Re: Mongoose News - Traveller Adventures in Print & Pre-Order High GUard

Speaking of pre-orders,

I notice that RPGNow is now listing hard copies of CSC - does that meant that pre-ordered physical books are imminent?

Re: Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

I downloaded it from the Mongoose site a week ago? Interestingly, the files: Traveller_Core_eBook.pdf Traveller_Core_Rulebook_BW_PRINTFRIENDLY.pdf contain the phrase "(the Effect cannot exceed the number of missiles in the salvo)" on p162, but the file: Traveller_Core_Rulebook_erratajun2016_Ebook.p...

Re: Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

We do seem to be getting to the heart of my question, which is that, if I am firing a pulse laser and roll a (modified) 8, then my attack deals 2d6 damage, but if I roll a (modified) 8 with a missile then I deal zero damage. Not an issue as such, but it seems out of line with the rules as presented ...

Re: Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

16/ The calculation determine how many missiles hit. If 0 missiles hit you do 0 damage. See beta-test thread http://forum.mongoosepublishing.com/viewtopic.php?f=89&t=118038 Is this a change from the core rules, as I checked both my print copy and the pdf download and both say: If an attack roll for...

Re: Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

Thanks for your help so far guys, any thoughts on any of the other questions (I updated the first post to reflect answers already received, and added another about ship-ship missile strikes),

Re: Traveller Adventures in Print & Pre-Order High Guard

So how do Travellers across the pond in the US pre-order HG when the Mongoose website show prices in British pounds? In other words, how do we handle currency conversion? If you're paying with paypal it should do it for you, shouldn't it? Given what just happened to the pound I imagine it'll be pre...

Re: Quick Question

One of my player characters is an ex-journalist, and she wishes to sell stories in an ad hoc, freelance, fashion. We've finished our first adventure (High and Dry), and has written a story on the volcano on Winston. My question is, how much would she likely be paid for said story? I've already dete...

Re: Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

From wiki: Estimates are that humans unshielded in interplanetary space would receive annually roughly 400 to 900 mSv Exposures on the ISS average 150 mSv per year Conclusion: the ISS is fairly well shielded, removing ~75% of incoming radiation. I think (vaguely believe) normal radiation in space i...

Re: Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

Exposures on the ISS average 150 mSv per year 150 mSv is roughly 15 rad. Yeah - I try not to compare RPGs with the real world too much as things are often wonky (and I don't know if Traveller Rads map directly to real world Rads)! That said, it should be possible to spacewalk without suffering from...

Re: Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

Even if an Astronaut never leaves the ISS, the cumulative radiation exposure is significant; eyes, in particular, tend to accumulate damage. Sure, but you're talking about months of exposure there, Using RAW, a six hour spacewalk (not unheard of) is going to accumulate an approximate dose of 70 (av...

Traveller 2nd edition clarifications and questions

Couple of questions for y'all, 1/ Disease, pg. 76. This section seems to cover recovery from an illness or bio-weapon, but not the liklihood of being effected, thoughts? SOLVED: Transmission is effectively considered to be automatic - if the first effect roll is a success then maybe you lucked out. ...

Re: Mongoose News - The Printed Edition of Traveller has Arrived!

Matthew, is there any chance of getting a change-log or errata document for the print version of traveller - I don't especially want to have to work through the hard copy and pdf side-by-side to figure out the changes?

Many thanks

Re: Traveller 2nd Edition errata

It seems like the consensus is that there isn't an official errata short of getting the pdf? Is there any liklihood of one getting put together anytime soon? (I'll get the pdf if I have to, but I tend to run games with a physical book, and would prefer to have an up-to-date list of changes without n...

Traveller 2nd Edition errata

Is it possible to get information on errata for traveller without needing to buy the pdf? Are the errata items summarised anywhere?

I notice from the preorder pdf that the equipment guide has a whole bunch of errors as it stands - are these being addressed prior to it going to print?
