I've played the previous versions of Traveller and love the setting. I just bought the T20 game book and I'm trying to learn the d20 system. The question I have is...How do you determine Lifeblood, and what goes in the "Stamina Dice" box on the char. sheet?

Thanx,
Huan

Lifeblood is race determined. Humans (and most human sized aliens) have a lifeblood equal to their "Con" attribute. The full description is on p150.

Stamina is derived from level. For each level in a class you gain a certain number of stamina points. At very low level your stamina may be below your lifeblood. For example in the rogue class description (p57) under "Game Rule Information" a rogue is listed as having d8+Con mod per level. Each time you gain a level you gather more stamina.

To put these together, a solmani with 12 Con who is a level 3 rogue would have 12 Lifeblood and Stamina of 3d8+3 (arround 16). If this character then gained a level of academic (d4+Con/level) their Lifeblood would remain at 12, and their stamina would go up by (d4+1).

Ok, I got it. And the stamina dice would be whatever they get in their profession, right?

Yep. It basically matches martial progression, the more combative classes (Barbarian, Merc, Marine) get a larger dice then the non-martial classes (Merchant, Professional, Academic)

And the toughness feat can be used to increase lifeblood by one, and stamina by three, each time it is taken.

Greetings and salutations,

How does one handle rank when a character goes from the Imperial Army, Marines, or Navy to becoming a Mercenary? Does the character go into the mercenaries at their formal rank or a rank lower? Or do they start at the bottom of the pile like they did in the Imperial service?

When a PC starts in a new military organization, it's at the bottom.

I suppose the following might be possible (might be):

If I Player wanted to use up a starting feat on "Patron", I'd allow them to get a bonus on promotions, survival, and benefits. How much? I'd have to go over the CharGen rules again.


Perhaps there could also be a Feat that allows for the retention of some rank between organization transfers?

That will be a big help that I have for a character.

Thank you Marquis RainOfSteel
