Re: Deepnight Revelation - GMs Thread

I skimmed the adventure and it seems to me that it is not so easy to reconcile with the background of the campaign. I have no idea where this technically so advanced civilisation could have come from. And then there's the transporter you mentioned: In Traveller, this indicates an extremely high TL....

Re: Deepnight Revelation - GMs Thread

Encounters with more advanced civilisations? In the campaign, the crew of the Deepnight Revelation only encounters civilisations that are technically inferior to them, usually significantly so (the Ancients don't count!). I am toying with the idea of having them meet at least one civilisation that ...

Robot brains can be put in vehicles or ships.
As seen in The Fall of Tinath, you can have robot brains in 'biological units' too. Does this book have a chapter for 'bioshells' and biomechanical options?

Yes, I see you joined the Marketplace (added your Link to my browser for future reference). But does this mean you're sending Tracked Mail orders from somewhere inside the EU?

Re: Travellers Needed - Core Rulebook Reprint

I genuinely wasn't looking for a fight. It's important to keep up with general social expectations in order to stay relevant. Traveller has to sell into the future, and not die out with the grognards as younger people dismiss it feeling it hasn't adapted to broad cultural changes and expected socia...
