Default Least Played in Subsector in the SM

What do you think is the least used/played in subsector in the Spinward Marches? I'm not looking to put any particular one down, just a bit of curiousity on my part.

Aside form the Zhodani zone, to wich few players venture, I guess the least used sector is probably Trin's Veil, as most adventures are played closer to the border (where less stable conditions are met).

Of course, this is only a personal opinion and experience, not necessarily representative of the Traveller players community.

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

I am running my campaign from Trin's Veil.

I wanted to have as much separation from other "things" which could distract my players until we could work out the bugs of not having played Traveller since the time of CT.

My guess would be Aramis, bog all there except religious dictatorships, Vargr raiding parties and fruit.

Ah, which I don't have, not in hardcopy anyway, and I'm not going to print off 150 odd pages from the CD ROM. There are a few copies floating around on the net still, think one of them is even in the UK.

Oh well, not Aramis then. Lanth? Can't recall ever spending much time in the Lanth subsector, except to pass through it. Suppose there's Double Adventure 2... Oddly I think in the first Traveller game I played we tended to spend a lot of time in the Trin's Veil subsector.

For games starting in the Marches Aramis is kinda out of the way (at least we generally started on Regina) and largely inaccessible (for the usual J1 Free-Trader anway), though as noted it features in The Traveller Adventure.

District 268 would probably get my vote as the most backwater subsector. Notable only for its links of the Main. Though again I sort of recall an adventure or two set in it. I seem to recall that being a side point of the early adventures, dragging the players through every subsector

my vote goes to Lunion - absolutely nothing of interest except a bunch of corp worlds.

If the question which subsector we think is actually least used, I don't quite see how one would go about figuring it out. A process of elimination doesn't get me very far. I believe Regina and District 268 are the ones with most adventures written for them, with Aramis and (I like to think) the Sword Worlds close behind. After that I'd be hard pressed to divide the remaining 12 into the middle six and the bottom six, let alone select one for the bottom spot. Perhaps something like this: Middle six (in no particular order): Five Sisters, Mora, Darrian, Lanth, Glisten, Vilis. Bottom six (again in no particular order): Cronor, Querion, Jewell, Lanth, Lunion, Trin's Veil.

If the question is which one we each think the least interesting... well, that's a toughie. I can think of interesting adventures for every one of them. I've either written adventures for or have notes for adventures set in every one except Querion and Cronor, and that's just sheer happenstance.

So where are you putting Rhylanor?
