Default New Patent of Nobility

I am the proud possessor of an Imperial Patent as Baron of Jarsae in Dagudashaag 2803. Newly promoted to the Moot I am naturally quite curious about my new charge and hope to visit it one day .

Seaching through local library data (Google) I find several references to Signal GK which appears to have developed some background for this area. Is Signal GK 'canon' and are there other sources that may have developed Jarsea or the Dagudashaag sector?

Ta. This is one of the more useful sources that came up via Google. But it is not clear whether the use of Signal GK has "fan fiction" status or "canon" status.

Don't get me wrong, its good stuff. But I would consider, for example, my family background as "fan fiction" and a shade less authoritative than canon.

It's somewhere in between. Signal-GK was originally a fan project. Until one of the T4 adventures made references to the library data. Which dragged it into the realm of semi-canon with data and references being pushed into canon documents.

We welcome everything, even fan fiction.

If I can get my act together, there's been a plan to make this canon much more available for over a year, but I've been the delay.

I know, back to the salt mines.

I picked up Marquis Tuwayk/Deneb 0339. Finally, a decent starport.

I assume it's because I bought the T5.09 PDF?

Quite likely, but it may also be due to moot membership.

I tend to shy away from this subject, since as I don't have a title of my own, anything I say can far too easily be percieved as sour grapes. Otherwise I would have objected to this thread being in the OTU forum, on the grounds that some of these, let me coin the term 'reward titles', are plainly not part of the OTU. All the archducal titles for starters. There's even an Archduke of Sylea who isn't Strephon in the 'RTU' (Reward TU ). Granted, many of these titles are canon-compatible, but none of them are canon, not having shown up in any official published material.

So when you speak of making the canon on reward titles available, I just have to ask just how Marc Miller see them fitting or not fitting into the OTU.


Hans

PS. Another reason why I don't speak up more on the subject is my resolve to try to avoid raining on other people's parades if I can avoid it (and if I remember not to). People get worlds and get exited about it, generating all sorts of material about their world, usually with their avatar in charge of the place. Why spoil their fun by pointing out that any world run by a noble appointed by the Imperium would be a type 6 government or similar dog-in-the-manger carping? Even if I think they don't belong in the OTU.
