Hi,

This might be a silly question but...reading the MT Referee's Guide the other day, in the section on Cargo and Freight, it gives the table to roll on for how many & size of lots etc, and mentions that they can be either freight (Cr 1000/ton carry fee), or speculative cargo. However I can't see anywhere where it says how to determine how many of the lots are freight and how many are cargo.

Do you roll twice on the table each time for major, minor and incidental, once for cargo and once for freight, or do you roll once for each type and split it up somehow, or just decide by GM fiat? I can make it up, but it would be nice to know if there is an actual suggested method.

Mark

Hi Mark !

Guess the way to do it is to do one rolling sequence for cargo and one for freight.
The texts in the rulebook is a bit scrambled here, so there should be a note in the errata.

Yup, I have Don's most excellent errata, and there is a change for that section, but it doesn't resolve this question.

One set of rolls for each might be the way to go I suppose, or roll 1d6 per lot and say 1-3 = freight, 4-6 = cargo. Just thought it would be nice if there was a recommended way...

cheers,

Mark
