    A Crew of Misfits %15.05.2225, #Tycho Station, #New Horizons Zone, #European Sector The new, company-issued e-board displayed the same personnel file portraits for half an hour now - six images, including his own.

    Realistic Science-Fiction RPG Star Maps

    This is my current state, all stars within 15 parsecs of Sol, seen from Galactic North. Top is Coreward, Left is Spinward, etc., 1 square = 1 parsec. I used the Galactic Longitude and Distance from Sol to calculate 2D coordinates, so direction and distance from Sol are true. To thin out the...

    Realistic Science-Fiction RPG Star Maps

    I thought I could go with Near Space. I wanted to use it for expanding the Euro Sector not described in Hostile. It only contains twelve systems of the subsector "Konigreich", though.

    RPG Combats and the Time they Occupy

    Conflict is a/the central part of stories. Armed conflict is often the focus of RPGs. I like detailed combat rules (like GURPS or Pathfinder) as they give me the feeling of versatility and being part of combat's "minute" actions. But those rules have downsides, too. Non-system-oriented players...
