A Guide to Wu

A Traveller, newly arrived on Wu, might be amazed by the shimmering Great Outer Ocean, or the soaring arcologies of Gyeong, or the genetic manipulations seemingly worked and wrought upon every plant, every animal, and even every onworld inhabitant. But it is the stillness, a strange, uncanny hush that Travellers usually find most remarkable about Wu: densely populated cities with all citizens striving in concert toward one, mutually understood, end. —The Savage Main: Dark Nebula and Magyar Sectors, 3rd Ed.

The Wu mainworld contains an island chain that rings the shallow, 5,000 km-wide Inner Sea and is surrounded by the Great Outer Ocean. The chain includes three larger islands as well as numerous smaller islands. The largest island, Keun (2,955,385 km2 in area), stretches from the equator to approximately 60° south latitude. The second largest island, Maejil (869,231 km2 in area), lies almost entirely within the southern hemisphere, and its southern coast remains bitterly cold for most of the year. The third largest island, Jageun (521,538 km2 in area), straddles the equator and enjoys a temperate to warm climate.

Wu once supported a native ecosystem dominated by a diverse phylum of pseudo-arthropods ranging in size from tiny 4mm long specimens all the way up to a 3m-long armored species that resembled a flattened lobster. But approximately 1.2 million years ago the oceans of Wu underwent rapid acidification, which triggered a global extinction event that wiped out all life except for a sort of deep-sea pelagic worm.

The Wu system is located in the Urartu Cluster, sometimes known as the Clan Cluster, a string of 38 worlds connected by Jump-1 distances. The Cluster contains several habitable worlds, and during the Interstellar Wars Asian corporate interests on Terra sponsored a major colony on the garden world of Choan, now known as Sharn (Magyar 0601), far beyond the borders of either the Ziru Sirka or the Terran Confederation. Well supported by Korean and Japanese funds, by -2000 the Choan colony had grown enough to establish an outpost on Wu. Although Wu’s high hydrographic percentage made the world unattractive for large scale colonization, the planet was appealing for a major research center.

By -1900 the parent corporations back in the Solomani Rim had all collapsed or been bought out by the so-called “Vilanicorps,” leaving the Cluster holdings independent. Over the next 400 years Wu and the surrounding worlds grew and flourished, unimpeded by the slow collapse of the distant Second Imperium. Wu specialized in manufacturing high-tech products for export, and by -1500 most worlds in the region were trading among themselves. Aslan merchants, often from the Tralyeaeawi clan, carried goods to and from more distant markets.

But the following centuries saw the rise of Reaver fleets capable of sacking entire worlds. As interstellar commerce faltered, populations and technology levels across the region fell back precipitously. By -1100 Wu emerged as the capital of a small interstellar polity, the Wuan Technology Association, stabilizing at TL11. While Reavers devastated much of the region, the Wuan worlds avoided destruction by cultivating alliances with various Reaver factions. A few centuries later the Wuans used similar strategies with encroaching Aslan clans and corporations. By -800 the Wuans became allied with the independent Aslan clan Tlaiowaha, an offshoot of the Tralyeaeawi.

The Wuans maintained rudimentary bioengineering capabilities throughout the Long Night. They were able to produce early synthetics and could create such wonders as the singing orchid, or glow tree, or Wufish, all of which can still be found on Wu. But perhaps the most enduring product was the Wuan miniphant (Microelephas wuensis), a beast of burden used on low tech worlds from Langere to the Spinward Marches.

Wuan culture evolved to prioritize collaboration, cooperation, and efficiency. While the Vilani used social engineering to achieve similar goals, the Wuans turned to bioengineering. During the Long Night the Wuans undertook an ambitious eugenics project to self-geneer themselves into an entirely new subspecies of Humaniti. For each role in Wuan society there is an associated, highly specialized genotype that has been expressly engineered to perform that role. While there may be dozens of different roles and hundreds of variants, the apparent conformity of Wuan society can be unnerving to visitors.

