Pre-generating Characters?

Is this worth the effort? Currently working up potential characters, but can't help wondering if it's worth the trouble! Using Clement Sector and 1e rules I've so far developed an Luna born Uplifted Gorilla and former Marine whose a talented sculptor working with a former Politician turned Reporter ...

Re: Starter Kit Book 1 as a separate item?

Back during Mongoose Traveller 1e I eventually bought the others a copy of the pocket rulebook to speed up character generation by email.
Any chance of a Pocket core rulebook version of 2e Traveller being planned?

Re: [GK Games] A Fifth of 21 Plots

Picked up a copy, went through it and eventually decided to piece meal a potential campaign or game idea from a mix of the ideas within! So far have the following NPCs thought up: Countessa Margaret Phillipa a noblewoman who was kidnapped by a suitor who was attempting to smuggle her back through th...

So about Historia Rodentia?

Has anyone tried using the races from this book using the regular Legend core rules rather than sticking to Historia Rodentia only?

Traveller Clement Sector Uplift Question

Has anyone created an Uplifted character with any rendition of Traveller rules?

In the process of creating an Uplifted Gorilla character getting a serious Overwatch vibe from it so far! :D

How did it work out for you?

Re: 2300AD - Standalone RPG?

I'd say yes. I have the 1e books of T2300 I have the 2e core rules it would require something special to make me want to buy those books again! Now combining a version of the core rules using the T2300 setting that would be interesting to me even today I'm learning new things about the Traveller RPG...

Re: What happened to Zero-G?

Interesting idea, been watching the Expanse and their use of Vacc Suits.
I still think there's a place for the zero g skill perhaps a new Athletics speciality instead of Dexterity?

Re: What happened to Zero-G?

So someone who spent two decades working in the depths of space is less capable in zero g than the Olympic athlete who has never left his home world his entire life? Using the Vacc Suit skill might help, but what was the reason for this change? I admit I was more annoyed they swapped out Social from...

Re: Traveller Starter Set - on Drivethru!

Someone on another forum has asked a very good question. Will the campaign in Book 3 be made available to purchase as a separate entity for those who already have the CRB2e? I'm also curious about this but I'm still waiting for a review that makes me want to buy this! So far what information I've b...

Re: Traveller Starter Set - on Drivethru!

How does it compare to the core rulebook?

Can it be used without it?

Looks interesting, a bit pricey but the reviews should hopefully demonstrate it's worth it.

Sorry but this involves spoiler (sort of) so please be careful okay? Just got thinking about the AI in that game and the opening got me wondering what if the AI actually is linked to the wife of an important NPC who is in cryo aboard the PCs inherited ship, so its actually she who he's conversing wi...

Just how far is too far?

I've been wondering about a game idea that i think stretches things a bit too much. The idea I'm trying to work out involves the discovery of the jump drive but not the traditional travel between star systems version. The short explanation is that a multi-national attempt to develop the first workin...

Re: Mars Preparation Question

How would they react if say one of the other nations was sending a probe there? By that I assume they have no idea anything has been discovered but its noted they're heading for an area close enough that it would be hard for them to miss the obvious signs? Would they panic and accelerate the mission...
