Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Referee’s ruling: Hroal ain’t the surrendering type. Went out in a blaze of glory, roaring with rage and wielding a plasma jet. A good death. Actually the first personal combat we’ve had since the first session where my intended introduction to traveller combat (ambushed by three Oghman raiders whil...

Re: Form follows function.

Is there a point to the 1d-1d approach? Isnt it the same distribution as 2D?

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

So I could swear I posted this last night, but it ain’t here. After a long and frustrsting delay, we finally got in a lengthy session last night. Played Treasure Ship through the battle of Exe. Very well played by my travellers. They turned the plot on its ear, or course. Massive amount of well plan...

Thanks. Should have included the 2D plans in Ships of the Reach as well, but no such luck.

Cool. Does that include any ships that arent also in Ships of the Reach, or is it the exact same?

Re: What Ships would you suggest for Irontooth?

He has a pocket warship and a pile of crap. He is scribed as having about 50 pirates, which is consistent the four ships he is given. You can increase that pile if you want, as long as its crap. Far traders, scout ships, salvage haulers.

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

Thanks. is there really an advantage to using docking space instead of a docking clamp? You have to add a couple more tons to the ship size you have to fuel, and docking space is expensive. I suppose the hull size might get you an extra hardpoint. I.e. a 380 ship with a docking clamp would only get ...

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

Quite expensive, too. Those missiles add up in more ways than one. 16 would likely be decisive in small ship combat.

Well, you rolled a nine on six sided die, so I’d say it went spectacularly well.

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

True. Another thought would be to replace one of the particle barbettes with missiles.

As you might can tell, it really bothers me that in the Treasure Ship adventure the two Gazelles kick ass with missiles they dont have.

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

So here, an attempt at a straight up J-4 Gazelle. It's hard to make a capable vessel this small at J-4, and I resisted the urge to go advanced tech on the jump drive, although you could and gain 6 tons more room. This has the advantage of being a full 10% cheaper than the published standard design. ...

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

So here's my modification of the Gazelle design: - Added the missing Drop tanks - corrected the bridge size - doubled the armor - cut back on the power plant- the Gazelle is massively overpowered as designed. this is still 20% above max usage - added Holographic Controls - reduced computer from 30 t...

Re: What fee would you suggest for both these forces?

Figure out the mortgage payments for the ships, along with their life support and operating costs. Then figure out the salaries for the troops. You have all the tool necessary to do these things. Add 50% for mercenaries' margin.

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

Hey, that's it. Thanks for fixing the image link. Knew it couldn't be that hard. MCr252.8 for a standard issue Gazelle. I’ll agree that as written its got the same function as a Corvette. I look at it as the imperial navy (i.e. high priced, more capable) version. The corvette itself is a little unde...

Re: Gazelle Class Close Escort

So Here's what I think the Gazelle in MgT2 High Guard is supposed to be:

- Corrects the Bridge Size
- Adds the Drop Tank
- Corrects the Pricing

Comes in at about MCr252.8