The Wuan Technology Association arose from the Long Night as a loose coalition of allied corporations, and held considerable economic and political influence across the region. The Association helped broker the Treaty of Dark Nebula in 212, which brought a temporary halt to Human and Aslan conflict. Although the Association, like several other Magyar states, never joined the Third Imperium, the Wuan worlds became formal Imperial client states in 540.

The Wuans attempted to maintain this independence after the Solomani Autonomous Region was established in 704, but eventually the Wuan worlds conceded to the inevitable. The Association was instrumental in the development of the new Solomani Autonomous Region Navy. And although Wuan representatives argued that the 871 Charter of Confederation was needlessly provocative, the Association was admitted into the new Solomani Confederation as a founding member-state. Similarly, the Association unsuccessfully attempted to stave off the Solomani Rim War, correctly predicting the disastrous outcome for the Confederation.

Despite being one of the one of the most prosperous and technologically advanced Solomani member-states, the Association has an uneasy relationship with the Confederation. While the Solomani are generally more accepting of geneering than the Imperials, the Wuans raise deep-seated anxieties about genetic supermen. Further, the Wuan indifference toward the “traditional” Solomani family structure and their desire for better relations with the Imperium make the Association suspect in the eyes of many Party officials. For their part, the Wuans distrust the more racist policies of the Cause as well as the creeping tendency toward centralization within the Confederation government.

As of 1100 the Association consists of several large Wuan corporations with principal status and twice that number with associate status. The principal corporations are the equivalent of sector-wide concerns operating within 40 parsecs of Wu. The associate corporations are generally limited to a few worlds or subsectors in scope. The Association has been extremely successful in exporting goods and services outside the Confederation, cultivating markets within the Aslan Hierate, on the unaligned worlds of Reavers Deep and Dark Nebula, and with independent polities such as the Carrillian Assembly and the Gerontocracy of Ormine. Although the Association was not a direct combatant in the Solomani Rim War, the conflict eroded many lucrative trade routes and markets in Imperial sections of Daibei and Magyar.

Wu is an important center for trade and commerce for the region: an estimated 5 million passengers and 100 million dtons of cargo pass through the system each year. Although Wu does not carry an Industrial trade classification, Association members have established offworld manufacturing facilities throughout the resource-rich system. Wu’s only large moon, Dal, has a population of 743 million and is an important production center for power plants, jump drives, and maneuver drives. Wu Down Starport is located just outside the capital city of Gyeong, a megalopolis that sprawls along the eastern shore of Keun Island. The highport, though, is located at High Nara, a gleaming orbital city of 360 million, situated at the Wu-Dal L5 Lagrangian point. The starport is only rated Class B but has extensive facilities for building spaceships and repairing starships. SolSec and several Confederation ministries have located their Clan subsector coordinating offices at High Nara, which also hosts subsector-level permanent committees of the Interstellar Solomani Party.

The Association maintains a large trading fleet but does not have its own navy, relying on the Solomani Confederation for defense. Confederation Naval Base Serenity, located in a military reservation on the far side of Dal, is the headquarters for the Clan Subsector Fleet. Serenity Base has a modest orbital component at the Wu-Dal L2 point, and is the home port of the 53rd FleetRon and 19th CarrierRon. A co-located Army base on Dal supports the Solomani 44th Grav Tank Corps. The Confederation Army conducts protected forces training on the moon’s surface.

Wuan goods are as renowned for their quality and elegance as for their incorporation of advanced technology. Wuan design shows strong Aslan influence with graceful, balanced, and organic shapes but Wuan design lacks Aslan ornamentation, preferring a spare aesthetic with clean lines and a seamless mix of artificial and natural textures. Within the Confederation, the Association lags behind only its great rival the Boötean Federation for production of jump drives, power plants, meson screens, and nuclear dampeners. And the Association is unsurpassed for geneered agricultural products, androids and other synthetics, as well as clones. While member corporations such as Argent Mining use guest clones extensively, they are never sold outside the Association. Within the Association clones are afforded greater rights than elsewhere in the Confederation.

