Mine, pretty standard, except starships have a 10 LY range, and there are many more worlds that have basic colonies. Texas (of course) has a total of five colonies (the standard ones in the book, and two new ones- New Texas (Capella A), and Mesa Verde (Chi 1 Orionis). The Texas Space Navy is larger, but still not a major power like the US, France, UK (A super-power), Germany, Japan, and China. The Big Three are the US, UK and China. Japan and Germany are about to make it the Big Five, rsn. The "second tier" powers are: Brazil, Argentina, Texas, Mexico, Ukraine, Russia, India, Canada, and The Scandanavian Union.

The Kafer exist, but are not a real issue in the campaign since it is mainly on the Chinese Arm area of space. There are lots of starships, I mean lots of starships. The new ones are owned by nations, and mega corps, the older ones by smaller corps, and the really old ones by private people.

Colonization and exploration are common, with Terrans exploding out into space. There are six known Alien races, and others are just "around the corner" so to speak. There are several colonies which have broken away, and are independent.

Space industry, and space facilities are common around the more industrialized planets.

Thanks to Bryn Monnery for his excellent Etrainger site. Thats a wonderful 2300 resource.

The game system itself for combat and characters is Cyberpunk 2020.

mine's pretty much canon apart from pentapod bio-armoured vehicles, Sung mercenaries on the front line(as an excuse to learn from the kafers if not the humans) and the Vilani and Vegans along the Bayern route.....wait a minute! thats not canon at all! ....damn...

In mine France is really a second rate power, with the UK being the "Big Dog", after all Britannia rules the waves... :D The smaller powers usually combine to keep the bigger ones honest.

Mine is pretty normal. I take some stuff from the old traveller books, like some of the really weird aliens and planetary systems. With such a large universe it is actually rare that my players get off of Aurore, they like the war (most of them are soldiers at the moment). The majority of our time is spent involved with the war as we are actually only up to 2306. I have been trying to work on a compilation of all of the stuff I have created for the Tanstaafl colony and get it into a file. If anyone has any info that they have created for Aurore, or the Tanstaafl colony specificly I would love to get a copy to include in my files.

Now that is totally the way it should be.

:)

Although I'd go for having Germany involved in a naval arms race with Britain, and everyone squaring up for some kind of gereral system war -

Might need to have everyone go all Buck Rodgers XXVc to do that (Americans on Mars, UK on the moon, Germans on Venus kinda thing) so you can get in a general war without necesscerily turning everywhere to mush.

Well I've moved Texas to 3rd tier power, like The Netherlands pre WWII. The big arms race is the UK and US vs Japan. Manchuria is biding its time so it can be the big dog in the pond.

Mine is a standard one, the starships have a 8ly range, this open a third arm on SO25300.5+165258, a direct route to the Latin ARM [img]smile.gif[/img]

Later

Hi JC!

But keep in mind that the Brazilians will also be taking advantage of that route, and Procyon lies between Earth and the Mexican/Argentine colonies ...

U rigth Randy, Epsilon Eridani is the key to control the Arm
