Default Foreven = Dune

The presents thread got me to thinking...how much indeed of Traveller (and Fading Suns which I consider to be alternate Traveller) is related to Dune. I was wondering if it was possible to create an entire Sector to set up the battleground for Duneworld. Therefore, have not one planet with precious resources but entire sector that could be up for grabs. Could one convert Foreven into Dune.

Well, first the sector is spilt between rival powers...check. Perhaps, the sector is not so much Cold War between Imperium and Zhodani fighting proxy wars but rather fighting wars of influence with their client states really quite independent. Sure, both the Zhodani and Imperium have holdings in the Sector but only to keep an eye on the other.

One could create a Sector wide council that would meet to arbitrate between the Sector's major powers maybe call it the Landsaarat...check.

One world that could trigger the conflict could have the preserved remains of Irem...a fully preserved Ancient City of unimaginable wealth buried under the sands an insignificant moon nestled in space between all the major powers. However, once the artifacts leave the world, they mysteriously cease to work. Or maybe they just have to decend to the lower levels...

The players play the role of Artredes who now must administer the world in the name of the Landsaarat whilst all the major powers.

As Irem's power grows from a coup by a local faction of the Ive Gnar, the ferment to spread the Revolution also grows to infect other worlds.

Ok, I have babbled enough...what do others think?
