Re: Shadows of Sindal Thread (Spoilers)

Their position is that the bioagent, if applied to human worlds, would only have an impact on Aslan if the Aslan were there. Given that under the treaty the Aslan are not supposed to be there there should be no impact. Many of the Aslan in the Trojan Reach do not believe the treaty — the Peace of F...

Re: Confused about the Ihatei

There's text in The Glorious Empire that describes ihatei expeditions as if they were entrepreneurial ventures. Second sons develop their own plans — some of them shrewd and some harebrained — and then go off to try to establish a colony. If the colony is successful, they receive significantly more ...

Just use the Navy NCO ranks from the Core Rulebook. Those should work.

Re: Ship serial numbers

Is there an "official" way to generate a serial number for a vessel? Or should I just type some random stuff that looks cool? :) Rule of cool.

Re: Concept for a campaign kickoff (module spoilers)

The one thing I am still trying to figure out is how the heck to get them from Albe a little further Rimward, closer to Exocet. I really don't want to run another adventure to get them there, since I am eager to start PoD. Well, I know you said you don't want to run another adventure en route from ...

Re: Concept for a campaign kickoff (module spoilers)

I’m doing something similar with a new campaign group that I recently started. I ran them through “Islands in the Rift,” and unbeknownst to them, they are about to wake up in “Flatlined.” After that, they, too, are off to claim their ship, but it is on New Moscow, where we will run Mercenary Adventu...

Re: Robotic ships

I am one of the people mentioned in this thread believing that you needed a sophont aboard a ship to be able to jump.

Re: Vehicles: "Cruise Performance"?

This rule results in negligible performance benefits unless a vehicle has a long recharge time. For example, if your vehicle's maximum speed is 300kph (high), and your range is 400, you can travel for 1.33 hours until it's time to recharge. If you go at its cruising speed of 200kph (medium) with you...

Re: Anyone used The Great Rift as basis of campaign?

I'm running a campaign that started with Islands in the Rift , so that might count. The thing is, we'll be running Flatlined next which is likely to end up taking them out of the Great Rift. The Islands subsectors are a great place to start a campaign, but for my money, I can't resist the pull of th...

Re: Building a flying city

The Vehicle Handbook combined with the Space Station rules from High Guard might be able to manage this, but a vehicle of that size might challenge the Handbook's scale. Haven't tried it yet, but might be worth a look.

Re: Vector based space combat

We just ran the combat at the end of Islands in the Rift and I was tempted to revert to some of our house rules, but I’m refereeing some new players and one requested that we run it with the RAW. It went pretty well. Not vector-based, obviously, but fast and efficient. We were able to get back to th...
