Re: Classic traveller and DM target numbers for tasks

Folks: I have been reading a number of items of Classic Traveller, and Mongoose publishing. I noticed they can go hand-in-hand and are great resources for my Mongoose adenvture right now; however, did Classic Traveller have a static level for DM assign to tasks? for example: Mongoose has +2, +4, +6...

Re: [Spoiler warning] Questions about Chirpers

Well I got the PDF version on the CD as stated. The hard copy. Noble Knights has one, so it's always an option. And I also got the Challenge magazine 27. So I have in hand all the Classic traveller Dryone/Chirper source I think. There was some Droyne material in Third Imperium: http://www.traveller...

Re: [Spoiler warning] Questions about Chirpers

I do have the Mongoose version of 'Secret of the Ancient', But I was wondering if "Alien realms" (That's the proper title not alien adbventures) was the same or similar to the old GWD 'Secret of the Ancients' which I have. 95% of my traveller stuff is the Classic GWD version with a bit of GURPS stu...

Re: [Spoiler warning] Questions about Chirpers

I believe the old CT book Alien Adventures contained a chapter where high tech Dryone visit the Churpers on Vanjeen to 'save' them or 'up lift' them. The adventure is called 'The Casteless' and is designed for Droyne PCs. Without giving too much away, they are aiming for a specific Chirper village ...

Re: Free Epic Campaign - The Pirates of Drinax

And that just brings me back to the initial question, how far is the pirate and prey from the 100d line, should the pirate decide to get out of there? That's part of the dilemma for the pirates. They need to be far enough out from the world that they can get away afterwards without pursuit being to...

Re: Free Epic Campaign - The Pirates of Drinax

Well, that indicates that the responder is at the planet or the 100d line, but how far away is that, if the number rolled is the initial encounter distance? Depending on the thrust of the responding ship you should be able to calculate an approximate distance from the jump transit table. For exampl...

Re: Free Epic Campaign - The Pirates of Drinax

When setting up an encounter, the intro. speaks of rolling 3d6 x the world's diameter to determine the encounter distance in 1,000 of km. Is that the distance between the ships, and/or the distance to the planet or the 100d line? Distance at which your players encounter the other ship. It correspon...

What about Reaver's Deep? Bordered by the Aslan, Solomani and Imperium and on the fringes of the Great Rift which should give you plenty of scope for complicating things for the players.

How about the setting for the Dorsai series of books by Gordon Dickson? No aliens, but plenty of scope for conflict between the old Earth and the splinter worlds. It doesn't have to be a military campaign either - almost any Traveller campaign types would fit into the setting. http://en.wikipedia.or...
