Re: Hoping For New Legend Books In 2017

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...

Re: Quick Starts and other adventure conversion query!

Has anyone tried running the new quick start using Legend? Currently thinking of altering it. A renegade warrior with a grudge against the Player Character's settlement leads a group of bandits raiding their settlement, but foolishly decides to hide within the ruins of an ancient city. Unknown to hi...

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?

Re: Social Media as Story Element?

Re: Pre-Order the Traveller Starter Box Set

I do admit wondering what they were thinking when they started saying they were pimping this out! I assumed they'd make the three books of lbb in size so the box would be smaller with a map folded up inside similar to the earlier box sets for Traveller. Have yet to read, listen or watch a review of ...

Re: Starter Kit Book 1 as a separate item?

Back during Mongoose Traveller 1e I eventually bought the others a copy of the pocket rulebook to speed up character generation by email.
Any chance of a Pocket core rulebook version of 2e Traveller being planned?
