Thousand Suns™ Update

March 26, 2007

I’m thinking of adapting the basic idea of the community rules from Gamma World (now that several versions of them are OGC) as a way of describing planets in Thousand Suns™. The question now is what each planetary stat represents. I’m thinking of using level to represent the population of the planet because I could even use that as an in-game term (“Center is a 9th-level world, so it has a population in the billions.”).

Finding analogues to Str, Dex, Con, Int, Wis, and Cha so as to adequately describe a planet will be the real issue. Traveller’s old Universal World Profiles had Starport type, Size, Atmosphere, Hydrographics, Population, Government Type, Law Level, and Tech Level. This might be a good place to start looking for inspiration. Some of those things can be represented by planetary feats and skills, but some cannot.

I’ll need to think on this some more, but, the basic idea is a sound one, I think.
