Glimmerdrift Reaches Sector is a far off frontier of the Third Imperium, in which:

Meta-history & Background[edit]

Glimmerdrift Reaches Sector was designed by Marc W. Miller and appears in the Classic Traveller Atlas of the Imperium (GDW, 1984).

  • It was refined by Martin J. Dougherty and Hunter Gordon and appears in Gateway to Destiny (QuickLink Interactive, 2006).
    • The data for this sector was originally published by Judges Guild in 1981. After Judges Guild lost their Traveller licence, the information in the Glimmerdrift Reaches supplement was de-canonized and overwritten.
    • The new astrogation data was created and released as part of the GENII / Sunbane data. This "newer" data was updated as part of QLI's Gateway to Destiny book.
    • The fact there is two sources of data for this sector has led to confusion, but the increasing rarity of the Judges Guild material has reduced this confusion over the years.

  1. In 1981, Glimmerdrift Reaches was published.
  2. In 1984, Atlas of the Imperium was published.
  3. In 1984, K'kree (Alien Module) was published.
  4. In 1986, Hivers (Alien Module) was published.
  5. In 1990, Alien - Vilani & Vargr was published.
  6. In 2004, Gateway to Destiny was published.

  • As of Summer 2017, this sector is slowly programmed into the Traveller RPG Wiki.
  • It has been T5 Second Survey reviewed and updated to T5 standards.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This sector has a long record of sophont civilization although little of it appears to be connected to the Ancients. However, many other civilizations have left considerable ruins, artifacts, and other remnants of prior peoples. Treasure hunters are known to flock to the area in search of hidden treasures. Several of the older sophont species in the region tell tales of secret caches of starships, technology, and other valuables hidden away in the nebulae and unexplored corners of the sector.

Politics & Diplomacy (Interstellar Relations)[edit]

Despite the presence of a large number of squabbling pocket empires, the area has achieved an unexpected level of peace and prosperity. Local customs and traditions confine combat to largely ritualized forms sparing local populations from the worst ravages of war. Many fear that as the K’kree expand spinward, they will disrupt this fragile peace. While pirates and corsairs are not uncommon in the region, most trade convoys travel under heavy escort and a major convoy has not been lost in many decades.

SectorGlimmerdrift.jpg

This astrographic region is sparsely populated with a low stellar density. Numerous unchartered worlds are located throughout the region and a very large number of radio-opaque nebulae have long frustrated IISS efforts to better chart the area. The Delphi Rift is a significant barrier to interstellar traffic in the spinward-coreward area of the sector.
