Element Cruisers Shipping

Postby Tay » Thu Feb 07, 2019 12:41 pm

Hi All

Any ideas when the Pre-orders will start to ship. I see people are already receiving what i assume are Kickstarter orders.

Cheers

This is killing me, man! How long does it take to get 'em out to California! :shock:

Can't wait to see them blueprints.

I've seen the naval campaign adventure, but not the deckplans.

The adventure is pretty good, though does require a lot of referee preparation. It's not like a pathfinder module that you can run out of the box. It was written by someone who understands how present-day western military operate in peacetime and this might actually cause a lot of problems for your typical "murder hobo" PCs.

That’s true of traveller in general. A occasional bug hunt is useful to keep that itch scratched, but your typical D&D game session doesn’t fit well in traveller.

I have the PDFs but I sort of denied myself much access to them. I really want to see them in physical form first. Lay them out on the table, etc.

I would really like to run one of these naval campaigns. It's a big challenge but I think it could be a lot of fun. An opportunity to have Traveller meet Star Trek a bit. Practice makes perfect I'm sure.

Shoot man, I’ll play. Guess that means I shouldn’t read shakedown cruise.

Well, in my case an earlier version (though doubt much changed).

Actually, I think it could be fun, interesting - and horrifying - to see how far the rogue crew of INS MurderHobo can get before they get hunted down by an entire sector fleet! Just imagine the chaos they can cause before getting stopped by applying a shoot first, don't ask afterwards policy while in possession of a capital warship…. :)

I did the opposite - I've spent so much time drooling over the digital plans I almost know them by heart by now!

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to play a naval campaign some day... And also the discussions that could be had here, about the campaigns, story/mission ideas, cruiser configurations, favourite pods and so on... :)

Maybe this post is Off-Topic (Why nobody here writes in the Off Topic Forum?), but Humble Bundle is offering a cheap bundle of Star Trek comics right now, the theory is important before practice :wink: .

Lets keep it that way. We argue enough without discussing polotics or other science fiction universes. :D
