Re: Traveller Core Rulebook errata

Folks, what Matthew and I are looking for are: a) typos to fix for reprints b) fixes to actual problems in use So you want potentially dozens of ways different GM's handle various problems in the rules? If that is the case, this forum is littered with years worth of that from GM's already... Just g...

Re: Traveller Core Rulebook errata

Folks, what Matthew and I are looking for are: a) typos to fix for reprints b) fixes to actual problems in use Now, I'm told by people that there are a number of common house rules in use, so if that's true, let's see them. I will be changing the pasted data above to a link to a document to preserve...

Re: Traveller 2015 and onwards?

Talking (!) to Matthew today about Mongoose Traveller and then I see this.

Please tell me someone submitted a proposal for a Mongoose Traveller transhuman supplement. I know I am not the person to write it, but I'm darned interested in helping see that come to life...

Traveller errata

Matthew and I had a discussion today on how to handle errata moving forward... this is the start of that effort. I'm going to start with the already compiled errata for the Core Rulebook, and request that corrections or other errata for ONLY the Core Rulebook be posted in this thread. You may also c...

Re: Traveller: Liftoff - New Box Set

This is NOT a rebuild or new edition of Mongoose Traveller. It's a beginner ruleset -- very slimmed down. Donm61873 - I assume you sir are part of the group working with/for Matt on this product then? If so, then I will take your word for it and report the following: Spacecraft evasion/effects - no...

Re: Capped Zhodani education level

Can the proletariat legally increase their educational level? RTT answered this above correctly. The third paragraph of the "Characteristic Adjustment" section should be fairly clear: "These adjustments apply only at the start of character generation". I'd change the following sentence to read, "Th...

Re: Capped Zhodani education level

In looking the paragraph over, I'd probably write it like this today: "For all classes of Zhodani society, initial Education cannot be higher than initial Social Standing. If Education is higher than Social Standing initially, reduce Education to be equal to Social Standing. On the other hand, child...

I just picked up the ALien module 4:Zhodani and found some mistakes with the robots. SO the Zhodani uses grav system instead of legs-but there is a problem in the design. trash bot and maintence bot use Grav floater-(4o kph) uses 2 slots? p.80 light warbot uses A grav belt (300kph) uses 1.8 slots? ...

Re: The Great Traveller Clean-Up!

Emailed the guy listed at the start of this thread. He said all the information has already been turned into Mongoose Publishing. Now it's up to them what happens next. Yes, Matthew is currently reviewing the material I turned over for the Core Rulebook, but don't stop posting here or sending me ne...

Re: Fifth Frontier War

One, two, three, four... Hmm... that sounds right, sadly. And of course Marc reserves his right to decide otherwise, but that's the way I understand it at the moment. Of course, my biggest worry for warrants was always the way the one in the Kinunir was written, like it was a bearer instrument. I'm...

Re: Fifth Frontier War

Unless one of these covers the warrant from the Rebellion, then you have just created a new one, meaning there are four warrants in play. Yes, the third one was the one from the Rebellion... I should have written: "3. The warrant Norris used to make himself an archduke . Ok, that's a third adventur...

Re: Fifth Frontier War

Actually, there's some simple explanation here, I've been over this with Marc. There are three separate warrants being discussed here. 1. The first warrant that Norris faked. That warrant, which I may not discuss at this time, dates from before he became Duke of Regina. Ask me about it in private. I...

The following is from Donald Mckinney and is a huge timeline. Go to the fifth frontier war section and see just how many cannon and non cannon adventures are set around the war and its events. Oh and if anyone Knows who Donald is thank him for his work here. http://dmckinne.winterwar.org/pdfs/Trave...

Re: Alien Module 4 Zhodani: ADDAXUR Questions and Questionna

I totally missed this discussion... Why change the Clotho? Because I didn't feel they fit into the Addaxur niche. I don't think the Clotho presented in GTAR1 match up with the Addaxur from AM4. I wanted the Addaxur to be built on top of the original CT AM4 presentation. So when I was writing the Zho...

Re: Second Edition - Comments Wanted!

Personally I think several of the books mentioned could be repaired with errata (robots for example isn't a problem book because of what it lacks content wise, it causes problems because of unclear rules and and issues with game mechanics). The CSC might be a good candidate for a second edition bec...

Who cares ... Don, perhaps, because he is the poor guy who has to waste his time on reading the same stuff again and again ?
