In Moot Member Blogs Easter Bombing Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #128 New April 22nd, 2019 05:52 PM
It is amazing how fast information on the Easter Bombing has vanished from the Main Stream Media. The Muslim mosque shooting is sit popping up here and there, but the bombings, apparently carried out my Muslims, and leaving almost 6 times as many dead, have essentially vanished. I assume that the Muslims did carry out the attacks as suicide bombers were involved, and the Muslim religion is the only one to promise Paradise if you die killing infidels. Infidels, for those who do not know the w ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Good Friday Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #127 New April 20th, 2019 03:51 AM
This was one of my bad days, as my left leg was hurting from the time I got up and got my wife off to H&R Block. No, tax season does not end April 15th, as then all of the IRS rejects for electronic filing show up, along with IRS letters and audits that cannot be dealt with prior to the 15th.

However, the community Good Friday service was at my church this year, which meant that parking was not going to be an issue, as in other years. This was especially important as if I managed to go, it ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Notre Dame Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #126 New April 17th, 2019 05:31 PM
It appears that either the powers that be did not like the Notre Dame post in Random Static, or some cretin on the forum complained and they followed the do not offend anyone who complains about anything having to do with religion being posted. In some respects, this does confirm my view that the forum is basically anti-religious, along with having a strong tendency to view criminal behavior on the part of player characters as acceptable in the game.

As a response to at least the criminal b ...More Read More

At what point in a thread is it acceptable to say that something is simply "not Traveller" even if the thread is the My Own Traveller Universe. The following has been posted there.

Traders and such always work for someone: probably a corporation who is chartered by a noble. It's difficult to be unaffiliated in the Main Sequence setting, if you want to have any kind of power at all. Or if you want to have a starship (which is a special kind of power). Note that control of starships is manage

In Moot Member Blogs Russian Rails and Planet Trade Goods Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #124 New April 10th, 2019 01:39 AM
We played Russian Rails at church on Monday night, but put in one of the optional rules of having the slower trains run at 12 mileposts per move, and the fast trains run at 16 mileposts per move. That definitely helped the game work better. However, the first game I started out in the middle of the board, which meant that the cities were a bit far apart, so that making contracts took both more time in the sense of moves, and more cost for the longer track runs. It did not work out very well. ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Criminal Activity Okay Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #123 New April 4th, 2019 10:48 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 02:53 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 02:57 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

In Moot Member Blogs Very Early Saturday Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #120 New March 30th, 2019 01:32 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

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
