How about a box set that does:We have been thinking about super-detailing a major starport, perhaps as a box set...
A detailed star town too!How about a box set that does:
Super detailing a major starport A Class (say Flammarion: Navy Base, Scout Base tie in to Marches Adventure)
Detailing a decent starport B Class (say Asteltine)
Detailing a starport C Class (say Walston as a tie in with Marches adventure)
Detailing a starport D Class (say Bowman)
Detailing a starport E Class (say 567-908 as a tie in with Marches adventure)
just a thought
The answer is "yes". You seem to be coming from a Campbellian point of view, wanting to stick to stories that are only possible in the genre. As counter guidance, I offer a lot of literary SF. Jack Vance, Andre Norton, Jack Chalker, Alan Dean Foster, Keith Laumer, Anne McCaffery, and many others.'Why use the Traveller ruleset to play what is a fantasy campaign'. Sure, you could 100% do this, but you're not really playing Traveller any longer, unless you really finesse it. The players are Scouts, crashed on a primitive, Red zone world, and trying to survive while looking for a way to signal for rescue.
So the question is - are you actually playing Traveller, or just using the Traveller rules in another genre?
That was my idea with it.Tartakover (Katanga), from the Spinward Extents book comes to mind. It's only TL11, but has a very Mos Eisely feel. The sort of place you could probably buy anything, and meet patrons from any race.
Would be nice to have some scenarios in the Theev system in the Sindal subsector. Especially as Sindal is in the Core Rulebook.That was my idea with it.
Was thinking of doing an adventure series based out of Tartakover, but that's way down on the list of things I haven't gotten done (sorry).
Not in the new Core edition... but Theev has pretty good detail in Pirates of Drinax and in (less detail ironically) the The Theev Cluster pdf. There are some Theev adventure seeds in PoD. Theev always struck me as a bit of a give-me world (except for the Widows thing) - high tech no restrictions, back shops with battledress and fusions guns, maybe even a nuke or two sort of place where a Referee has to put extra care into preventing Travellers from loading up on a cornucopia of goodies. Well, unless that's what you want (or need) for the campaign.Would be nice to have some scenarios in the Theev system in the Sindal subsector. Especially as Sindal is in the Core Rulebook.
The closest is Theev, in the Trojan Reach.I spent years running AD&D2e games in the Free City of Greyhawk. I read Fritz Leiber's Lanlhmar books. I am currently reading "Zobeck: Clockwork City", recently purchased, looking for inspiration to run Traveller adventures.
Are there any Traveller equivalents of these cities and their neighbouring polities?
