I will be using Classic Traveller 1977 Books 1-3 (with some text taken from 1981), though I am seriously considering the range band space combat from Starter Traveller.

I have been taking a lot of Christopher Kubasik's ideas to mind (and the other folks who have also been posting in the same vein), so reading his blog will be useful for getting a feel for where I cam coming from.

I have in progress, reasonably happy with, modified skill tables for Supplement 4 which I am open to discussion with players about.

Setting will be my own, currently working on a 2 subsector area somewhat inspired by the Seven Sisters and District-268 subsectors of the Spinward Marches that is at the frontier and beyond of "the imperium" (whatever that is...). The encounter tables and procedures in the books (and more tables I pull from other places or just flat out make up) provide a lot of implicit setting. I've posted a map here in this board.

My concept within the setting is that the PCs are mostly ex-military (with Merchants and Other thrown in of course, plus possibly the odd Supplement 4 career or two) all having mustered out on the same world, or having made their way there. I will leave it up to the players to add more definition as to why they know each other, but I think that should be a given (or if someone is unknown the the group, the players have primed things so we don't play the "we all meet in the bar and get into a fight). I'm assuming someone will muster out with a ship and the group has an interest in exploring the sandbox and figuring out what they can make of it (trade, trying to find a world to exploit, just wandering, whatever).

But it's a sandbox, and it's your game as much as mine, so ultimately we will work together and I hope something exciting will emerge from play.

My campaign has a web page with links to my house rules, setting information, various inspections of Traveller material (including a section by section comparison of the various versions of Classic Traveller) and links to all of Christopher Kubasik's blog posts on Traveller:

It would be nice to collect all reference links, images here (character generator, ship maps, sector maps, etc.)

Ok, here this will be a curated list:

Campaign web page: http://www.mindspring.com/~ffilz/Gaming/winedark.html
Generator: http://www.mindspring.com/~ffilz/Gaming ... acter.html
Campaign reference with characters, deck plans, crew positions etc.: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_81 ... sp=sharing
House rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YEP ... sp=sharing
Price List: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SqE ... sp=sharing
Skill tables for Supplement 4 careers: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kS3 ... sp=sharing
For the edition nerds, my section by section comparison (helpful if your copy of Classic Traveller isn't 1977, or you want to find out more about any rule bits I've taken from the other versions): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jsH ... sp=sharing

If there's anything else missing, let me know and I'll update this list.

I also need to update my campaign web page to assure that all of this is actually linked from there (and then you would really only need the 1st link...)

Here's a link to a closeup map of the Imperial Area of Wine Dark with a table of locations, names and UWP's.
