Re: A Clutch of PDFs Coming - Traveller & 2300AD

Looking forward to the books - as a fellow book man to another, Matt. How long till drivethrough converts them over? Any chance we could see an updated release calendar - I have no problems in waiting so long they are of high quality which I think consistently you do for Traveller - just people have...

Re: Alien Module 5: Solomani - on PDF

Why is the last page of the PDF corrupted, I get an error - it states wrong operand type? I downloaded it twice on different occasions and still get the same error. Just about to upload a file which should hopefully take care of that. Sorry to inform you Matt...did not resolve anything...same error.

Re: [2300AD] Missing nation in the book..

I see your point and agree, but I also see that the entire background history of 2300 AD was influenced far more by the limited knowledge of the original authors than by any real world geopolitics. For example, the role of Bavaria (where I am from) in the game's background hi- story is simply ridic...

Re: Alien Module 4 Zhodani: ADDAXUR Questions and Questionna

Ok, we disagree about Pulver's aliens (and yes, I know these are his Spacemaster aliens but does not defeat the point that we could be dealing with a species capable of metamorphism and hence two radically different civilizations of the same species - think what butterflies/frogs would have in commo...

Re: Alien Module 4 Zhodani: ADDAXUR Questions and Questionna

And, maybe, we could be dealing with a sentient being that is capable of metamorphism? Hence both could be accurate but told from a different point of view. But, if I were to cast my vote, I liked the GURPS version more. Sorry DonM yours were too close what has already been written and GT broke the ...

Total Recall 2300AD is what I would like to see. Colin? Dunn, that is...there also was a short lived Canadian mini series also called Total Recall which was quite good for the future.

Re: 2300AD is Back!

I may get the 2300 sourcebook, but if I do it will be to convert it over to another system. I simply like the system I use and really don't want to flip over to a whole new system. So would it be very hard to use the 2300 sourcebook as a guide to creatingthe setting with a 3d6 system like gurps? Al...

Re: Altering combat lethality

Double the dice for damage. Keep armour as is. Realistically, I would want to see the whole thing redone as a Snapshot supplement but the task of untangling combat is a game jenga pull too much and the whole thing comes down. So, I do not envy the writer. Best combat rules that I have seen are in Ku...

Re: Looking for a setting

Hard SF = Outer Veil

Space Opera = Twilight Terra Sol
Hard Space Opera = Third Imperium

Why no netrunning? It was in the Earth/Cybertech sourcebook (with a distictly anachronistic feel, granted - DOS towers indeed!)

Re: Mongoose and the 5th Frontier War

I don't think the Rebellion wrecked the Imperium as it did refine it. Take the DGP boys who laid out all the sectors on the ground from Atlas of the Imperium and said what will is there - so many dragons and proceeded to fill in the details. GDW (small case dgp, as they were major contributors) saw ...

Re: Mongoose and the 5th Frontier War

I like a slow-burning build up to the war - you start out doing scouting and surveillance for your old Scout contact, then you're escorting mucky-mucks away from the border because your old Naval ally needs a few extra hands, then suddenly there's an outright attack on the system you're in and you ...
