Light Cannon

In the CSC, we have the cannon and the heavy cannon, but there is a lack of light-weight, single-shot weapon for vehicles to use. With that in mind, I present the light cannon! Light Cannon TL: 8 Range: 1.5km Damage: 6D Tons: 0.75 Spaces: 3 Cost: Cr200,000 Magazine: 40 Magazine cost: Cr5,000 Traits:...

Re: Vehicle Handbook: Questions, errors, clarifications

Okay, BIG point to make here :) Remember, 1 Space is used for a passenger strapped into a seat in a car - you can use more Spaces per passenger to give them room to move around. You will see this pop up time and again on vehicles in the book for anything larger than a car or lorry where you get wal...

Re: Vehicle Handbook: Questions, errors, clarifications

Added:

Page 40: Early machinegun is listed at 14 tons! I think that's a type and it should be 0.25 (to match with the 1 space listed).

FIRST QUESTION....
posted already.... What is priority chapter in new Mongoose Rulebook after character generation? :lol:
The Skills chapter. It tells you how to roll, what it all means, and what skills are available (and which does what).

Instead of "fat ferret" class light G-Carrier, what about Honey Badger class light G-carrier... or simply Badger Class light G-Carrier?
Or even Piranha Class?
Or perhaps Mongoose-class…? 8)

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

A space is defined on page 6, Step 5: Crew and Passengers . " Each crew member and passenger will require 1 Space for basic seating. This kind of seating allows for little or no movement within the vehicle, effectively keeping each passenger and crew member in place (such as with a car, fighter jet ...

Re: How?

The forum was down for several hours yesterday, and I'm assuming either a software update gone wrong or a hacker having some fun.

Either way, it's annoying—especially on mobile! There's not a lot of real estate and the dropdowns take up way too much of it.

Jayne's Guide TL1–3 I'll be going through the pre-made vehicles to see if I can figure out how they were constructed. Galleon TL3 unpowered boat, 800 spaces (1 hull per space for unpowered boats); KCr120 Speed isn't listed for unpowered boats under TL4 425 crew = 425 spaces (?) Cargo: 32 tons (128 ...

Re: Vehicle Handbook - Snow Mobile

Neither an ordinary snowmobile nor this one is an ordinary wheeled vehicle, so I'm not sure Drive (Wheel) is the right specialization. An ordinary snowmobile is driven by a track, but it's not exactly an ordinary tracked vehicle either; it's steered by turning the front skids, not by differential s...

Re: Simple rules clarification

So how about another basic rules question, this one not as solidly set and more up to GM preferences. In other games where you have awareness, perception, spot, or listen checks it makes those situations pretty clear. What do you guys typically do in Traveller for a player to, for example, hear som...

The description needs to be improved. But it'll do for the adventure I'll run.

Ha! Great minds, right?

Re: Vehicle Handbook - Snow Mobile

I'd just call it a light ground vehicle and note that it's designed to operate on snow and not roads. That way, any off-ice/snow driving would suffer the same penalties as a car going off road. With that in mind, I present to you the TL7 snowmobile! TL: 7 Skill: Drive (wheel) Agility: (+0) Speed (Cr...

In the meantime I'll use the system in MgT1 for my players who want to buy their stats in stead of rolling them.
What is the system in MgT1e? 2e is my first exposure to Traveller, so I don't have any 1e books.

Re: The Vehicle Handbook is Here!

Do the chassis options change the cost per unit, or are they additional costs? I ask because some options change the base price per space, like fuel efficiency and structural reinforcement. For example, if I have a light grav vehicle (Cr30,000 per space) and take the open frame option (+Cr10,000 per...
