I'm glad you like it, I didn't want to step on anyone's toes, but it seemed like a good backstory, too good to leave dormant.

I have that map as well, it's from solstation, iirc. I should make something like that, just to note that some of those planets are far off from each other, due to flattening of the 3D sphere to 2D. In the player map I gave, the map from Craig: http://dragonersdomain.com/forum/viewto ... f=69&t=480 The red circles as navy bases will be the most dangerous, yellow as scout bases, secondary hazard, green, relatively safe. One thing about the war is that the Sol system alone has almost half of the total population of the Human Continuum, and while we could adventure there, it would be more urban cyberpunk than lasers and spacecraft on the frontier. In the upper right hand quadrant of that map are the Vegans, and in the south are the Delta Pavonians; the Vegans are friendly to people, the Pavonians not so much. From each and every system, there can be factions, space is big.

Those were some pretty incredible set of rolls.

Just found this in the basement of a bookstore here:

Surprisingly ( for a Traveller Grognard ) I never read the Dumarest books, so that's a new one for me.

I couldn't not buy that after seeing it. I'm not very grognardy for as old as I am. I have read some Dumarest, they are kind of cheesy. I also picked up Asher's Engineer, and Drake's Igniting the Reaches.

I was listening to an old episode of the Grognard Files podcast ( https://thegrognardfiles.com/ ) at work and there was a passing comment "in Traveller everybody ends up as a space pirate". It isn't always true, but here we are...

It's because being a space pirate is fun, the direct opposite of our lives in general. :mrgreen:
