Re: Traveller 2300 query

So does anyone know if the British BC-7 Robot Cargo Carrier would work better as an automated transport then using an automated Thorez?

Also would Bavarians use a Myrmidon Corvette and be able to do so in the Solar System without drawing unnecessary attention?

Re: Passengers 2016 Movie Query

Could be much worse as most of the passengers were recruited as spare parts to maintain the lives of the "elite" meaning many don't survive the trip because they were harvested as part of insuring the low berth failures don't effect the wealthiest members of the passengers... There was a movie where...

Passengers 2016 Movie Query

So with the Passengers 2016 Movie Trailer I was wondering how you would handle this as an actual game concept? From what I've heard there's some somewhat creepy aspects to the story, but until its released I won't know for sure! So I've been wondering about this but don't know whether Traveller 2300...

Re: Ideas?

Don't. From what I recall of that series Xanna's intent was always destruction if you want Xanna to become Grandfather then treat them as the same character not create a game where your players have already lost before the game begins! Now I'd recommend Traveller the New Era if you're interested in ...

Re: Traveller 2300 query

So I'm looking at developing a game idea for Traveller 2300 using the Traveller RPG (2.0 or 1.0 got both just the 2.0 core rulebook mind you!) and have a couple of ideas how to start it off but I'm not a Traveller 2300 expert so wanted to see what you think? The first idea I've tried getting advice ...

Keep them off world of course! And keep it a secret in case its needed say to stop a massive meteor hitting the character's home world or if someone's blackmailing the character's and need an impromptu distraction with the means to cause it to self destruct if used since if the only people who know ...

Anyone know about the Dakaar Freighter?

Have someone on Facebook asking about this.

Their information is that its from Classic Traveller I was wondering if it had been updated since then and whether there exists any deck plans on that class of freighter?
