  3. Tau'ri teams always have military leaders. Logically as teh SGP is sometimes touted as aliens operating under human leadership you could extend that but just as easily you could classify the human members of a majority alien team as "technical advisors"...

  11. So some potentially good news, we are getting closer to a new series in the franchise, and there are rumors going around that they will tie up SGU's cliffhanger, with a possible direct to video movie. I wouldn't mind if they mixed it in with the new series, bring back any of the main actors that want a paycheck, and through flashbacks, tell the story of what happened, especially to Eli, and how they hopefully get back to Earth.
  12. Ok so this isn't a ripoff of the Stargate series. Look up John Anthony West. He died last year, but he was extremely well known in the "fringe" Egyptology circles. In a nutshell, the emerging belief is that the ancient Egyptians, as we know them, did not construct the pyramids, or the Sphinx. Ancient texts very clearly state, that Khufu organized the REPAIRS to the Great Sphinx, not constructed it. Even their list of kings goes back tens of thousands of years. Anyways, in the mid-90s, West conned a very respected geologist/geophysicist, to go to Egypt, where he would be be personally guided to all of the major sites in Egypt. When they were at the Sphinx, Schoch was distracted by the hydroerosion patterns on the walls inside the sphinx enclosure. Further study led him to the belief that the only way that kind of erosion could have occurred, would have been massive amounts of rain of many, many years, and that the last time that part of Africa had seen weather like that, was roughly 9000 years ago, long before the Sphinx is currently accepted to have been constructed. He later presented his paper to his peers, and almost all accepted it as factual. When you factor in multiple sites that have since been discovered, such as Göbekli Tepe, which has been dated to just under 12,000 years old, and evidence of advanced agriculture techniques that have been long believed to have been invented 6000 years LATER by the Sumerians, as well as a pyramid in Indonesia, that is definitely man-made, and has organic material collected from inside, using core sampling, that dates to 26,000 years ago, there very likely was an advanced global human civilization that was eradicated by some massive global disaster. In essence, resetting the clock. The whole Stargate franchise is partly based on a book written by Erich von Danniken in the 60's, called Chariots of the Gods. You might recognize him from the show Ancient Aliens. Even the Egyptians that were present when the Greeks settled ancient Egypt said they didn't know who built the pyramids, or any other megalithic structure. And, there is proof that there was a "great flood", in the form of tsunami on colossal scale, as well as rapid sea level rise of more than 400 feet, in a matter of weeks. Plus, last November, a paper was published that established a celestial impact on Greenland was the likely culprit of the rising sea levels and the corresponding brief ice age. Think about it, where are the bulk of human settlements right now? On the shorelines. So where are any potential metal structures? Likely all rusted away. the Titanic has been on the bottom of the Atlantic for just over 100 years, and is rapidly deteriorating. And I haven't even touched on the Indian vedas, the army of monkey-men (likely neanderthals), and the Ramayana, where a road was built across the sea to modern Sri Lanka, so that the god Rama could rescue his wife, who was kidnapped. Interestingly enough, images from satellites show the underwater remnants of a man made road, stretching from mainland India to Sri Lanka.
  13. I had a chance to read through the current beta version last night. Based on what we see in the shows, teams are ALWAYS led by military personnel. It's safe to assume that everybody on the team will hold either a military or GS rank. There are some civilian GS ranks, that outweigh military rank, though, it should be understood that unless stated otherwise in the warning or op order that a civilian is in command of the mission, that commend defaults to the team leader. Take the movie Predator, for example. Dutch was the senior soldier on the mission, but Dillon (a civilian with a higher GS rank) was technically in charge. Unless this is specifically addressed, I think I may find it easier to inject an NPC into the group, as the ranking officer. Having run military-themed campaign in other settings, it is almost always a sure bet that the player put in command always lets it go to his head. This isn't normally a problem in fantasy settings, where one player will usually naturally emerge as the de facto leader. The military is a different animal altogether.
  14. I'm from Texas as well, though currently living out of the country, in Kentucky. Moving back when this lease is up in the spring. Probably going to be in the Kerrville area, but I haven't fully decided.

    Hello there!

    Hi just rediscovered this project after googling about it predecessor (?) the other stargate rpg. I do have some questions about this project. It seems to be a SG1 flavored dnd game is that correct? Also is this officially licensed? and if not what dose that mean (can’t use certain show material?) As I said I was reading about the other one and I noticed the game sort of died when MGM decided to pull out.

