Re: So...about State of the Mongoose 2017...

Well, I can say a lot of that has been written! The Traveller Companion is written, edited, and just waiting for a) one more chapter and b) layout. The latter will be taking place just as soon as we get back from the winter break. Behind the Claw is in layout right now, and we are hoping to get the ...

Re: Civilian Carriers

Got word from the ONB on this - they are indeed Civilian. The change will be made in the next update, but go ahead and start playing them that way now.

Re: Devastating question

If a devastating weapon inflicts a critical hit, does it also inflict the critical effects of the lower levels of that critical score? So if a 4 is rolled does it inflict all the critical effects for levels 1, 2 & 3 as well? I think the answer here has to be no? There is Devastating, and then there...

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!

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 (...
