Project Steel

Postby Host of Angels » Wed Jul 29, 2009 1:14 pm

Just picked this up and jolly good it is too. I have a couple of questions / requests:

First is there any chance to get larger / colour versions of the various maps for download? Some are either too small to see the detail or very difficult to interpret in black and white - the detailed area map case in point as the small hexes are virtually impossible to see.

Secondly, a question to those that have actually played it through. How did the travellers cope with the second part of the trilogy? The events in this part will run on with or without the characters and I wondered how other GMs managed this - especially with players who shy away from combat.

Cheers and well done for a great product.

We'll look into this for you!

Ha! In the office game, Part One ended with a jail break going very wrong (they got arrested for walking through Camp Bravo with VERY heavy weaponry - they thought someone was gunning for them). A lot of prospectors died, and the players ran for the hills, literally, hiding amongst the Sword Worlders for a while.

So, they actually missed the raiders attacks!

They got back on piste with Part Three though.

Oh when will players learn....

My group are very much not gun-bunnies, so I am struggling slightly with the middle section. I need to give it an investigative twist somehow. I need to sit down and have a little think on this one.

Thanks for looking into it though

You know, the thing I like about a good module is that it plays differently each time you play it through.

This module is one of those, different groups will figure out different ways to play though it - making it fun again and again.

Bump. Still in need of better versions of the maps. Tried copying the maps for player handouts, and they are even more difficult to read. May have something to do with my technology. Any chance of a download.... :D

along these lines, i've been looking for a pdf version. i've checked the usual suspects (rpgnow, drivethru, and mongoose sites) with no luck :x any chance of it being released as a pdf? that would cure the maps problem as well. FWIW, i buy everything i really like twice, dead tree and pdf and project steel would definantly be worth the additional monies. but then, i've always liked what mjd has written for traveller :wink:

Maybe they have been discontinued owing to the new version?
Try searching for the individual adventure names.

When QLI screwed MJD, the dual statted versions were pulled. He then replaced them with CT versions published through Avenger. However, once Avenger's license with FFE expired, those were pulled, too.

Therefore, the only versions of those adventures currently available are Project Steel. I do not ever see the prior versions being re-released.

Thanks Daryen. Well I bought the book and its really good - to get back on topic - it would be good to have downloadable versions of the maps to print.

By the way Daryen , I submitted a patron to Berka's site featuring a certain Mr. Handi


:D
