Vern has the ability to sneak, except not necessarily the total invisibility of normal Traveller Droyne; I have been on the fence about psionics in general, we haven't used them, and it seems to be fine, so I am happy to leave them to the side.

What does everyone else think? I mean maybe ... except I don't know.

I never liked Psionics, too Woo. If I wanted magic I'd play an FRPG.

It's a holdover from the days of Uri Geller and The Men Who Stare at Goats.

Still, plenty of SF has it, and Traveller has kept it.....


There is no reason for us to fight here, really. It's just that Zhenya hates being used. If they'd asked us to help smuggle stuff to the rebels, fine, but this?

If the majority of the group don't want to fight Zhenya will accept that, and get revenge later.

This sums up my personal opinion on psi also, not judging if anyone else likes it, though.

Combat, frontal attack wise, the only thing I have to add is that the auto-cannon is roughly equal to being attacked, it will do a +4 attack (w/o operator skill) on someone in CA at very long, and the someone attacking w/gauss rifles will also be at +4 before skill; these things probably would be common knowledge.

I am fine with no psionics as well. :D

Yeah, cool armour.

Zhenya's reasoning:

These vehicles are resupply and reinforcement for the Guerrilla force we are going to fight quite soon. It seems sensible to deny them those resources.

There may be a reward for capturing/killing "Gaston".

( Also, these people were disrespectful to us, well, to Zhenya anyway... )

Mad, bad and dangerous to know... Still, it would be good to try out all these fancy new weapons and armour and whatnot. We didn't get dressed up for nuffin'

Yes, nice armor, vonPilsner. 8-)

I was waiting for Rojo or Theta to chime in; however, it looks as if the deed is done.

How good is the camo effect on Theta and Zhenya's CA? It might be useful to deploy out from the train before we start shooting.

When we go, first shot counts, and we want it.

Surprise DM's

Zhenya and Theta can use the camo as +2 for the BD surprise, considering the BD probably has the chameleon feature as well.

The train is a bit big, probably should shrink it down some, it is long though. Maybe just cut down the size of the squares, make them half the size, 25 m, or even less at 20 m. The Technical (truck with the 50 mm auto-cannon), is still around 300 m away or very long range.
