One of my friends went through 8 characters in classic traveller, before she rolled one that made it.
3 of them died from rolling double 6 on the re-enlistment roll (thus being forced to re-enlist) and then dying in the following term

I have a strong feeling that the ranges were assigned arbitrarily, rather than a strict "1 inch equals X meters" formula.

All this confusion makes me wonder why people didn't create a different open source license type, rather than borrow the one from WOTC

GM guide. Reach issues

I love the idea of reach affecting initiative again but there's a few issues: This changes the balance of things: Melee actions will have a slight advantage compared to non-combat actions (propably not a big deal) and spell casting (could be an issue, though with magic being a bit harder to resist n...

Combat and injury questions and rules

I forget if I have posted this before, so forgive me :) Im thinking of slightly tweaking the opposed roll combat to the following: Attacker succeeds - Defender succeeds with a higher roll: Attack avoided (as it is now) Defender succeeds, but a lower roll: Use the benefits from the original book (red...

Saw a few of them at the store, and they do look very nice. I like the hardbacks for durability, but I'll take the perfect softbacks over warped hardbacks

they are both great, but I'd say Cults 2 is more immediately applicable to game play

Pleased with Elf book

I just bought the elf book today and was very pleased.

Certainly went a long way to make me want to use these guys more :)

On a normal gaming table, with 15mm guys, you should pretty much be able to fire at anything in LOS, ala Crossfire.

I'd say just keep the ranges.

If you want to use a smaller table, then just use CM instead. Cant see why it wouldnt work, though a few things could get fiddly

Alternatively mess with the scenarios. Tigers should be pretty damn rare. If its a campaign, give them a single tiger for one battle.. then its either out of fuel, the engine's cooked or its knocked out by an enterprising "jabo".

44 France, the kraut infantry are far more likely to have Stug's

Runequest inconsistencies and errors ? Core rulebook

I am working on some modifications for our game, and I was wondering.. does anyone have a list, or can help compile a list, of rule errors and outright problems ? Let me clarify what I am looking for: I am (right now) only looking at the core books (rulebook and Companion.. if you have the deluxe bo...

Its hard to compare prices. The two GURPS core books will let you do more gaming than twice the same value of books from another company (and SJG did replace the damaged 1st printings for free)

For what its worth though, I like the look of the 'goose's Traveller book. It looks like a Traveller book.