Wuan culture is remarkable for its stability, cohesiveness, and relative harmony. Despite the dramatic separation of the population into genetic castes, the different segments enjoy reasonable equality and most individuals express great contentment in their assigned roles. But that said, Wuans are not automatons and fully capable of individual agency. Occasional individuals reject their assignments entirely, and communities of such nonconformists have sprung up around Wu Down Starport and just outside the city of Jeum.

Class X Starports

In Traveller, a Class X starport designation can mean several different things:

  • Unknown. Usually used only in frontier areas, there is no available data about the world’s starport. The world might actually have a decent starport, but the ship’s library has no information. A “Uk” trade classification or similar might help distinguish this use from other uses.
  • Known, but No Facilities. Usually associated with Barren worlds, the world has no starport, not even a navigation beacon or landing strip. Such a system might or might not have an associated Red Zone.
  • Known, but Forbidden. Usually associated with a Red Zone travel advisory and the Forbidden trade classification. The world might or might not have starport facilities, but if they exist they are restricted or shuttered. The world might be actively interdicted and guarded by a naval force, or a beacon might warn off unwary travellers.

For most of Traveller’s history, Class X starports were so closely associated with Red Zones that the two categories were considered synonymous. But T5 realized that these classes could be uncoupled: one could theoretically have Class X starports without a Red Zones and Red Zones without Class X starports. For example, a world might have both a Class A starport and a Red Zone: a high-tech autocratic world with a law level so high that Travellers should be actively warned away. Or a Red Zone might be issued to a world wracked by civil war with a Class C starport. One iteration of the rules attempted to actively restrict Class X to only unknown starports; the rationale was all other previous uses of X could be classified at least as D or E with or without Red Zones.

However, when this interpretation was applied to the T5SS, the results broke a lot of Traveller Universe canon. Too much legacy data had used X for Red Zoned, interdicted worlds, and so these changes were eventually rolled back.

Or at least mostly rolled back. While several worlds in Magyar and Dark Nebula regained their lost Class X starports, several more did not:

  • New Sol (Magyar 0503 D501956-7)
  • Jafar (Magyar 0721 D559100-8)
  • Lavik (Magyar 0924 EA9A355-6)
  • Jondrea (Magyar 1004 E545332-5)
  • 023-876 (Magyar 1139 E536400-6)
  • Al-Medif (Magyar 1309 E87A775-5)
  • Yuehtsao (Magyar 1323 D8C989D-9)
  • Ealyurei (Dark Nebula 0120 E100266-7)
  • Ktealau (Dark Nebula 0130 E998123-7)
  • Aiaokheh (Dark Nebula 0206 C434445-9)
  • Ahuawiyoi (Dark Nebula 0607 E8C4544-9)
  • Eakhyehiyye (Dark Nebula 0740 E544643-6)
  • Rormepeni (Dark Nebula 0915 E8B4443-8)
  • Hlehekah (Dark Nebula 1127 E100545-A)
  • Aiheisaus (Dark Nebula 1637 E100443-7)
  • Yetiuaya (Dark Nebula 2340 E768448-7)

All of these worlds were listed as Starport X in Atlas of the Imperium, which was generally held up as the gold standard for the T5SS review. I propose reverting these starports back to X. (Or lacking that, imposing Red Zones.) The result would be more consistent with surrounding areas, and adds interesting texture to the data.

Take New Sol, for example. A high population world with a class D starport is kind of boring, but an interdicted high population world? That’s a lot more interesting.

