Adventures of the Black Lotus is a sandbox sci-fi based campaign on traveler ships and character construction. that I started about 5 years ago. I spent alot of time setting up the background, the mysteries and conspiracies.

I will whittle the 20 minute intro down to a paragraph, so you wont loose interest.


Humanity Spread out over the heavens. For 300 years over 20 systems, the clouds of war ebbed and flowed.  When it all ended you had 10 alliance worlds, 3 independent and 3 axis.

Some for the systems are the boarders of know space, now adays no one goes beyond the boarders. The tehcnology is Jump1, however the players, ahem, the heroes have jump 1.5 technology.


There are no aliens discovered yet. There are relics and digs. No Ancient technology. No Varger, or Cat people.  I did promise you mysteries and conspiracies and they abound.

My next blog will contain characters for herogames, Traveller equivalent and possibly one more game system... Well no I dont want to spoil it.

Heres a listing of of info related to the little dots on the map above.
