Re: The Hobbit weekend december the 16th

Perhaps its because up to this point the halflings weren't part of the middle earth lore, all of the other rings were made for one of the races, dwarves had 7, humans had 9 the elves had 3 and sauron made the master ring so perhaps his ring could control any of the human, elvish and dwarvish races ...

Re: Large ships and asteroid belts discussion

Bill: I'm not Matthew, but here is the pertinent rule: If attacked while within an asteroid field , a ship will gain the Stealth 5+ trait (or a +2 bonus to Stealth rolls, if it already possesses the trait), whether attacked from within the field or outside, as the asteroids interfere with precise t...

Re: Newbie questions

2) Hadn't thought of the operating cost of the larger ship, nor of the larger cargo it requires. So that'll probably put a damper on my players entrepreneurial spirits :) My guess is that they'll try this first session and will dive headfirst into bankruptcy. And then steal the ship and start becom...

Re: Any word on Cloaked Romulans?

Hi guys, I'm quite new around here, but wouldn't it work just as well if you simply take left over ship (if any) paint them black with some stars on it. Maybe you slightly highlight some of the angle on it to give it a silhouette. After all, isn't empty space all you should be looking at really. Ju...

Re: KC9R Dreadnought

I will bet you dollars to donuts, most people will squel over a 40 to 50 USD model. Well PP seems to be doing okay with about 100£ models...As far as I know they sell pretty well. Albeit they are bigger models but heck they are resin models rather than metal. Maybe Mongoose gets their resin product...

Well as I understand it it just means all lists must be from feds/klingons/whatever race you wish. Not so that in game 1 you have feds, in game 2 klingons, game 3 roms etc.

Re: News on Samurai of Legend

Saw your post on Facebook last night Matthew. Is Samurai still going on sale today? It is. It is just being tweaked at the moment (actually, Will decided he was not happy with some of the art, so he is changing some pictures and adding more - will look much better after that), but I expect it to go...

Re: New Player with some questions

1. Photons, shoot them whenever you can, +1 for this. The shield penetrating are ones you are looking at. Especially when facing forward shields of klingons where shield hits are practically wasted hits. 3. Just because you've shot all your photons does not mean your ships are out of the fight. The...

Re: Redoing Psionics

Another thought that came up regarding new stat generating. Apart from simply tasks becoming simpler because average DM goes from +0 to +1 this will also lead to increased skill levels. GM's would need to up the difficult tasks artificially by about 2-3 levels...

Re: Online Tabletop RPGs

Ah, but the "eye candy" is the point. The user interface is the dice, cards, tokens, and pieces you see in front of you, just like a real board game. What could be more intuituve than picking up the dice, rolling them, and reading the result, just like you would with your hand? So flower instead of...

2. Stats in general, but Psi in particular - don't roll on 2d6; roll on 1d6+6 for all stats, including Psi. Psi can also be used, much like raw Str, raw Dex and so on, to represent a character's psionic intuition and resistance to psionic intrusion if a non-Telepathic psion. Why such a big boost to...

Re: Online Tabletop RPGs

Looks bit...Clumsy. Generally it's not smartest idea to try to recreate real tabletop to computer. User interface varies so generally that will lead to clumsy and slow. UI should be designed to utilise computer so that effect would be same but faster, more intuitive. Less eye candy perhaps but faste...

I can't understand why people do this, all it does is generate anger at whoever is doing it/the products advertised. Because it generates something more than anger. Specifically: Money. You think they wouldn't do it if it wouldn't actually give money? It doesn't have to have high chance of success ...
