Of course. A PDF will be available. That is the way of things.

That for me IS Traveller - small ships, basic weapons, realistic political and social issues to get caught up in.
That's why many feel that Star Vikings (H. Beam Piper) is so very Traveller. Three dodgy starships holding sn entire planet to ransom? Sounds like a scenario to me.

Smile Missiles rule

[QUOTE=Magnus von Thornwood;419192]I have run about three solid engagements and I have found that missiles rule and energy weapons are for Anti-Missile fire.

Changing Range Bands can bore the crap out of players. The concept of space war being long periods of getting to the fight followed by who has better stuff or can survive longest! Not a crowd favorite..


Hi Magnus,

whilst I'm awaiting my copy in the UK, I'm glad to hear about missiles, I've dropped missiles in favour of squeezing in a meson gun bay in all my mongoose ship designs

will we be able to blow up death star's with fighters?

Regards

David

[QUOTE=Shonner;419354]I've been reading Traveller 5's starship combat rules. Lots of little details, according to how your ship is designed. It has collision rules. If used as a sci-fi sourcebook, Traveller 5 is interesting reading. Nearly all of the combat stuff I've read in it, I seen before in much much older Traveller books. Starships can use different types of M-Drives in Traveller 5, using different fuel other than liquid hydrogen.



Hi,

Collision as in RAMMING ???

Regards

David

Possibly. Fighters seemed to work with my one combat I ran them in. Remember when using fighters that missiles are still the win, since they have their damage based on Size, not Launcher.
