Re: 2300AD 2.0 release dates

I'm fairly certain that we are going to see a significant facelift in the presentation of this line, and that takes time to get right. For me, any earlier than the timetable they've lined up would have alarm bells ringing. Jan '19 looks about right to me, after the Traveller line is well established...

Haven't got them down under yet, either. I think it's just European countries.

Re: Is DNA universal

Mushrooms are a fungi, and have a particular cellular design to categorise it as such. Viruses, also, generally have an RNA strip that integrates with a hosts DNA and other species don't have full blown DNA either. It really isn't beyond the boundaries of science fiction that different planets have ...

Re: Hivers

The problem as I see it is that there is a desire to do fully developed 'splat' books for each of the major races. It's what has happened before, and these take time developing. For most groups, however, all they really need is a decent write up for the race and then just use the normal character ge...

Re: Introduction and a question. Traveller crunchy?

The basic system is as simple as it gets. The ship design and various random generation charts add complexity. It's as crunchy as D&D in it's own way.

Re: A Traveller Miniatures Game?!!

What scale was Starship Troopers? Or Judge Dredd for that matter? Probably gives a bit of a hint anyway.

Re: Pirates of Drinax patron quests.

My players decided to completely skip the trip to Clarke and headed straight for Torpal. They assumed (incorrectly) that it was a trap.

Yeah, I think the TAS forum could probably just get integrated into the main forum.

Re: does Traveller 2E not include aliens?

Y'know, at this stage, what I'd actually like considered is one, big "Aliens of the Imperium" sourcebook, to detail in some capacity all of the major Alien species - Aslan, Vargr, Hivers, Kree, maybe others, and then maybe another book strictly for Humanity species - Vilani, Solomani and Zhodani. Al...

Re: Old gamer rants about new edition destroying everything good

There has been some feedback, here and there on the new Paranoia game, but not an awful lot and I guess criticisms like these should be discussed. To answer the first question, yes, we probably did need a new edition. Mongoose as a company needs to make revenue from their license, while fans tend to...

Re: troupe Traveller

Troupe style play is mostly discussed, as the game that coined the idea, in Ars Magica. In this game there are three tiers of character type: Magi (Wizards, very powerful), Companions (competent characters) and Grogs (Underlings, soldiers and servants). They collectively form a Covenant, which is a ...

Re: troupe Traveller

Absolutely. Have been arguing this for years - the Troupe style play is absolutely suited to Traveller.

Re: Mongoose Traveller - The New and current updated edition. What do you expect from this new line?

Our group has started the Pirates of Drinax campaign, which I expect will take at least 6 months to complete, and I expect the Great Rift Box will be something of a dream campaign, when I get it too. In some respects I am well catered for. Future books, therefor aren't necessarily urgent, but I'll k...
