Are we able to look at one anotherís characters to see each otherís strengths and weaknesses when planning?  Is Bens character still proficient in mechanics and electronics?

Oh, I see. It really is a pretty good size. My bad.

Something like this?

In reply to Zygmunt Granat (msg # 60):

That would be perfect. I'd assume a "yacht" would mean some of the functionality would be removed for luxuries.  Bigger state rooms or something like that.

Yeah, I found a 200 ton yacht and edited the previous post...

Yeah, like I figured, a lot less cargo space. Still, if you're going to steal a ship, there's nothing wrong with traveling in style.

And we almost have a full crew.  Miranda can pilot, I can man at least one gun and Rolando in engineering. Zyg, from what I understand, you are our assault team and computer guy.

That is all Zyg has. His computer skill might not translate well to ship skills though unless the interface is highly computerized/automated... like what would probably be on a yacht!

Explosiveghast, that's a great example! Blacks ship looks like that except there is a huge freaking skull on the front.

The only crew you would be missing is a medic and a steward. Steward is,only needed if you take high passage tickets. Not sure what the penalty is for not having a medic. I think no one rides with you.


One thing, I didn't see the computer statistics for that ship you linked to. What page did that come from?

Hrrrm. The page...

Google search results for "traveller rpg 200 ton yacht"

Could be that it is a fan creation.

That's cool I found it
 It's from an architect who runs a blog called "Yet Another Traveller Blog".

Quick questions:

Are there any trucks scheduled for afternoon delivery?

Can Zyg just dispatch a truck with a fictitious driver (Zap) ?
(this could be hack roll)

Yeah, that'd be no problem. No roll necessary.

My Dudes!!!

I have created a ship design spreadsheet!

Follow the link below:

Starship Design Spreadsheet

And edit the grey squares. I'd love to answer any questions you have about it.

I still need to add in a total cost compiler, including cost for the designer and plans, as well as the time to complete construction. I also want to add in a bit the reports how many of each type of profession is needed for the ship. So, just a little more to do.

Thanks!

I've added the CER calculation to it now. That is the rating that lets you know how profitable the ship will be if used as a trader vessel. Fun playing with it.

A standard 100 ton hull with a single pilot and minimum drives and fuel (no weapons either) has a CER of 3.5. Pretty solid I guess. A cool campaign idea would be the PCs are a small caravan of these ships going from world to world together. Each PC would need pilot though.

Hi guys,

Wiki updated with Bron's neighboring worlds, Mazus' ship entered, and adventure logs added for the first three scenes.

Check it out here.

My Dudes, I've created another tool. This is more for the GM, but if you want to use it because you are inspired to create worlds and sectors... I present an animal encounter generator spreadsheet! You choose the planet's size and atmosphere, as well as what type of area the the animal encounters are in and viola! the sheet creates the animal encounter table for you. Just copy it out into a word document or something.

Link: Animal Encounter Table Generator

Enjoy!

Not sure if I want/need to build a generator for a single world because they are so fast and easy. I don't like the websites that build a whole sector at once, because as I generate the worlds one at a time, a tapestry of the history and background of the worlds builds, and when I've completed a small group, I feel like I know them. I don't get that feeling if all the world are generated at once without my involvement.

Ok team, I've combined all my spreadsheet tools into one file now. I even added a world generator. It will create a text line that can be put into the traveller poster maker websight to speed up creating sector maps.

Oh no, guys! Don't tell me we're fading. This fight is almost over. Next round the ship will be lifting off the ground.

Sweet! How do you feel about continuing? Do you want to run single character, all 4 characters? Run as single character with the others as NPCs? Some other combination?

Well, I hope that the others return.

We can solo too, maybe with a different character? Maybe use Tomasina or another candidate from Mazus Black's project? Or someone from the wastes on Bron?
