So has anyone looked at MGT's new vehicle book vs. T5 vehicle design system? I haven't.

Link, or it didn't happen.

Really? A car ran into a tree across the street from me yesterday. There exists no "link", yet it happened. Your assertion isn't logical.

That "theory" was debunked once Venus' magnetic field strength was measured. No need to put quotes around the word "theory" above. It was a full scientific theory. Until evidence to the contrary turned up and forced the astronomers to go back to the drawing board. You know how science works, Sid. A...

Thank you.

Mayday was designed to be standalone & an RPG extension. It was intended as Game 1 for the Trav RPG (CT) and used a variant of the Trav ship rules.

Newbies don't generally know this about the game.

Re: If you could change space combat, how would you do it?

These are battlefield repairs only and will break down as soon as the battle is over unless repaired properly using the rules on page 143.
How do the repaired systems know when the battle is over? Will they stay repaired if you remain at battle stations? :shock:

No. It was just crap. That's why the publisher completely abandoned it.
