Here's the dropbox link to my finished (???) character sheet. Somebody fact check it. I'm going to play a scientist named Fern who has a passion for the life sciences.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/tayugpt5j7xxd6j/Fern.xls

As for actual me, my name is Isaac. I'm an electrician by day, mad scientist beer brewer by night. I'm 29, married but no kids yet. I've been playing RPGs in one form or another for about 15 years, although I've only been playing with rules since last year. I primarily play D&D so this will be my first Travelling experience.

Rules free

I'm kind on the same boat, of having played RPGs for more than a decade, but mostly without real, established rules until recently. I find it way more fun though (with the rules).

Hoping double posts aren't forbidden

Schnozzle, here's Fern's fact check.

First: on your characteristics, you have Dexterity 6 with a (-1) modifier. Note that characteristics on the 6-8 range have no modifier at all;

Second: note that your "TL14 Computer/5", at that weight, is a Hand Computer, not a HUD, Wafer Jack, Computer Terminal or similar. The total mass is also off by 0.5kg, but meh;

Third: on the character creation record, it's noted you gained Engineer (any) at both your first and second terms, yet in the end, you only have Engineer (life support) 1. You should have either a second rank of Engineer (life support), or one of Engineer (m-drive, j-drive, electronics or power);

Fourth: similarly, you gained a full rank of Language (any) at your last term, yet noted it as 0 instead of 1 and specialized;

Fifth: again on the CCR, you mention gaining Admin at third term, yet the skill is nowhere to be seen;

Sixth: again on the CCR, you listed out 3 instances of gaining Life Science, yet in the end you have Life Science 4. Basic training, which is 0 skill level, doesn't count towards positive levels. Unless, of course, this is your extra (package/solo) skill, connection skill or similar. I suspect, however, your extra skill is Gun Combat (slug pistols), as I didn't see mention of you acquiring it anywhere;

Seventh: on the matter of Gun Combat, however you may have acquired it, it can't be specialized and level 0. You either have non-specialized Gun Combat 0, or specialized Gun Combat (slug pistols) 1;

Eighth: like 6th, you gained 1 instance of Computers at fourth term, and ended up with Computers 2. Remember basic training is 0, and 0+1=1. Or, again, this could be an extra skill;

Ninth: you mentioned mustering out a scientific toolkit, yet it is not listed on your belongings. Careful not to forget about it, and note that it does weigh 12kg.

That is all I could find that seems wrong. One other suggestion, though, is to scratch that "equipment/belongings" sheet from the first page and list everything at the second page. As of now, your two equipment lists are inconsistent with one another, each having items the other doesn't. But it's not really -wrong-!

So I think I followed a flowchart correctly and all I have to do no is buy equipment.

My career path ended up making no sense whatsoever. Pretty sure my character is insane. Or dead.

EDIT: NEVERMIND APPARENTLY I NEGLECTED TO CONSIDER THE SHEER AMOUNT OF TIMES MY CHARACTER GOT SHOT HAS SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGED MY CAREER PATH.

Oh and I'm Grugg, I have a beard. That is essentially my bio at this point.

Metaphor Shmetaphor

I am ALL FOR Grugg having a monkey. (At least then he'll still "have" a tail... *snicker*)

Haven't you always wanted a monkey

Well this should be interesting......


I am dealing with some major health issues right now and Vanadia is away on business for the week. I will be a little on the quiet side this week for posting and updates.

With that in mind, I have set a deadline for myself to get this game started by the end of May at the latest.

So please bear with me.

Get Better

Alacrity, I hope you (And family if applicable) get better soon. It is never fun to be ill. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Best wishes

Tough to hear you're having health issues, specially when that's preceded by 'major'. Here's hoping you get better than you were before the illness! You do have a padre's prayers.

And I don't think you should worry about deadlines as long as you're having this kind of problem. Just relax, you know.

A question of scale

In the standard maps of traveller, what is the scale of the maps? I do not see a reference anywhere. One square is ?

..

Each hex is one parsec. Which is the same as one jump number
