Part Three's finished, by the way. I'll be starting Part Four next month.

Just say that the king is a very long way away when he speaks to the players. Then shout.

Re: Destructive

"Some weapons are noted as being Destructive (D). Such weapons reduce the armour of the target on a successful hit equal to the number of dice it rolls for damage. Armour is reduced after the attack. For example, a weapon doing 10d6 Destructive damage reduces the enemy’s armour by 10 after an attack."

Re: Hammer's Slammers source material question

They've got pretty much everything. There is, IIRC, one novel set in the same universe, but that isn't a Slammers story so it's not in those collections, but everything else is there.

Re: Whats the point of beam lasers now?

If I were to redo the MgT rules today, I'd boost missile damage by several notches. (Also on the hypothetical agenda - personal armour values).

Re: The Empress Wave - An Alternative Thought

That's rather lovely. Anything that reduces the number of Ancient plot devices in favour of human agency gets a thumbs-up from me.

Re: Author of Aramis : Traveller Adventure

Nothing to do with me. The only Traveller stuff I'm doing at the moment is Pirates of Drinax. "Only." That campaign is huge and awesome, and is more than enough at once! Agreed. When is the next bit due? I'm late getting it done. If the manuscript isn't in by the new year, wrath shall fall on my he...

Re: Computers/Expert Software/Intelligent Weapons

You start with Computer/1 on the gun. You turn it into a specialised computer, which basically makes it Computer/3 but you can't change the programs built into it. You then give it Intellect/1 and Expert/2. It doesn't need Intelligent Interface because the user isn't using the Expert program - the I...

I thought it was 1AP=100SP worth of stuff or 50SP worth of gold.
So it is. There's a misprint on page 58, which lists it as 1AP=500SP, and that's what I glanced at when making a hasty reply.

Re: Deus Vult questions

Replacements - instead of new Initiates, you could have players play allies from outside the Order*, or turn established Order NPCs into PCs. *: Said allies would have to either be sent to Mont St. Michel for training or else exterminated at the end of the adventure, though...unless the PCs are will...

It depends on how the failure's described. If it's 'you screw up, and don't succeed in what you were trying to do', then that's lame. If it's done as 'you're awesome, but some external force stops you succeeding and makes the peril bigger', it can work. So, you've got a 60% chance of swinging heroic...
