3 things

Postby JMISBEST » Sun Aug 06, 2017 7:32 pm

Can you help me with 3 things

1st is a area that I have always struggled with in 2nd but not 1st edition Mongoose Traveller, which was and still is ship designing. Can you design me A 700 ton very heavy Raider variation of The Drinax Harrier. Which should only be very heavily armed and armoured compared with other ships massing 700 tons/its size, not in general

2nd is that 1 of a friend of mines Pc rolled The Floating Palace Life Event that shows he is Oleb's Bastard Son and as he is older that Rao/the named heir the male Pc, as played by his female player, thinks he should be the next king and he and his GM want ideas for running attack on Rao that, if successful, will see her dead and Harrick executed or disowned and exiled for doing it to get the throne, leaving my female friends male character as the next king

3rd is for ideas for Traveller Versions of Redwalls Mice, Mole, Squirrel and Badger Races, refugees for, of and from Drinax will meet, they will be escaped Slaves of Cloony The Scurge and, if freed and recruited as soldiers, could be used as vast numbers of decent soldiers or large number of small technologically weak ships or both. Or could be bought off of Cloony, just to get him off Drinax's back, then freed and have their agricultural skills put to use to produce the materials to mostly please Tech-Worlds and their ships to guard and fully please Tech-World

A beefed up version of the Harrier was not too difficult to do, the main issue was choosing which over-the-top goodies to use to fill the extra space. My version may be a bit more heavily armed than you intended, it is a good commerce raider but could double as a small warship as well.
