Re: Tugs

This is not in any way an official answer, so take with a grain of salt. Franz Joseph ship designs are licensed from FJ Designs AND Paramount, so they typically are released in sets containing only FJ ships. The FJ ships are the Federation tug, scout, middle years dreadnought, and (I think) heavy cr...

Steve Cole has posted a snippet of the Police Cutter's deck plans on the starfleetgames.com discus forum. Looks good.

Re: Fleet Update #2 - Ready for Free Download

From an SFU background perspective, ADDs should kill armoured drones as easily as unarmoured. When firing at drones, they either hit (and kill) or miss. Also, Type-II and Type-V drones aren't speed 32. They are speed 12, and were only in use when all drones were speed 8. When medium-speed (speed 20)...

Re: Fleet Update 2 - Questions, issues etc

I interpreted "re-roll" to mean "If you don't like the first result, you may re-roll the die but you must take the second result even if it is worse" since that's what it means in other systems.

Re: ACTA in Sydney?

Hi Lex,

I'm in Sydney (Eastern suburbs) and am interested in playing. Have rules, no minis. Will invest in a fleet if I can be assured of a regular game. Where's Hall of Heroes located?

Post from Steve Cole on the latest plan for PD: Traveller. I've interjected in [square brackets] for people who don't obsessively read the ADB forums. The plan at the moment is this: During May 20-28, Jean [travels to Amarillo for a working holiday and while there] converts PD20M core rulebook into ...

Re: Skills & Upgrades

No, weapons only blow through shields on a natural 6, so Precise won't affect it. Come to think of it, it's Accurate that improves the chance of hitting, not Precise. Mind you, with Precise, any photon torps that do get through the shields are going to hurt (Precise plus Devastating means twice as m...

Jean, you posted a typo: it's Princess Sang f roid, as in cold-blooded. Given that you have two or three orders of Princess Sangfroid, you really should have gotten that one right :) If you download the adventure for Free RPG day (cost you a few bucks on e23), it has stats for some typical adventure...

Re: Tech Slosh and Empire based weapon systems

It is actually very weird that the plasma torpedo that is considered so shocking and startling in "Balance of Terror" is as common as dirt in the SFB universe It was shocking and startling because the Federation had never seen it before. This was before the Federation had encountered the Gorns, and...

Re: The rules as stated By Matthew Sprange

I do not consider the 40k rules to be badly written in any way - indeed, I would consider them a good example of how to approach a rules set. I would disagree. In fact, it's one of those cases where I'm so far from agreeing there's simply no basis for any kind of discussion. Having struggled with t...

Re: PARANOIA ebook novels and stories from Ultraviolet Books

I bought Reality Optional. I found myself skipping the last third of the book to find out how it all ended. It failed to hold my interest. I may try Stay Alert, because I find Allen Varney's humour and writing style more to my taste.
