Ad Astra – Index so far

I’ve been working on “Ad Astra”, a space opera campaign for Traveller. I thought I’d publish a bit of the background information… it’ll be useful for potential players, and I relish feedback from my critical friends.

First up, Earth…

The Long Republic is a human government, where the people usually live on the move, in gigantic “Caravan Ships”.

I have very much enjoyed the discussion that the posts have generated. Thanks to all.
