The Crab Claw Cluster

I have finished rolling up a subsector for the solo Traveller game I’m going to be playing. So I introduce the Crab Claw Cluster, a group of systems on the coreward & spinward edge of Coalition space.

Along with this map (made using the excellent free version of Hexographer), I have also rolled up all the solar systems, and written a short paragraph on each of them – which I’ll likely be sharing in the future.

This sector is a springboard for my Traveller AU – which is very similar in structure to the Third Imperium setting, just with Alien races being a little rarer. Again, I’ll likely explain my setting in more detail later.

As for mapping, does anybody know of any good software for making a solar system map? For the heavily visited worlds I’ll likely use the advanced system generation rules from Book 6 Scouts, but would like a good way to present it… Feel free to comment if you have any ideas!

Tabletop has grabbed me again

Hello, I’m Category, and I recently started getting back into tabletop gaming after many years away. I’ll mostly be posting my 15mm minis I’ve painted, terrain I’ve made, and reports from my solo RPG sessions. Expect almost all of it to be in a sci-fi vein!
The systems I am currently using are Five Core/Five Parsecs From Home for tabletop skirmish battles, Classic Traveller for my RPGs, and Mythic GME running them.
So to kick things off, here are the first 15mm minis I’ve ever painted. They are from “SMAT Battle Armour” from 15mm.co.uk. I think I did well for a first try… I hope to improve though.
