Antares Administration Citizen

This is a repeat of my post from the Marine Traditions thread. Let's move the discussion here.

Actually, last Thursday, I drafted a submission proposal to Hunter, including an outline for a series called "Armed Forces of the Gateway". Some proposed volumes were:
a. The Imperial Marines,
b. The Imperial Interstellar Scout Service,
c. The Imperial Navy, etc.
d. Various major regional forces.

You get the idea. Think of something like the Osprey reference series; a sort of generic Traveller reference to pull together the canon in a single volume, and flesh out the holes.

I thought I should start with a submission to the powers-that-be. After all, if we want this sanctioned for publication, we may as well have blessing from the outset.

Anyway, half way through prepping the submission, a virus crashed my Windows 2K, and I wasn't able to recover the outline. I've since rebuilt my harddrive, and I'm in the middle of doing the submission again.

In general, each volume would have the following content (actual detail and sequence to be confirmed, and suggest size of section included):

a. Introduction (1 page)
b. History of the Service/Force (4 pages)
c. BASIC Equipment (6 pages)
d. TO&Es for small units (up to squadron, or battalion) (4-6 pages)
e. Intro Doctrine/Tactical Manual? (4-6 pages)
e. Campaign/Mission/Ticket Suggestions (not like "Linkworlds Cluster", but rather some basic guidelines and plot suggestions for GMs)(2 pages)
e. Famous/infamous characters (possible NPCs)(4-6 pages)
f. General service NPCs (2-4 pages)

This is probably too much, and I'd like to keep it under 40 pages. After all there would be a whole series to write, and we don't even have the go-ahead yet!

While I'm putting this together in a new submission, I'd appreciate any feedback.
