Traveller Character Skills

Character Skills

Changes to the base skills

#

Weapons

four categories: melee, guns, lasers, hvy wpns

when a character has a skill rank in a category they pick one weapon as their preferred type of that category (they are assumed to practice with that one most) but they are assumed to have one rank less skill in all weapons of that category

  • a character with Blade-1 is assumed to have skill-0 with all other melee weapons
  • a character with Rifle-2 is assumed to have skill-1 with all other slug weapons
  • a character with laser rifle-3 is assumed to have skill-2 with other energy weapons

simplifies character sheet
