Re: Fed heavy command cruiser

You two, stop teasing the poor fella... you'll give him a nervous breakdown after all this... :)

I suspect it'll be a case of "when we know, you'll know, but until then...". Annoying, I know, but...

I'm still trying to find a way just to afford a squadron box, let alone anything else. :(

Re: Legend for just $1!

Can I also say: Excellent plan with the cover, Matthew and co... a plain cover always looks better on the shelf and helps to unify the whole collection. My Traveller collection looks good and the Legend one that will someday sit alongside it will also look as good. Compare that to the Rifts and Shad...

Firstly, OK... who's the "The Firm" fan who named the scenario?? :) (That's a Star Trekkin' reference in case you hadn't got it...) Everything looks good... I do like the choice of font too... trek/SFC without being unreadable or hard on the eyes... :) I'd also like to add my thanks to Matt for putt...

Re: Legend for just $1!

Either way, I found it online while looking for Traveller stuff and I have to admit, the system is very interesting. It's very similar to a sci-fi system a friend and myself made up, but with a few notable changes, making it very comfortable to grasp for me. I think the $1 rulebook is an excellent i...

Re: Merchant Prince Purchase and Sale modifiers

Basically, the way to look at it is this: If someone is in plentiful supply, the prices go down - so why would a buyer pay more? Likewise, if demand is high but supply low (such as food or medical supplies on an asteroid base), the prices go up (sometimes drastically). So the rules actually make sen...

Re: Mongoose minis for VAS?

Sadly, I went 1/3000 scale... and Mongoose is going 1/2400...

On the other hand, 1/2400 scale isn't common over here in the UK, so it might prove to be profitable to supply...

Depends on how expensive the models will be... any idea, Matt?

Re: Morale Rules

Good luck - I would urge you to consider a victory points system that counts surviving ships that are crippled as at least half a ship, if not full value... it might convince them to pull the ships out themselves... and you'd need to be careful not to impose any rules that would stop a withdrawing s...

Re: Morale Rules

Yes, Age of Sail, each captain was pretty much left to his own devices, unless they could get a signal across... in WWII, they had the signal lamps, which made things easier to coordinate (as opposed to someone running flags up or standing there in plain sight using semaphore...). Yeah, I guess it's...

Re: Morale Rules

Well, one good way is, rather than morale, to award "victory points" at the end of the game for a surviving ship, even if it's crippled... rather than simply ignoring it. There will be times when an enemy ship is nearly defeated and it's the main goal of the engagement, but then they would keep figh...
