So lets see... Dragoner, Fersboo, nDervish, you're all up for a merchant campaign? Do you all want me as GM?
Old Timer, would a merchant campaign interest you at all?

Play by post Traveller

So there are three collapsed Play by post traveller games down the bottom of the forum which have collapsed quite quietly. All three of them have gone through a variety of owners (including me once on two of them) and I'd love to see them working again. Anyway, being that sections admin I could quie...

Re: Aircraft Carriers in Space

I think one of the prime targets for small craft like light fighters and bombers is smaller craft that have to choose between armouring and weaponry and manoeuvrability. While a 50,000 ton ship might have 15 points of armour, a 3000 ton frigate that runs at M-6 might only have 6-10 points. These are...

Re: Battle Dress

My first question is how did you get your hands on a 2 millcred piece of gear :P Anyway: 1) Same as ever, no speed increase. 2) Um... lots? hang on. 15 is +3, 18 is 4, 21 is 5, 24 is 6, 27, 28 and 29 are all +7 How did you get 29? 3) Damned high, considering that thing is proving structural support ...

Re: Book 3:Scout what is Engineer (Ship Systems)?

A good thing, I hope...

But then of course it could just be a brand new specialty... which would be silly since it implies that it covers all of them :P

Re: Book 3:Scout what is Engineer (Ship Systems)?

I think it was supposed to be short hand for Engineer (any specialty to do with a ship, but not electronics or anything added in other modules)

If that makes any sense :P

Re: [Gorgon Press] Ship Book: Garuda now on sale

We'll have a look in regards to the Chiron. That would be the simplest to do, as Garuda is modular and the Aegis has its miniature hangars, making them vaguely complex. We would ask however that you don't post stats regarding these three ships, or any of their variants or sub craft. If you do really...

Re: [Gorgon Press] Ship Book: Garuda now on sale

Hmm... We have pondered some sort of conversion document for other versions... Maybe we'll do a three page document at some point, all three ships with the alternated stats... However, isn't 2300 very different in ship design? Most of our ideas on the above were for T5... so how easily would it conv...

They've been working on a variety of railgun projects. One got cancelled... last year? But there are several still going. This seems to be an industrial prototype, which I believe means it was machined instead of hand crafted... Maybe...

Trader adventures

Hi guys Down the bottom of the page, I run a game called 'Traders of Gath XII'. It's a traditional game with a merchant crew set aboard a 400 ton modification of the far trader. We run cargo mainly, though we have had some real excitement recently, with one gun battle, and an escaped cat-analogue he...

I'm speaking purely on the discussion of using terms considered racially inappropriate on an open and public forum with no thought. I have no opinion or comment on the name used for a world in 2300.
