Re: HG 2e Medical Bay and Central Supply Catalog (CSC) Autodoc

The conversion from vehicle spaces to dtons varies per vehicle type. Most convert at 0.5 tons per space, but there are several exceptions. This is listed for each vehicle type, and appears to take into account the relative size/weight ratio of various vehicle types, and in the case of the airship, t...

Re: 2D deckplans for Drinax ships

They exist for the Aslan Ships at least. They came with my purchase of the Aslan Highguard PDF. Or maybe I had to ask for them separately. I’ve never seen 2D renderings of the other Drinax ships, other than the Harrier itself. I think Paltrysum did a set for the Harrier. If you’ve purchase the Drina...

Re: What would you like to see?

Yes. . .a really detailed look at a system, rather than a sector, would be a lot of fun. I like what MJD did with the Borderland Supplement on Inurin, but dig down another two levels of of detail, complete with personalities. A star system, especially a trinary system like he described, is a big pla...

Re: HG 2e Medical Bay and Central Supply Catalog (CSC) Autodoc

My thought is (despite what the books says) is that it has to be a little bigger than a low berth to do its job, so I go with 1 dton. YMMV.

Re: What do your PCs look like?

So we had the players search not just for an image of their PC, but also the three other PCs in our latest adventure so we could compare. The names across the top are the PC making the choice, the vertical names are who is pictured. So self portraits run from top left to bottom right. I think a few ...

Re: What do your PCs look like?

I rather like the Heroforge page, if you've seen that. https://www.heroforge.com/ Has the advantage that you can actually get a 3d sculpt of the character you design, and there's enough generic space armour, clothing and weapons to produce most characters. I hadn’t seen that before. I can see how y...

What do your PCs look like?

Do any of you put effort into the appearances of your travellers? My players recently had a (lighthearted) argument over what they looked like, so i encouraged them to find representative images of their characters. Pinterest is a decent repository of concept art. After one player tried to convince ...

I do have one I did for ship options (like the one I did for 1st edition). Could put an image of that up if there be interest. (Not spread out in as many books as the 1st edition got to (yet)).
I certainly would like to take a look.

Re: Consolidated Bestiary and Player Races

The same could be said for ships, ship options, and gear. An online reference would be nice, but probably not nice enough for anyone to do it. An online index for each book for easy searching would probably be enough.

It would certainly be nice for players to receive a free updated version of all published ships,
It would. I've given up on beating that drum, however.

For #3, Mongoose uses Comm skill in where persuade or diplomacy makes more sense. Never understood it. Go with what makes sense to you. For #4, the Pirates of Drinax was originally written for Mongoose 1st edition, in which the gazelles had missiles. Just got missed in the editing for 2nd edition. W...

Re: Memorable quotes from you traveller games

So this might be cheating because the quote was from an NPC (i.e., me) to a PC, but I like it anyway: “Junior, I love you, and I do feel responsible for you getting infecting by a nanobot virus. Twice, actually. But there’s no way I’m giving you a fusion rifle. . .or battledress, so don’t even ask.”

Re: The Beyond is a mess

You need to tackle A LOT of sectors, and them post them (or sell them as a TAS product which I would gladly pay for), so one day I can use them for a Deepnight Revelation Campaign. Of course, we’ll need to see how many sectors are prepared in the official campaign guides. I think there are six expan...

Re: Anyone else read “The Expanse” series?

This ties in with my comments on my dreamed up homebrew setting in another thread. I think the MgT2 rules would have to be tweaked more for an Expanse type setting. The deal with the Epstein drive is that is doesn’t have a specified limit on what acceleration it can produce. Every ship with an Epste...

Ah, you’re the guy worried about the fuel processors. I responded to an old comment you made about the lack of processors on the kickstarter page. I think it was on update #16. Go take a look at it. Short version is, the ship is so good, it doesn’t need no stinking fuel processors. I see your point...
