Introduction

This site is kinda whack. The main thing here is that everything goes down in "Chat". (from the bar at the top)

More help here:
the-hitchhiker-guide-rpg-chat-t47585.html

Once in chat, choose "Traveller - Classic"

You will see the chat box, with lots of random chat. this is the "lobby/hallway" with all sorts of random gamers

On the Left-hand side, you will see a picture of your character, unless you haven't made one yet...

Click on this picture to chat from your characters perspective (called being In Character.)

Once in character, you can use the buttons on the bottom right to "Do" and "say" stuff.
"write" is used for just writing

To go to a different place, look at the top of the chat box.

Then a list of places will turn up:

Ignore the top 3 places. i need to delete them.

All the places we will use are under "The Spinward Marches"

We are currently in the "Regina Subsector", and most of us are on the surface of Boughene.

You will all start in different places, so just tell me where you are, and i'll make the place and generate its stats from the map.

We use this online map:

So! Sir Brackingham has joined us!

I'm not sure exactly which planet you start on... but you do have a 200 ton free trader vessel...
I'll work out the running costs/revenue for you if you like

OK: 200 Ton freed trader, called "The Lance of Profit" if i remember correctly... (i checked the archive)
Free trader stats from book 02:
FreeTrader :200-ton
Jump Drive A (1 parsec jumps max)
Maneuver Drive A (can pull 1G)
Fuel: 30 Tons - sufficient for 1 jump and endless maneuver
Computer model/1
10 Staterooms (for crew and passengers)
20 Low Berths (for dirty ole low passage, or emergency freezing of casualties)
2 hardpoints. weapons can be installed here.
2 tons free space for fire control. (or anything)
Cargo Capacity: 82 Tons.
Streamlined hull. (means you can skim unrefined fuel from gas giants)

Now for running costs:

Required Crew:
Pilot: salary 6,000 Cr/mnth
Engineer: salary 4,000 Cr/mnth
medic: salary 2,000 Cr/mnth
Steward: salary 3,000 Cr/mnth

so a total of 15,000 Cr of wages each month.

Fuel: 500Cr/ton of refined fuel.
your 30 ton fuelage allows for 1 jump, and usually one does 2 jumps per month, so you'll need 60 ton/month.

that's 30,000 Cr/mnth on fuel.

Life support costs 2,000 Cr per occupied stateroom

low berths cost 100 Cr per occupied berth.


TOTAL RUNNING COST/MONTH: 45,000 Cr (not including life support)


OK. Revenue

the amount of passengers and cargo differs depending on population of the worlds being travelled between. (you gotta roll it)

you can do 2 jumps per month. so i'll X2 everything at the end

rough averages of a trip between two average worlds:

PASSENGERS:

High Passengers: 6. 10,000 Cr each. so 60,000 Cr. X2 = ~120,000 Cr. ok you just covered your running costs!

Mid Passengers: none can be taken... all staterooms occupied. (4 crew + 6 high passengers)

Low Passengers: 9. 1,000 Cr each, so 9,000 Cr. X2 = ~18,000 Cr

CARGO: (ships at 1000Cr/Ton)

Major Cargo: 15 tons. 15,000 Cr X2 = ~30,000 Cr

Minor Cargo: 15 tons. 15,000 Cr X2 = ~30,000 Cr


So, TOTAL REVENUE/MONTH: ~198,000Cr

life support costs/jump: staterooms: (10 rooms occupied) 20,000 Cr. X2 40,000 Cr/month
Low berths: 9. 900 Cr. X2 = 1,800 Cr/month
total life support cost of 41,800 Cr


TOTAL RUNNING COSTS/MONTH: 86,800 Cr
AVERAGE REVENUE/MONTH: 198,000 Cr
PROFITS/MONTH: 111,200 Cr


So it's looking pretty good!

haha i knew it was one of yours... so; Walter you are running back to the ATV on the surface of Boughene. We have 1 turn, and then you'll be able to get in, and start it up/strap in etc. (will take 1 turn to do)

So... I assume Walter Anders and the myself will just attack the shit outta these rioters...
