IMTU, one of the founders of Tavonni is Baroness Heidi Maria Heyerdahl, an exile from the Sword Worlds - who is itching to get back and conquer her planet, after her family was forced out in a coup. [cue spy scenarios here...]

I did love the new MgT2 Lunion/Shield Worlds product. It's MJD's work and it's really fantastic. (I've actually been looking for an excuse to gush about it.)
Would like to see a YouTube video that talks about it.

Have you developed the Sword Worlds and the inhabitants thereof in your own campaigns/prep?


Any favorite canonical sources on the SW?
I purchased the Mongoose book on the Sword Worlds, and was not that thrilled with it. Presently I am working on the Sword Sub-sector in my Piper Sector out on the rim, primarily using H. Beam Piper's Space Viking as the basis, with some of the planets using Sword World names from Piper that are not used in Traveller.

For those interested in really getting into the Sword Worlds, you can download an Icelandic Grammar courtesy of the US Army in World War 2 at archives.org.

https://archive.org/details/TM30-313Icelandic

There are additional Icelandic grammar primers there, just go to the advanced search and enter "Icelandic" as part of the title. I read the "Sage of Burnt Njal" in college, and it is a good read., especially if you want to understand how the Sword Worlders might carry on.
