I'm afraid I must hang my head and admit that I used pretty sci-fi names rather than Traveller equipment for that write-up :P

I really really hope I could :D Hell, I could even referee it ^^ It's not like I don't know the rules. It would really depend on the day though.

Re: Adventure 3: Trillion Credit Squadron - on Drivethru

Oh, good, the author is here! Barnest , in the book, you state that a missile pack can only be reloaded in a starport. Shouldn't they also be able to be reloaded in a hanger? I would think that these would be excellent weapon mounts for fighter squadrons... Yes, that makes a lot of sense and I shou...

Re: Adventure 3: Trillion Credit Squadron - on Drivethru

Question to BarnesT - since this is a game where barrage combat is likely to figure a lot, what do you treat the plasma gun's IWD as? LOVE the fire control grid, by the way. Will actually make people deploy in proper squadrons. I knew I had forgotten something! Damn. I seem to remember plasma gun d...

I can't wait for the print version :D I'll be grabbing a copy for myself (despite knowing the thing back to front anyway...)

I'm glad people are enjoying it.

Re: "Drones" being deployed by US Navy

Check out the Aegis class Scout from Gorgon Press. It's a small navy scout which uses six drones to greatly extend its sensor range to check out systems before the main fleet arrives.
It mentions the use of other drones as well, though they're not in the stats.

Re: unmanned jump ships (Q for GMs)

No, AUTONOMOUS. Um... no. The weapon carrying drones currently in use cannot fire on a target without human interaction. They may well be able to manoeuvre and acquire targets autonomously, but its still a human pulling the trigger. The phalanx (and other CIWS) does indeed fire without human interv...

Re: Traveller: Multiple Melee Attacks?

There does seem to be a little confusion over this in the book. I would say that the way I read it, you can only make one attack ever per round. A pilot check is a move action (so minor) so it can be done alongside a significant action. However because it is a... major minor action? it gives a -2. L...

You can spend a maximum of 5000 credits on equipment, not counting benefits (which you don't pay for anyway). There are aug's that cheap, but they're not very good.
