Default So some concerns

Just started messing around with this but a couple things seem problematic

SHIPS
-How does anyone afford one?
-They're twice as expensive as regular Traveller
-Ship Shares are extremely limited...

(I did a human last night with 21 terms and he ended up with 5 shares. 2 terms Vagabond and the rest were explorer or free trader)

UPLIFTS
With the changes to skill gain (start at 0) are Uplifts viable with only 3-5 terms?

MUSTER ROLL OF 7
-How do you get +1 on a Benefit roll? Diplomats, Free Traders and Explorers have no career/life event option to get a +1 on a Benefit roll so where would it come from?

(Note that this restricts ship shares to 1 per roll...)

In Clement Sector, unless you are a large corporation or government, ships are hard to come by (legally). They are very expensive. As someone attempting to purchase a ship, you are faced with a massive uphill climb which will require a lot of taking "odd jobs".

I think so. Generally speaking, you are getting bonuses for being an uplift in lieu of getting a lot of skills.

That is an unnoticed error on my part. Dammit.

Result #66 in the Diplomatic Service and Explorer events should also feature a +1 on your Benefit roll.

Result #62 in the Free Trader career should also feature a +1 to your Benefit roll.

Might want to check them all... ;-)

Also, what is added to Aging rolls besides 2d6 and the modifier listed on the table?

Nothing.

If you're referencing the fact that rolling 2 and subtracting 1 still gives you a 1 (no effect), that's intentional. As it stands currently, there are no other modifiers listed in any of the books but that will not always be the case.

A very different feel to the Spinward Marches or Solomani Rim, which is nice as this becomes one of the elements that makes it definitely feel like you're not in (the Third Imperium world of ) Kansas anymore Toto.
