In Moot Member Blogs CE Vehicle Design Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #137 New May 12th, 2019 06:34 AM
Well, I will have to see how much hot water I get into for giving a not exactly favorable review for the new Cepheus Engine Vehicle Design Guide. That was based on looking it over somewhat quickly, looking at stuff that I know a fair amount about. It would be nice if people doing these would spend a bit more time in research before putting them out. Then making one design guide to fit every vehicle is something that for which I really have a low opinion. If you want to make design guides, m ...More Read More

Well, now that I have determined that speculative trading might be a bit more lucrative than I thought, once I plugged in stowage factors, I have to deal with the fallout. However, it might not be as bad as I initially thought. First, my ship's crew is going to be considerably larger, being based on having 3 watches for a 24 hour day. That means that the crew will be at least 3 times the size, and a bit more than 3 times more expensive. That is based on having at least 4 for the engine room ...More Read More

  #135 New May 4th, 2019 12:12 PM
I keep debating weighing in on the thread regarding the 100,000 ton beastie on the Mongoose Traveller forum. They are just looking for how would this creature haul a crashed or immobile space ship to a space port. I am not sure that they have bothered to think this through at all. We have some examples of how big structures are that mass about 100,000 tons. They are called large cruise ships, aircraft carriers, and bulk cargo carriers. All of them range about 1000 feet plus long, over 100 f ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Funeral Today Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #134 New May 3rd, 2019 09:54 PM
This morning, my wife and I attended the funeral of the mother of one of our friends at church. These are becoming more frequent as we are not young anymore, and that means that any surviving parents are well past 70. Our parents have all long since passed away, beginning with my Dad in 1993. I still keep thinking that one day I will pick up the phone and hear: "Hi Dale, this is Pop" on the other end.

The mother knew that the end was coming, and did a fair amount of advance planning. On ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Trade Goods vs. Trade Goods Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #133 New May 2nd, 2019 07:25 AM
Basically, I am looking at three different lists of trade goods for Traveller. One is the one used in Classic, from the 1977 LBBs to The Traveller Book. The second is the one in the Cepheus Engine rules. The third is the one in Traveller 5.0.9. Marc has some good ideas in the T5 trade goods list, but it goes overboard with all of the possibilities, which makes it unwieldy to use, while the Cepheus Engine focuses too much on manufactured goods of various types to the detriment of consumable ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs More Christians Killed Entry Tools Rating: 1 Stars!
  #132 New May 1st, 2019 04:01 AM
How many of the forum has heard about the attack on Christians in Burkina Faso today? Killed by Muslims in case you care about such things. A group of armed Muslims attacked an Assembly of God church, and killed the pastor and 5 other persons, amoung them his son and brother-in-law. They were given the choice of converting to Islam on the spot or dying. They died. It looks like Fox News mentioned it, but none of the other major networks. Add in the Easter bombing attacks in Sri Lanka, and ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Russian Rails and Trade Goods 2 Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #131 New April 30th, 2019 06:23 AM
I finally won at Russian Rails tonight, even though I started in the East, near the Urals, and never delivered any cargos to Leningrad or Moscow. For once, I had reasonable cards, which likely means that the card deck is geting more thoroughly mixed up. I did extremely well hauling sugar beets and tea, along with cattle from the East to the West. The cotton loads helped a couple of times too.

With respect to Traveller trade goods, I keep getting more ideas the more I play the railroad gam ...More Read More

One thing that I have found out about the Forum since I started this blog. If the subject is on something to do with Traveller, there is a fair amount of interest. If it is on something that I am working on with respect to my version of the Cepheus Engine rules, or the sector that I am working on, there is a fair amount of interest. If it on something that is bugging me, especially if it has to do with anything religious, there is basically no interest.

As this is a Traveller blog, that s ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Easter Bombings 2 and Trade Goods Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #129 New April 25th, 2019 03:17 AM
Well, the death toll keeps going up, and so does the appearance of a catastrophic failure in the Sri Lanka intelligence organizations. They apparently had detailed information about the possibility of such attacks several weeks in advance and did nothing with the information. This means either that there are major problems within the intel apparatus that desparately need to be dealt with, or the possibility of deliberate ignoring of the attacks, as the primary targets would be Christians, a m ...More Read More

  #128 New April 22nd, 2019 06:52 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
