Re: High and Dry - Project Steel?

Agreed. I dont have the old Scout Ship to compare, but High and Dry is fun.

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. Something to due with licensees and/or canon. So I’m afraid you are out of luck.

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Well, I cant go for it unless the Ihatei go that way, so we will see what happens. I do want to run Ihatei! as the next “main” adventure, if I can ever get them out of Acrid. I think my main adversion to the Hierate adventures are the rididulous clan names. Going to need nicknames I can keep track o...

Re: Question on the 100D jump limit

I think we are more or less on the same page, Phavoc. Some sort of organization is desirable. I don’t think there is a safety issue with ships jumping into the same general area. There is obviously some variation in where you come out of jumpspace, and spaceships, even the biggest ones, are incredib...

Another stellar navigation question:

The Mongoose supplement for the Inurin system describes it as a trinary system, with a yellow-white main sequence star orbited by two red dwarfs, with each star having it's own orbiting bodies. Most of the system's planets orbit the main star, but one of the dwarves also has an inhabited planet, and...

Re: Question on the 100D jump limit

My assumption is the astrogation check is the means of deciding where you exit jumpspace. The idea that the planet itself would pull the ship out of jump early is a good one but without having every planet mapped I’ve always averaged travel time to any location on the surface from the exit point. W...

Question on the 100D jump limit

So a 100 diameter boundary around a planet isn't a fixed point, but rather a very large globe surrounding the planet. How do you treat this in your games? I believe past materials have referenced that it is frowned upon to come out of jump space with any velocity, so a ship is expected to slow to a ...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Good stuff, although the accepted term is "consulting fee". "Bribe" is so gauche. Sounds like your crew combined good sense with just the right amount of risk. Did they negotiate the amount, or just straight up offer MCr5? I've got a bunch of risk taking cat haters in my group, so Ihatei! will be in...

Re: How would it work?

It wouldn’t. The imperium wouldnt send a fleet into a recognized power on a pirste hunting mission.

Admiral Krond: “Can I go catch chase pirates in the Borderlands and Drinax subsectors?”

Duke of Tobia: “No.”

End of adventure.

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: Who shot the missile in Lions of Thebu

I haven’t played the adventure, but your ideas are all good ones. I’d suggest looking at from the standpoint of what do you need down the road? If a rich douche hunter will be a useful npc/patron/villain down the road, go with that. If a young reckless Aslan 3rd son will help you with the Aslan adve...

As a devoted Mongoose Traveller fan who has been very vocal in my criticisms regarding not correcting errata, let me say THANK YOU for posting the corrected Companion.

Of course, in the OTU, a 40-year, 4% interest loan on a depreciating asset used for an extremely high risk venture is the norm, so. . .

Re: Would The bank agree

If you ignore everything other than the last sentence, you can get to the auestion. Answer: Not a slam dunk. A 75% loan-to-value ratio, which you have, is a reasonable request of a bank when collateral is a secondary source of repayment. In other words, a bank needs to be very comfortable that there...

Yes, I terpret it as one high deck for the same reason. Kulthea, I think your estimate roughly matches the picture, so run with that. Not that you really need the cargo deck to be right for a boarding action (although it could be fun in zero-g, and people could be hiding in the captured ships). Let ...

Re: Large Scout Ships?

High Guard 2e makes a similar comment about the Kokirrak 200,000 ton dreadnought as it does the Lightning class. No idea what the Scout service would do with a ship that large.
