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!

  1. Heaven and Earth is an excellent piece of freeware for generating Traveller system maps (and anything up to a Sector of space). You can download it from here http://www.downport.com/wbd/HEAVEN_&_EARTH.htm It will work on Windows 8 or 8.1 machines – this from a thread on COTI
    “I'm on Windows 8.1. (blech!)

    I right-clicked on the executable file and went to the compatability tab. Told it to run as if it were in an NT environment. Works like a charm now.”

    Hope this helps,
