Traveller General /TravGen/

Not a Place of Honor edition

Traveller is a classic science fiction system first released in 1977. In its original release it was a general purpose SF system, but a setting was soon developed called The Third Imperium, based on classic space opera tropes of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, with a slight noir tint.
Though it can support a wide range of game types, the classic campaign involves a group of retired veterans tooling around in a spaceship, taking whatever jobs they can find in a desperate bid to stay in business, a la Firefly or Cowboy Bebop.

You guys ever heard of Carmen Miranda's Ghost? I found the album about a month ago and have been interested in running some sort of Traveller-esque space adventure since.

>>68365990
Traveller is a decent fit for the type of tale those songs tell. You can hear a lot of classic SF behind them, even if there are not always any obvious single inspirations. Traveller springs from many of the same places, different though its interpretation may be.

Of course, many of these songs are about things going wrong, and my experience is that Traveller players will move mountains to keep such things from happening.

Which just means a Ref has to be devious.

I've been sifting through both websites and my collection to find a combo that works with Mirror March in:
>Allowing the card to be played multiple times
>Casting it over and over once per turn
>Returning it from the graveyard
>Using it on a creature with such bullshit "Enters Battlefield With" rules on it
Is there any particularly nasty cards that come to mind when looking at this card? There has to be something absolutely ridiculous out there.

Why does Cthulhu have wings when he lives under water?

>>68333213
Cthulhu isn't native to the sea.
He's from a gas giant and used his wings to fly there.
In space he can't use his wings to fly. He uses the power of his mind. He could do this in an atmosphere as well and probably does when he wants to seem more intimidatingly godlike.
In Lovecraft's universe space functions like it does in TREASURE PLANET, because of Victorian era ideas on what space was like.
His race can modify their bodies as they see fit. Adding and subtracting limbs, etc. He probably keeps his wings on display for intimidation purposes.

>>68361985
I'm pretty sure that's not what happened in the actual book. The popular depiction of Cthulhu is actually based on a religious idol that the main character found that was supposedly made in his image.

Let's do something other than 40k faction creation threads. Let's focus on something more mundane but still prevalent in the 40k universe, namley the myriad of xeno beasts and creatures that inhabit the worlds of the Imperium and beyond.

Fur/Hairs - "Usually a warm blooded creature whose skin has fur or some kind of hair. Often found in mammalia."

So we got a human/humanoid sized alien ape that scavange on food in swamp and is the last of it's kind

We can skip attributes since that only gives it stats for using it on the tabletop in 40k

Rebellion isnt inherently defying all authority. Its revolution, but how that revolution takes form and how it ends is entirely up to the individual. At least thats how I see it, or its a misinterpretation of how the origin works, which I assume is a compelling motive.

A wish of power is enough to essentially push a revolution to its logical conclusion, but what happens when the revolution ends? Does the rebel become the dictator or does he bring rebellion to all corners of the land? Its a destructive cycle unless the rebellion has a clear end in sight.

>>68363378
Ah. My bad. It seems the strawpoll stopped updating for me.

That and not all Rebellions end in Democracy, depending on how you look at it. It can be as simple as massive political reform to the desired state of a state or it can be the changing of power from one hand to the next.

This. There are rules for only one role and the combat is missing hit locations and probably some other stuff too.

I hope they ellaborate on few things too because currently I don't understand why Will was split from Cool and what Dex is supposed to be other than a tax for bullet dodging solos.

But, man, I can commiserate. Buckling under group pressure is tough. Just make the game as best as you can so that you can enjoy it, ok? At least 5e isn't tough to run! If you want to split folks out, try doing a planar game where folks end up in different dimensions with different systems.

It's a kind of not-entirely-unjustified hipsterism. Stonemaier games tend to be pretty unambitious riffs on already successful games. Combine that with a clear emphasis on presentation and it starts to seem like vapid trend chasing. The reddit-tier fanboyism and hugboxing of some of the hardcore followers doesn't help this either.

Dark and Stormy Night Edition

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results. The intention is for the system to be a highly flexible narrative system, adaptable to most any conceivable setting and premise.
