Re: The Traveller Companion - It Exists!

We have a fair battery of eyes to go over Traveller books these days, but we may be in touch!

Re: The Traveller Companion - It Exists!

Indeed - and I have good news...

The main manuscript is completely, done, edited, dusted! I am just working on some additional chapters that were requested, which should be complete later this week (or likely next), and then I will be fielding all questions!

We can confirm the release date, price and launch discount for Victory At Sea Pacific, and it's soon! The scariest part of the launch is hoping people will like it, you spen...

Re: Mongoose Publishing and Amazon UK IT FR DE ES

The POD system we are using is Drivethru - we have a lot of back catalogue books already converted, but with 600-odd titles, this is not a quick job by any stretch!

Re: The 3 book slipcase

Book 1 contains all the rules - so as well as the moving and fighting mechanics (which, you are right, are rules-lite), you also get submersibles, radar, aircraft, kamikaze units, coastal invasions, coastal craft and defences... lots more... Book 2 contains scenarios and history, while Book 3 has al...

Slightly off topic but can you put more US destroyers in the game? There are only 4 in the game and there are about 11 others that are missing.
I will look into that! Any preferences for what you would like to see as a priority?

Re: August Playtest Pack

As another observation, it takes a lot to scout. It takes a dozen scouts to reliably get the ability to stuff a carrier into deep deployment, and like thirty to get the ability to bring the scouts you have back onto the board. This is something I have been keeping my eye on - I would like to hear m...

Re: August Playtest Pack

There is a degree of 'wigglebility here' and, in terms of turn length, the difference may not be that massive for individual flights (no steam catapults or angled decks!). Given that aircraft are now free, I am less worried about the largest carriers getting everything off the deck during a battle (...

Re: 800 pts IJN vs. USN w/Carriers

Been humming and harring about the carrier/wind issues. At the moment, I am leaning towards keeping things as they are - I can see where you are coming from but we also need towards playability and not massively penalising someone just because they are on the wrong side of the table. As it stands, y...

Re: Victory at Sea Scenario playtest

I think Fighting retreat maybe a bit too easy. Its fairly straightforward to set your ships up on the table edge and sail straight off. Ah, quick note on this one - I have clarified that this counts as a Tactical Withdrawal, which means you have to do more damage to the enemy fleet than you will lo...

Re: Carriers and Aircraft

Bombers seem to be rubbish. Dive bombers and torpedo bombers are devastating. Bombers do 2DD with no AP. In our game we only scored two hits with planes. A torpedo bomber did 10 damage and blew a destroyer sky high. A bomber hit a destroyer and did one damage. Working as intended :) Level bombers i...
