print/pdf bundle and/or subscription service request

I mentioned this in the Traveller forum but thought I'd add it here. I'd like to see print/pdf bundles for Mongoose books. I also wouldn't mind seeing a subscription (auto shipping each new 2300 AD title each month for example). Not sure if the subscription part is possible but the bundle should be....

2300AD character creation changes from Traveller

I'm curious if there will be any changes from the Traveller character creation rules beyond the obvious--need an Earth nationality, aliens have changed etc. I'm considering starting a 2300AD campaign early with the Traveller rules and old supplements but I wouldn't want to have to retrofit too much.

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

Admittedly a bit of an aside, but I have always considered 2300 to have a similar feel to the universe of "Alien". With that, I am really looking forward to the upcoming release of "Prometheus" and am hopeful that the timing of its release will inspire some local gamers to want to play in the 2300 ...

print/pdf bundle for 2300AD?

I couldn't find anything with my web-search fu. Is 2300AD available as a print/pdf bundle or do both have to be purchased separately? Same goes for new titles for 2300AD going forward. Does pre-ordering help get it sooner or otherwise do anything helpful that I should know about? Also, if Mongoose e...

Re: New Alien Race for Traveller - Planet Mongoose

Great race. Lots of good ideas on how it can be used. Alien enough to seem otherwordly but still usable by a player. I like the random mutations. Also, the emphasis on medicine makes sense.

Re: 2300AD TL

There is some cyber tech, relatively low-key, though, with no net-running. TL ranges from 8-12, with most core world products being TL11-12. TL 12 is cutting-edge stuff, and TL13 is available at the prototype level. Weapons include conventional caseless weapons, binary-propellants, gauss rifles, la...

2300AD TL

I looked at the preview for 2300AD and saw that the ground car uses a TL 12. I wonder how the TL will work in the game, I know the setting doesn't support laser weapons and some other sci-fi tech. The equipment section looks to be about thirty pages long so maybe it will be covered there. The other ...

Re: other Traveller books in 2300AD?

Okay, sounds good. Here's hoping the book makes it out in March. I've always wanted to play a Traveller campaign but the default 3rd Imperium is just so big. I can wrap my head around Earth and three arms a bit better.

other Traveller books in 2300AD?

I know the main Traveller rulebook is used for 2300AD. Are any other Traveller books particularly useful to have to use in a 2300AD? What rules and ideas translate well between the two?

brand new to 2300 AD--will I understand new version?

I missed on on the original 2300 AD. Will I be okay just getting into the new version with no previous knowledge? I admit the alien name discussion was a little odd and didn't tell me much about the setting. It sounds really great, so much so I'm thinking about picking up the old PDFs. If the new bo...

Game Master's Screen II compared to old screen

I have both screens in front of me. Exact same size and sturdiness. Artwise, screen 1 has RQ and GM Screen on the front, top and bottom, with a monster in between. Screen II has the logs top and bottom and a gray rune on white in between. Screen 1 has one art scene across four panels. The back panel...

Spectral drop? I presume that's the Spectral Combat score (POWx5%)? I guess its the same for the Spectral Engulf? Does the rule book specify these names somewhere or is this your own interpretation? The abilities you've assigned to it - the enhanced missile fire etc. - these are ones you've added t...

I want to make sure I understand how spirits work. Here's my understanding as I explain it to my players: Combat stats for spirits are used for spirit combat when a shaman wants to capture one. If attached to a fetish, a spirit gives a shaman one ongoing ability whenever the spirit is invoked using ...
