Re: 2300AD - Any News?

Could always have it start offworld and eventually spill back to Earth like they occasionally do with the Gundam series?

Re: 2300AD - Any News?

Pardon my language but what if they successfully build a jump drive or a stutterwarp drive?

First to reach the orbit of say Mars then further?

How would people react, more importantly how would it be revealed if at all given the political climate?

Re: The potential reprecussions?

Here I was thinking what if the person in question is a member of a discriminated race but unlike many of their brethren they've walked away from their violent racist stereotypes that's all people remember. It's quite likely they've spent years rebuilding their lives posing as a member of another na...

Re: Ready Player One Query?

Been wondering about this. Eventually a wave of generation ships are sent out from Earth they start off colonising the rest of the solar system establishing bases where possible in preparation for the next advance. Eventually this involves leaving the solar system for another star system but dependa...

So what's stopping that player turning their estate into a literal Fortress where they can hangar their ship and supplies?

Re: Characters Height and Weight

Wasn't there something in T2300 about that? Page 89 of MongT 1st edition T2300 bases it on the homeworld gravity as a basis for starting height with +10 or -10% variation on this for both height & weight (85kg weight) with female deducting 10cm and 10kg off this. There's also traits that effect weig...

Re: Lost in Space?

And I was wondering what you would change if you ran this as a potential campaign? Given the solar system would they even leave it? What circumstances would you use to explain why humanity is jumping to other star systems? Would you reveal a literal Death Star or Beast Planet is heading for the Sola...

Lost in Space?

So are you watching this?
And have you wondered how it could be run as as actual game?

So the original series, the movie or the new Netflix series which one inspires you more?

Re: Starport defences

Should vary wildly. Some has minimal defences after all if you wasn't aware it existed why would you go there? Perhaps some former warship or freighters modified to function as part of the star port would still have some weapons that could be used? Then there's the wealthy systems or Corporations th...

Re: How do you handle time travel?

I was picturing a game set about the first jump drive. The original post involved a form of time travel taking advantage of the first "unofficial" actual successful jump drive which was the result of a stolen prototype maneuver drive intended for a Satellite probe but not the new American replacemen...

How do you handle time travel?

My question is to you hard science fiction buffs. Lets assume time travel is possible but there are definite consequences. Say a century or so from now a child prodigy comes up with a formulae that predicts a method of working time travel but the child seeing the problems and flaws decides to destro...

Quick Starts and other adventure conversion query!

Picked up the pdf of the Runequest Quick start immediately looked at porting it over to Legend.

Not keen on the pre-gens but with a couple of alterations it's certainly doable and have done something similar with some Pathfinder scenarios and I got wondering.

Have you done anything like this?
