Current projection: PDF ebook in 3 weeks, hardcopy at the bottom end of the year (we'll do pre-orders for that at the same time as the ebook).
Anything new on this? Will the PDF be out soon?

Re: Keeping track of NPC Crew (Drinax)

In my game, there is a pool of named NPCs that have specific skills and personalities, and a pool of generic crew. The generic crew has 3 types, engineering/mechanical, pilot/electronics and gunner/marine. They have +0-2 in the things in their field, -3 everywhere else. The Generic NPCs crew the pir...

Re: Last Call for Drinax

You're making one of the best campaigns I've ever seen even better? The waiting is so hard... Meanwhile my long-running Drinax campaign keeps going. On one hand, I look forward to all the wonderful new stuff in this version to throw at my players, on the other, I worry I won't be able to use some of...

Re: What does DD mean in 2e?

In reference to damage?
If so, it means destructive. Multiply the die result by 10. But check the rules for scales and effect.

Re: Last Call for Drinax

I'd really like to pre-order the printed copy and get the PDF in two weeks, and the printed stuff when it is ready, even if I have to wait 3 months.
Will you be doing that with this, as you did with the core books?

Re: Pourne, Drinax and Asim

Pirates of Drinax chapter 7 describes Pourne, and it doesn't come out and say it, it sounds like the rulers are xenophobic and isolationist. Because they can get everything they need via trade, the rulers of Pourne would rather stay out of other planets business. And they feel everyone else should s...

Re: Questions: Spinal Mounts

I have some questions regarding spinal mounts. Spinal mounts get size reduction as their tech level rises. Normally, a particle spinal mount is 3500 tons per increment with the max tonnage of 28000. That gives 8 increments (max damage of 8DD). However, with 3 additional TLs, a railgun spinal mount ...

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

Wow, this is a fun book. I'm too swamped to try my hand at designing vehicles for a bit, but will be pulling a few vehicles from the huge list of standard designs into my weekly game. Too bad we just started a "mostly stuck on a starship" arc.... I guess they will have to entertain themselves in jum...

Re: Referee's Briefing 6: Garden Worlds

I was exited to see the poni, but noticed immediately that it looks nothing like what I expected. Previous editions have illustrated the poni as a symbol of the IISS, and it looks more like an eight-legged sauropod than horse. Previous descriptions (what little there are) describe them as reptilian...

High Guard Fleet Manoeuvre Chart

I'm reading about the Fleet Manoeuvre chart, and thinking it may be useful. It references the range bands on p.156 of the core rulebook, which goes from Adjacent to Close to Short then to Medium and so on. The Fleet Manoeuvre chart on p. 91 of High Guard goes directly from Close to Medium. In other ...

Probably depends on the planet, but logically it wasn't illegal when he did it, so he should not be punished by the legal system.
The people could treat him as a pariah, because in the court of popular opinion he is guilty, however...
