Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

I think so too. The book could use a bit moving around some pages and adding more bookmarks in the PDF, I think. Back to errata: ]Rorix Command Vessel, p. 191: The ship is missing entries on "Software" completely. Cestion Strike Boat, p. 195. The ship is missing entries on "Software" completely. Als...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Mentioning Hroal Irontooth’s psion accomplice, is it possible some mistake was made in the writing and Dai Kinnear was supposed to be the Psion and her Aslan captain actually be Hroal? I was wondering the same thing. After all, an Aslan outcast pirate and his psion accomplice is a specific set-up. ...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

I have a different problem with the PDFs: Some pages are layed out in such a way that the text crosses into the ornamental bars beneath. That makes about the lower 1/8th of the page illegible. It's plain weird, too.

Re: maneuver drives no fuel?

Yes, it is. I'm just not used to space and atmospheres change a lot of things. I get stupid too, sometimes.

Re: Pioneer Class Scout for Roll20 and VTT

Someday I have got to learn how to get this stuff set up in Roll20. Unless VTT is available for Mac now... I fail at that, too. I'd be happy to get some hints and learn new tricks. We're doing an almost weekly game of Pirates of Drinax these days and it's a blast. But I'd like to integrate maps more.

Re: maneuver drives no fuel?

This contra-grav or anti-grav technology is why I sometimes struggle with large ships in Traveller. It feels strange to imagine a dreadnought being as fast as the Sindalian Harrier from Pirates of Drinax. On the other hand, I can live with that, since it's supported throughout both the system and th...

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

Yes, I was wondering about that, too. The adventure PDFs are interrupting the first set of rumours from the last and the following Central Supply Catalogue. That looks like a bad insertion during edit.

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

You bet I will! But my group is only 2/3 through Honour Among Thieves, so the Rorix can wait. I'm thinking about including one in The Treasure of Sindal. I'm waiting for Shadows of Sindal to decide what's going to happen when and if, though.

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

Page 195, the Cestion Strike Boat: The fluff text box speaks of gunners, but the crew roster mentions none. Also, a captain is named in the fluff, but not in the roster, although an astrogator is listed, but not named in fluff. Additionally, it's called a boat and consequently has not j-drive. It al...

Re: Drinaxian Compnaion

That is strange, a previously released PDF version named the ship 'Marduk Lightfoot'. The sentence goes: "Maris has secured the services of the Marduk Lightfoot , [...]" It seems a still older version made it into the Drinaxian Companion? Man, I hope the Companion gets updated as a PDF and the print...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

So basically the writer was trying to turn Sindal into the Peoples Republic Of China In Spaaaaaaaace . This nicely explains why the Sindalian Empire was ruled by autocratic "(Star) Dragon Emperors", although with some Scandinavian influences ("Kronshtadt Class Pursuit Ship" and, obviously, Sindal )...

Adobe deleted 250+ fonts from its repository in the last update, due to ending license agreements. Maybe that's really the problem?

Re: Do Torpol have TL 8 or B?

The problem with the PoD book is that it was built upon the foundation of the MgT1 version of the same campaign. They made a lot of nice additions, obviously, but a few anachronisms were left in. My take on it is that travellermap is canon and you can cross reference it to get the right stats. Indi...