    Near human. Eyes change color with emotional state, and can move from visible spectrum to infra red. Immune system is compromised, with only Tau'rin made immuno-boosters and a solid preparation for every mission keeping Domovi fighting. +2 perception +2 int -2 con -2 char. Trained operative on Tau'rin's version of an SG-team. Specialises in assassination, and recovery of Gu'auld Tech. Tau'rin is a Gu'auld test world where the inhabitants were genetically modified to create superior hosts. the result was massive failure. The project, and the world was abandoned. It was assumed that the failed experiment died out, but the survivors stabilized enough to create a civilization. Building from the Technology left from the Gu'auld Masters, the Tau'rins step back into the universe to seek revenge.
  18. Ok so I am a gun guy in real life. Been shooting for 45 years, six in the Army as an Infantryman. Some thoughts on weapons ranges, versus what is currently in print, and what has been suggested. Sidearm - Qualification for the CCDW (concealed carry) permit in Kentucky is 20 rounds, within the designated space on a target that resembles the standard E-type silhouette used by the US military. Range to hit the target is 7m. I can hit a target, generally speaking, out to 25m, anything beyond that will be a waste of ammo, or just suppressive fire. Longarm - this will vary by specific weapon, but 1800m I can guarantee you, it unrealistic. For example, I was regularly knocking down targets at 300m with a standard M16A2 rifle, with no optics. The best I ever did was an EXPENDEX within my platoon, and I hit 18 out of 20 from a standing unsupported position at 500m. Twice. If memory serves, area target for the M4 was 550m, so engaging a larger than man sized target or suppressing an area, that was the max effective range, in general. Point targets, as in a man, the range was 500m. This was strictly iron sights, no optics. Using my AR15, with a 16 inch barrel, and just a 3x optic, I can hit a point target at 500m without much effort, and not just hit it, but hit it in tight groupings. The standard optic used by both the Marines and Army is the Trjicon ACOG, which is a 4x scope, with a fiber optic illuminated reticle. I'll let one of the younger grunts that has direct experience with those chime in on effective ranges. Additionally, the caliber as well as the projectile itself, have a great deal to do with the performance of the weapon. The military is shifting over to the 6.8mm SPC cartridge, which has more power than the current 5.56mm cartridge, further range, and shoots flatter. It also dumps a lot more energy into the target. That said, swap out the FMJ projectile with something with a better ballistic coefficient, and you can get better range, better velocity, and even more damage inflicted on the target. I personally shoot 5.56mm and .300 Blackout. I run standard 55 grain and 62 grain ammo in my 5.56 AR. I am currently running 110 grain Lehigh Defense Controlled Chaos ammo in my 300BLK, from a barrel length half that of my 5.56mm. I am getting 2/3 the velocity, but due to the bullet weight, the ballistic coefficient, and the fact that the projectile is a milled copper hollow point, designed to have four petals curl back, shear off, and create their own wound channels, dumping most of the kinetic energy into the target within the 6-8 inch penetration range, it is my preferred hunting and home defense caliber. BUT, because this is a modification of the casing of the 5.56mm round, using pistol powder rather than rifle powder, and a .30cal projectile, the range suffers. At 200m I am looking at about 12 inches of bullet drop, which means I have to aim a foot higher than my intended point of impact. At 300m, it increases to 18 inches. At a 500m target, you have to aim so high above the target, you aren't able to use the optics anymore. 350 Legend has similar ballistics, as does 7.62x39 (the AK47). I am very seriously considering building an upper receiver for my AR rifle chambered in 6.5 Grendel, which will hit like a hammer, and reach out to 500-800m, shooting very flat. And that's an AR15. As much as I love the shows, it always bothered me why they would use the P90 over existing M4s and variants. The 5.7mm round doesn't really offer close to the armor piercing capabilities of the black tip armor piercing 5.56mm ammo. Yes, the standard magazine holds 50 rounds, but at the rate of fire exhibited on TV, you're going to burn through the 10,000 rounds hauled in by FRED in no time. Besides, with an M4, one or more team members could be also equipped with any make of the conversions to .22LR, making hunting small game an easy task. And a brick of 100 rounds of .22LR takes up hardly any space, and the weight is negligible. A smaller package than a Henry AR-7 in the pack. I was never a sniper, but the effective ranges for any number of commonly used rifles can easily be found. I would look at the general maximum range targets have been engaged in the field, rather than looking at record breaking shots. And as for shotguns, range and damage are dependent on the size of the shot, or slug, fired. When I lived in New York, we were only allowed shotguns to hunt deer, and the furthest I shot a deer, or even tried, with a slug, was 75m. Any further was an increasingly exponential chance of a miss, or hitting it so softly as to make it mad, and come kick me out of the apple tree and kick my ass. Buck shot, as in 00 buck, would be the next longest range, and decreasing in effectiveness and damage according to the smaller size shot used.
  19. OK, I guess I should be thankful to the makers of a certain bug. This RPG release was going to be the sole reason I went to GenCon this year lol. And of course, GenCon was cancelled. I signed up for the kickstarter alert. I am not running a game, don't have a group even, but I think I will download the beta content and get a feel. Huge fan of the IP, and I am really looking forward to this.
  20. It's in it's beta so (as of right now) some things are finished, some aren't. Running a home brew with the beta rules has been really fun. Honestly, the core book isn't that incomplete and has a enough ability for you to play to get a really good feel for what we're going to be getting once it is complete.
  21. I'm a little confused. And I admit, I don't come to these forums often. I was under the impression that the game was completed, and was going to launch at GenCon this year, but covid-19 ruined that for everybody. So it's NOT complete?
  22. Hello! The timing of my discovering this playtest is coincidental, as I'm on my nth re-watch of the Stargate franchise(still in season 1 of SG-1, literally just started, haha) I am a long time GM and player of many systems, most notably Pathfinder/D&D 3.5, nWoD, Dungeon World, Blades in the Dark, and more. Reading through the playtest material, I realize that the SGRPG is based in 5th edition D&D, and yet, I have not played or GM'd a 5th ed game. I'm familiar enough, and honestly, needed something like a Stargate re-skin to get me invested in the system. I'm reading up on the beta materials, I'm stoked to help playtest the system, and get some stories going, but I'm currently a recluse to society(I hope most are, for COVID safety). to that end, I am a fan of Play by the Post, or PbP games, and have taken a liking to Discord. this is my introduction to myself, as well as a temperature check for a PbP Discord game. Depending on interest, I'm either cool with running a contained playtest, or participating in the Living Series.

  25. Excellent! Very happy to hear! So far I'm absolutely loving everything you guys have put out.
  26. We've slowed down on the updates, but not the development. We'll be releasing some updated content throughout the Kickstarter. Fear not! There will be Goa'uld and other race templates.