One interesting note about Tech Levels and interdicted worlds: although Class X starports impose a -4 penalty to Tech Levels, a cursory review of Traveller Map data suggests that worlds with Class X starports apply minimum TLs by atmosphere, a rule introduced in CT Alien Module 1, Aslan. A vacuum world, for example, must maintain a minimum TL of 7, while a world with a insidious atmosphere must maintain a minimum TL of 9. These minimums don’t really apply to worlds engaged with interstellar trade, as necessary tech can presumably be imported. But interdicted worlds, cut off from imports, must be able to produce and maintain protective measures or else perish. The Hard Times milieu shows the grim effects of tech collapse on worlds with unsuitable atmospheres.

More Kickstarter Goodness

This last week I received my rewards from the Traveller Fifth Edition Kickstarter. The T5 edition of Traveller has a long and occasionally fraught history, but I find that this game is a wealth of new and intriguing information about the Official Traveller Universe. I also chose to get a hard copy of Marc Miller’s novel Agent of the Imperium, which applies many T5 concepts to a story that spans the breadth and history of the Third Imperium.

A familiar knock on Traveller is that the setting, rooted in Golden Age science fiction, feels very out-of-date today. But T5 introduces many posthumanist sci fi concepts to the Traveller universe such as consciousness uploading, cloning, geneering, and artificial intelligence. AotI shows how these “new” technologies can be seamlessly integrated into a familiar setting.

The biggest problem with T5, though, has been that the system book was a glorious mess. As one giant brick of a book, earlier iterations of the rules were disorganized, lacking examples, and riddled with errors and contradictions.

This latest Kickstarter is a valiant attempt to clean up and reorganize the sprawling rules into a familiar three-book set: Characters and Combat, Starships, and Worlds of Adventures. The result marks a major leap forward. Breaking the material into three separate books makes it much easier to read and find information. Examples now complement many rules. Almost every page has an interesting new idea, twist on an old one, or Easter egg. The books are physically well made, and come in a very nice slipcase.

All that said, while T5 has come a long way it still has a long way to go. Errors and typos continue to bedevil this edition, which could have really benefited from additional proofreading and editing. The layout is adequate but the artwork is uneven, ranging from pretty rough to excellent.

But most of all, T5 is a big toolset game, and could have learned many lessons from the ultimate toolset game, GURPS. GURPS books always do an excellent job of clearly presenting a wide suite of game options alongside guidance as to how to integrate these rules into different settings. The Traveller Universe spans many different eras and many different technology levels, but T5 provides very little guidance as to what rules might not apply to the Third Imperium setting but would apply to the higher-tech Galaxiad setting.

* * * * *

I backed another Reaper Bones Kickstarter, Reaper Miniatures Bones 5: Escape from Pizza Dungeon. I’ve happily backed all of the Bones Kickstarters to date, and they have proven a great value.

This Kickstarter has probably the strongest Core Set of any campaign yet, containing a gruesome giant zombie, a cloaker, a really great warband of kobolds, a dragon wolf, a useful set of spell effects, and a nifty Thing in the Well. And even though I've already got a bunch of skeletal warriors, the grave kings look fantastic.

I grabbed the Dragonfolk option—I am not really sure why so few dragonfolk miniatures are available commercially, given the popularity of this player character races going all the way back to 4th Edition. I also got the fire giant hellbringer and Arakoth, a Colossal spider. I also added the Dungeon Dwellers expansion set, which has a couple of good looking kenku and yet more kobolds.

The folks at Reaper have clearly absorbed the lessons of each past Kickstarter, and each new campaign has improved significantly on the ones before. The first campaign had a lot of confusing add-ons, and each successive campaign has been tighter and more focused. Bones 5 has several small encounter sets that I suspect will be popular, featuring some terrain pieces along with associated miniatures. I grabbed the “Charnel Pit of the Ghoul Queen,” which looks like it will be a fun set piece for the Great Dungeon. The quality of the Reaper Bones figures also improves: the new Bones Black material is clearly superior to softer original material.

The only downside is that I already have a pretty significant backlog of miniatures to paint. I am a painfully slow painter, and really only have opportunities to paint during a January to April window. The rest of the year there is just too much else to do.

Magyar Sector: Delta Quadrant

The Ceti Cluster, circa -2350.

