Re: Trade codes for multi-world systems

I'm wondering how to handle trade codes in a system using the Scouts system generation rules and with more than one inhabited world. What would be the best way to handle this? There are two options, the trade codes for the system are just taken from a designated 'main world', or the trade codes for...

It appears that the hosting company has resolved the issue that caused SFRPG.org.uk to become unaccessible. The boards are now up and running again, although members appear to need to log back in again.

I think it's in MT where each service has its own coloured Imperial Sunburst - I seem to recall that the Imperial Marines' sunburst is maroon. Others may have better memories than a rusty old Hiver... MT Players Handbook, p27 to be precise. Maroon for the Marines, Black for the Army, Yellow for the...

The font used in Mongoose Traveller books is Scala sans for the main text and Eras ITC - Demi for the titles. Personally, I find Scala really hard to read at the size Mongoose use in the Traveller books - hence I buy the books and the pdfs ;). For Spica books (i.e. CB1) we went retro-CT and used goo...
