So update version 1.1

Lets see the basics first... Cronor Subsector: thinking of renaming this the Chronos sector Inabitable worlds: Cantrel: TL up to 9, still low population due to the gate detonation making travel to it either very long or precarious if from Thengo. Thengo: TL up to A, population up to 7 due to refugee...

Hmm...

In Babylon V as I recall the primary component for their version of this was that for one life to be extended another life would have to be sacrificed as part of the formulae. Of course there's also nanotech where nanomachines are injected and whilst the patient is left in a coma under suitable supe...

Serenity meets Traveller

Been reading up on this courtesy of enworld. Still looking to figure out some details. Now the sword worlds being home to a largely mercenary space viking style culture. The worlds destroyed were used as bases for the Empire seeking to control just how much damage these roving mercenaries could infl...

No using subsectors as solar systems...

Its a public forum - feel free... As to using subsector maps as solar systems - that doesn't really hold the suspenders of disbelief up very well at all. True, okay then Fulacin I believe in the Rhylanor subsector has a tainted atmsophere, type a starport and a very high tech level. So a regular st...

Yep, same content, smaller size. :)
Other than portability how are they?

Mind if i discuss details regarding the game I was planning on running? Mostly to do with tinkering with whats been noted in the spinward marches as a means of fine tuning what I was planning? One of which was having each subsector map be an actual solar system so rather than go all out to redesign ...

Been wondering about system generation. So the spinward marches book lists the various worlds in each subsector but not how many planets, gas giants and so on present and got thinking just how much detail do I need to go into to get this up and running? As it stands I was thinking that the opening a...

Well, I could settle for the one season 1980s show as well. And yes, the SciFi "look and feel" for the earthers was quite nice. Liked the fighters as well. I fear that the show will be difficult to translate into a game since it relies a lot on the interaction between Buck and Wilma and those often...

Interesting ideas...

The way I was thinking of going is that when humanity first found the hypernet gates they had spread out until they found the gate that led to the Spinward Marches. They used it to spread even further but found signs that there had been life on this side of the gate but it had inexplicably ended sev...

Expanded thoughts

My reasoning on keeping the imperium wass to simply explain there had been a number of wars waged since humanity left earth. One shut down the gate that linked the spinward marches to those across the great rift and earth. The rift would be otherwise untraversible without the gates, but rather than ...

Odd thoughts

Terrific idea, Hopeless, but why set this campaign in the Spinward Marches? I would be inclined to create an entirely new sub-sector or two, tailoring the planets to what sorts would best fit in, and off you go (probably best to assign values for atmos, pop, law level etc rather than relying on ran...

I'd tweak the idea into the hypernet gates simply mysteriously stopping working all at once, and nobody having been able to figure out why. That way, if you ever want to use them as a specific plot point, they're still out there. Been reading the Lost Fleet and wondered what would happen if they we...

Traveller Alternate Spinward Marches Campaign Idea Query

Been thinking about running a campaign but a little different. Only really have the pocket handbook and the spinward marches book and thought this might make an interesting campaign but need to fine tune it slightly. Keeping it humancentric I simply explain that humanity discovered the means to trav...
