Well, with the latest it seems the Zhondani have been hit by retard rays.

No matter how many high tech steroids and wafers Hexboy shoots up the Zhos should have been able to turn him into a smear on the wall. Little things like pyrokenesis, telekenisis, teleport or even basic guns - especially since the alarm would have gone off psionically the second 'Agent Bev' was injured. And as for the Gatherer zipping off to save him, I guess the defense systems and port control were 'down for maintenance' while a group of suspiciously shielded vargr ran around.

My apologies for this, but there is a point where suspension of belief becomes 'WTF'.

And which "the latest" would that be?

Arrow Disbelief

Your apologies are accepted, L.

Port defenses usually open up when some ship attacks them.

Flying against chasm traffic is dangerous enough for story.

Why have the port guns fire into traffic when no one else is shooting?

Next, there is the part that Dead-Hex was fighting in a room of "slow-moving, Human mannequins".

They're all too slow, though it met story to let them land blows anyway since the Astrogator has only Fighter-0, and a Strength of beyond F, (base 9 + 5 Rage + 1D of Strength/Endurance spread evenly).

Add in claws, teeth, the fact that he's armored in TL-8 materials made on a TL-15 world, and it levels the playing field.

Pyro, cryo, electro, telekinesis? This is the Tavrchedl', not the military. Even though many tested and trained in psionics can spread out their points to allow for every kind of power, it makes them a master-of-none. This is Traveller5, not Mongoose.

If you're still suffering Disbelief, then I'll just have to accept your apologies.

I uploaded the embrace between Anghal and Ardell per suggestion.
I like it. I'm impressed at how much human-understandable expression you are able to show in dog faces.

I'll see what I can do.

I think I can envision Anghal with her laz-pistol painting the Frozen Watch barracks over Dead-Hex' shoulder. In Traveller5, Forward Observer Skill has returned as opposed to its absence from Mongoose.

Question Map Illustrations

Would it aid the reader if subsector maps were cut-pasted into the thread, or can the reader look confidently on TravellerMap themselves? For me, I am developing the Sector and so am quite familiar with the worlds in the story and only look at the TravellerMap UWP for story purposes. But the reader has to look at the (Sector Hex) to understand the setting. Would snipping a small section of the concerned worlds aid the reader?

yes. the story flows better if it's right there rather than making the reader go fish for it.
