Traveller 'Stat Yourself' page

Postby zero » Sat Aug 16, 2014 11:44 pm

As the thread title says, I'm looking for this old page that you could use to answer questions about yourself and find out what stats along Str,Dex,Sta,Int,Edu and Soc you would place yourself to effectively make a Trav character based off your own abilities.

It had basic strength and dexterity tests to try at home and how well you fared went towards what stat you'd have in the end game. It was cool, but alas I never favourited the site and I cannot seem to find it... I was wondering if anyone here knew what page I was on about?

And hey, to keep interest in this thread and hopefully attract someone that might know the page I'm on about, where would you place yourself?

I hope not. That one is REALLY not well thought out. EDU 7 = college degree? That would mean that the average 18 yr old Trav character has a 4 year degree. The Str test is an endurance test, etc., etc.

That was like the last page in the T5 playtest rules.

He is generally acknowledged as one of the Key Failure points of T4.

Didn't know that. I have never really following the "inside baseball" of the Trav designers. Thanks for the info. T4 was NOT a success I do know.
