Starship Hull Numbers in the Core Rulebook

Postby First Age » Thu Feb 18, 2021 4:55 pm

I'm planning to run some Traveller online, either on the Role or Foundry VTTs.

Something I have noticed is that In between printings of the core rulebook, the Hull ratings for common starships have been removed. During playtest (all that time ago!), it was decided to include the Hull ratings in the core rulebook so starship combat could take place without the need for High Guard.

Different paint job too!

I have High Guard, so it is no loss to me, but seems strange to remove them. Are they mentioned elsewhere in the book? I searched but could only find the damage repair mention of Hull Points.

Wierd.

I agree it should be there, otherwise you can't do space combat with the Core book.

It's still in the "Traveller_Core_Rulebook_2020_-_BW.pdf" black and white pdf file.
