Re: Multiple Missile Salvoes Arriving Simultaneously

When that truck has finished launching its 4 missiles, it can't contribute anything else to an ongoing battle. It is relatively small and unlikely to be targeted by the enemy. So people are writing that a large warship can launch 1000's of missiles. Once those missiles are launched. can that ship ma...

Re: [[[Playtest Focus]]] Last Chance for High Guard

Still reading High Guard but there are two PDF things I noted:- 1. First page “Contents section” greyed out. 2. There are no “bookmarks” for the PDF – they would be useful for faster navigation of the PDF. Will carry on reading :) INTRODUCTION P2 - “Abusing the ship's locker”. Shouldn't this be in t...

Re: How many Crew for Smelters

Only if we do not consider economy. Freight is cheap. Comparative advantages makes everyone better off with trade. Autarky, like in North Korea, leads to poverty. Well Capitalism is struggling too. At one end of the spectrum you've got all those Billionaires. At the other end you've got people work...

That won't break the bank. Are you still planning to print one book a month (eventually)?

How much will that be in (UK) Pounds?

Re: New Release - Atlas of the French Arm in Hardback!

Any idea when this will make UK distribution? Leisure Games don't have it yet and it isn't on their new releases list for March 1st. No idea. I have been tracking Esdevium Game's "New Release" PDFs on http://www.esdeviumgames.com/ but it looks like it will be March at the earliest before a copy arr...

Re: [[[ Playtest Focus ]]] Robots

Only robots can guarantee perfect operations. I disagree. There are so many things that can go wrong. Assuming that everything is working OK, a robot will be more likely to produce repeatable, predictable results better than a Sophont. However, a Sophont is likely to be better at dealing with novel...

Re: Pirates of Drinax Kickstarter?

Okay, after a great deal of thought, it looks like we are going to scrap this idea - no Kickstarter for Drinax. What we will do instead is a two volume hardback set, in slip case, likely with big poster map of the entire sector. A real deluxe edition of what is possibly the greatest Traveller campa...

Re: Mongoose News - Atlas of the French Arm Hardback

Hello There,

When will "Atlas of the French Arm" reach the shops? I buy my books from Travelling Man in Newcastle. I think they get their stuff from Esdevium Games. I have checked out the "New Releases" PDFs on http://www.esdeviumgames.com/ but I've seen nothing so far.

:)

Re: New Edition of Traveller is Here!

Hang on, but if I made the whole thing possible by funding the beta testing, I get... nothing? That doesn't seem equitable. I thought that the money you put towards the beta can be put towards buying the new edition, when available. I certainly hope so. If people who buy the print version get a fre...
