Re: New Era, how accurate?

The mid-to-late eighties were an era of intense wargames for GDW and the community absolutely supported militarisation of role-playing games. :? GDW was first and foremost a wargame publisher that also published a few RPGs. It happened to be that those RPGs are pretty awesome. https://en.wikipedia....

Re: New Era, how accurate?

/pulls up old man pants If I'm reading some of the items posted here, I'm under the impression that Mongoose is looking to spend more time exploring the classic milieu of 1105. http://forum.mongoosepublishing.com/viewtopic.php?t=122445 Which suits me just fine. When MT and later NTE came out, IMO, t...

Re: Are Multiple Medic Checks Allowed?

Don't forget to apply the effect result as damage. Core Rulebook pg. 78 Note that failed Medic checks can easily end up causing the patient more damage - we recommend you see trained doctors only! That player needing first aid may not want to risk another failed check. Then the likely move may be to...

The Answerins

Anyone have a homebrew work up for the Answerins? https://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Answerin Right now I'm thinking STR -1 DEX +1 END -1, and for their Adrenalin Surge, a modified version of Combat Drug. That being an instant affect for 1 minute with a follow up Fatigue condition that last for 1 hour. M...

Re: The Best Background Skills

Hmmm...will have to read a bit more about LUCK in the Companion. Since Ursus mentioned stat rolling, I'm thinking of allowing each player two Boon die to use during stat rolls....and maybe allow a re-roll on snake eyes.

Re: The Best Background Skills

This is pretty cool....but the old grognard in me chafes just a little bit :D After many years of playing RPGs (I first picked the LBBs in '79....for $12 :) ), I've recently developed an aversion to the min/max approach to character creation. While having a player understand THE HOW of acquiring ski...

Re: Astrogation check

Is there any understanding of how long an astrogation check/jump plot is good? A few hours, a day or several days? Is it very sensitive to the jump out location in a system? Could you make the check as soon as you jumped into a system so that you could jump out at a moments notice? In the Spacecraf...

Re: Official Traveller Core Rulebook Update

I recently purchased the Core book and also received the PDF here, from the Mongoose webstore. Is there a way to check what version PDF I have? I noticed the PDF has a pretty glaring discrepancy on pages 19 and 22 with the Army Cavalry assignment survival rolls. Page 19 it's DEX 7+ and on page 22 it...

Re: Third Imperium and Traveller Lore

The Traveller Wiki would be a good start https://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Main_Page And don't forget the Traveller Map https://travellermap.com/ The Traveller Companion has a really good write up on using the Traveller Map, and it's probably one of the best resource tools any RPG has ever had produced.
