Talking [Referee] I am so tempted to say "No!", but I won't.

No, since you have nothing to apologize for.

I ain't mad at ya, homie. I was just wanting hear if you had a better idea than I did so I could swipe it for later use. ;p

So, don't worry I can take it as well as dish and have a somewhat thick skin these days.

That would Permatic County.

It is to mark the County Seats for borders and routes later.

Sorry for missing that one. If you find other codes that don't make sense try the 9.2.0 file the codes are in the metadata in that file.

Yep, that's my standard reference. "Pc" is the only one I've not found in there so far. It's mentioned repeatedly, but not defined in the list with the others.

One of my favourite things about Traveller has always been that one can play without a group; that's been the vast majority of my experience with it since '77. Design a gun, ship, a fleet, some chars, a galactic sector...you're playing Traveller.

In that vein, I like filling in the stories for oddities handed me by the dice. Low-tech, massive-pop world with NIL: Natives? We've already gone where I would: tiny creatures, and a prime place for investigation...how dey do dat?

We all know how characters, even in these "modern" times where they no longer die during chargen, come up with "what the?" moments with regularity. Figuring out answers to those questions: you're playing Traveller.

I can't use that one here as I used it already for the TL-3 asteroid belt soceity. Only one excuse per sector.

Here is what I was thinking about a trillion people alive;

If you can not show that you are productive they put you into low berth situation.


Why do this? because they do not have the death penalty and they do not ship them off world because they will not burden other races or cultures.

On top of that, they have learned how to cure many of the common things in the health (medicine) area that would have helped slow down population grow.

Stop being interesting while I am still awake and checking me mail.

Interesting. Since they are Natives, first off I need to look at all the data I have and work out the culture and then see if there might more funky system data I can work with. Also there is Size, metabolism and of course maybe they are like lemming or salmon and they just haven't hit the die off point. In there was also mass hibernation while the ecosystem recovers from them eating it.

Now this time I mean it...wait what's that, the new mail flag? Uh-oh...

That's an idea, but I'm pretty sure you don't get low berth technology at TL-3. :P
