Peter Vernon created a 53-page "Consolidated Equipment List" for previous versions of Traveller, compiling data from canonical sources. It is not exactly what you are after, but it might serve to define what IS used in the 3I setting. http://www.scribd.com/doc/20602564/Consolidated-Equipment-List-fo...

Re: Tufleyverse Traveller

So, if I was to do some specific stuff (depending on Jon @ GZG etc) how would that be received? Kinda recursive? :D Considering Traveller was one of Jon's major inspirations for his stuff. I believe that it would very closely resemble an alternative, parallel version of 2300 AD rather than Travelle...

True, I used to run TNE and that's why I know that 2.2 edition was unrealistically unlethal to the point of making pistols nothreat. I know that someone here used d10 as a damage dice and that would have corrected the problem of lethality :D Alternatively, you could halve the hit points per hit loc...

Nice pics - and nice minis. :D

What are those? 15mm GZG? And the walker/battlesuits in the bottom pic are 15mm or 25/28mm? Details, please, give us details... :wink:

Re: Zeppelins, Fighters, and Dames

probably wiz kids they got the remains of FASA and Ral Partha But WizKids went under (they have been bought by NECA IIRC) and their Crimson Skies heroclix game (amongst several others) went OOP. You can still find it for a reasonable price over the Internet though. I am talking of a new RPG and boa...

Mmmm... I don't know. I feel a realistic WW2 roleplaying game would run better with percentage-based mechanics like those in MRQ.

In fact I would have loved Mongoose Traveller to use the MRQ (or BRP) rules, so I guess it's all a matter of tastes.

Re: Book 8: Merchant Prince

Long-awaited by Traveller fans...
This is one of the cornerstones of the setting IMHO. And it's only four months away!

Thanks for the update.

Thanks Pasuuli ! Just to clarify though, is there any material in GGG that is not in Stuff ? Would it be advisable to get both books ? To be honest, MGT is not as crunchy as 3G3 is, so I do not see the need to own the latter - unless you are a true gearhead. "Stuff!" should be more than enough to d...

Likely future source of not-Zho 15mm minis

Details here:

Club 300 Ventaurans

Let's see if they do happen sometime. It's less than 100 miniature preorders away!

I am for the K'kree and Hivers - although I am afraid they will show up only when/if MGP publishes atlases of the Trailing Sectors (Gateway Domain and to the SE of that), well after the Sollie Rim (which would be the next logical step after the Spinward Marches and surroundings). :cry:

What more could you ask for? 8) Sorry for this blatant show of thread necromancy, but I just re-discovered this pulpy classic (I owned the PC game), got some gaming materials (both from the FASA version and the WizKids clickies) and... Who owns the rights of the game nowadays? Wouldn't it be nice t...
