Re: Mongoose and the 5th Frontier War

maybe this is better here... So a History of the Fifth Frontier War, written as just that, a blow by blow history with some stats and adventure seeds, but keep the core game at 1105 so this is there if you want to move into the VFW. Sort of like the CT Spinward Marches Campaign for CT but with playe...

Re: Book X and Supplement X - Comments Wanted!

Illustrated Who's Who of the Third Imperium - essentially a NPC book of the movers and shakers of the Third Imperium Anomalies and Artifacts that is where it changes my original posting. A Milieu book (naturally I would want input into any Traveller Now/Modern Traveller) perhaps ...

Re: Book X and Supplement X - Comments Wanted!

A Grand Explorations book firmly rooted in the OTU, as I suggested in the article on Jumpgates...which could be a World Builders Guide combined with exploration rules in the galaxy beyond Chartered Space. The Scientist career path could be incorporated into that. What I would like to see: 1) Lords o...

Re: 2300AD art page

The guiding principle for the artists I would say think of what we ought to have now but it is just on the edge - this would be commonplace and add to that a raw aesthetic as colonies would need to have things that they could easily manufacture themselves hence more mechanical rather than electronic...

Re: 2300AD art page

yes, I would agree that powered armour is clunky in 2300AD but also I would say that 2300AD returns the ordinary solider as being the centre - albeit with lots of technology. For every illustration of the Kafer human conflict - it is shown Man-to-Man (Kafer) and small squads would rule. The only way...

Re: Oh to be a fly on the wall,,,

The essence of the Ancient jump gate would be a sustainable artificial wormhole network - so perhaps we are no longer talking about Jump Gates but Stargates. Now, IMTU each of Grandfather's children commanded an area that approximates a Sector so buried in each Quadrant (collection of four Sectors) ...

Re: Jump Gates - Your Thoughts

see fly on the wall for my own use of jump gates...essentially you all are thinking too small. Imagine if the Ancients (here it is not only the Droyne) could utilize the natural gravatic forces of the galaxy to create almost imperceivable small devices which rip open expressways/autobahns of Jumpspa...

Re: Oh to be a fly on the wall,,,

You see that is the beauty of a Grand Explorations book...you could keep all the OTU trimmings and set it somewhere completely different. If the Ancients are the ones who carved up Jump Space into navigability corridors - Jump 1-6. Later they build expressways to allow them to move entire planets th...

Re: 2300AD Update

That is a far better cover. Better, imho. This is what GDW could do if they had the latest toys...but this cover is way better. Reminds me a bit of what Gypsy Knight Games is doing - who have excellent covers, as well. If the interiors match the cover - which looking at Dynasty - I think, like Terr...
