Has anyone ever shown Marc what Dave Nilsen said his intended effects of the Empress Wave would have been?

I have the entire thread interview saved to a world file and can post the relevant bits.

+1. It would be interesting to see.

Of course at this point, I'd be perfectly happy to have the timeline scroll forward to the 1900 era, but since the .09 errata is still a work in progress, I'm not going to forego breathing until then.

I'm not sure of the legality of posting my word document, until clarification here is a link to the original interview thread:

http://www.travellerrpg.com/CotI/Dis...sk+dave&page=3

There are some script issues due to board changes, but it is readable.

You may post it to the files area on the board.

Thanks Mike, that's an interesting read. I'm keen to see your notes now.

Stiatlchepr
Ziafrplians
Spinward Marches
Karleaya
Hlakoi
Dark Nebula
Solomani Rim
Daibei
Ilelish [centered on Suerrat]
Core
Vland
Meshan (probably half Human Half Vargr)
Ley

and:

Three? in K'kree territory
Two? in Hiver Territory
That list has only one Vargr sector, which is shared with Humaniti. One sector. So little faith in a Major Race. Spinward Marches doesn't count and Gvurrdon was not listed. Tsk.

"I find your lack of faith disturbing."

But, to indulge this blasphemy a little, I combed through 1105 Meshan Sector. There were three potential Strong Worlds that could conceivably survived both of the stated calamities. Of those, only Kakror (Meshan 1437) in my mind has the attributes of a Strong World.

Kakror is smack-dab in the middle of Urzaeng-Ovaghoun Vargr overlap turf.

Are we sure that Meshan is the sector of choice for the only Vargr sector to survive? Again we see humanocentric development in M1900.

Looking deeper, I can point out more than a handful of potential Strong Worlds that can survive both calamities whether they arrived A then B, B then A, or A&B together in the same 30-year window.

IMTU, I don't believe that Meshan, Vargr sharing with Humaniti (remnant Vilani, Julians, Gashikans, non-aligned or other), will be the only pastoral pocket empire out there to feature the lupine Major Race. Each of the Vargr sub-species of the Major Race will find Strong World havens. One need only look, deselect the weak worlds, pull the trigger on worlds that will Die Back (Di) and then decide How that group will survive the calamities.

Perhaps Meshan Sector was arbitrarily chosen as it is central to more than a few sub-species of Humaniti so as to keep racial diversity in the game.
To that, I can name a Vargr Enclaves sector that has just as much racial diversity as Meshan.

The Galaxiad Users of M1900 are shaking their furry heads at the silly humans and laughing like hyenas.
