"I read this, and I have a big question, How does one go about
"Modifying" SG2 rules for Traveller?"

A1: Mark Kinsey created the modular cutters, defined how many people
occupy them, what sorts of weapons could hurt them (none we had) and how
their missiles would work (designed for space combat, poorly). He also
had I
think and alternate damage system for vehicles (or maybe I mis-recall
And he differentiated his vehicles in terms of movement rates, not
vanilla SG2 does. That is mostly what he did.

A2: Allan Goodall has written a Traveller conversion for SG2. So have I.
Allan's worked by saying "a gauss rifle in Traveller is a gauss rifle in
SG2" - that is, he used the same stats. So he just converted "PGMP/FGMP"
Plasma Gun, etc. He maintained the SG2 balance of weapons vs. each other
vs. armour types. My conversion on the other hand tried to preserve the
relative relationships of power of weapon to weapon and weapon to armour
present in the Traveller Universe, so a gauss rifle has stats that fit
that context, rather than vanilla SG2 stats. Allan's conversion is up on
web somewhere (when I talk to him next I'll ask him where....) and so is
scenario Plasma Ambush, which is a Traveller scenario done in SG2. My
conversion was only ever a partial job (some kinks to work out) and has
been published yet.


Also, thanks to Redleg and Bobby for the links to some pics. They'll go
the AAR shortly.


Take care all,
