In Moot Member Blogs Classic Traveller Thread Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #60 New January 8th, 2019 08:51 AM
Well, I have voiced my complaints about the baby-killer from Houston taking over the Classic Traveller thread, and I have been told that what he is doing is within the rules. I was advised to complain directly to him, but I suspect that nothing would make the shriveled organ that serves him as a heard (think Grinch, but in comparison, the Grinch's heart is several orders of magnitude larger), beat faster is knowing that I am not happy with what he is doing. If enough other people complain, he ...More Read More

Well, we will see what happens since I pretty much trashed the baby-killer from Texas opinion poll. I have been reading military history since I was nine, and none of the series mentioned would compare to the best military history writing. If you want to read good military writings, go read Bruce Catton on the U.S. Civil War, or maybe find a copy of 100 Best True Stories of World War 2, or spend some time reading Guadalcanal Diary, or Shots Fired in Anger. For something really griping, read ...More Read More

  #58 New December 31st, 2018 03:49 AM
What I need to do is sit down and determine how many of the bugs in Sector Maker, and there are actually not that many, actually have to do with the way the Traveller 5 rules generate a system. The importance of a system is clearly derived from T5, and does not take the surrounding planets or sub-sector into account. Some of the other material which could be useful is not possible to plug in your own setting, and that looks to be the requirement under the T5 rules for a random die roll. The ...More Read More

I watched Ray Stevens do "Would Jesus Wear a Rolex" and "Mr. Businessman" a little earlier this evening. The songs hit something that I have been thinking about for the past couple of weeks.

I handle the Thanksgiving and Christmas food distribution for my church. We give out meals put together by one of the local grocery stores for those who are in need, doing this through an assistance center that the church supports. This past Thanksgiving we handed out more meals than we have handed out ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs How to Feed an Army Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #56 New December 27th, 2018 10:41 PM
I received a book that I ordered last week. The title is How to Feed an Army, published by the Subsistence Department of the War Department in 1901. It is a collection of reports made immediately following the end of the Civil War to the Commissary General of Subsistence on the experience of supplying subsistence to the Union Army during the Civil War. There is a wide range of reports, ranging from a regimental commissary officer to the head commissary officer for an army corps and major sub ...More Read More

Note to oneself, do not bother to read or comment on Supplement Four threads. It just encourages the spamming and trolling. I am not sure how much encouragement that he needs.

After viewing McPerth orange or yellow on gray posting, always remember to think about the forum members trying to read a post. I am not sure that many have eyes as old and tired as mine, but some might have other eye problems and some are probably color-blind. So easy on the red-green and blue-yellow posts, if used ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Ship Construction Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #54 New December 24th, 2018 03:30 AM
I expected a lot of blowback on my comments on armor in my version of the Cepheus Engine rules for my new sector. Basically, I thought that making armor a lot more expensive, and chucking Crystal Iron completely, would get some people upset. After all, I essentially made armoring a merchant ship a fast way to bankruptcy for the players. They might be able to manage a titanium plated ship, as long as they were carrying to planets with corrosive atmosphere or odd atmospheric taints. For that, ...More Read More

  #53 New December 8th, 2018 11:35 AM
Well, the sector is almost done, I have 4 more sub-sectors to finish up locating planets, and then I will start writing up some more detailed planet descriptions. I do need to decide if there will be more Amber and Red Zones in the sector. The Rim Scouts do the listing, as there is no Traveller's Aid Society around. There are Rim Scout bases, larger or smaller in most of the sub-sectors, and some of the planet populations might be glad to help a ship in distress. How much they will expect i ...More Read More

Well, I just talked with an old friend of mine, Harold Johnson, formerly of TSR, by several incarnations ago. As he has been at GaryCon from GaryCon Zero, I figured that he would have some idea as to what would work there and what would not. It looks like my idea for a Traveller scenario and a Dungeon and Dragons scenario will work. Now, to get things written up and characters determined. His recommendation was pre-generated characters to save time in the game for gaming, and not rolling up ...More Read More

Well, I had lunch with a friend from church, and we spent a lot of time discussing naval history, as he is a history major and former naval officer. Nice time there, but too much food. I am glad that I only ordered the half-order of biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs on top. I would hate to think what a full order would look like.

Then spent the day helping in the church office, covering the phones for the church secretary who was heading downtown to the Kris Kringle Market with her d ...More Read More
