Sigh... Political correctness and cultural cluelessness strikes again!

What's next? We erase all the nude art pieces from Mongoose's Conan books lest we offend the religionists and rabid feminists?

What other group of cry-babies can we appease?

I just don't get Lethal Zones.

Yes, I've the errata, but it doesn't tell me mucht. What kind of extra damage dice am I supposed to roll? Can someone give me an example of play?

I picked up the True 20 version of this not too long ago from drivethru, but I only had a chance to glance through it. I was hoping to read through it and see if there was anything that could be used for Traveller. It looks like you guys will be taking care of that for me. :D

I tried it ONCE; however, my father saw what I was trying to do and went of a patriotic rant about how I was "defacing the currency."

Now I use these thin, plastic gaming tokens I pick up at the FLGS.

Hammer Slammer's Merc Company/Vehicle book?

Hey... I'm really digging the new Hammer's Slammers source book and I'd like to see more. Does Mongoose any plans for a sourcebook on the the other mercenary companies and their vehicles?

I picked it up at Origins and read it over the weekend.

I like it!

My only nitpick is some of the artwork. It's good, but some it seems out of place: Steuben and Ranson's character pictures have them wearing business suits! (Hardly Slammer's regulation.)

Lord Ksárul commands it made so!!!
Why? So it may languish in the Prince of the Blue Room's Temple in Bey Su, gathering dust? However, our Great Lord Thumis would make the rules availble to all! All praise the God of Wisdom!

I'm looking at the Dragon Warriors demo from Free RPG Day and I'm thinking that this might be a good candidate for EPT gaming. I'll have to pick up a copy of the full game to make a final decision.

Ahhhh Tekumel! My favorite fantasy setting! Sadly, I'm yet to find a set of rules for this EPT that I like: The setting has evolved well past the scope of the original TSR rules (though, out of them all, they are my favorite), Swords & Glory and Tekumel: Empire of the Petal Throne are way too crunch...

B5 Traveller Question

When generating a character from the Traveller book for B5, what should I do when I role a skill that isn't appropriate for the setting? For instance: If I'm creating a Marine, what should I do if I roll the Battledress skill?

Actually, I'm quite thrilled that SW is getting a license for Space 1889. (Speaking of which, I played Deadlands Reloaded at a local mini-con last weekend and had a GREAT time. I played a pre-genned Huckster from New Orleans, so I got to lay the faux-Cajun accent on really thick, mon enfants. ) That...
