Speaking of role playing I am still in mourning for a playing character I lost this week in a Traveller game. I am not going to mention the name of the referee but I will say that I will never be involved in a game with this guy ever again. :-)
My main gripe is that most of the damage was done that killed me came from one of three shots. This shot was at the end of a six second turn in which the npc had decided to jump, jumped, moved 150m (which was a difficult second action in a system that only allows one significant action), landed, acquired a target which would theoretically be prone with some cover, in the dark, firing an ACR, in microgravity, shot and hit. The NPC doing the shooting had a low level of skill. If the referee had thrown a twelve and not a six and not specifically prohibited me from doing the same thing two or three combat rounds previously.
This was of course all done when the referee had made a scenario for 12 PCs/NPCs harder that it was in the book and when two of the players had already dropped out.
