Then possibly if a tactician is available to analyse that info.

Re: Would The Aslan comply?

I’d say Aslan would only use limited wars against other Aslan, they wouldn’t trust anyone else to follow the strict rules and conduct. Against anyone else it would probably be a full on attack.

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Mentioning Hroal Irontooth’s psion accomplice, is it possible some mistake was made in the writing and Dai Kinnear was supposed to be the Psion and her Aslan captain actually be Hroal?

Drones (again)

I’ve finally managed to get a look at the vehicle book and there is a chapter about drones but these seem to be full sized craft. Does anyone have any info or ideas how to construct a laptop sized drone? Just reduce the cost because of the size? The thing seems to need 2 spaces just for the comma eq...

Re: Would it work and how?

Wow that’s a hard block of text to even understand. What your asking is could the title of emperor be passed to any one of his 13 children if they are given a ship and ten years to prove their worth? Sure, why not, it’s as good a system as any, but what do the offspring need to do in order to prove ...

Re: What would be reasonable sized attacking fleets?

Oh another gazillion ships with a billion Worlds. These numbers mean nothing as they are so vast that it’s almost impossible to imagine. Are you planning on placing every single ship here listed on the map? I’m guessing the reason they used attack dice for adventure 10 is to stop ludicrous numbers l...

Re: The futility of Pirates of Drinax?

Does the 5th frontier war effect this area? The wiki says it largely takes place in the Spinward Marches.

Re: Vanguard - A Traveller Miniatures Game

I know it’s a bit different but Modiphius offering their starship maps as PDFs have been very handy so a digital version of this would be great, even if I have to put one together by using free rules and purchased starship tiles, which of course would be very useful in my regular Traveller game too.

Re: What fee would you suggest for both these forces?

So you decided the players will hire these exact ships? What if they don’t? You can’t railroad players this much. You can make those ships available for hire but the PCs won’t always do what you expects.

What do Alpha Complex corridors look like?

So I’m hopefully start a game soon with a group of new to Paranoia players and just wondered how people describe the various areas of Alpha Complex? I can see ultraviolet corridors being all sheening white high tech looking but what about the lowers levels? I see them being base grey concrete with 1...

Re: So, what's with the supplements?

I’d like to see one system for each race give the amount of detail Theev was in the Drinax PDFs. Tyokh for the Aslan etc. Doesn’t have to be a book entry but PDF support material would be very useful.

Re: Pirates: Revolution on Acrid

I didn’t even see it had a highport. If so then I’d have it be a control point for the weather control systems and that link up with those on the ground to create the entry tunnel. I’d also have it be fairly small as Treasure Ship mentions a planetary landing and not a highport docking.

Re: So, what's with the supplements?

I think it has to be the alien books for me. Players are able to roll up an Aslan or Vargyr in the core book but have little to draw upon about their society etc. Drinax did a great job with expanding the Aslan but all those other aliens, including the human offshoots are little more than names if y...

Re: So, what's with the supplements?

I love what you’ve done with 2nd Edition. The difference between the two version of Drinax is incredible and while I’m looking forward to more 2e stuff there are a few 1e books that would prove useful if only for the world building. My biggest issue with this is the PDF prices. I would love for you ...
