If something Scribus related comes out of this that’d be great.

Re: Converting 5th D&D races to Traveller 2nd Edition

Isn’t advantage/disadvantage similar enough to 2nd Ed’s Boon and Bane dice to use rather than creating another subsystem to accommodate drow?

Re: Question about poisons

We did this on Treasure Ship as the PCs tranq gassed the entire crew using the air system. With the gas continuously in each room I had the cre make a new End check each round until they got out of a filled room

Shipping livestock

This was something that came up in last nights game and just out of curiosity I have a few questions that people may be able to shed some light on. 1 how many goat-sized creatures would a ton of cargo contain? 2 would the crate have grazing space or would the be penned in battery style? 3 A thing we...

Re: When is a starport not

I think the patron requires so many Mcr to put into it to make the place a haven so I’m guessing there must be at least some level of structure to it rather than just a flat landing spot b

Re: When is a starport not

GeDeCo is technically an Imperium company so maybe their ability to build space ports is done with Imperium authority, with the I3 taking a little cash off the top as taxes. The patron plot for Number One is for the PC to establish a ew spaceport so one dome doesn’t hold the monopoly. This one would...

Re: The passage of time in low berths

I assumed it was similar to fast drugs which slows time to 1/60th. Maybe double it for low births to warrant the expense.

Where did the Verpexers go?

A subplot in Ihatei is that some Verpexers are possibly taken from Drinax’s surface by Aslan scouts. Where do they go? I’ve looked the adventure over but apart from the scout being on Kteoria there is no mention of the humans. Is this picked up elsewhere or just left for the GM to use. It seems odd ...

Re: A Suitable Fleet

M J Dougherty’s post still stands. Just how many campaigns of Drinax are being run here? The questions are all about having a gazillion ships fighting another gazillion ships. I think on that scale a game of Risk is more useful.

Re: What should The GM do?

If you don’t want a PC to have stuff don’t make it available especially on a dice roll. Admit it was a mistake and start again before it gets out of hand.

Re: How Do You (Logically) Prevent Players from Skipping Payments?

Would pirates even make payments, unless it was to give a sense of normalcy to their operations. Banks may obvious have to pay more to a reclaimation team that takes on a pirate rather than a scout who just tried to skip out on paying. Yup the pirates may get away with it but st least the bank gets ...

Re: How Do You (Logically) Prevent Players from Skipping Payments?

Intergalactic bailiffs. Eventually it will be worth just reclaiming the ship. The scouts must have to do this every so often as well.

Can you shed any light on which sector a bulk of this will take place in? I’d love to see stuff outside of the areas we’ve already seen campaigns take place.

I may have misunderstood this, if he’s staying aboard ship to avoid paying costs. Ok the Soc penalty when word gets out should be inforced. But if he’s staying on ship to avoid adventure then why bother playing? A DnD player that has their character stay at the inn and not go to the dungeon this is ...

Re: Question About Quartering

Also some planets may have a maximum stay policy to stop ships just landing and monopolising a spot. After a few days they may be asked to leave and refusal or violence on the PCs part could also reduce his social score.

Re: What would he do?

These questions really are getting more niche!! Why does he have to reveal himself, why not release the info anonymously. Even then if the guy escaped he’s in trouble for shirking the due process of the law.

Thanks. It was one of my players that pointed this out but he may be using a different version of High Guard not 2e. I’ll make a note of what you’ve said.
