I have a Twitch account. So sure, I'll watch.
Watching is good. Asking questions will be even better :)
Don't worry. I do make use of the chat stream.

Re: Beta critique: Element: travele4.pdf: Concentric Attack

What's the point of calling it a concentric attack if it's failing? Mongoose Traveller is not a war game. It's written with role-players in mind.

Re: Arguments for & against point-buy chargen

I generated a bunch of characters for a short-run game, and I used the written rules, except that I rolled a skill die and then chose the category. I fudged a few of the life incident rolls too, where the results would have been boring (repeats of the same number, where I couldn't think of distinct...

And have you wondered how it could be run as as actual game?
The Traveller system works with any setting. So Lost in Space wouldn't be any different.

Re: Dogfight rules

The moment aggro starts on either side, is when a dog fight begins. Ambushes help one side at first.

Re: Visual reason why you don't speed when docking

So what do refs and players think about the odds of a starship losing control of having equipment failure and crashing when approaching a starport? Does anyone use that as a plot device for adventures, or the designs of their starports? Ships can crash all over the place in my games. No place is im...

I don't use any settings from previous brands of Traveller. Except for Azun, which I rebooted.

Re: Pirates of Drinax: Game of Sun & Shadow

Looking over the adventures in "Pirates," I'm curious to know how people's experience with "The Game of Sun & Shadow" have gone. Did you have your players create naval characters? How did their adventure go? Were you able to coalesce the two into one cohesive adventure? If you haven't run it yet, h...

Traveller as an RPG is gritty and small scale and not the game you seem to need.
Mongoose Traveller can be used for any setting pretty much.

Re: Navy/Marine records across different systems.

So I just started the Treasure Ship adventure in the Drinax campaign and it mentions there that characters with a navy background are looked upon favourably by the captain. Would the records of navy or marine personnel be part of the ships library data, updated at each imperial port if would the re...

Re: Arguments for & against point-buy chargen

Show me a game session on YouTube that has lots of die rolls and that has role-play. Why would I care about YouTube, role-playing is about the group, not others. Watching others play is just boring. True. Boring game sessions are not worth watching. Especially when there is no role-playing at the t...

Re: Some Ideas

Why doesn't she simply transcend back to wherever she normally hangs out, instead of slumming around with a bunch of 777777s? It's weird that your Uber Empire has no adventures of its own, and is now looking for other empire adventures like Drinax to entertain with.
