Re: Journal of the Travellers' Aid Society - Kickstarter is Live!

I've read only a few articles of the Free Sample so far, but I have two suggestions: 1): As a Italian native, I say "Simone Garibaldi" is basically wrong (the name, NOT the article). In Italy, "Simone" is a male name (women here use "Simon a "), and "Garibaldi" is a fairly rare surname (and usually ...

Does your accessibility sofrware require the older browser? This. I have Firefox 56.0, the last version supporting the old Add-on I've linked above.

Re: State of the Mongoose 2018

OK, I've seen your Facebook post :D , but I have different questions: 1): What's the page count of the new Aliens of Charted Space books? The old books had 100+ pages even after removing the Sector chapter, but I doubt we'll see a 400-or-500-pages-long hardback series anytime soon... 2): It's a mont...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Why were Admiral Peras' couriers, carrying these urgent message globes, only capable of Jump-1? No, they had Jump-2 minimum. The reason for the 'short' jump to Thebus is recorded in the black box (page 129): "The courier jumped from Noricum to this system, hoping to rendezvous with an escort flotil...

Re: Element Cruisers Shipping

I would really like to run one of these naval campaigns. It's a big challenge but I think it could be a lot of fun. An opportunity to have Traveller meet Star Trek a bit. Practice makes perfect I'm sure. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/star-trek-2019-books?hmb_source=navbar&hmb_medium=product_ti...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

I could deny the use of the pocket warship, either by Oleb getting irritated with them, or some mechanical issue, but I’d prefer to avoid such forced measures. Denying the players their hard-gained battleship is pretty unfair, this reminds me of those D&D dungeons where your high-level characters w...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Do they still have the treasure ship? The Hrakoea may take great pleasure in the mighty imperium treasure ship be used to haul Aslan cattle. On second thought, only pirates would have that ship, so maybe not. But in book 2, page 192, you find this: "Ahroay’if traders looked suspiciously at Hrakoea ...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

What do we know about Khusai? First, you need to decide what's happened to the former inhabitants of Banks. Are they still living there as awkhea serfs or got exterminated/deported early? If these Aslan can coexist peacefully with their new subjects, cooperation with Drinaxians is clearly possible....

They have been corrected, just the books haven't been updated.
Let me guess: are you planning a new "High Guard" book with revised stats, redrawn deckplans (the micro-thrusters of the Kinunir were hilarious! :lol: -page 160-) and added stuff?

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Admiral Darokyn's backstory?

Try the political backstory. Deneb sector is a mess of political (and worse... ) infighting, Darokyn could be an exiled noble from Inar or Vincennes, defeated in war but still popular with his supporters, as you said. This also explains why Imperial Intelligence trusts him (noble rank DOES count in ...

Re: Primitive and Advanced Spacecraft.

- No increased range on energy weapons (...). Increasing the range one band for a 10% increase in weapon price would be the standard if it were available. Wait a minute, my High Guard book says: "Long Range requires two Advantages and may only be applied once" (page 49), it's a +25% here, not +10%.

Re: Primitive and Advanced Spacecraft.

Reducing the size of a Jump Drive also seems somewhat redundant when you can save way more space by reducing the fuel required. Used that once on a Marava-class trader. We wanted Thrust 2, so got a Size Reduction 1 J-drive, a Size Reduction 2, Thrust 2 M-Drive and 1 ton of batteries (in the deckpla...

By the way, is there anything similar to D&D monstrous manual or Alternity Alien Compendium published for Traveller? Something with strange aliens that you could throw in on players.
