Default T5 Gazelle-class Close Escorts

T5 Gazelle-class Close Escorts

Now available on DTRPG (http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/...-Close-Escorts):

We have recreated and expanded on the iconic Gazelle-class Close Escort from Classic Traveller. Our objective is to allow a new generation of players and referees to enjoy this ship in the latest and greatest version of this great game system and setting. This product provides details on the construction and operation of the Gazelle-class Close Escort, the Fiery-class Close Escort, and a civilian variant of the Gazelle including deckplans, fillforms, and combat cards for all three designs. These ships are fully-realized adventure settings using the full depth available in the T5 rules.

Congratulations on publishing! I've purchased and perusing it now - first impression is that this is utterly comprehensive and includes a couple of neat innovations - the combined range diagram, for example, is a striking representation of ship capability.

The doc is clearly a labor of love. Mike, you did a great job, and it's well worth the purchase price. It feels like I'm buying an LBB that Traveller has needed for decades.

This may sound a little silly, but I really like the colorized charts. The functional crew diagram is attractive and could be useful as an in-game aid.

The "Baseline Control Map" is worthy of DGP's technical diagrams... with the benefit that each component is also part of the ship design. Again, a useful in-game aid.

The supercool Combined Range Diagram was already mentioned.

And then the accessible section on crewing alternatives. At a glance I can know who I need to bring aboard, based on what I want a Gazelle to do.


Mike, this is a nascent Naval Ops Field Manual-type thing.

Ojno & Robject, thanks both of you - not for the comments but for the support in getting it done.

And for the comments too.

Update!

Ian Stead provided a phenomenal new cover for the Gazelle Book - see my avatar for a thumbnail preview. The cover was done after I submitted the draft so Ian is not named in the credits. That's why I want to ensure he gets proper credit here at least.

If you have already purchased a copy, go back and download the updated version (it's free).

If you haven't made the purchase yet, go check out the reviews on DTRPG: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/242277/T5-GazelleClass-Close-Escorts or the discussion in this thread (in the T5 forum): http://www.travellerrpg.com/CotI/Dis...ad.php?t=39073.

OK, I finally got chance to look at this, and it is PHENOMENAL. Please do more ship classes (especially the Dragon Class SDB).

Seconded. I read this last night and I love this product. The naval hierarchy detail, the ship mission detail, the systems detail, it's all so perfect. MORE!

You mentioned that it was in your plans somewhere in one of the threads.
