Adding armor and/or stealth to your starship

Based on the rules described in MgT2 High Guard, do you think it's possible to add armor and/or stealth modifications to a starship? Or would those be additions built into the hull at the shipyard when the ship was constructed? My players have an Empress Marava far trader and have survived their fir...

Re: Zhodani Ships

Well, they're not exactly illustrations, but Ad Astra games has some Zhodani naval fleet mini photos on their site: You might not have wanted capital ships, but this will at least give you a sense of the architectural l...

Re: Robot Characters

Love the group. Very diverse. Off topic, but how did you go about creating the Droyne character? I have the CT Droyne book, but I don't know if Mongoose has published an updated version somewhere. The reason I ask is, if one of my players ever takes the ref mantle (I do all of the reffing as of now)...

Re: Why Sindal?

Sindal has a really wild, dysfunctional feel to it with lots of potential for intrigue and culture clashes. You have a small Imperial presence coreward, but the largest world, Albe, is undergoing massive population pressure issues. You have an organized crime presence just over the Imperial border a...

Re: NPCs accompanying the party

I was intending to present my players with the opportunity to go find the Amuar, after purchasing Mongoose's latest adventure, but wondered about having ever-present NPCs with the party -- particularly the patron/captain/boss (Erek). Wouldn't the NPCs either end up being a vehicle for steering the ...

Re: Interstellar law in non-aligned space

Going off on a tangent, but still sticking to the salvage discussion, for anyone who has read Mongoose's new Last Flight of the Amuar adventure. SPOILER ALERT (since the following question exposes aspects of the story): What do you imagine the salvage reward might be for the Amuar, incorporating the...

Re: Taking / Claiming ships

Already a few ideas are being discussed between a few of the experienced players and those brand new to Traveller. One of their ideas (depending on how they roll characters) is to become pirate hunters. Sounds like a great idea for a campaign. Depending on how much detail you want to go into, all t...

Re: The Imperial Church

Can the patriarch be a woman? We're 3,600 years into the future and gender roles are likely to evolve and overlap further. Furthermore, there could be a legacy to using the term "patriarch" regardless of gender. Traveller has the convention of referring to empresses as emperors.

Re: Reach Adventure 4: Last Flight of the Amuar - on Drivethru

Great work on this one guys. I read it cover to cover the day it came out and can't wait to run it.
