Just for clarification I'll be playing mostly with the Chthonian Stars setting when it arrives in October. For those who dont know, its set entirely in our Solar System with a new set of ships with a "T-Drive" to replace the J-Drive and Jumping (as we're looking at a 50 AU sphere of travel only). Th...

Just an interesting aside, someone on tv tropes found out the capabilities of MU/TH/UR from Alien, and it ran at like 198 KB. :shock:

The company was seriously cutting back on their computer budget with the Nostromo :lol:

As for the sunglasses idea, I think the ones worn by Major Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell would look hi-tech enough, not sure where you could get a pair, but theyre modern enough to not be too hard to find.

Theres also retrotech and advanced computer options in the Core that most people just gloss over. You can get a super advanced hand computer on the cheap if a high enough TL world produces the lower TL one youre after. Sure, its probably diddling the system, but if you want a nice cheap TL 9 hand co...

About the CSC, I'll be running a campaign or series of one-shots that wont actually go over TL 9 gear for the players (it'll be mostly TL 8 stuff at that). The feel I'm going for is an Alien-Event Horizon crossover, hard sci-fi tech, used look spaceships, that kinda feel. There will be higher TL stu...

I'd suggest rolling randomly for npcs using the tables in the core, you can come up with really crazy combos that way that you may not have thought of yet. Also, I'm hoping to use an aspect of the Ancients in my games, however mine is based off the old Space Jockey from Alien. http://www.freewebs.co...

Hi there, new member here, I've recently got hold of the Traveller Core Book in preparation for the upcoming Chthonian Stars supplement. Ive been recommended the Central Supply Catalogue, but from the previews Ive seen it doesnt look like much new stuff has been added, is it worth the £25 for it or ...
