Speaking as a merchant prince I agree with deals, should be Cr325,000 though. 10% ish off for the package.
Otherwise good idea, lets see the rest of the package ideas then :wink:

Another point to consider with those forged documents. What about the serial numbers on every major component on the ship and many of the minor ones. Gives the game away a bit on your next maintenance when some tech replaces a part and updates the serial number only to get it flagged as stolen. Anyw...

All good points for the prospective starship thief. Still you need someone to keep all those bounty hunting adventurers in work, no criminals to chase, no rewards to collect. As regards deposits for ships and the like. Asking for a large deposit rules out players owning ships unless they have the od...

Of course, no player character in the entire run of Traveller has ever figured out that if you want to make some real money, stop buying and selling starship cargoes. Start buying and selling the starships . What and try to compete with all those greedy banks and money lenders, fast way to have an ...

Medium Passengers are the worst possible thing to carry, unless you are getting Cr500 per ton from Merchant Prince with no broker do not carry mediums. Push the furniture aside and carry 3 tons of cargo in the empty staterooms. Yes I know staterooms are 4 tons but 3 tons is the stateroom and the ot...

Morning all. Re shipping passengers and cargo, I have spent some time drawing up a series of tables as one of the articles I am doing. As part of that I broke down all three types of passengers and basic cargo to profit per ton based just on costs and income for jump one to jump 4. Crew wages were n...

With regard to lots of cash on board a ship. How exactly do your players trade or much else, do they have a local bank with the money it. Its all well and good having 50m creds in the bank but its not much use buying cargo to fill your ship if the money is 3 jumps away. Either the 3I has ways of peo...

I hope this isn't a preview of the general quality of the editing. It isn't, no - for some reason this preview seems to have been drawn from a pre-edit file. Looking into that (it _should_ be impossible with our processes, but there is no accounting for Mr Cock Up). Will be fixed come Monday. The p...

Question regarding selling new Traveller the new era box

Off topic question here all. What sort of worth is a new, still shrink wraped deluxe box set of the new era worth these days? Its got the new era rules, fire fusion and steel and some maps and posters and such. It is brand new still shrink wraped and came from a box at the back of a store room. I am...

The base tech level of a world does determine what is available to everyone and should be a modifier to a degree. The social level is a factor but only where it reflects wealth and power, being realy well known but poor and powerless leaves you at the base tech level where as money allows you to buy...

Which is definitely something a bureaucracy would do, leaving the poor schmuck affected feeling trapped and uncertain. Hehehe, I love this idea.

Re: a little more info

As Others have said, its one of those odd things. Like everything else in the game the results of mustering out are subject to GM rule. If you personaly are not happy then put a line through it and write ship share in biro next to it in your rule book. :twisted: One of the main points of traveller (...

[quote="alex_greene"]As for getting around the thing, one suggestion for a possible cure could be radiation.

Several things spring to mind. You could start cutting back on the adventures or missions they get as word gets around that they are trigger happy.

Something which I have noticed in all the debates about battledress (powered) is that people seem to be talking about why a single size/volume/mass etc is the right one. The 3I is huge, its marines/specfor/black ops etc have many jobs and a great many equipment specs for those jobs. The marines stor...
