In Moot Member Blogs Criminal Activity Okay Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #123 New April 4th, 2019 11:48 AM
There are quite a few comments on the forum which assume that criminal activity on the part of players with their characters is perfectly okay. This has also been sanctioned in some of the Traveller materials. Personally, I find this both offensive and disturbing.

How many of the players would instantly offer a bribe to a police officer it stopped for speeding, or being drunk while driving, with the automatic assumption that the police officer would instantly accept the bribe? How many ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Sector and S1889 Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #122 New April 2nd, 2019 03:53 AM
I hopefully will get some time this week to work on my sector and also the S1889 campaign. Life does get in the way sometimes.

One thing about the forum is that it does simulate the mind to think about things that have not surfaced yet. The question about starports outside of the Imperium got me to thinking about the starports in the new sector. They will be different from the standard types, but just how much different I am still working on. I am thinking that both A and B can build sta ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Nice Game Day Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #121 New March 31st, 2019 03:57 AM
I had a good time with my daughter, her husband, and her father-in-law playing games today. To start off, I got a text message from my daughter not to buy any donuts, which I had not planned to do as none of us really need them. When they arrived, aside from about 10 possible games to play, they had a great big box of very good donuts and pastries. We sort of pigged out on them instead of the healthy snacks that my wife has prepared, although I did have some of the apples that she sliced up a ...More Read More

  #120 New March 30th, 2019 02:32 AM
It was an interesting day at the church. Four teens showed up, all of whom I know and have been mentoring. We ended up playing Russian Rails, the rail-building game for the USSR/Russia. The USSR disintegrates during the game, which makes things a bit more complicated. We also could have used another packet of money, but that is a minor point. There are some wrinkles in that game that are not in any of the other games, which make it a bit more challenging. I am not sure if five players are ...More Read More

  #119 New March 29th, 2019 03:16 AM
It looks like my last blog post scared everyone off. I was not sure what would happen, but as I said, this blog does not necessarily apply to Traveller or any other game for that matter. If a mention of Johnathan Edwards sermon or a Bible Study scares you off, you might want to take stock of yourself.

I did run around a lot today to try and get ready for a game day at my church, at their request. It is Spring Break here, and the thought was that some of the older teens might want to play ...More Read More

I never promised that this blog would be totally about Traveller or Space-1889, or politically correct, but more about my daily thoughts, as the title says. If you have been reading either my posts in the forum, or Moot, or here, you might have figured out that I am a fairly conservative Christian, with more than a bit of seminary background. Now, if that sort of background would tend to offend you, you can either stop reading at this point, or read on and either be offended or possibly educa ...More Read More

My wife and I went to Red Lobster on Sunday to have a nice dinner as a bit of a break from tax season. As we were getting ready to leave, we were bundling up our leftovers to take home to eat later. I happened to look over at the booth next to ours, and someone had left about a half plate of shrimp and French Fries behind when they left. Then I made a run to the rest room, and as I walked back I saw another booth where the people had left behind several plates of food that they had not eaten ...More Read More

Well, the sun is shining through the front window, and there is a big area of sunshine on the carpet. Normally, in past years, there would be two to three cats squabbling over who gets what spot, and it would be fun to watch them sorting out their pecking order. Generally, the male cats lost out, but sometimes the females were a bit slow, and the males got a good spot. Now, there are no cats arguing over what spots there are, and it is driving me nuts. We have had at least one cat since Nov ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Wet Navy Designs Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #115 New March 21st, 2019 11:27 AM
I have been going through the D. K. Brown books on British warship design from roughly 1800 through World War 1, along with William White's manuals on naval architecture (from 1877 to about 1900), and Hovgaard's history of warships from 1860 to 1920. Included in all of them are rules of thumb estimates on various aspects of naval architecture. Among them are things like square feet per horsepower for steam engine plants, sail area per displacement ton, space per man, the shape of the ship, et ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Electoral College Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #114 New March 20th, 2019 11:34 AM
I keep seeing proposals by the various Democratic candidates and members of Congress on getting rid of the Electoral College. Being an historian, I can understand that without the Electoral College, we would still be a collection of independent states with a loose confederation sort of holding us together. What is troubling is the fact that the various individuals making the proposals seem to have no idea as to what it would take to amend the Constitution to get rid of it. I keep wondering a ...More Read More
