In the latest episode of their well-laid podcast, Ken and Robin talk Crate Man, secret maps, prepping Cthulhu and the raid on Powell’s.
Ralf Schemmann produced this schematic map, a snap shot really, of the translight corridors connecting The Bleed, the “region” of space where the PCs – lasers – undertake their contracts in the Ashen Stars game.
From Ashen Stars:
Translight corridors are not fixed in space. They orbit through the universe, just as the rest of the galaxy does, but at a fractionally variant rate. No two trips between points connected by a corridor takes exactly the same amount of time. Before embarking on any given journey, navigators must continually track and update the positioning of corridors.
A literal map of the various corridors, color-coded with their cluster identifications, would have to appear as a hologram, and change in real time. As of press time Pelgrane Press had yet to perfect the technology necessary to present such a map to its readers.
Still, Ralf with ProFantasy’s Cosmographer gave it his best shot!
