Re: Robot's Social Standing

rust: I think they've always "been" there, just as tools and other things (like the mobile power generator from star wars - little more than intelligent (but not sentient) tools that know to be in the right place at the right time and not to get in the way if they can help it). A repair droid that k...

Re: Robot's Social Standing

Well, as far as Marc Miller's OTU is concerned... just who would allow a sentient robot to fully integrate... 3I? No way jose... Zhodani? Nope - they're more mind-dead than the Proles... Sword-Worlders? Can't see it myself... Darrians? I could possibly see it in a "respecting technology" kind of way...

Re: Future of MGT-Aids

BFalcon you've made a good point but if I may say that - the "list" is for everyone, it's purpose is to serve the community of players and GMs who are fans of MGT. It is *not* intended as a replacement or competitor to the MGP Forums or CotI over at Quicklink Interactive (or anywhere that is focuse...

Re: Any news on fleet box contents and pricing?

Halfbat: On the main page, click on Upcoming Releases (not the links below it) and you'll see all the upcoming releases - the ACTA: SF minis aren't links right now - so don't show up anywhere else.

Re: A2089 Novels

Already on my wishlist, LBH.. :)

Won't be getting it though - some SOBs in the Traveller forum got me reading the Honor Harrington series... and I'm still wading through them... I can't put them down now.

I'll be getting it when I'm done though. :)

Re: Future of MGT-Aids

Not me - just remember the spam my mailbox got constantly (important when I run my own business, so an incoming mail *might* be important) and I also remember what happened to Geocities when Yahoo took it over... so I pretty much equate them with microsoft on the "trust them" stakes.

Re: Fleet compostion Question.

I'm not playing right now, but speaking from experience in previous games (systems), proxy as little as you can get away with - the prospect (as has been mentioned) for arguments is just too high for the risk to be worthwhile - friendships can be soured that way. If he likes the different fleets, su...

Re: ACTA SF

Do we (ie you and me) care about the exact placement of the phasers or if the windows are slightly too large etc etc - nope not a bit - If the design people are happy to accomodate the perfectionists for every extremely minor detail to be correct AND it does not slow down the process / make the mod...

Re: ACTA SF

Minsicule detail changes are being asked for, as if the models are being designed by reference to the rules, when it is the rules which need to fit the models. Make the models look as good as they can, and then make the rules fit. It's about playing with cool toys, so focus on them rather than the ...

Re: Hand Shields

Also, remember this is a MELEE weapon; built at a high TL, but still a melee weapon. Doesn't block bullets, or lasers or plasma (or fusion). At the TL it is built at, how many people are going to attack with melee weapons? Scum and villainy, that's all; the hand-shield is designed for that and as s...

Re: Matter Disintegrators

Zero: precisely the reason why I keep the rolls written down for when I do need them - players learn quickly enough that just because I asked for a roll, it doesn't mean I actually wanted one right then... It also makes ambushes a lot more surprising - no dice rolls to alert players, so I catch the ...

Well, depends if they want to actually do anything remotely complicated in vacuum, I guess... if not, then they won't need the vacc suit checks... but I'd be asking them to make them in any environment that's not friendly to humans... 1 kilolitre of water would be 1 ton of mass, but I'm not sure abo...

Re: Matter Disintegrators

BP: I do a lot of rolls for my players, but at weird times, noting the results... so when I need a result, there's not usually a dice-roll involved, just checking the results. Occasionally, if I don't mind the paperwork, I'll get players to make a load of rolls and record the results for me. They st...

The place for such expectations is the The Rulemasters forum. Many such 'issues' are unresolvable by the posters on this forum - and many of these topics have been covered over and over again.
