Re: Recommended Reading?

Are you aware that urban fantasy and paranormal romance are currently outselling traditional medieval fantasy by several orders of magnitude. Hmmm...perhaps a book outlining how to run modern paranormal romance using Legend or RQ 6 might be fun :P Yes, truthfully no accounting for the masses wantin...

Re: Beam ? Is Mongoose using the wrong word?

The reason that I ask is it does makes sense to fire down the centerline of a ship providing a greater chance of hitting if the shot is long/short from where you aimed it. Now yes guns lined up left to right a target that is wide gives a better chance of hitting when you are off on your aim in side-...

Re: Beam ? Is Mongoose using the wrong word?

Mongoose is using the term in its correct application when discussing incoming fire. And "firing down the length of a ship is more likely to produce hits than firing at the targets broadside" is demonstrably incorrect. Firing on the ship as it presents its broadside results in a significantly bigge...

Re: Handling Skill Advancement

Looking at CRB p59 'Learning New Skills', do most of you assume if you learn a new skill in this way that you get it at level-1 or level-0? Level 1. Off the top of my head, I believe the only time level 0 is obtained is from background skills and basic training. By rule I agree, but I allow a Level...

Re: why have the Kizinti been neutered?

Ok, as someone who watched the series when it was in first run (in the 60's) and had the tech manual etc. all this talk about "drones" annoys me. Even the 'fanboys' who argue every little other detail don't speak up - that there were no drones in ST:TOS. They had probes, they had photon torpedoes.. ...

Ok, nice catch. I have to fix that before the new trooper kit gets produced.

Other than that, how did you like our new "handy dandy fill it out in Acrobat " application form?

Do you think the borrower would be required by the mortgage lender to have some type of insurance? What would that probably cost? :?
