Yes, there is...

The official forum for discussing Liftoff is at not working at the moment. Let me go tell Rouven. Don't post it here, we want it all in one place. So hang on...

Reading the German language forums over on the 13mann boards is like hearing the lyrics to a Falco song! "Rock me, Amadeus!"

Well you shouldnt make fun of people that are more literate than yourself. I was just thinking about this when watching Eurovision - that here in the UK we are lucky if most people can even speak English properly never mind talk and sing fluently in two or more languages. I am sure most of the people on the 13Mann boards can speak relatively well in both German and English.

So... Actually, I wasn't making fun of anyone. I just hear German spoken so infrequently here that reading it brings back memories of hearing Falco rap his way through a song about Mozart.

And yes, most of them can probably speak English far, far better than I can speak German.

I could give you horror stories of humans (and let me point out that I deliberately avoided the use of the term "people") who come in to the retail site where I work and have problems with the English language - some of them don't speak it and have a cultural bias against learning it, and some of them are natives and they still have a cultural bias against proper usage!

The website works fine. I posted on it today.

Liftoff

http://forum.13mann.de/wbb/index.php...ard&boardID=67

The set is aimed at younger players. The UPP generation should be adopted by all MgT players immediately. Homeworld generation and pre-career skills too, though you'd need to reduce them to zero's to be consistent with MgT pre-career skills.

The Chargen is good but it eliminates terms, aging, all Contact/Rival types and the ultra cool Events that makes MgT Chargen so uniquely great. It reminds me slightly of GURPS TRAVELLER Chargen. Some minor changes could fix it. Also no Army or Navy careers are planned. Despite this it gives skills out in copious amounts with virtually no randomness. Three Scouts from Exploration branch would have identical skills excepting the pre and post career skills both of which are more random.
