  • Introduction


    The Gimmerdrift Reaches is copyright 1981 by Judges Guild.
    The sector was written by Dave Sering and Steve Crow, with artwork by Ken
    Simpson and Ed Perry. Bob Bledsaw ( gave permission
    for this sector to be transcribed into Galactic (as well as other
    Traveller-related freeware). The transcription was done by Andrew
    Moffatt-Vallance ( in 1997.


    Introduction to the Glimmerdrift Reaches
    The Glimmerdrift Reaches sector was developed by Judges Guild in 1981.
    It was declared invalid by GDW in 1984.
    Since the sector was produced before it became common practice to give
    population multipliers, number of planetoid belts, or number of gas giants in
    sector data, these numbers have been left as 0, except with gas giants where 0
    indicates the absence of any and 1 indicates the presence of an indeterminate
    number. There were also a few subsectors where it was possible to have a
    reasonable guess at population multipliers. These have also been included.
    Whilst transcribing the data I have tried to preserve as much of the feel of
    the original product as possible. Please bear in mind that this sector was
    published in the early eighties, and as such is far 'rougher' than the sectors
    which are published today. In transcribing the data, I found many examples
    where the planetary data conflicted with the accompaning text. I have made no
    attempt to correct these conflicts.

    Update (17-July-97): Added random population multipliers (where popmult
    originally equaled 0) on recommendation from one of the users. Worlds with
    pop=0, law=0, and gov=0 got to keep their original popmult=0.   -jimv
