Why not? Guglielmo Marconi extracted gold from seawater (see here and the "Cosa le ha lasciato suo padre?" question here), maybe Bessler too discovered something incredible, who knows? :)

Re: Updated High Guard Ships

Serpent: Total Cost: MCr 41.62 Maintenance Cost, Annual: MCr 41.62 × 0.1% = MCr 0.04162 Maintenance Cost, Monthly: MCr 0.04162 / 12 = MCr 0.00346833 = Cr 3468.33 Seems correct to me? Who said it's wrong? It's only I can intuitively grasp "(Cr)3468.33" MUCH better than "(MCr)0.00346833", the zeros a...

Re: Updated High Guard Ships

Those 16 tons for the Multi-Environment Space in the Safari Ship (page 46) are for *two* different 7-tons-cargo-space + 1 ton-environmental-equipment Multi-Environment Spaces, am I right? Do you can use a Multi-Environment Space as an additional/regular cargo hold?

Re: State of the Mongoose 2019

There will be no ‘small scale’ Kickstarter (...) in 2020 Does this mean we'll see ' *big* scale' Kickstarter(s) in 2020, or NOTHING Kickstarter-related whatsoever? Reach Adventure 7: Last Train Out of Rakken-Goll Can't find "Rakken-Goll" on Travellermap. Where is located, and who is the author?

Re: Is there a comprehensive 2nd ed Errata?

39. Pg 207. Why do Passage costs leap hugely when travelling 6 parsecs? Also, Low Passage is more expensive than Basic Passage at 5 and 6 Parsecs travelled, is this intentional? * It is an oddity of ship design - we all questioned it during playtesting, but the maths are solid (big, big spreadsheet...

Re: [Deepnight Revelation] Tobia-To-Demnan Route

I think that's a good analysis of the route. Thanks! :mrgreen: Whether they go through Hierate or Florian space depends a bit on the diplomatic capabilities of the senior crew and what the referee wants to prepare (or gloss over). Since there is a presence at Demnan, there might be a negotiated rou...

[Deepnight Revelation] Tobia-To-Demnan Route

That would require exiting Charted Space through the Aslan Hierate.... In the Campaign Guide, page 90, MJD says the transit from Tobia to Marshalling Point Demnan "is around 220 parsecs, a voyage that will take perhaps 20 months" . Nothing in the book hints at WHERE exactly you're supposed to go, h...

Re: Behind the Claw

We have to check the pricing on this one - it would normally be $49.99 like the other Traveller hardbacks, but it is a fair bit larger so we have to talk to the beancounters to see if that needs to change. Yes, I had my doubts :lol: :wink: , but this delay is a good thing, I already know the kickst...
