Re: Aliens of Charted Space Vol. 1 - It Is Here!

Well, I don't know if we need a reason to hit Vargr with bats. It is the only way they will learn... We wanted to create a slightly greater spread between various alien races. This is only a slight dip - remember, characteristics do not work quite the same in Traveller as (say) traditional D&D-styl...

Re: JTAS Vol.4 Sensors questions

+8 sounds right. Remember that at this stage it’s just about detecting, not identifying or getting detailed readings. A ship using active jammers sends out massive amounts of signals to overwhelm enemy sensors, so it should be simple to see that something is out there, but it might be very difficul...

JTAS Vol.4 Sensors questions

Hi,

Page 40 details LPI and ELPI modification to sensors but there is no associated cost to implement them. Is it written somewhere else ? Did I miss something ?

Page 41 Detection mods : For jammers, shouldn't it be "-8" instead of "+8" ?

Thanks for your help.

Re: How long can a person survive in a low berth?

A T4 adventure (Sleepers, in Anomalies) is about finding thousands of pre-long night people laying in suspended animation ... 1628 years and 194 days since the last visit tells a robot.

Re: JTAS 5 - Page 124 - The great escape

So it appears. I'm sure they'll fix it for the final. The wording of the sentence, "For the sake of simplicity, the referee may simply determine the distance to the jump point and then double the escaping ship’s speed toward that point each round" is also faulty. It should say something to the effe...

JTAS 5 - Page 124 - The great escape

There is written :

"The first method uses the following equation:"

No equation after, but one above...maybe misplaced or a missing one ?

Hi Matthew,

Will there be a poster map of the Spinward Marches coming with the book ? Would be great.

There is a HUGE amount of new stuff :) Absolutely every word of the original has been checked, re-checked and, if necessary, revised. Deneb has been pretty much completely re-written, and there is a bulk hauler's worth of new material in the book. I mean, a lot. Just the new playable alien races al...

Re: Traveller Fiction

I read Chris Jackson's "A Warrior's Soul" and really enjoyed it. It takes place on a world that happens to be a key spot in the Drinax campaign, which made the story very relatable. Well written and fun. I've also read Martin Dougherty's "The Dimenos Problem," which was also great. Looking forward ...

Re: MGT1 Trade question

As far as I can tell the inclusion of the DMs for varying TLs in MgT2 only applies to Freight availability, not Buyer availability, as in MgT1. And this may be an indication that the Mgt1 DM's were not meant to apply in both directions. However, I personally think it makes sense that they would app...
