Default Merchant Capt. Jamison, what a brilliant, shrewed rascal.

Throughout the known universe, Terrans and other intelligent beings told rumors, tales, and nursery rhymes about the Great Merchant Captain of the Expanse, Captain Jamison. For eons, thinking organisms have debated on just how the Great Merchant Captain rose to such prominence within the elite rich, upper social circles, and the most advanced scientists, while keeping his ties grounded with the…less savory elements. What is the truth? Well, the truth is so simple it has eluded discovery until an Ancient relic was found buried with a imaginable riches and technology deep within an ice covered labyrinth. The relic was Captain Jamison’s true service records. These service records prove just how cunning and ambitious young Alexander Lascelles Jamison was, and some may say he was a “cutthroat”. So, the truth. While serving his second term of service, 3rd Officer A. L. Jamison defied clear, succinct stamped and signed orders to report for specific training. Instead of making a right turn into training room 81, he snuck off to the left to training room 77. His keen intellect drove him to avoid the dreaded Steward classroom and to seek the beloved/powerful Gun Tactics. Gun Tactics would prove to be far more useful for survival and…..persuasion, than handing out silverware and napkins, or topping off drinks. So, satisfied with the resulting skill set gained years ago, 1st Officer A. L. Jamison doctored orders and returned to training room 77 during his fourth term of service.



BOOK 1 (1977 edition), BOOK 1 (1981 edition), THE TRAVELLER BOOK (1982), and STARTER TRAVELLER (1983), all say "He goes on a physical fitness Kick [Table 1, roll 3= +1 endurance] and learns to better defend himself [Table 2, roll 4= gun combat] using the small body pistol.", during his second term of service.

BOOK 1 (1977 edition), BOOK 1 (1981 edition), THE TRAVELLER BOOK (1982), and STARTER TRAVELLER (1983), all say "He trains himself in the martial arts [Table 1, roll 5= blade combat], choosing the cutlass and [Table 2, roll 4= gun combat] the submachinegun.", during his Fourth term of service.

The ACQUIRED SKILLS TABLES for THE TRAVELLER BOOK and STARTER TRAVELLER are the same as in BOOK 1 (1981 edition), except for table 2, line one, and is shown below:





Services Skills Table
_Navy Marines Army Scouts Merchant Other
1Ship's Boat ATV ATV Air/Raft Vehicle Vehicle


*Note: Errata indicates incidents of "ATV" and "Air/Raft" should be "Vehicle" in the above tables.




Captain A. L. Jamison learned his lesson about "Steward" and skipped class for more useful training, starting in 1981!


I guess the thing to do is to change the rolls from "4" to "6", for 1981 and later.

CHEERS!
