Re: Jumping away from gas giants

Same goes for stars. Yep. Which can be problematic. Take a look at the red giant in Acrid/Trojan Reach and tell me where to place the mainworld. If you place it in the habitable zone, it's still weeks away by manoeuvre drive. You can place Acrid in the outer system, but that makes its corrosive atm...

Re: Deepnight Revelation errors

One nice thing about cracking the PDFs is I can fix the errata myself if I want. I don’t bother with the printed books. In my case I *MUCH* prefer the printed books, I read the PDFs only when I lack access to my books (as shown above: I remembered the three hangars but not the specific text you poi...

Re: Deepnight Revelation errors

Expansion Book 4 p. 86 (87 of PDF) – “hanger space for 600 tons of craft”. The hull has 600 tons of hanger space, which accommodates 300 tons of craft. The cruiser has three of those hangars, for a grand total of 900 tons of craft. p. 75/76. Pretty sure the Tenzig Class Exploration Vessel doesn’t n...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2020

GOOD! :D But I have two questions: 1): Our primary goals for 2021 are: • Bring a new Graphic Artist on board and get them trained up. Rest assured I *LOVE* the art, but what about a full-time dedicated editor instead? :) 2): And if you are in the EU, you can get everything in Euros... When? Any gues...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] GeDeCo presences

Reach Adventure 5: The Borderland Run, page 12-13-more, says GeDeCo owns the spaceports at Exe and Falcon, and "more or less controls Sperle".

GeDeCo is also "a silent partner" in the privately operated starport at Exocet (The Borderland, page 23).

They are on their way to our warehouse and we are just waiting for delivery - will make an announcement as soon as we have news!
Done Order #100022116 for this and Drinaxian Companion right now, is the "Printed Release Date: October" the same for both?

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

The Kronshtadt class actually was a Soviet sub-hunter of the immediate post-war phase in the Fourties and Fifties as well as an abandoned battlecruiser class project from 1939-1941. You're right, it's because I had only the word "Kronstadt" in mind, Kotlin Island was a Swedish possession until 1703...

No problem, I'm not worried at all (thanks for your fast email too :D ), but this raises a point: I'm fully willing to pay extra money for a Tracking Number™, why Mongoose can't use tracked mail for orders? :?

Disperse Sand seems to be a Free Action, there is no text limiting you from using sand in the same round as you attack or PD. (...) You can only attack once per turret, so only one attack on boarders, but you could degrade an incoming laser attack and disperse chaff in the same round . You guessed ...
