Greetings, all:

(Please re-locate this post if it should go elsewhere...)

Has QLI considered, or would QLI consider publishing printed maps for the Official Traveller Universe? I'm thinking:
</font>
  • Gateway</font>
  • The Whole Imperium</font>
  • The Spinward Marches</font>
  • ...you get the idea...</font>
I'm dreaming of something tabloid-sized (B5 in metric, I believe); i.e., the same as four 8.5x11" sheets. If this were the Gateway Domain, that'd be one Letter-sized page per sector.

Or better yet: four tabloid-sized sheets, one per sector, which one could stick together to make a truly giant map...

Motivation: didn't the old CT Deluxe Traveller boxed set, and the MT boxed set (and maybe also the TNE boxed set) all come with printed maps? I seem to recall that one boxed set got you The Spinward Marches, while another gave you the whole Imperium (with less detail, of course). But still, it was big and beautiful!

You see, the room in my house where all my gaming stuff lives has on one wall the tabloid-sized map of my own fantasy world, hand-drawn by me in the late 80s. And it has a blank space for Gateway...

And just think of how cool it would be for showing to prospective players -- and to existing ones.

Question for the Board: should it be black background? Or white (or light gray, or...)?

Other questions:
</font>
  • Just worlds?</font>
  • Political boundaries?</font>
  • X-Boat Routes?</font>
  • ...</font>
Print on both sides, and put additional stuff on the back?
</font>
  • different historical periods</font>
  • Whole galaxy -&gt; our arm -&gt; whole Imperium -&gt; Gateway...</font>
  • other sectors (at a smaller scale?)</font>
So many options...

Thanks all,
Dan
