Jerry Mapes

There was some very sad news about JR Mapes, (a contributor to the Zhodani Base). 😥

At his traveller blog You can find his cleaned up Spinward Marches data and some other goodies.

His posts at the Zhodani Base:

For his big contribution to the traveller community, the planet at position 1234 in Foreven Sector is now called Mapes. I selected this planet since it is a peaceful place. When we visit it, we will think of him. New version of Harem Subsector below.

Harem Subsector

  1. Thank you for this. We over in the OD&D community have been talking about doing something to Jerry’s memory (he had a big effect and presence with us, too) – but frankly, Traveller was his favorite game. A monument within Traveller is what I think he would have thought the most cool.

  2. Just want to echo what Matt has said. This is a wonderful way to remember him. I’m sure he’d love being in/near the Harem sector as well. 🙂

  3. It’s always a blow when we lose a member of the community. We’re all ageing, and we’ve seen founding fathers like Gary Gygax and pass away, but it’s doubly sad when ‘one of ours’ leaves us at such an untimely age. I’ll make sure to visit Mapes when I next pass through Foreven Sector – red zone or no … 😉
