Origo Point Subsector

One of the more popular pages at the Zhodani Base is the Random Subsector Generator. With the help of the generator, some text editing and the post function at Traveller Maps I created this subsector.
Origo Point SubsectorI was inspired by Point Central from the Valérian Comic, Ambassador of the Shadows (and others). I thought it was an interesting idea with a place where different cultures could meet. Babylon-5 is a similar place. I was also inspired by the planet Rubanis from the Valérian comic Les Spectres d’Inverloch (and others). It was because of Rubanis that I decided to make Origo Point a planet.

New to Traveller

Hello, my gaming group and I have been looking for something different from the fantasy genre. I am currently re-reading the Honor Harrington Series and thought I’d like to run a Sci Fi game, and while in a game store I stumbled upon the Far Future Enterprises’ version of Classic Traveller and thought that would be something different. Most of us have experienced Traveller before, but probably not for nearly 20 years.

I am creating a campaign in my own universe for a few reasons. My original idea was to have something similar to Babylon 5, in the fact that the planet the players will be based on is where the Major races have all come together, thus allowing players to have access to playing aliens as well as humans. This I feel will create many story lines for me.

I am also contemplating revamping the psionic rules to allow players access to abilites I felt were missing.

As for aliens themselves I have thought about creating my own, since I don’t want players playing races that are ‘too’ alien, making them hard to play, as I’ve seen happen in games I’ve been involved in, in the past. I have thought of making anthropomorphic-type aliens so my players can better relate to their characters.

I found this website and have really valued it’s usefullness and wanted to thank-you. Since I am new to running Traveller, I was wondering if anyone could give me any useful advice, or if any of my ideas above will not work well. I am in the beginning stages of creating my campaign so the above is easily changeable.

thank-you,
