Welcome to the Nir Admegulasha Gaburielak (or 'NAG') — Gabriel's Repository of Things!
Who Are You?Just some guy who really likes the OTU and who has a rather Bwap-like tendency to catalogue things.
What is This Place?This post
What Do You Have to Offer?Why, am I glad you asked! There are currently three things in this post: The Traveller Timeline, Traveller: Sophonts of Charted Space, and the work-in-progress The Imperial Census, 1105.
Traveller Timeline:Traveller Timeline is, essentially, a lesser version and humble spiritual successor to Don McKinney's incomparable Traveller Integrated Timeline, but sourced exclusively from Mongoose Traveller 2nd Edition. It is a comprehensive timeline of the OTU spanning from the Ancients Era up to the present day (1105 Imperial). Each entry in the timeline is marked with its source publication and page within said publication, using an extensive and comprehensive citation system (see the Appendix).
All entries have been added 'as-is'; I have made no efforts whatsoever to correct inconsistencies in dates except where an error was patently obvious, such as a missing negative sign for a given year when talking about events occurring before the founding of the Third Imperium. All such instances have been duly marked as such.
The Traveller Timeline can be found [here] as a 'living document' google doc.
Traveller: Sophonts of Charted Space:Traveller: Sophonts of Charted Space is a comprehensive catalogue of every single sophont species with a known homeworld in Charted Space. It was created by sifting through the files of all Official and In Review Sectors of the Traveller 5 Second Survey, which can be accessed through the irreplaceable TravellerMap. These Sectors have already been revisited (or undergoing it) and approved by the T5SS working group, overseen by Marc W. Miller himself, and therefore are as close to 'canon' as anything in a massive corpus of work such as Traveller can get.
An important caveat should be noted about the sophont listing in this document, however; it includes only sophonts whose homeworlds are present in the aforementioned sectors. Even if a sophont has appeared in a canonical work before, if its homeworld isn't within the official/in review sectors or it is otherwise unknown, they have not been included. This is mainly due to technical reasons of what is represented in the T5SS data, and how I'm able to process said data with python scripts.
Traveller: Sophonts of Charted Space can be found [here], as a 'living document' google doc.
The Imperial Census, 1105:The Imperial Census, 1105 is a deep-dive into the statistics of the Third Imperium as a whole; how many systems it controls, the distribution of Technology Levels and Government Types, landed Nobility Titles, among others. Its main feature however is a detailed breakdown of the Demographics of the Third Imperium, by individual Non-Human Species and Humaniti subspecies. In the document a link can be found at the end to the data in spreadsheet format for ease of reading.
This particular document is currently incomplete; whilst the Demographics section is essentially done, there is still work to be done pertaining the different statistics provided in the doc. Work is also being done on the presentation front to increase legibility. Suggestions and ideas for inclusion in the document are very much welcome.
The Imperial Census, 1105 can be found [here], and should be regarded as an incomplete, work-in-progress manuscript.
