roll20 page:https://app.roll20.net/join/558520/CwpvVwPrevious Threads:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35586871/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35631395/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35652246/So this is a cooperative project for all of /tg/.The system we will use for system creation will be Mongoose Traveller. I am using the 2008 printing of the Core Rulebook, pg.s 1697 to 181. Any Entry in the Universal World Profile(UWP) may be altered if /tg/ doesn't like the result, but once a world is complete the code is fixed. Currently no world is complete and only tentative descriptions are in place. If anyone on /tg/ wishes to add, correct, or otherwise alter a description, UWP, Trade Codes, or Travel Zone, please green text or otherwise quote the original entry and post it with your submission. This can be done here on /tg/ or on the roll20 Tiji Sector forum.The project is not limited to just building the sector, the cultures and races are also under discussion. Currently the only inhabitants are humans, the scattered Zoani, and the terrifying Coral Minds. Random creature creation can be found on pg.s 69 to 75.The goal is to develop the sector enough to allow gaming groups to adventure and explore using the Traveller ruleset. Keeping with this, some parts of sub-sectors, or even some entire sub-sectors, will have locations of systems that haven't been explored, surveyed, or otherwise documented, letting groups have their own bit of the Tiji Sector just for their game.I'm going to be out pub crawling tonite so this thread is it for today...unless the specialty brews are shit, in which case I'll probably be back much earlier than I planned.
System Generation summary, dice rolls will be generally follow this sequence:Size: 2d6+-2Atmosphere: 2d6+-7+(Size), this can vary if using Space Opera or Hard Science system generationTemperature: this stat isn't included in the UWP, but is instead a story mechanic for detailing a system, may also effect HydrographicsHydrographics: 2d6+-7+(Size, may have modifiers for Temperature and Atmosphere also)That the raw physical data for the primary location within the system, and lets us know what the planet/moon/asteroid is like, then we have:Population: 2d6+-2(or other modifier in Hard Science)Government: 2d6+-7+(Population)Faction/Faction Strength: these are more hidden stats that gives some background for shenanigans to happen within the system.Law Level: 2d6+-7+(Government)These are the social data of the system, it lets us know how populated the system is, who is in charge, and how badly the PC that just shot at a cop screwed up.Finally we have the Technical DataStarport: 2d6(may be modified if using Hard Science)Tech Level: 1d6+(a variety of modifiers based on both the physical and social data of the planet.The UWP is a string of alpha-numeric characters translating each value into a data range from 0 to 15(F) and is read as:(Starport)(Size)(Atmo)(Hydro)(Pop)(Gov)(Law)-(Tech)
I thought we would try something new today and work backwards through our list of remaining systems for the rest of the sub-sector. So if any of you bright young stars are just dieing to test your writing skills or you luck with /tg/'s RNG hop in for some crazy shit.That leaves us creating system 0803.Unless of course anyone wants to try their hand at producing write ups for the previous systems, or even the terrifying Mind Coral that inhabit the planet Porpoise.
> /tg/ get's thread complaining about not getting shit done anymore. 5 homebrew threads going on. all but 1 dies. >That thread is not this one.fuck the fucking fuckers.
Rolled 4, 4, 5, 5, 3, 4, 4, 3 = 32 (8d6)System 0803Size, Atmo, Temp, Hydro; Hard Science

Rolled 4, 3, 1, 1, 4, 6, 1 = 20 (7d6)>>35707399ack, was only supposed to be 7d6.Pop 3 (3+2-2), Gov 3(7-7+3), 1 Faction(1&2 =1), Law 2(6-7+3)So Faction Gov, Strength, Starport and Tech Level
>>35707451Faction is Obscure splinter of the Government, Starport is D(4+6-7+3), TL is 3(1+1 min 3)UWP: D696332-3Trade Codes: Low-Population, Low-Tech, Non-Industrial.This is a shithole of the highest order.
Rolled 4, 6, 5, 4, 5, 6, 2, 3 = 35 (8d6)Let's try for a comparison:Size, Atmo, Temp, Hydro
Rolled 2, 4, 4, 4, 3, 4, 5 = 26 (7d6)>>35707832Size 8, Atmo A, Temp ROASTING, Hydro 0. Pop, Gov, Faction(1d3), Law
>>35707521Is it a shithole, or is it a paradise of lush vegetation populated by only a small tribe of humans who have (mostly) evolved to survive in the tainted atmosphere, just as the flora has done?
