How are you all finding the book in general? Indispensable! I do have a question about a certain planet in Ss-A DIAZHIENSH (A), called Devliensh :shock: :shock: & its Sector wide Corporation 'Vekbafia' that specializes in providing support to new (Zhodani) colonies... :roll: :twisted: :lol: Since I...

Matthew and I have confirmed the Credits for the Zhodani book, so I'm confident everyone on my list will be there :D

And yes, I've avoided posting anything about the book until now because I didn't want to jinx it.

What if there isn't one?

And why do these three codes have no background skills?

Background Skills missing?

Ok, this is probably a very old question, and I just ran into it. I did do some searching, but came up empty handed. In the Background Skills list on page 6 of the Traveller Core Rulebook, there are no entries for the "Low Population", "Non-Agricultural" and "Non-Industrial" trade codes. Are these m...

If you have the TCR (Traveller Core Rulebook), I recommend CSC (for the additional equipment, and The Spinward Marches. Both are excellent books for adding to a campaign, by Martin Dougherty. As far as adventures, the Living Traveller website has three (soon four!) free adventures for you to review,...

Well, it apparently didn't get ring-fenced by Roger Sanger along with all the other MegaTraveller stuff, which is a good sign. I'd like to do some stuff based in Gateway sector. Maybe for S&P once I've finished the BITS uber adventure... Anything else I guess would be up to Mongoose (as MJD said) a...

Thanks... and I'm still around. Yes, there's several newer products that are not in the timeline yet... I probably need to get my grindstone back out... The Winter War website moved in March, and Google isn't accepting the new site into its index. If anyone knows how to fix that, e-mail me directly ...

An old source you might look at... There was a Fantasy version of Classic Traveller called Aldreth, and in 1992, the author (Nigel Hodge?) converted it to the MegaTraveller skills and tasks system. All the fantasy races and careers were there though... I thought it was on the web somewhere... Found ...

Isn't this the same bus that certain people on the TML drove that caused a bunch of us to move over to a separate X-Boat list during the TNE years?

Player's Guide errata

I haven't seen this anywhere yet... For the INTERPLANETARY TRANSIT TIMES TABLE, for distances of 600,000,000km or greater, thrust ratings 4 and 5 have the same time requirements? I suspect that the times for thrust rating 6 for these three entries should be in the 5 column, and the times for thrust ...

The important thing to remember is that no one is telling you how to run your game. If you want the Zhodani to have a great racial fear of starfish, and a desire for the destruction of the Hivers to be the reason behind a K'kree/Zhodani alliance against the Third Imperium, have fun. On the other han...
