Re: High and Dry - Project Steel?

I believe it was published in printed form for the 1st Edition of Mongoose Traveller, but never in pdf. The 2nd edition version that you are looking for was never completed. https://paizo.com/products/btpy86xm?Project-Steel Paizo still has the product profile, but let's do a cut-and-paste: PROJECT ...

Re: Who shot the missile in Lions of Thebus?

Someone shot the Ihatei ship down, but who was it? One idea is that it was a hunting guild or gaming commission trying to prevent the Aslan from coming to Thebus, because it would ruin their business model. They saw the ship and acted quickly by shooting it down. That was my first idea, but with a ...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Where are the crown jewels of Sindal?

In "Honor among Thieves", there's a throwaway line about the crown jewels of the Sindalian Empire. Where are they? Maybe in Shadows of Sindal ? Shadows of Sindal is a three-part adventure that takes place in the region around Noricum, the old capital of the Sindalian Empire. (...) In Part 3: Prince...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Our travellers, unfortunately have made one potentially fatal mistake. A representative from PRQ’s liaison office on Acrid’s GeDeCo highport has arrived first, departing in a PRQ owned ship (via a dummy corporation to disguise ownership) during the initial assault. *This PRQ rep is short on details...

What's happened to the two survivors in Grand Central Station? 2): The Vespexers are natives of Drinax, a Size 4...

Re: The Traveller Companion - PDF & Pre-Order

The Colonial Upbringing “graduation” states: “Gain any two other skills listed above at level or increase one skill already possessed by one level.” I assume that should be “at level 0”. Also, There are ten Level 0 skills listed above. How many do you get pre-graduation? Taken literally, you get al...

Re: The Traveller Companion - PDF & Pre-Order

In the Believer career (p. 36-37), Rank 5 and 6 (and the SOC bonus) are the same for two different assignments (Mainstream Believer and Missionary/Humanitarian). Is this intentional?

The printed edition will be sent off in January, so we have 2-3 weeks to catch any issues. Printing will likely take 3-ish months after that.
Do you know if the preorders will be mailed before Hard Brexit Day (29 March)?

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

You need *FIVE* codes, every globe has:

1): 1/5 of the configuration code;
2): the word ACE;
3): a string of co-ordinates with the location of the secret base (where you find 1/5 of the code and the jump solution for the Ace system).

Hope this helps.

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Coreward Hierate clan map

Your map is definitely MORE useful than those from The Source Of Truth™, I hate those (AsEtc. x 20) codes Travellermap uses. Two more things: 1): The various "Vassal Clan" planets in Tlaiowaha subsector (and beyond, maybe) could become "Ahroay'if Vassal Clan" worlds with no loss in realism. After al...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Coreward Hierate clan map

And here's the quandary: travellermap lists Hliyh as governed by a "single multiple-world clan." If that's not the Ahroay'if, I'm not sure who it would be in Tlaiowaha subsector. Travellermap is the official Source Of Truth™, but its raw data often need some creative adaptation. Never checked the m...

Re: [Pirates of Drinax] Coreward Hierate clan map

In recent centuries, trade with the Imperium has made the Tlaiowaha even richer. Their Ahroay’if vassals have also grown rich and powerful, and *fat and lazy* , on their cut of the profits. I doubt the Ahroay’if clan controls the worlds once owned by the Glorious Empire in Goertel subsector, they h...

Batteries are excellent to accumulate low Power for some time to give high Power for a short spike, e.g. to power a jump drive.
Yeah, I had this on mind, can't believe only the Express Boat uses batteries for the Jump drive.

Re: Standard vs. custom design: Where do you draw the line?

- do you fix the power issues inherent in some of the designs? Basically all default designs are inefficient, and have always been (except small LBB2 designs).

Re: [Drinax] What do the people on the floating palace do?

Does the palace keep a local time independent of daylight ( most people are always indoors anyway )? THIS, in my opinion. Besides the Very Thin atmosphere, I suspect clear days are a rarity in 'post-apocalyptic' Drinax: Ever since the Ahroay’if bombed Drinax from orbit, the planet’s weather has bee...
