumping away from gas giants

The -4 DM for jumping within 100 diameter still really sets the bar at rolling an 8. That’s standard difficulty. Is this something g that may actually be happening more in universe than previously realised?

Re: Jumping away from gas giants

The reason I asked is that gas giant seem to be vast but have different gravity than planets would their size it at least that’s the conclusion I came to looking over the tables.
