Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

T2K 1E grows out of CT and En Garde, plus Frank's love of modern warfare. T2K 2E grows out of T2K 1E and a heavy dose of T2300, A splash of Space:1889 and another dose of CT. Traveller: The New Era grows out of T2K and the CT/MT setting. . It all risks becoming quite confusing for those who weren't...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

Thanks aramis - appreciate the info on BW/MG! . Oh, I'd love to see a new take on Traveller: 2300 / 2300AD... Traveller ( and MegaTraveller etc) however didn't occupy that same timeline ... they were their own continuity. Early distributors soliciting articles for T2300 claimed it to be the bridge ...

Re: YZE adaptation for Twilight: 2000 gameplay

M16 A1 and A2 can fire the same current ammo. With fairly similar extension. The biggest difference? Not safe to use tracers. Unless it's got the newer barrels. Which, thanks to Army supply chains, most army ones did. And Navy Supply likewise for the Navy and Marines. And, since the A1 was phasing o...

Re: Miniatures

my minis preference is 10mm... but 15's good.
I dislike 28/30mm for tabletop use.

I never used minis for the original.

Re: AIME or TOR

Hi, Can we start up this old argument again. I have both, because I couldn't decide between either. Also which does Journeys better AIME or TOR? Gareth TOR. I found AIME both poorly worded and poor in concept... I only got the player's book because I had a potential player base heavily invested in ...

Re: Newsletter? || 2d6-System instead of Pool?

Right, but the Star Wars Dice have a very unintuitive distribution of probabilities due to their sizes and colors. :) I was speaking of the pool size calculation, not the distribution on the faces. D8's in Forbidden Lands are 6-7 = 1S and 8=2S. A single FL d8 has an expected number of successes of ...

Re: Vehicles, kit , etc

I, for one, hope the vehicles and kit don't get overly bogged in the minutiae... For example, the practical differences between the M16-A2 and -A3 aren't that much, and the practical differences in game stats are probably below resolution, unless they're seriously altering the fundamental score rang...

Re: So Glad Its Back But....

I'll note that I opened an unofficial subforum on TravellerRPG.com for the YZE version.

TravellerRPG.com is the official FFE BBS. Official discussion for this ed is wherever FL decides.
There has been a slow but steady T2K subformum for GDW versions now controlled via FFE.
