Re: State of the Mongoose 2019

Wow! Excited to heat that! That would be a huge step for Traveller. I always found artificial life to be underrepresented in Traveller. Probably since this topic wasn't as huge in the late 1970s as it became during the 1980s. There was a Robots sourcebook in Classic Traveller - Book 8 Robots. I thi...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2019

One thing I’ve asked for before, but I still don’t see anywhere being scheduled in the near future, is a Robots/A.I. book for Traveller. For me, I’d like it to be done in the same way we have a High Guard book for starships and the Vehicles book. That is, a book that gives you all the options for bu...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2019

The 2300AD box set will be my own personal highlight of 2020, but I’ve got a load of Traveller stuff coming from the various Kickstarters too. Look forward it it!

Re: Behind the Claw

Yep. The maps don't pop up at all on the iBooks Preview app. I can however read them fine on Adobe Acrobat. As a whole, the PDF needs to load a bit faster anyway.

Re: Any new updates on 2300AD?

Hey there, I will answer what I can! a) Previews are coming, but it will be easier to get to grips with, flow smoother in play, and look a lot nicer! b) No. c) The Traveller Core Rulebook will be required. d) We are indeed looking at an extended campaign. e) No miniatures planned, not sure what you...

Any new updates on 2300AD?

Been waiting for this for a while, but how long before the new edition gets a green light? Also/ a) What should we expect from the new edition in terms of content? What's new? What's different? b) Will it be Kickstarted? c) I've asked this before, but I'll do it again, will it be stand-alone from Tr...

Pretty pictures attracts nubes
D&D is played by nubes then.
D&D has pretty pictures, intuitive rules and a bunch of different settings to choose from. It's played by the majority of gamers.

Re: 2300AD speed using stutterwarp

A light year is the distance light travels in a vacuum in a year. The speed of light (rounded up) is 300,000,000 metres per second. Therefore, in a year, light travels 300,000,000 x 60 seconds x 60 minutes x 24 hours x 365.25 days = 9,467,280,000,000,000 metres. Times this by 7.7 and you get: 72,898...

Re: What's Traveller5 like?

What is it that makes T5 unplayable? In the original T5 edition, the book was littered with partial explanations of ideas, littered with errors and it was, in any case, difficult to digest as everything operated through coded acronyms and mathematical formula. It also tended to provide multiple sys...

Re: Characteristics of Zero?

Education on zero means you know nothing.
Social Standing of Zero means you have no bearing in any social interaction based on status.

Or -3 on rolls at least.

Re: State of the Mongoose 2018

Will the K'kree (and others) be integrated into the character generation software from RPGSuite also? Regarding the Vanguard miniatures game, the major issue with the last campaign was that the buy-in was limited to a full set only, which was a high price-mark for an entree point. Would it it be wor...

Re: State of the Mongoose 2018

Thanks for this. It's appreciated. The Brexit thing sucks - and I also appreciate the candidacy in your remarks here, politicised as they inevitably are. My advice? Do as I did, and emigrate to New Zealand…. Some interesting titles ahead, particularly for Traveller - but no Robots yet! :( Will look ...

I'd probably just do some homebrew version of Star Wars mixed with Star Trek.

Same here, ordered on Sunday but guess the team are now on Christmas holidays.
It may be the case, although I have got mine now.

Do ensure you have sent Matt Sprange a PM.
