Hey /tg/

I got my kickstarter copy of Traveller 5 in and am starting to work through the book.
It's a big book, a lot of writing. Not sure about how it's structured though (section orders), and there is no index.
Anyone else have it?
Otherwise General.

Wait, Traveller 5? Kickstarter? I thought there was only Classic and Mongoose.

Anonymous 2013-06-05 04:46:16 No.25252188
here's 5

but does no one want to talk about traveller? bad night for it?

Anonymous 2013-06-05 04:48:17 No.25252233
Yeah....I got it.

My power level is too weak. I mean, seriously. So many fucking charts. All crunch, no time for fluff.

I pick it up from time to time to try to push through it, but fuck, it is THICK. It's like I'm studying in college all over again.

Anonymous 2013-06-05 04:52:52 No.25252338
yeah, you can skip a lot of the charts if your a player, or if your not going to run a very hard-science campaign

I've been looking to get into Traveller for a ling while, but the different versions and God-knows-how-many splatbooks are intimidating. I don't know where to start. Hell, I've literally only heard about this new version from this thread.

What's the difference between this and Classic and Mongoose?

Anonymous 2013-06-05 05:15:28 No.25252874
Is it really that dense?

Also, no bookmarks on the download? For a book that NEEDS it? Jeez.

Anonymous 2013-06-05 05:16:11 No.25252886
Classic = Original
Mongoose = Edited and easier version. Good.
V5 = Newest version by the Classic guy.

Is that good or bad?

I don't know.

I have the bigass damn book in front of me and I have no idea.

Anonymous 2013-06-05 05:19:44 No.25252969
Haven't read it yet, but I'd say it's probably good if you liked Classic and wanted to see where the creator wanted things to go. It sounds like a lot of charts and for Traveller that's a good thing as it is a very heavy duty sandbox style game and charts are super useful.

Anonymous 2013-06-05 05:20:58 No.25253007
What about someone that has no prior personal experience with Traveller?

Anonymous 2013-06-05 05:23:12 No.25253051
I'd say go Mongoose. It's pretty easy to pick-up, you really only need the core rulebook to play (alien splats are fun, but ask the GM first). Looking into T5 now and it seems to be pretty solid as far as rules goes (sort of a clarification of Mongoose/Classic rules) and has some rules built into the basic for alien characters.

Mongoose would be the wiser route, but if you're feeling adventurous maybe check out T5. Looking at it now, it's a pretty decent set.

Anonymous 2013-06-05 05:25:36 No.25253081
I like streamlined rules and especially-comprehensive core books, and seeing as T5 is the newest edition, I'll take a look at that. I wonder if they still have the kill-yourself-before-you-finish-chargen chargen?

Still, concerns about the thread are that it's an exceptionally dense book.

Anonymous 2013-06-05 05:29:49 No.25253163
It looks like a ton of these charts are just to show probabilities of dice rolls and things like that. It's a dense book, one that'd be better off in a few booklets that come in a box rather than as a college text.

That being said if I GM I'd like the big book, but I'd rather my players only have what they need.

My mate came around today and we genned up a character. He failed a survival roll in the army, but we decided just subtract from Endurance instead of death.
Let him live long enough to destroy some riotous mob with a Laser Carbine

they couldn't even touch him, they were STR 3 and DEX 4

2d6 based. add your skill.
success of a normal difficulty task is 8+
harder difficulty 10+ etc.
Combat depends on the edition, in Classic you roll to hit, needing an 8+, applying weapon, armor and cover Dice Modifiers
If you hit you inflict damage based on your weapon.
damage is reduced (temporarily) from physical statistics (Like STR, DEX, ENDurance)
so you roll 1 dice damage for a dagger, inflicting 4 damage. this is reduced from say, Strength.
If the targets Strength becomes 0 because of this, he/she is unconscious.

If a target has 2 of their physical statistics reduced to 0, they are unconscious and badly injured

If a target has all 3 stats reduced to 0, they are dead.

T5 has you rolling under
so it's XD6 +/- DM <= Characteristic + Skill +/- Mods
easy checks are 1d6, normal are 2d6, hard 3d6
