How did the Circle go?

I’m a little curious since I haven’t heard much chatter about it- how did the The Circle Convention go at Mongooses offices in Swindon last weekend? What was the turnout and mix of games like?

Tech Level Asymmetric Warfare

What options are available in the rules for waging successful warfare against a much higher tech level? (aka the Ewoks vs Stormtroopers problem) I'm writing a scenario in which a bunch of numerically superior monks (40) without weapons may need to overcome an occupying force of 8 pirate vargr with a...

2nd Ed Point Buy system for Char gen?

So as a GM who runs convention games of Traveller (mostly at UK TravCon) one thing I found very useful for MgT 1st Ed was the point buy system to quickly put together pregen PC's without going through the whole character gen process whilst keeping the points fairly fair. Is there a 2nd Ed point buy ...

Solomani Confederation in the Hard Times/New Era?

Did the Solomani Confederation suffer a 'Short Dusk'/ Long Night during the collapse of the 3rd Imperium? (1120-1200ish)

Or did it stay as a functioning, mutually supporting government during the period the Imperium fell apart?

Thx

I had assumed the voucher would be for a DriveThru POD book, or direct from the Mongoose store.

Re: A New Edition of Traveller

Matt- can you change the description in the DriveThru sites Beta Playtest decription to say that the $20 voucher only applies to the rulebook PDF and not any POD or other hardcopy? I thought that it did (it just says rulebook and doesnt specify PDF) , so I'm asking for a refund from DriveThru. Thx S...

Re: A Day in the life of Emperor Strephon

I ran a con game in which you could play him (and Dulinor, Iphagenia, Norris and Varian/Lucan called Eve of Rebellion. Piecing together a lot of his stuff comes from a lot of different books and periods (much of it is revealed in later time periods such as TNE or even Out of the Darness). I had him ...

Starship combat cheat sheet & Questions?

First, is there a cheat sheet with all the options listed for Space Combat? I've seen references to a Yahoo group MGT-aids, but none of the links seem to work for it any more. Secondly, reading through the rule book I've been struck by some questions- A Commander can initially modify the ships Initi...

Re: Good ship for Vargr pirates?

I'm thinking of a small fighter swarm might be a useful challenge - a 2 turret Fast Trader (1 turret with Beam laser and Sandcaster, second turret with Pulse laser and Sandcaster) vs. 2-3 Light fighters armed with Pulse lasers and maybe a single Basic missile each, starting at long range? What would...

Physics & powered slingshot question?

OK, planning a game, and my astrophysics is non-existent, so I thought I'd ask. The objective is a very fast moving object/Ancient Big Dumb Object that is moving across interstellar & system space at a noticable fraction of the speed of light (lets say 0.05c) . It has no jump drive, so you can jump ...

Re: Good ship for Vargr pirates?

Sorry, i was meaning by 1 turret, that they did have a weapon- a Pulse or Beam Laser perhaps in addition to the sandcaster.

Thx.

Good ship for Vargr pirates?

So, the PC crew of a Gagh class trader (or a Far Trader equivalent) with maybe 1 turret and a sandcaster need to fight off some villanous Vargr pirates in my game. What ship would be a good match for them for an exciting but balanced space battle?

Thx

Re: Alien Module Solomani- sold out?

Does the absence of Solomani (or any reprints of previously published books) from the new Release Schedule mean that AM: Solomani will remain out of print?

Is there any chance you could do POD from DriveThruRPG for such books if you are not going with print runs for them?

Re: Adventure 4: Into the Unknown - Now on Drivethru

I played this adventure with the author back in TravCon 2012 as a playtest and know it was submitted to Mongoose a few years ago. It was a wonderfully touching game of exploration and discovery. No to little combat, but doing proper Scouting of strange new worlds. Really nice piece or work and syste...

Did AM:Solomani get re-printed Matt? I'm still having difficulty sourcing it? Doesnt show up in the Mongoose shop either.
