Re: Traveller Adventure Idea

Been looking at possible sub plots, but those need players to work properly. Wondering at the variety of possibilities to explain what's going on then tried my hand at character creation. Came up with a 42 year old Citizen/Worker who hailed from a fishing community run by a Corporation who went to u...

Traveller Adventure Idea

Been hankering after Traveller but really want to run in the T2300 setting. The idea I've come up with so far is that an expedition has been sent to mining outpost near a remote colony. The Corporation in charge is seemingly focused on some ruins located within the system, but part of the way there ...

Re: Quick Intro Adventure

Okay do they have their own characters or are you pre-generating them? They're part of a survey team sent to Europa to run routine maintenance and perform tests on the facility their corporation has built there. It looks like a submarine pen with three mini-subs and is designed into the icy surface ...

Attempted Traveller 2nd Edition Character Creation

Apologies for the below its been awhile since I last tried this and wanted to check in case I missed anything.

Re: Ideas for A Story

I'm more inclined towards a Mass Effect meets Star Wars and Babylon V, but this IS Traveller after all! Humanity has spread to the stars however an intriguing mystery is unveiled as in addition to various alien races they also encounter near human and actual human species that never even went anywhe...

Re: What's Traveller5 like?

I think the second edition of Mongoose was mostly to limit the maximum number of skills a character has well that's the impression I got! :oops: Have a copy of Traveller the New Era still, mostly out of curiosity as I've never managed to figure out that particular edition. Must admit to being curiou...

The point is that until this specific delivery was broken open and drunk all the others were deliberately emptied then disposed of properly so she had no idea they were poisoned.

The idea is that it was brought aboard against her wishes and escaped notice because she was assigned aboard at the last moment so neither the crew nor those loading the ship were aware of her dislike of vodka. Part of the mystery would reveal she had received similar deliveries ever since she start...

Psion Groups

How do you handle this? For instance you have a group of Inquisitors possessing psionic abilities trained to hunt down and either capture or kill those with psionic abilities let alone threaten the empire they serve. Their empire is toppled forcing many to flee rather than face justice for their act...

Re: PSION detection

So either the Zhodani Embassy is lending a hand or some other organisation with access to Psion's or psionic research to know what they're doing.
Either way the players should know these things exist before kiboshing their characters with no in game reason?

Re: How to ensure the villain escapes no matter what

Have them called away before they can finally meet learning through intercepted communications or conversations about the bbeg leaving them an opening to place a tracker so they can follow the villain to his boss?
