Interesting take on how to convert Traveller stats to fantasy.

I have one quibble, though - you call the first part "Human Village Determination", when in fact Pop 9 and A would be large cities - AFAIK, other than Constantinople, medieval Europe´s biggest cities where all in the lower tens of thousands of inhabitants.

Nope. Not all. Almost all, but not all.

Noting the source as questionable, but matching remembered figures...

Circa 1200

Constantinople 200K
Palermo (Italy) 150K
Thessalonika 150K

London somewhere between 20K and 50K at the time
