Balinsha could be dropped in anywhere.

And Fritz88? The whole thing is Jackson LAX Fremickeymantle, if that makes it clearer.

Thanks, 2-4601. (And, I found that Anunaki basically translates to "Heaven & Earth". Heh.)
Edited to give proper credit

Jame, whence comes Balinsha? Is it a sector or subsector name? Ooh, it would probably work as one of those non-tagged subsectors! (And, I will have to figure out where to use the Fremickeymantle bit. It is entirely too good to pass up. )

That was Employee, not me.

And Piper's right - Vilani's spelling system is based on Sumerian.

And of course you will need a desert world at a strategic choke point named "Thermopale"

P.S. I have parked Fritz's large map here:
http://www.scottmartin.ca/Traveller_...hart_hires.jpg
so that he doesn't need to have his bandwidth chewed up (I pay for 30 GB a month)

Fritz, if you'd like stuff hosted drop me a PM, if you want me to pull the image, drop me a PM or respond to this forum and I'll remove it.

Scott, thanks. I appreciate the help. [img]smile.gif[/img] I think it will work out on my server, as you can see the small group of folks working here. I think my limitation is a "per 4 hours" thing, anyway.

And, yes, I think I have a few candidate worlds that meet your criteria.

I forget what "Balinsha" originally was, but it's something I changed to be unrecognizable.

I assume that you are looking for a setting with a complete absence of the 3I.

If this is the case, I have a polity that you may be interested in "transplanting" into this ATU, but the boundary areas would be a bit problematic.

I also think that some of your "Mains" should have more than one polity associated with them, especially the ones with more than 100 systems in them. I'd be tempted to do polities by random world generation (which you could automate) and then any group of worlds that:
1) was on the same J-1 "main"
2) had more than 1 hi-pop world within 3 or 4 parsecs (tiral and eror here to get the right spacing)
3) Had at least one "Rich" "Poor" or "Ag" planet within a 3-4 parsec radius

this would "seed" the starting capitals and meant that you might have pocket empires in 3-4 world clusters, but are more likely to have a polity in the larger "mains", while the HUGE mains are likely to have multiple polities.

Scott, that's how things would have been 500 years ago. But, the numerous polities in the large mains got subsumed into the overall star nation.

Everyone is in a dark age (no interstellar contact - think Long Night), and J1 comes back unevenly across those worlds. So, the polities grow and have conflict, and merge. The clusters just off the big mains may or may not have been subsumed by the monster polities when J2 is re-discovered.

In looking at the systems I got previously (via my LBB6 Excel spreadsheet - 2d draft), I had a lot of TL7-9 systems. (I also had a few TL0! ) So, anybody with J2 is somewhat dominant - J3 is an empire builder!

For the Greek subsectors, how about using names of the characters of old Greek legends, or of the places where these legends take place?

People (I´ll skip the obvious ones such as Heracles):
- Bellerophon
- Penthesilea
- Alcmeon
- Iphigenia
- Diomedes
- Deucalion
- Dedalos
- Augias

Places:
- Erymanthea
