Your Faraway Sector
 
Faraway Sector. Regions of space with interstellar travel, but no contact with the Charted Space around the Imperium. Referees can establish their home-brewed interstellar colonies/empires at locations relative to Charted Space, for example for shared indexing purposes on Traveller websites.


Many of us created subsectors, and even sectors, before we knew about the Imperium. Perhaps some of us created them before there was an official Imperium.

Faraway Sector is a concept for locating those places in the OTU, so that others may visit them in their games.

Do you have a "Faraway Sector"? What is it like? Do you know where it is, relative to the Imperium?

I'm happy to host such Faraway sectors on TravellerMap.com in various random places about the galaxy. Email me if interested.

And if you want to do writeups of races or cultures or technology or et cetera that occurs there, I've got a magazine to print them in...

In a lot of cases, I assume that any Faraway Sector I sketch out is located somewhere at "right angles" to the Universe of Charted Space, somewhere that you MIGHT find if you roll a 'destroyed' mishap on your Hop/Skip/Jump, and the referee fiats appropriately, since we don't know what happens to those ships that go into jump, but don't come out...

I do have a "faraway sector" that is based on a bunch of maps. I have only rudiments of an idea and can't find a couple of the subsectors...

Would the Faraway area include those sector to the Rimward of Terra?

Sure. The requirement, as far as I can tell, is that it's far enough away from "Charted Space" so that the two are effectively independent.

So, an H. Beam Piper sector and an Andre Norton sector would not pose problems then.

The Orion OB1 Association region I've been developing the past few years sounds like it could fit the bill, as interaction between it and Charted Space is effectively minimal. Some of the materials for that setting are already on the Internet, at both the Traveller Wiki and my personal site, Explorerbase.

My "Faraway Sector" is linked in my .sig and is on the wiki. I named the sector Varan . One supplement named it Mikhail, but gave no other info.

It has been uploaded to TravMap (and THANK YOU for that) though the current version is somewhat out-of-date. It is a work in progress, and meatspace is interfering with my play time.

I am SLOWLY updating the wiki info, and have several posts on CoTI that are based on questions/thoughts/idea from my campaign.

Progress is somewhat hindered by (possible) errata updates, work, school, and family - not necessarily in that order.

Someday I'll get there...lol.
