Space Map Making

There is no denying it: maps are cool. For a sim, they can be very useful. They might provide context clues to players. Two systems near each other will have a different relationship than two that are far apart. A system alone deep in unexplored space will have a different history than one along the Cardassian border. And what about one caught between the two empires you’ve invented for your game? A star map can help visualize all these things, and as I said, they’re just cool. In this panel, Taral will show you one way to make a space map for your sim using the free software GIMP.

Using Departments and Locations Other Than the Bridge

How many times is medical and engineering and science forgotten during a sim because the action is all on the bridge. The senior officers can have an excuse to be on the bridge, but the rest are sitting twiddling their thumbs until there is something to do. So how do you feature departments that are forgotten because it's more fun to have space battles? Come and find out.

Rule of Cool

Sometimes we seek out those intangibles that make characters, stories and other things cool. But how much is too much?

Creating Custom Races

It's not particularly easy to create a new race to use for a plot, much less one that may come up again as a recurring 'series.' It's even harder to make one up and get it approved in most Star Trek Roleplaying Organizations today because of rhetoric, or too many people being burned by a player abusing it, or perhaps, just not giving things a chance. There are a number of sure fire ways to get more than a glance and instant rejection. We'll talk about a few of those today.

Crossover Sims

Captain's log: We found a space anomaly that has created something of a problem for us, or rather it found us and we are meant to be here according the universe. Now we have to figure out who we can trust and how we can get back home. Diary Entry: I was out hunting, as usual and ran across a small group of people that looked like a boy band or rejects from a sleepover and they asked for help. How is a vampire hunt supposed to help people from space? Does this sound like a fun crossover? Come and find out how to make it happen.
