Entry 4. Ending of a Relationship - Badly. Should that create a Rival or Enemy?

Entry 5: Improved Relationship - Should that create a Contact or Ally?

Doesn't Marine Career Event 9 gain you an Enemy?

For my second term in the Star Marines I rolled a 9 on the post-survival Events Table. The entry reads: A mission goes disastrously wrong due to your commander’s error or incompetence, but you survive. If you report your commanding officer for his failure then you gain DM+2 to your next Advancement ...

The Culture by Iain M. Banks is one setting I wouldn't mind to see translated into rpg's.

Re: Book X and Supplement X - Comments Wanted!

I would like to see: 1) A sort of "Fire fusion and steel book" with all the rules for build vehicles, ships, and also for personal weapons and armors and so, all together. Seconded. And please have it written by David Pulver. Or maybe even by Greg Porter. Or by both of them! 2) A new setting based ...

Re: Detailed World and System Generation

... I'd go with TNE for extended system generation for now. It got star types closer to right than Mega did. Did you get to see the Excel Worksheet Brett Evil made for GURPS Space 4th Edition? AFAIK, this is the most advanced tool of the type available, even if the author was dissatisfied with some...

TNE does include such details ( World Tamer's Handbook, GDW 311, pp. 83-87).

Re: Measurement

Ah - good call G. K. Zhukov ... except 2 x 6.75 is 13.5 ;) Which is exactly what I meant to say - sorry for not being able to properly convey the idea. :?

Re: Measurement

In short : 1 dton = 13.5 cubic meters (dimensions : 1.5 x 1.5 x 3 meters) :D Well... No. :wink: In fact, if you perform the math you will see that 1.5 x 1.5 x 3 = 6.75 meters, which is HALF of a displacement ton in the Traveller canon. So when you are designing a starship you will need TWO of those...

I think (from the player/potential buyer perspective) this is most unfortunate. By insisting time and again on the same settings instead of fleshing out new stretches of the OTU we only get contradictions and canon will become even more messed up. We are talking about a rules-free, setting-only book...
