Looking over what I me previous post, I realized that I had forgotten some things. First, given the Ancients apparent tendency to scatter humans all over the place in what is the Imperium and elsewhere, they might have just as readily scattered Terran flora and fauna all over as well. That would mean you could have Terran animals inhabiting planets in the Imperium along with Terran plants to support said animals. That could include aquatic creatures and ecosystems as well. given the wide ran ...More Read More

I think that what I am going to focus on in the next couple of weeks is getting a bestiary put together and out on DriveThru for CE/Traveller. I have more than enough animal artwork, both color and black and white, to do several, along with sea creatures and birds, plus some prehistoric animals. I figure the prehistoric one can show up in the Piper-Norton Sector, brought by the Krell, Droyne, the Baldies, and who knows else, as there are a fair amount of ruins in the sector. Then there will ...More Read More

Given the resurrected discussion regarding Traveller 4 brings up an interesting idea. I had thought about putting the time frame of my sector at around 1100 for the 3rd Imperium. However, putting it back roughly a thousand years or so would put it about contemporaneous with T4, or in that vicinity. The Long Night and break-up of the Rule of Man would not have that much effect to the Rimward of Terra, given the distances involved. That would also make the mixture of Piper's nuclear-electric ...More Read More

  #150 New June 5th, 2019 01:48 AM
Again, I am odd man out with supporting Trump. Like Facebook, it is better not to know someone's politics if you are going to be sharing a forum with them. I probably have given some people more reason to dislike me, but such is life. As I see if, if I go through life worrying about who I might offend, I will never say anything. It is best to know one's enemies anyway.

As for that idiot Khan, did it ever occur to him and his backers that some people simply like to hurt other people? I d ...More Read More

  #149 New June 3rd, 2019 03:28 AM
Well, I have another person ticked off with my comments on the vehicle design book, so it looks like any more comments on that in the forum are not going to be welcome. Given my background, I am not going to change my views. I will just chug along and see what happens when I start getting stuff out. I do not think that they can block me from putting out my own version of the Cepheus Engine rules, but one never knows. Considering how much I am going to be changing them, I am not sure if they ...More Read More

It looks like no one likes the post on doing some research, which does not exactly thrill me, but then, I like to do research. I figure the more research you do for a product, the better the product will likely be. Then there is the converse.

I have been going through Edward Attwood's The Modern Warship, from 1913, which is a very useful book, as many of the design parameters do not change. According to D. K. Brown, Attwood was head of the battleship design division in World War One, and ...More Read More

  #147 New May 30th, 2019 08:18 PM
It would be nice if some of the people putting out vehicle design guides would actually do some research on what they are looking to design. As some of them are in the UK, it should not be that hard to track down some copies of books on British warship construction or copies of early Brassey's Naval Annual. The wartime costs of U.S. aircraft for the Army Air Force is in both the Official U.S. Army history and the USAAF history by Craven and Cate. Going through some of the U.S. Army Official ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Vehicles for the Out Rim Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #146 New May 28th, 2019 05:35 AM
Well, given that the Cepheus Engine group has come out with a vehicle design book, I probably need to get to work on a vehicle book for the Out Rim. I do need one, along with some standard ship designs, so I might as well start working on one. As the sector is not excessively high tech, and has a lot of lower tech worlds, focusing on historical vehicles up to roughly Tech Level 8 should be the way to go. I will have to figure out art work for higher tech level vehicles, or just go with a fai ...More Read More

  #145 New May 25th, 2019 11:59 PM
I am trying to figure out how much longer to engage in the battleship discussion for a Tech Level 5 ship. I am getting the feeling that I am getting pretty much ignored, and I am not sure I want to invest a whole lot of time commenting on someone who has already made up his mind as to his correctness, or at least the viability of the rules that he is pushing. I do get the idea that what he is hoping to do is get me to design an accurate ship as comparison to his, and I have no real desire to ...More Read More

One of the guys from the Cepheus Engine group is snooping around here. Now I have to decide if I simply quit posting anything having to do with my ideas. I clearly need to avoid making any more comments about the rules or derivatives, as I already have at least one moderator on my case. My experience with moderators is that they would all love to ban me on any possible excuse, a couple in particular. My gut feeling is that I say much more, and I will be off the air for a few weeks as a minim ...More Read More
