Victory at Sea Update

Hi everyone, It looks like the State of the Mongoose this year will be delayed until January, because reasons, so I wanted to update you all on where we are with Victory at Sea. First off, no way round this... we promised it would be ready before the end of the year, and it won't (sorry, Brass!). Ha...

Cheers for this, much appreciated - you should see most/all of this coming in the next update (which will have a fair ton of new material!).

Heh! I've just noticed the book has an Index. Is this just for this book, or an Index for the whole corebook line so far?
Hmm... Would that be useful?

Re: Armor Factors

And your point about making a system to handle all kinds of variations is spot-on. But it also sidesteps the original question - how does something so tiny get the same level or protection as something 1,000x it's size? Well that depends on your setting - and you are absolutely within your rights t...

Re: Armor Factors

I am actually looking for a simple method, but also one that recognizes common sense. Referee fiat.There is no other way. We are not looking to limit players or produce ships for a pure Third Imperium setting in High Guard (or any of the core books, for that matter). It has to be able to handle all...

Re: 2e vehicle guide, or no-one at Mongoose can sail

The last time I went sailing, I was 16 years old and my boatmate (?) nearly fell overboard on a perfectly calm lake... We could obviously do a lot of rules governing sailing, but this is Traveller - the amount of times it may come up during a game means it is not worth going into detail in a core bo...

You will be able to pick up the PDF edition and pre-order the printed edition (getting the PDF for free) before we all break for Christmas. In the meantime, this is how the contents page is shaping up... https://preview.redd.it/c3hklzad2v...

Re: Cruisers vs a Single Battleship

Hmm... My problem with this... Battleships have two very big vulnerabilities - torps and aircraft. Balanced fleets should have the capability to take them on. My first reaction would be to have a battleship limitation _only_ in competitive (let's say Matched Play) games. What would you think of that?
