(System Map to follow)


1. All Game Mechanics are "invisible" to the In Character Thread. Players Declare Actions and the Referee determines and relates all results. There Will be an Out of character thread for Rules Discussion. Brief Out of Character Questions or statements can be made in the In Character Thread, provided that they are proceeded by the "OOC" Tag, for example,
OOC: Is the Door Locked?

2. The Person Speaking or taking Action must start a post with the Character's Name in the Game.

Bob (taking microphone from pocket)
"I am talking to you now"

3. Speech will be in "quotes"

4. Description of Action will be unquoted.

5. Communications will be [Bracketed]

I am open to anything, as long as it is fun and simple.

8. Player Applicants should Email with character concept. There are 8 potential PC slots available.

9. Starship Combat will use my streamlined 3d system, which will be posted.

10. The Game will Begin on October 30, 2005


I am going to use: (in terms of books)

d20 Modern
d20 Past
d20 Future
The Traveller's Handbook
All Traveller's Aides (by and large)
All other books are considered as baselines/reference materials.
The ones I am using are:
All the CT Books
All the GT Books
All the MT Books
All the TNE Books

A note about "Canon".:
I consider the Traveller Universe so large that almost anything is possible, so we can take most of Traveller History as presented. This game will simply "be" and is not intended to be a work of "Canon". I as the Referee will reserve the right to modify any aspect of established Traveller Background as I see fit, and as it suits the game.

As to myself as a Referee:

I endeavor to be as impartial as I can, but I admit to having a strong fondness for Players that respond often, clearly, and rapidly. I hope that this game will move swiftly, and I will say at the outset that it is for those that are willing to commit to a game that will last Years given the right circumstances. Players can come and Go as they wish, of course. It is for Players that check email every day.

I am not a "killer" Referee, nor am I interested in Power-Gaming. This Game will provide state-of the-art Equipment to the players at the outset, to throw the "I am working my way up to getting a FGMP-15" school of thought on its ear.


on this game, I am inspired by films like Blade Runner, Dagon, Silence of the Lambs, Scanners, They Live, Dune, 1984, Logan's Run, THX-1138, I Claudius, From Hell, Angel Heart, the serpent and the Rainbow, Altered States, Demon Seed, Minority Report, the Duelists,
The Exorcist, Brazil, Brave New World, Alphaville

and books and comics like:
Metabarons, Judge Dredd, V for Vendetta, Watchmen
Count Tirem (Spin 2233 C7B5975B)
Baron Bendor (Spin 2336 A756656C)
Baron Sidur Haski (Gush 1334 B786354C)
