Questions about Attributes and Damage

Hi all, I was reading the Core Rules for MGT2 and ran into a couple of gaps that I couldn't find anything to fill, so I'll give them an ask below. 1) INT and EDU DAMAGE: So, I saw a remark that said EDU damage was basically memory loss. Sweet, amnesia. But how in the heck is this accomplished? What ...

Re: What should she do?

Odd, I thought MGT2 wasn't supposed to be very different from MGT1?

Re: What should she do?

Sorry to pop in without an answer, but if you don't mind my asking: what system does she use that isn't MGT2? And why does she think MGT2 is easier?

Re: Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

There's someone on the CotI forums known as BlindGuy, a blind person into rpgs, including Traveller. You should head over to travellerrpg.com and look him up, he has been experiencing much of what you're asking about for a while now and could give you a much better perspective on things than many o...

Mongoose PDFs question

Hey all, Looking to buy some of the MGT2 pdfs, but wondering if I can get from Mongoose itself. The PDF prices are listed in pounds, but I live in the USA. Do I need to use Drivethrurpg or can I still get them from Mongoose? I'd rather support Mongoose directly for their creations than go through a ...

Re: Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

Wow. That map is amazing. Yeah... that map... might be very hard to convert to a blind friendly mode. That's just for systems and what they contain I take it? More a navigation aid than anything else? If so, I might have an easier time making a homebrew setting, lol. Thanks! I actually did an exper...

Re: Non-lethal weapons

In real life today, we actually have sonic weaponry that can disorient you, knock you out, make you vomit and sometimes defecate, cause traumatic brain injury, and with enough intensity cause you to internally bleed. It's not uncommon for SWAT teams in major urban areas to utilize the ones that disa...

Re: Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

Is there by chance a repository for player created game aids such as Excel sheets for record keeping or the like? These might give you a starting point: http://www.freelancetraveller.com/infocenter/swlist/others.html http://www.freelancetraveller.com/infocenter/travnet.html Thank you, AndrewW :)

Re: Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

That definitely sounds workable, then! I ran into some very helpful people on the Discord mentioned in this forum, too. A lot of this game seems to be data driven, and from what I understand -- that's good. Anything you can sort and search that doesn't use images is a good thing. Is there by chance ...

Re: Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

Thanks Andrew! That last sentence is very good to hear! When I try games blind, positional stuff becomes more about called distances and orientations (I like to use the clockface relative to the POV being described to), tokens generally place just for an aid more than anything to scale. I've not fou...

Re: Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

Heya, Thanks for replying! The chess-like grid labeling is definitely helpful for a lot of games :) So Traveller does use maps for stuff then? Are they grid or hex? How complicated is the map usage, do you have any examples or know where I can find some? I don't actually play this game yet. I'm look...

Questions about playing while Visually Impaired

Hi all, I've recently lost a fair amount of my vision, and have no idea how long I will have what remains. That said, I've been going around on various RPG and Table Top forums trying to collect tips, tricks, and opinions on playing games like this while visually impaired and even fully blind. Why t...