Delta quadrant of Magyar sector is located at the intersection of Canopus, Aldebaran, and the Solomani Rim. Only a handful of worlds at the spinward end of the Rim Main were ever incorporated into the Ziru Sirka, leaving the quadrant largely open for exploration and development by the Terran Confederation during the Interstellar Wars. The Confederation rapidly established colony worlds in and around the Ceti Cluster, and surveyed the rest of the quadrant.

The defeat of the Ziru Sirka marked the end of the one unifying goal that held the Terran Confederation worlds in Delta quadrant together, and soon they began squabbling with each other. Only subsector L was fully incorporated into the Rule of Man. A significant bloc of worlds outside the Ceti Cluster were repelled by Admiral Hiroshi Estigarribia’s merger of the Terran Confederation and the Vilani Imperium. Some 41 worlds formed the breakaway Terran Confederation of Cygnus.

Although lacking a significant economic or population base—or perhaps because of these factors—the Cygnus Confederation was at first ignored by the Rule of Man government, which was sorely tasked with integrating the vast, newly-won Vilani territories. Fearing that the Second Imperium would eventually turn its attention spinward, the Cygnus Confederation undertook a rapid militarization program. In -1957 the Rule of Man made a half-hearted attempt to reintegrate these worlds, which effected only a brief, inconclusive war followed by a long stalemate.

The Cygnus Confederation of Magyar stayed on a war footing for three more centuries until collapsing in -1612, splintering into petty Reaver kingdoms. Reaver fleets harassed commercial shipping and sacked entire worlds as far away as the Solomani Rim. In -1118 a large Reaver fleet out of Delta quadrant was defeated at Jarslav (Solomani Rim 0123) by the Dingir League aided by ships from the Terran Mercantile Community. This victory marked the end of major Reaver threats. Most of the quadrant subsequently fell below stellar technology levels, and remained there for nearly a thousand years until delegations from the Old Earth Union (and later, the Third Imperium) helped reestablish interstellar trade.

The populations of Delta quadrant are almost entirely Solomani in origin, and the region readily embraced the Solomani movement; missionaries from Alpha Crucis found eager new believers for the Solomani Catholic Church. Beagle, Beta, and Union all sent delegates to the first great Solomani Party Congress on Terra in 685.

During the Solomani Rim War many worlds of the quadrant contributed volunteer troops to the Associated Regional Militia (ARM), a lift infantry corps. Sent to the Solomani Rim during the final stages of the war, the ARM Corps fought at the Battle of Terra. The unit suffered heavy casualties and many survivors spent years in Imperial prisons. Meanwhile Imperial invasion fleets captured the high population, industrial worlds of New Mars subsector and drove as far spinward as Valhalla subsector. Following the armistice, the Imperium withdrew from most Delta quadrant systems outside of New Mars, but did not relinquish the high population worlds of Iatur, Union, Beta, Beagle, and Gerwalk.

Several captured systems refused to capitulate to the Imperium, forcing the Imperial Army to conduct a series of brutal ground campaigns to pacify these worlds. Many occupied worlds spent the subsequent decades under military rule. Reconstruction efforts have been arduous and generally futile: New Mars subsector continues to lag technologically and economically. By some estimates, over the last 100 years nearly 3 billion Solomani loyalists have emigrated from Imperial-occupied worlds to the Confederation, settling neighboring worlds or striking off to the frontiers of Canopus or Aldebaran.

Meanwhile the Imperial nobles assigned to the quadrant have proved unusually ineffective and unpopular. In The Union Affair of 1194, graft and corruption entangled the family and associates of Subsector Duke Noah Elster Kossuth; the scandal triggered anti-Imperial riots throughout New Mars subsector. The Affair forced Duke Noah to be removed from office in 1196 and replaced by Duke Wawebes, a Bwap charged with reforming the subsector.

The following subsector details, provided in Mongoose Traveller format, are derived from my proposed T5 sector data.
