  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    Yeh I must admit that crossed my mind too I can by the black chamber being fatally compromised some how and Shiller comes back with some power over the black chamber. But doesn't explain why the other agencies haven't put...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    Well as one form on magic is Kabbalistic tradition which is all about language I suspect that the OCINT section of MOSAD are fairly badass....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    One would hope so I was at my local renal unit doing HD Dialysis on friday and boy am I am every glad the dialysis machines where not network connected :-) Though technically this might cause a delay in me...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I suspect that the budget meetings only have clinicians and mangers with Jen from the it crowd level of knowledge about it security and they saw the $5milion line and deleted it. Presumbaly the NHS version of Bob wasn't invited...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Ah no the Traveller jump system meant that you don't always come out at the same place having better computers/software allowed you to reduce the risk. The risk would be that you end up pointing away from your target and...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Classically in Treveller you used boost mid point turn over decelerate and jumped with 0 Delta V - its the most cost-effective way and safer. Military ships could jump with higher delta v's however managing to jump accurately enough so...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Designed using book 5, not sure if there are limits to what speed you can engange the J drives at might be tricky jumping at say > .3 C ill have to check my collection of LBB's...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Np wasn't expecting how expensive it would be. Would make a good plot point for a traveller or snapshot adventure board and take over an incoming planetoid and save a world from destruction....
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Though I suspect that I might be closer to the dungeon master IRL but as proper wargamer I would have had a MRLS battery pre registered on that exit node with 666 squadrons TSR2's on QRF for a possible laydown...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    I spent 15 years working for British Telecom when I read the first laundry files I thought my kind of people :-) Though hopefully I am less whiny than Bob...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Interested by this I dug out my old traveller books and ran the numbers on what it would cost to produce such a weapon using the Traveller ship design rules. On idea was you find a suitable planetoid in the...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Id take my tech 15 power armour and a FGMP 15 over a M4 any day :-)...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Yes technically but I don't recall seeing many realistic ships with 6g manoeuvre drives and I was taking planetkillers being the EE doc smith style. And I doubt that a 6G manoeuvre drive would cope with being run flat out...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    And when you get higher tech like say the traveller meson guns purely kinetic weapons tend to lose effectiveness certainly at the top end my power armoured imperial marines where running a pair of high x ray lazers as dedicated...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Well the classic Traveller STL was very much Newtonian mechanics you would not be accelerating any thing to any where near C. Of course some of the JTAS supplements with input from JPL had some interesting speculative anti particle beam...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    I think the idea was that piracy only worked in border areas where the imperium's writ didn't really run the Canon traveller galaxy is very large and the Navy and scouts are spread very thin....
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    Ah no depends on your grade not how much you earn Both Bob and MO are fairly senior Civil Servants now and they started on the M&P track. And Bob was probably always officer class (they might have screwed him...
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    Yes in the more formal workplaces those that require suits its fairly common work round the city and 3-4 inch pumps are fairly standard for women working in finance....
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    Erm I think your missing some of the subtle aspects of the UK's class system he is obviously middle class by birth we don't know what MO's parents where but anyone on the profesoral track is upper middle class....
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    NCIS would be one candidate esp as liaison with the Deep Ones. I can just Imagaine the sceen in the squad room. Gibbs: Some idiot smuggled a shogoth onto a submarine. Grab your gear!...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    The Uk's own eqvielent in the GPO also had some interesting powers and had a terifing reputation (makes the laundrys auditors seem tame). When I was a branch secretary for the mangers union in BT and did the course on...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    And that at minimum Sf don't carry them anyway a level 2 ward is as least as good as modern body armor with out the weight penalty l3 even more so...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    I suspect that they would be considered a destructive device given you can tune then to emit lot of prompt radiation....
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    But it is a known Existential threat that would feed into what roles the armed forces where built for. And that's not considering what limits the Blue Hades might have enforced - would they really want a bunch of monkeys...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    Or have a special purpose head for a JADAM designed to home on high thaum readings....
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    They are large and there are physical limits to how fast they can move there heads without snapping something. Large animals arn't as fast as small ones and with modern PD they can switch targets very fast look at any...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    Yes I just realized the problem with the basilisk is they seem to be LOS level point defence only an ac130 circling above the clouds would be hard to engage. Unless theAfar have combat metrologists who can make clouds go...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    I thought that might be a reference to the original cassie does alex know she was sacrificed ?...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    It would have been interesting if he had been a 3lbb (3 liitle black books) Traveller player and a proper wargamer not one of those hippy roleplayers :-) Given the way you can manipulate the physical universe in the landryvers...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Equoid
    I did wonder how Shiller would be able to survive long term on the Plateau. And wouldn't one of 666 squadron reapers or its USA equivalent have used a hellfire missile on him by now....
