Back in the early 1980's, I played Traveller. Loved the game, but it was uber-challenging in scope. As GM, I had to prepare not one planet, but dozens! Anyway, these make me long for playing Traveller again... Cheers!
That hurts, kris ! Ouch! I've seen deck plans before, and they made me drool, and yearn for my trusty laser pistol. I played some Traveller, in the later 80's, as a Player, not a GM. Had some great adventures, very exciting, very fun, and at times, downright scary! I really want to play Traveller again...
We ran one adventure where we picked up some hi-tech space suits. We jumped to a low-tech world, where we sold them off for 1 Million+ Credits! We purchased a shuttle which could just reach orbit, which allowed us to keep our Scout ship in orbit, when we needed to go to the surface of a world. That was the first time, ever, I enjoyed gaming economics! The Shuttle even had one hard-point, where we could mount a weapon, after we made another economic splash, earning another million Credits... If only we would have had floor plans for the Shuttle, and the Scout. [Sigh!...]
Not enough time to get players together to play D&D, let alone Traveller. I know if I ran a Traveller game, it would be a blast: with 39 years of DM'ing experience, I know I could run a fun game, with the "out of the box" thinking, players I have now. I need more lifetime's to play everything I want to play! GRRRrrr!... Cheers -- I think!
drl2 , I had totally forgotten about that aspect of starships, within Traveller... Fascinating tidbit. Traveller truly was ahead of its time. I still long to play it again, but I have such a hard time getting my players together for my D&D game, I can't muddy the water with another RPG game (it would be the same players...). Cheers!

margaret: Putting this here because I don't know where else to post it - the site is not letting me post responses today. And it wouldn't let me log out and relog either. Not sure what is going on

Draklith: have your internet settings changed? first thing i"d check, sometimes when you install a new program or something, it will change your settings

margaret: It eventually resolved itself. The computer did update at some point this past week, but I never changed anything in the browser settings to resolve the issue. This site just seems to get cranky with my computer sometimes

thelibraryghost: Is thread necro-ing frowned upon here? (It would be in the Crafting Tips and Tricks forum, not just adding comments in General Crafting.)