Rolled 1, 3, 5, 4, 1, 3, 4 = 21 (7d6)>>35707939Atmo of Dense(Tainted) and TL 3 means everyone wanders around with WWI gasmasks all the time and they don't have the industrial base to make more...anyway, Pop 5, Gov 6, 2 Factions, Law 8.Faction Types/Strenghts, Starport, and TL.
Rolled 3, 5, 2, 2 = 12 (4d6)>>35708055Well I screwed that up, there are 2 factions not 1. 4 more dice to finish the set
So this one is just as badD8A0567-8an Earth-sized planet with an Exotic Atmosphere(unbreathable to humans, but otherwise not harmful) with next to surface water. TL minimum is 8. Also shithole, but at least they have things to trade to maintain their Tech.Trade Codes: Desert(gives shitton of trade options), Non-Industrial.
>>35707939So did you want to try your hand at making this system, my rolls have ended up pretty meh.
Rolled 2, 2, 1, 3, 3, 3, 1, 2 = 17 (8d6)Last try for 0803
Rolled 5, 5, 3, 4, 5, 4, 1, 3 = 30 (8d6)So, I'm gonna roll that again...
>>35709281Pop Gov Factions Law
Rolled 2, 4, 6, 2, 3, 1, 2, 5, 2, 2 = 29 (10d6)>>35709307would help if I actually input the roll, screw it, adding Starport and Tech level too.
Rolled 6, 3, 5, 4, 3, 2, 6, 3, 2, 4, 4, 5 = 47 (12d6)>>35709332FUCK THIS EARTHC885784-4Class C starport on a TL 4 Planet, fucking fuck.screw it! It's no less screwy than the rest of the fucking sub-sectorBases and GG.
>>35709417So a Scout Base and Gas GiantTrade Codes, Agricultural, Garden, Low-Tech, Rich. It's a goddamn 40k Agri-world.
Rolled 2, 1, 1, 2, 6, 2, 2, 1, 5, 2, 2, 1, 3, 5, 4, 1, 1 = 41 (17d6)So next is 0801, best of three
Rolled 3, 6, 3, 2, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 5, 2, 2, 3, 5 = 45 (17d6)>>35709980E00512-8Next

>>35710213B9767BC-5Another Agricultural Garden world, but with an oppressive dictatorship
Rolled 4, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6, 2, 1, 1, 6, 4, 5, 6, 2, 3, 4, 1 = 67 (17d6)I'll roll.
>>35711732E8B0466-9An Earth-sized planet with a Corrosive Atmosphere, tens of thousands population under a Captive Government. Trade Codes: Desert, Non-Industrial
so, the other thread was right, /tg/ really doesn't get shit done. the internet was right, who knew?
>>35713550Well, hey, I was a little busy doing a little thing called WORK, so don't get your knickers in a twist.
Rolled 6, 5 - 2 = 9 (2d6 - 2)Since the OP's probably sulking, I'll just roll for planet size.
>>35714049So slightly larger then earth.Rolling for atmosphere.
Rolled 5, 5 + 2 = 12 (2d6 + 2)>>35714356
>>35713870>>35714049I actually took a nap, us old people do that now and again.Size 9, impressiveand Atmosphere 12...Uh...Insidious...not good.
>>35713550one little stumbling block and you give up? That kind of behavior is beneath you. /tg/ is slow sometimes. And some of us have jobs.Calm the fuck down.
>>35714514anon, you were the only other one here, then no-one for 5 hours. I bumped the thread to keep if from dieing before the Ward thread.
>>35714683and I'm gonna be heading our for a few hours now. The pub is calling. so I need someone to keep the thread alive.
>>35714698Well shit, I've got to cook my dinner...
>>35714698my terrible timing continues, then. Until next time.
>>35714730let's finish up this system and see where it takes us. Hot Cold or Standard?
Rolled 2, 5 = 7 (2d6)>>35714809Standard.Rolling for heat.
>>35714838That's 13 temp, roasting, Hydro 2d6+-8
Rolled 6, 3 - 8 = 1 (2d6 - 8)>>35715011
>>35715032Yay, water, Pop is 2d6+-2
>>35715143heading out be back in 2 or 3 hours.
Rolled 6, 1 - 2 = 5 (2d6 - 2)>>35715143Jeez, and just when I finish dinner...
Are we actually using any of those generated above?This subsector may end up being a deep backwater. So be it. We'll figure it out as we go.if we want to shape the map, then I'd suggest generating a pile of worlds and *placing them* on the dot map we have. If we want to just roll and see what floats to the top and where, and build on that, let's keep on trucking.
