Default The Andromeda Sector

this setting is concurrent with the OTU, but it takes place in the Andromeda Galaxy in a place called originally enough called the Andromeda Sector, the adjacent sectors are as of yet unnamed.

The races in this sector are different from the standard Traveller fare.
There are native humans that were brought here by the Ancients over 100,000 years ago, they are stone age tribes until contacted by settlers from the Imperium.

To summarize the intelligent major alien races found in the Andromeda Sector:
Aleerin
Type: Humanoid (aleerin)
Size: Medium (between 1 and 2 meters tall)
Characteristic Modifiers: Endurance +1, Intelligence -1, Education +1, Social Standing -1

Dralasite
Type: Aberration (amorphous blob that extrudes limbs as needed)
Size: Medium (takes up the same volume as a human, but can flatten itself and elongate as needed.
Characteristic Modifiers: Dexterity -1, Endurance +1 (Dralasites are resilient but awkward)

Fraal
Type: Humanoid (fraal)
Size: Small (stands about 1 meter tall)
Characteristic Modifiers: Strength -2, Endurance -2, Intelligence +2, Education +2, Social Standing +2 (Fraal are frail and weak, but their mental abilities far surpass most other species.)
Fraal have psionic abilities that include telepathy.

Sesheyan
Type: Monstrous Humanoid
Size: Medium (between 1 and 2 meters tall)
Characteristic Modifiers: Dexterity +1, Social Standing -1
Sesheyans are agile but lack social grace. Sesheyans possess wings on their back and are capable of flying in an atmosphere 5 or greater at twice their ground movement rate.

T'sa
Type: Humanoid (reptilian, T'sa)
Size: Small (stands about 1 meter tall)
Characteristic Modifiers: Strength -1, Dexterity +1, Intelligence -1, Social Standing +1.

Vrusk
Type: Humanoid (insecticide, Vrusk)
Size: Large (stands between 2 to 3 meters tall)
Characteristic Modifiers: Strength -1, Intelligence +1, Education +1. Vrusk evolved on a low gravity world, about Size 4 and have low gravity adaption.

Weren
Type: Giant Humanoid
Size: Large (stands about 3 meters tall)
Characteristic Modifiers: Strength +2, Dexterity -1. Weren't are incredibly strong but lack agility.

Neanderthal
Type: Humanoid (human, neanderthal)
Size: Medium between 1 and 1.5 meters tall, stocky build and stronger than average human.
Characteristic Modifiers: Strength +1, Intelligence +1, Social Standing -2. Neanderthals are strong, slightly shorter than average humans, and are awkward socially.

The time the campaign begins is at the time of the New Era setting. None of the Virus managed to cross over to the Andromeda Galaxy the last few ships arriving from Charted Space brought details of wholesale destruction and trillions of lives lost and then no more starships came.

here is a list of the main worlds of Subsector 11 of the Andromeda Sector. The native humans on the planet Gaia are of two types: Cromagnons and Neanderthals, the Cromagnons are statistically identical to modern humans, they were originally contacted by Colonists when they were at tech level 0, but have advanced through education and training. Also the native races if this sector did not possess jump drive technology until colonists from Charted Space brought it with them. There is work ongoing on construction of a return jumpgate, but it is a massive project in the Gaia-Helios system and it is not completed yet.

I decided to set the start date of the campaign on June 29, 1130 - the year the Virus hit. The Jumpgate colonization of the Andromeda Sector began in 1104 so it has been ongoing for 26 years, and then the Virus on the other end either shut down or destroyed the Jumpgate, all people in the Andromeda sector know is that new colonists stopped arriving, previous ships had a schedule for new arriving ships but they just didn't show up, what was known is that there was a Civil War going on in the Third Imperium, the last few ships were refugees from that war, and then nothing. Nobody knows what happened. There is a partially constructed return jumpgate, but nobody really knows what happened to the Jumpgate in the Terra system.

The second civil war has advanced the tech level to 16, artificial intelligence programs have become available as have the positronic brains to run them. AI has reached parity with human intelligence. Some of the starships that have crossed over the Andromeda before the final collapse of the Third Imperium were TL16 starships, some run by AI computers. AI robots of a certain type become a player character race. The ability to manufacture them locally is somewhat limited. Most of the recent immigrants are just glad to have escaped the Hard Times and live in relative peace.

At the time of the destruction of the Jumpgate the Terran System was back under the control of the Solomani Confederation.

Finally I have a chart of the subsector 11 showing mainworlds with their stars in 3 dimensions, they have temporary names until I can find permanent names for them.
Found at https://www.deviantart.com/tomkalbfu...Gaia-871279682 for greater detail.

I'm looking for a rather specfic world to set a scenario, as I want to re-introduce some old gaming friends to Traveller (either a MT variant or the Mongoose edition), maybe Andromeda has the type of planet I'm looking for.

Well take a look, the stats are listed above, I rolled them all up randomly.

Pick a subsector and roll your own, the subsector I detailed is Subsector 11, the others are arranged this way.
