Re: What happened to Zero-G?

Interesting idea, been watching the Expanse and their use of Vacc Suits.
I still think there's a place for the zero g skill perhaps a new Athletics speciality instead of Dexterity?

Re: What happened to Zero-G?

So someone who spent two decades working in the depths of space is less capable in zero g than the Olympic athlete who has never left his home world his entire life? Using the Vacc Suit skill might help, but what was the reason for this change? I admit I was more annoyed they swapped out Social from...

Re: Traveller Starter Set - on Drivethru!

Someone on another forum has asked a very good question. Will the campaign in Book 3 be made available to purchase as a separate entity for those who already have the CRB2e? I'm also curious about this but I'm still waiting for a review that makes me want to buy this! So far what information I've b...

Re: Traveller Starter Set - on Drivethru!

How does it compare to the core rulebook?

Can it be used without it?

How does it feel to you?

Re: Traveller Starter Set - on Drivethru!

Looks interesting, a bit pricey but the reviews should hopefully demonstrate it's worth it.

Mass Effect Andromeda Question

Sorry but this involves spoiler (sort of) so please be careful okay? Just got thinking about the AI in that game and the opening got me wondering what if the AI actually is linked to the wife of an important NPC who is in cryo aboard the PCs inherited ship, so its actually she who he's conversing wi...

Re: Mars Preparation Question

The more i think about the more i wonder what if my party of PCs find themselves in charge of a crashed spaceship that's spent those intervening years fixing itself only to have a descendant of its surviving crew come aboard and accidentally reactivate it? How many players would choose to just take ...

Re: Mars Preparation Question

Okay the way I'm currently thinking is that the Earth was originally intended as a Safari Preserve but it was turned into a refuge after a genocidal war almost wiped out humanity. Falling back to barbaric times their civilisation had to rebuild itself losing most of their knowledge of their past in ...

Just how far is too far?

I've been wondering about a game idea that i think stretches things a bit too much. The idea I'm trying to work out involves the discovery of the jump drive but not the traditional travel between star systems version. The short explanation is that a multi-national attempt to develop the first workin...

Re: Mars Preparation Question

How would they react if say one of the other nations was sending a probe there? By that I assume they have no idea anything has been discovered but its noted they're heading for an area close enough that it would be hard for them to miss the obvious signs? Would they panic and accelerate the mission...

Re: Mars Preparation Question

Now imagine NASA discovered proof that Mars had been inhabited maybe even what they assume is a crashed spaceship revealed after a Martian dust storm? How would they handle that revelation? Would they keep it a secret and establish a mission to investigate or just classify it and then conveniently f...

Mars Preparation Question

Been watching the National Geographic Mars series now released over here on dvd and it got me wondering. How difficult would it be to establish a modular space station in Mars orbit? Would it be easier to tether it to one of Mars moons? It's just they mentioned the difficulty of slowing down from su...
