Re: How do you generate child characters?

Some guy wrote a book series on genetically modified kids that played pew-pew in war simulators that really weren't war simulators, or some such nonsense.

This is great, except I can't actually generate workable skill stats for characters below 18 years in the rules. The kid is about 13 years, I'm thinking. Any suggestions?
Choose a homeworld to generate a character from. Starting age is 13 +1D4 - 1D4. Don't give them a career or anything. Done.

Re: Converting 5th D&D races to Traveller 2nd Edition

You have an idea of the Drow, what would they be like in a science fiction setting similar to Classic Traveller? D&D is all about killing things and taking their stuff. Traveller is about a whole other thing. The Drow would be treated as aliens, just like how the Darrians are, and given career temp...

Re: Combat in darkness

Do characters without night vision suffer a -2 penalty to combat rolls in darkness, the same as if their targets have cover or am I missing a rule somewhere? It all depends on how the night is described, where the characters are, and what each player says their character is doing at that moment? A ...

Re: What should I do?

Any player that is good at role-playing will not care if another player at the table has been a professional full-time game master for 30+ years or not. They just care if the player is good at role-playing. Such players are hard to find.

A voice in their head that they don't understand. I don't have any psionic translator that I remember. Maybe a mental image can be used instead.
