Welcome Traveller Fans!


Hey hey, welcome Science Fiction Fans! This blog is being used in an effort to show my continuing work on a famous sci-fi game called "Traveller". My main Traveller Republik (TrR) blog is located HERE. We want (and welcome) new people to work with us to create a galaxy wide Traveller set up. I work daily on TrR and have several other people helping me as well. We hope you enjoy this blog, that it may inspire you to greatness, and that you will possibly come and join us on the TrR team, excelsior!

The idea behind this website is that Traveller is so bogged down with "canon" that you can only do so much with it. I myself have been playing Traveller for decades and now that every world seems to be claimed and a history written about it, there is no room for real creativity without someone screaming "that's not canon!". So lets do this instead, we have an entire galaxy to play with and in this universe the Third Imperium doesn't exist. Any stellar state in this new universe could be made similar to the 3rd Imp but this allows us much more room to play with. We are looking for people who can contribute in small or large ways, and also HIWG members to help flesh out the overall expansion of humanity across the Milky Way, which took a little over 80,000 years. Feel free to look at the Traveller website URL I sent you. I am also blogging about what I am doing over there; check my blogspot below. Let me know if you are interested in any way. Thanks, Damon

Vacations

Although much of my time was taken by work on the city-planet Kobra World, I was able to spend a few weeks offworld. During that time I was able to travel among the Kobra client worlds and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I enjoyed the beaches of Coropuma and toured the atmospheric weather stations on the planet Marsella, which were just gigantic. The technical skill to maintain these huge weather facilities was well beyond the locals capabilities but Kobra World often provides critical technical support amongst its client worlds to help stave off any tech regress. Overall I enjoyed myself on the tours of the local planets.

Echo Moon Colony

The more we travel in the Uncanny, the more I am enjoying it and that especially includes my fellow travellers on the ship. A great many different peoples and cultures have spread across the galaxy in Mankind's expansion and one of my favorites was the gambling spot at the Echo Moon Colony; the views from its plasteel dome were stunning and I thought I would share them here. Enjoy!

Some photos

So I have been taking some random photos along my journey and will post some from time to time. This shot was from the inside of Ringbolt Station; the view was stunning and I just had to share it with ya'll.

On Miloria

Landing on Miloria wasn't easy because of significant atmospheric turbulence but we made it down and it was nice to breathe in the planets' aroma, a nice mixture of woodlands and cardamon-like spice. The planet has as very small population and they were eager to trade for high-tech items and advanced (sonic) weaponry. The local materials are all organic and the people are very welcoming. I enjoyed a brief few hours on Miloria before we had to lift off and continue our journey. I like this planet and its friendly people, a lot.

Miloria, the Fungus Planet

The next stop on our interstellar trip is the planet Miloria, also know socially as the "Fungus Planet". I found the information on this world fascinating and thought I would share it in my public ejournal. When colonists first arrived here tens of thousands of years ago, they were astonished at how aggressive the local flora was. Being a hot-house planet, nearly the entire surface was covered in one form of plant life or another, but the most predominant was a certain type of fungus, a mushroom-like form of vegetation. Fungi are readily available on most worlds and they are especially invasive on Miloria. Early researchers developed a method of growing this fungi in a controlled environment that makes it more sustainable like plastic, rubber, wood, and leather. Apparently, according to the local history books, the first items created from this fungus were everyday objects including vases, chairs, lampshades, and slippers. Making these articles is a simple low-tech process: they are grown in a controlled environment and formed into specific objects using ceramic molds. Once the fungus has filled out the mold - a process which takes several weeks, depending on the size of the mold - the object is fired in an over, which kills the fungus and prevents further growth. Its also highly reusable; you can break them into smaller pieces, reintroduce live fungus, mold it, and then sell it again as a new product. Now, on Miloria, the non-toxic fungi replace plastic, stones, and bricks in buildings. Can you imagine that?! A city grown out of mushrooms! How neat is that?