>>35715512>>35716497I figure we'll use the two garden worlds:0801 - B9767BC-5and 0803 - C885784-4use them as the bread basket for the sub-sector.
>>35717729They will certainly drive trade with that cluster.
>>35717877Two Ag Ga Lt worlds? yeah I would think so.left off with ?9C15??-?so lets finish this one and then start doing write ups for columns 4 and 8
Rolled 3, 4, 3, 4, 6, 6, 4 = 30 (7d6)>>35718029Have seven dice
Rolled 5, 4 = 9 (2d9)Population multiples for the two Ag worlds.
Rolled 5, 2, 6, 1, 5, 4, 4, 6, 5, 3, 6, 6, 1, 1, 1, 3, 6, 4, 4, 5, 1, 4, 3, 4, 1 = 91 (25d6)>>35718133Gonna skip ahead a little, to see if we have a winner. Looking for 11 or 12.
Rolled 5, 6, 2, 5, 1, 2, 3, 5, 4, 3 = 36 (10d6)>>35718186dropping that final '1' and rolling the last five pairs.
>>35718226>>35718186Without using the HSF rule for ports, that's two A ports in the remaining worlds here.
>>35718271Whups! That's two pairs too many, so we'll drop the last two. With the world half done being another, lets drop the first one.Working up the map now.
>>35718110Gov 5(Feudal Technocracy), Law5, Station A, Tech B UWP for 0710:A9C1555-CFl, Ht, NI,or should we use Hard Science? makes itB9C0444-A
>>35718029>>35718110That makes this one an A portA9C1555-DDo we want to cap the neighborhood at TL12 or 13? Now is the time to decide.
>>35718413I think we'll cap at 13(D), the Volantis already has TL 13
Rolled 5, 6, 2, 2, 6, 5, 2, 1, 3, 6, 4, 2, 1, 4, 3, 1 = 53 (16d6)>>35718512Bases and GG for 0801 and 0710
>>357185660801 = GG0710= Naval, Research, GG
>>35718349TL13 give a possible Jump 4, which sort of blows the map's constraints a bit.
>>35718618Limit the Jump-4 ships to ownership of the Systems that can maintain them. It limits the sector down again. Plus Jump-4 Drives are EXPENSIVE. According to High Guard any TL12 that want's to can build a Jump-4 for 200% the size and 150% the cost.
>>35718742That's in a setting that knows how to do J4. A setting that caps at J3 probably can't do that at all.
>>35718566>>35718610Ah, insidious World is in 0710? let me adjust the map.
>>35718512Wait, Agrabah/Volantic has TL13? I'm showing a TL12.
>>35718867I think I like this port spread better, though I could see switching to HSF for Insidious World in this case.
>>35718918Isn't Volantis B4A0888-D? did I copy it down wrong? Let me check the Archives.
The thread archives have 0309 - Volantis - B4A0888-D
>>35719025I see what happened.In http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/35652246#q35681089 you took a 6+7 roll for TL 13.Then in http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/35652246#q35681163 you listed it as B4A0888-C.
>>35719549Hmm. Perhaps I cropped it based on the TL discussion in the very first thread.
>>35718984Uh, did we forget to name the last two planets?
>>35719625Ah. It was a pretty messy thread. Anyway, I'm just calling 0801 Dirt, and 0803 More Dirt, for now. Dunno what we are going to name 0710.
>>35719747I have a working name for 0710 of Inzidi, but it's a bit punny for long term use.
>>35719762I don't get it
>>35719774Atmosphere type is ISIDIous.
>>35719801Or INSIDI-ous when I check my spelling.
>>35719840It's fine until we get something better.

>>35720095I'm going to petition for Inzidi to bump its TL to the max for the sake of the Research Station. That results in:Inzidi 0710 B9C0444-C N De Ni Rs A 004 Im

>>35720232Okay, so I've revised Volantis down to TL 12. Inzidi has an A port though, making it the only Star Yard in the sub-sector so far.
>>35720278Do you not want to use the ports I rolled ahead on earlier? They're on the current maps.
>>35720278Keeping Standard rules for Inzidi goes back to:Inzidi 0710 A9C1555-C N Fl Ni Rs A 104 Im
>>35720317>>35720337We can use the ports you have there, saves us a bit during system generation. Plus it lets us choose either 0507 or 0610 as the sub-system capital.
