Alien World 2

Not the prettiest planet. But I thought it looked interesting enough to post here. Not sure what to call it yet or what Traveller characters in the future will explore it under duress.
Moved the star for a darker shot.

Aslan Cultural and Career Battles

Humans in Aslan culture? How cool is that? Reading some more of the Mongoose Aslan book while I'm coding my CharGen for it. So humans can be adopted and raised as Aslan. Nice. And Aslan can choose a career from the Core Rulebook. That's like an open-world character generator for me. No limits. There's even rules about human sexes in various Aslan careers. I want to role-play in that!

Aslan Battle of the Sexes

It took me awhile. But I finally finished the career template code for my Aslan character generator for Mongoose Traveller. I'm writing the code in Python (my favorite language of all time since deciding to learn it a year ago).

I'm using the career rules from the Mongoose Alien Module 1 book. The Traveller Core Rulebook and Vargr careers were easier to make templates for. But for Aslan, careers and skills are masculine or feminine. And some are for both. So that added a layer of data checking. I don't mind the extra complexity. More fun for me to solve in Python. And I get to learn more about one of the alien races in Traveller in the process.

Notice that I didn't use the word sophont. Such a dumb word. Oh, you didn't notice? Good. Then you haven't been politically corrupted.

Lost Interest in D6 Space While Reading About Die Rolls

Was reading the rules for D6 Space just now. The first example (page 55) of die rolling for a task is "digging a hole". The next skill example is "jumping onto a table".

I lost interest already in this space RPG. I didn't even look to see if a target number is used or not.

Anyone here read RPG rules that had lame skill examples for their die rolls?

Have Vargr Will Travel

Well, I just finished programming my Vargr character generator for Mongoose Traveller. I'm using Mongoose's Alien Module 2: Vargr book for the character attributes, skills, equipment, weapons, homeworld, pack leadership, etc.

I still have to do one last thing though. Tomorrow I'll program a Vargr name generator for it, using the rules from the book, so that the Vargr characters will have names on their sheets.

I may end up doing a character generator for the Aslan next.
