Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

First off, the Anti-Missile System is not strictly a weapon, though it can be used as such - it is assumed it has a 360 degree arc. As for missiles and torpedoes, it is assumed that while they fire from a fixed mount (think of the vertical racks of missiles you see on some ships, for example), they ...

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

The second sensor system is indeed for underwater use, and the lasers do indeed use the turrets.

Re: What happened to the Range Charts?

Also, judging from the past of Travellers design, and the new trend, I highly doubt they will get that granular with the rules. The bane/boon mechanic is an easy shortcut to applying situational modifiers. Yes, this. You really don't want us writing exception rules for every possible eventuality. U...

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

From the instructions I think that the range is increased by the increments of 10 and 20 times. Can the range be increased in increments other than 10 and 20? No, 10 and then 100 times - however, this is one of those areas that a ref is completely in his rights to approach differently. If you have ...

Re: Hardened Bridge?

Use the Hardened rules in the new High Guard - and remember, a Computer is no longer on the Bridge (it is distributed throughout the ship).

Re: Hardened Bridge?

I would be happy with a Bridge being Hardened (in fact, I have a feeling we have done just that ourselves on some recent ships we have been working from...).

1. If you wish to make that change, you have our blessing.
2. Yes, use the Rail Rider modification.

We did stats for that under the original VHB :)

Re: Vehicle Size Thoughts

So the stats are really more guidelines then actual rules... Yes, this, absolutely. When working on vehicles, we started hitting exception after exception after exception. We could have had a crack at including them all, but we knew one of you would simply come up with a concept for a vehicle that ...

Re: "Starter" box set, whats in it?

Oh, and one new note on this...

There was so much information we wanted to pack into this set that we have moved up from LBB size to full size! Think of the original starter set, but with much thicker books and a complete campaign!

I haven't looked too closely at TAS yet, but I take it High Guard, CSC and Vehicle Handbook are allowed to use, quote, build from and publish?
They are indeed!

Re: Light Cannon

When designing vehicles for the book, I knew there was vast potential for many, many weapons across the TLs. After all, if you are doing a bunch of tanks, you will want a different main gun at TL6 and TL8 (though you can go a long way with variant ammo types from CSC, granted). Always thought this w...

Re: (Directed) Plasma Ammo AP?

Both the directed plasma and plasma ammo (CSC pages 139 & 141) grant AP x3/x2. But what about weapons that don't have an AP trait? Surely plasma ammo will give non-AP weapons AP potential, yes? This will always be down to the ref, but my take on it would be that such weapons may not have the base p...

Re: Vehicle Handbook: Questions, errors, clarifications

Needs additional cargo, passenger, crew, etc. 6 spaces unused. Okay, BIG point to make here :) Remember, 1 Space is used for a passenger strapped into a seat in a car - you can use more Spaces per passenger to give them room to move around. You will see this pop up time and again on vehicles in the...

Re: Vehicle Handbook: Questions, errors, clarifications

. And it's weird that there are 425 crew members, but enough bunk space for only 20 to sleep at one time. Those are dedicated bunk spaces, as in permanent sleeping arrangements. Most of the crew have to live with slinging a hammock between a couple of the cannon. And yes, this one is supposed to be...
