Its listed as: Electronics (Computers)
You can pick it as one of your 'ranked skills' or pick Electronics 0... at least that way you don't get a penalty of you are wanted to use 'computers' for anything that would need a check.

Hi savoylen,

I'm new to RPGX, and am currently playing in a D&D 5e NPSG to learn the ropes. Imveros suggested I also have a look at Traveller when I first arrived, and I came across this call during a perusal of the 'games-seeking' forum. I'm interested to try a different genre, and was wondering whether this game is open to new Traveller players? Thanks!

Absolutely! I did a video (up a few posts) to help 5e players get quickly oriented to Traveller. You'll see that you already know all the major bits of Traveller with the experience you have already. Also, NPSG is a GREAT way to get what you need to play on RPGXing regardless of the rules-system, so kudos for making that leap!

Regardless though, I'm happy to take new folks without those things - we'll help you with all that you'll need to know on the 'how to' and be willing to let us know if you have to jet away.
Check out The Oath.

Welcome - I hope you'll consider working up an app!

I was waiting a day for the reply. Turns out the reply was on page 2 while I was refreshing page 1. Don't I feel silly.

Hey Savy,

I'm going to throw my hat in the ring. I see you have a custom chargen. Would you prefer characters made that way or is it fine to use the lifepath gen ?

That was the attempt, as you've written, but the image does not embed. I can't figure out why


Edit:

I can leave it as a hyperlink

Do what makes you happy - I'm a big fan the lifepath mini-game. Go for it! If some odd stills pop up, we'll tweak them at the end. For example, if Pilot (Starship) comes up, we'll replace something like Fly (plane).

Great to see you here!

I'd edit it for you but in the 'recruit' thread, but I can not get to your code.
I resized the picture for you to make it a better size for you post.



 


Don't worry about it too much... if you have the link, we can fix all this on the other side when it comes time.

Good job!

Sounds good. Any restrictions on the number of terms, careers (i.e. psion), or pre career education?