Inzidi (0710 A9C1555-C N Fl Ni Rs A 104 Im)A thoroughly unpleasant world in a young system, Inzidi is drowning under a very high atmospheric concentration of hydrogen gas. The remainder is hydrogen compounds, the result of the world slowly spouting new material to react with. Hydrogen can and does find its way through any protections the Imperials can devise, though the ancient Core Lords facility built into the side of a mountain manages to keep the hydrogen at bay. Studying this facility is just one of the reasons Inzidi hosts a legion of scientists, engineers, and other disciplines above and beyond the small permanent populace. The concentration of talent here also serves the Imperial Navy, and the small shipyard here can produce any prototype the Navy requires, often to the exclusion of any other construction.
>>35720400Actually, I'm thinking that most of the "Imperium" is in this subsector, with a little spread into B, E, and F. As such, any really good world is a likely candidate for the Imperial Seat
>>35720400I like it.and you would have know it sooner if captcha didn't hate me...
>>35720725Shall we finish up column 7 and call it a night then? or stop here?
>>35720744Suggest naming "Dirt" as "Nikorr" and going all Best Korea on the writeup. It needs a neighbor to be just as dickish, though. Otherwise the Imperium would roll over that TL5 bullshit and install its own.
Rolled 1, 1, 4, 6, 6, 1 = 19 (6d6)>>35720763Two worlds? Blitz it is.Physicals for 0702
>>35720796I think the Dictator of Dirk/Nikorr has better tech, and conquered More Dirt and established the Bureaucracy there. He deliberately keeps the technology low and sells the majority of the worlds' production to the rest of the Quadrant.
Rolled 6, 5, 6, 6, 4, 4, 6 = 37 (7d6)>>35720818Asteroids!E100???-?Pop dice and TL
>>35720835C1009CC-CGonna move this to 0701, thus the port change.

Rolled 3 (1d9)Population multipleName: Feldspar Belt (because /tg/, that's why)
>>35720913The Field of Rocks Belt?I have ZERO problems with this. Once we get these done i'm gonna save a copy of the data and get the roll20 page updated. Sometime tomorrow I'll try to get /tg/ to do some write ups for the systems without them.
Feldspar Belt 0701 C0009CC-C As Hi In Va A 314 FbA draconic dictatorship with what most outsiders describe as "religious trappings" rules this belt. Despite the potential for spread across the belt, most of the populace is found in a very small part of the total arc, in a cluster of large asteroids hollowed out and blistered with domes. Despite the high technology available here, living is close-set and no better than passable for most of the three billion inhabitants.The Feldspar Belt has no commercial capability to manufacture spacecraft. Every starship is a State project, is hundreds of years old, or was "liberated" (ie. stolen) from Imperial or free state visitors. This remains enough to tie the Belt to its primary source of food, the neighboring Nikorr system.
>>35721020I lOVE it.
>>35721069Any bases for Feldspar Belt?
Rolled 4, 1, 2, 4, 2, 2, 6, 4, 2, 2 = 29 (10d6)>>35721097Let's find out.
>>35721131Imperial Consulate?Located outside the Feldspar Habitat Zone as both a snub and a carrot to enterprising citizens...
Is it bad that I want 0604 to have a Dictator and be at war with Nikorr for control of More Dirt?>>35721162I like that too. Offering Asylum to the Citizens of Feldspar and any who make it from Nikorr.
The Imperium maintains a Consulate beyond the Habitat Arc as a snub to the Feldarchy and as a destination for desperate defectors. Outside visitors are strongly urged to stop at the Consulate instead of accepting the smooth invitations of the Feldarchy.
Nikorr 0801 B9767BC-5 Ag Ga Lt A 525 FbA rich, if somewhat cloying, agricultural world tied to the Feldarchs of the Feldspar Belt by family and ideological connections. Nikorr feeds the Feldspar Belt at its own expense. In exchange, Feldspar maintains a tiny boatyard in orbit here, allowing the often brutal dictators of Nikorr to travel as they will above the heads of their farming serfs.Nikorr's atmosphere is sulfurous. The windy altitudes of the overlords get very little of the stink and shortened lifespans, but the lowland agribusiness serfs do not have it so well.
>>35721336I'm gonna hit the racks, the meds for this cold are starting to kill me. I have the thread archived. Be sure to check your posts get added.
>>35721436Got 'em all saved. So I'll be able to drop a current Subsector A PDF at some point.
