WiFi Adapter Test: 6 adapters with Kali

I have several WiFi adapters laying around and I figured it might be helpful to document the capabilities of each.

I am using a Raspberry Pi 3 with a fresh image of Kali Rolling 2017.3 (with Nexmon drivers). The test AP I am using is in my living room (I’m down the hall in the office…)

The adapters tested and the chipsets used are:

Mongoose Traveller Cheat Sheets

MT - Task Cheat SheetI’ve been getting into the roleplaying game, Traveller and created some task cheat sheets. I saved them as PDFs for easy printing.

The combined one is color coded (Blue = 1st ed., Red = 2nd ed.)

I have also made cheat sheets for the combat systems.

Cowboy and Medieval Drifters in Mongoose Traveller

I recently purchased the Cowboys vs. Xenomorphs adventure for Mongoose Traveller and it’s a fun setting. So fun that I wanted more Period careers available to ‘flesh out’ the campaign.
I used the Drifter career as a template and created four Cowboy era careers (Cowboy Drifter, Cowboy Era Barbarian,  Cowboy Era Sailor/Pirate, Cowboy Era Charlaton.)
I also added Medieval Adventurer and Medieval Soldier careers that I have used in the past to finish out the Drifters from Other Eras career sheet.

My old maps were bent so I had to make new maps.

Snapshot, the game of close combat (aboard Starships) by Game Designers Workshop was originally released in 1979. Although it was a stand-alone game, it used an expanded turn and combat system based on the original Classic Traveller RPG.

We used to use Snapshot to resolve combat for the roll playing game, Traveller. Recently, I pulled out my old copy, printed the original deck plans and played the default scenarios with a friend (who has never played).

The rules are easy enough to grasp and the gameplay is generally fast-paced (the ships are not huge and it is a combat game.)

If you happen to still have the game, pull it out and give it a try with some modern gamers. It’s still an entertaining way to spend a game night. Sadly, I no longer have my space themed miniatures that worked well with the grid size (15mm, I believe.)
