comment Where does the D&D concept of a dwarf come from?
Zwerg are thematically more like the D&D Gnomes than the D&D Dwarves.

comment Where can I get Traveller 5 and when?
The information I have is limited, even as an insider, and is that Marc's revising a few areas for clarity, prior to producing the T5 Player's Book. Most notably combat. There is a lot of errata. There are ongoing discussions at TravellerRPG.com. (which is the site I run for Marc.)

Yeah, it's also true that a second burst will likely kill anyone not in armor. But note also: Armor & Toughness applies to EACH hit of an autofire burst, so good armor can render that autopistol's hit far less damaging. But that's grounds for a revision.

I've had RT characters under the RT rules survive full auto bursts. Bad rolls on the GM's part. And you're not guaranteed to kill until well below 0 W remaining. At least it's not as bad as WFRP2, where wounds past capacity reset every hit...
