Great stuff ClymAngus.
Speacialy like the way you represent the planets with all the info easily seen at a glance. Must have taken ages to figure it all out.

Only 7 more to go... Eh.

All the best on a great job.

Wow! :shock: Very good indeed.

Does make you wonder why Lave is such a strategic location though, doesn't it? It should, according to the map, be something of a backwater.

Cheers,

Drew.

The though does occur to me and usually causes me to wake up screaming.
I think I'll save the rest till I'm 80.

That said if you do spot any glaring errors or anyone wants the illustrator file then your welcome to it. A one metre by 2 glossy print would look quite swift. When I have a spare £100 I might even entertain the notion.

Drew I did find myself having some great story ideas whilst making this. You can really see where potential conflicts might occur, It's really helped me see the possible cross cultural dynamics of oolite and bring the whole game a little more to life.

Lave, yes. I suppose it is a bridge head with Zaonce on the other side although ISINOR might have been a better choice for a training school.

I did this for chapter two of Mutabilis about this time two years ago as I recall. Looking at the map I decided that Sotiqu, Solageon, Zadies and Esusti where places where most trade routes in Chart One would probably run through, so set one of the early altercations there as a sort of 'trade' dispute. All helps to make the story more believable...

Dare not look at the map if it's going to provoke more story ideas though.... not enough free time... maybe just a peek.... nooooooo :wink:

Cheers,

Drew.

Feline worlds "trading" with dictatorship rodent worlds. Sell your dissidents to the gourmet market!

Pity I couldn't actually find any but this was a close second;
Isanlequ raiding parties going for a day trip out to Zaerla. KFZ anyone? :)

Still tech level 2 Vs tech 5 it certainly wouldn't be a turkey shoot. :D

Very good map. The cluster North of the Xexedi Cluster still needs a name. It's the last busy sector of Galaxy1.

Then up 2 Galaxy 2. Right on Commander :D

I'll think about it.

In the mean time naming that area well here are a few things to consider:

An unusually high number of corporate industrials being supplied with food by down right dangerous low tec poor agricultural worlds. There would be big profits to be made both ways trading but a very very high probability of piracy.

It is a place of stark contrasts, more than anywhere else on galaxy 1. I suggest:

The crucible chain
The Inera anomaly
The triskelion nebula (refering to the 3 high tech industrial worlds of Inera, Rexebe and sorace)


One other small note. I NEED PROOF READERS FOR THIS!! I found 3 system duplicates importing the space way information alone! It's an opportunity to get a credit on the chart!!

Small updats space way fixes titles.
