Commander Truestar Citizen
Default Anyone ever given the "Diplomat" career field the High Guard/Mercenary treatment?


I prefer using the CT/MT advanced Char. Gen. with my players to generate characters.
Today, I spoke with one of those who is considering joining my campaign and is interested in being a "People Person" type character.

The "first swing" is always GDW Book 7 Merchant Prince.
You get space skills, you get some combat skills and you get interpersonal communications skills.

But, if she doesn't want that, the next swing would be "Diplomat"
I'm checking my book collection and neither Mongoose not GDW/DGP did an expansion on the career field.

So, has anyone else done this in their own Traveller Universe?

No, not "THE" Marc...just 'A' of your more or less run-of-the mill Marc's
(this message is not a reflection on the name Marc but acts as a wide acting "Over Reaction prevention disclaimer in the event you are rushing, uncertain or have not read my post and realized I am not "THE" Marc")
- I am 'A' Marc and I approved this message

Well I don't care for the infinite cascade skill sets from LBB4+ on, but neither do I like the constraints of the LBB1/S4 sets. So I can offer you up my mutant version of Diplomat, which involves replacing Liaison with the MgT era Persuade and an additional skill table and a smidgen more skills that bridge the gap with MT+ characters.

If interested let me know, it's in a spreadsheet I posted but I can duplicate it in text here.
