Re: Grappling Question

Right, so continue the grapple is an outcome from winning the opposed check. It's the last bullet in "one of the following". Also, Initiating a grapple is a melee attack, therefore a significant action and its also subject to initiative. I don't think I would give a boon or any other advantage to in...

Re: Grappling Question

Unless I've been doing it wrong, if the character had melee(blade)-2, he would also have melee-0 for the rest of the melee specialties, so no -3 penalty.

Re: Behind the Claw - Now in Stock!

I downloaded the updates today, and while the maps are clearer, the errors that are fixed in the hardcopy are still there in the PDF - see 0605 Algebastor and the line artifact at 0805 Narval on the Spinward Marches map as examples. (BTW the physical maps are great! I'm glad you decided to go with t...

Re: maneuver drives no fuel?

Keep in mind that if it's the m-drive that gives you inertial dampening and not the ship's hull, then reaction engines at 16 g is, let's say a tad uncomfortable.

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

More Drinaxian Companion Errata (and now I'm done, I think - got to the last page anyway). Warning: I go on a little, um, I wouldn't say "rambling tirade" really, but… you be the judge, on the PWH, but I do get to a recommendation. I think I removed comments that didn't provided additional informati...

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

*sigh* this is why I usually wait until I'm done to post all the errors. The heading on the table (still page 35) says: "Gas Gaints" Gas Giants Since I'm not trying to spike my post count, I'll hold off with any others and dump them in a single post.....

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

To continue with errata:
p. 35 the chart on the bottom has Theev as TL E; it should be F.
And on the map, Palindrome should have water, so it should be a blue world.

Is there an errata file? I have a hardcopy but didn’t get a PDF at the time.

Re: Behind the Claw

Thanks for the update Matt!

I'm hoping to see mine soon (it was an Elements add-on from two years ago... so well, I pre-paid). Did you get a chance to see if the maps on the Drive-thru PDFs can be updated?

Does the pdf apply if I bought it from amazon? I should have thought about buying it from Mongoose for the pdf.
Don't know, but it never hurts to ask Matthew about it.

Re: Help Needed on Cold Weather Gear

There is a section of Survival Gear that covers cold weather protection in the Central Supply Catalog, mostly increasing the amount of time until the effects of cold weather begin to be an issue or providing protection down to -60C. But more importantly, if you bought the hard copy of the CSC, you s...

Re: What damages can be expected after interior exposure to vacuum?

In the scenario of being in a jump bubble, I'm not sure what happens with temperature when you turn off the life support. Obviously, in this scenario, with the power plant still running, the ship will generate heat. How does thermodynamics work in jump space? I could argue that the heat from the shi...

Re: The Beyond: A Revision

Messing with smallcraft left me wondering how cheap you can make a ship in Traveller. Turns out about Cr 160,000, if you want to drive a rocket and solar powered planetoid rubble-pile from a cockpit. But that's the extreme. You can do quite a bit with 10-ton ships, and so here are a gaggle created f...

Alternative Deepnight Revelation secondary ships

Re: The Beyond: A Revision

Stayed up too late and wasted too much rainy Saturday making three Storm Knight careers. I even did double columns for part of it so it looks a lot like a Mongoose career page, but that didn't take in blogger. There is no good way to recreate the tables without doing a bunch of images, though, so I'...
