Gvurrdon Sector is one of the power houses of the Vargr Extents.

Meta-History & Background[edit]

Gvurrdon Sector was designed by J. Andrew Keith, Marc W. Miller and John Harshman and appears in Alien Module 3: Vargr (GDW, 1984).

  1. In 1984, Classic Traveller Alien Module 3: Vargr was published.
  2. In 1990, MegaTraveller Alien - Vilani & Vargr was published.
  3. In 2002, The Gvurrdon Sector Campaignbook, a particularly well done fan-created resource, was published.
  4. In 2012, Mongoose Traveller: Gvurrdon Sector was published.

  • As of 2017, this sector is being input and is undergoing review and development.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The area is rich in Vargr cultures, cuisines, and experimental societies. Interstellar society evolves so quickly in this region that traders often find their notes from recent trade expeditions already obsolete by the time of their next foray. Widespread, organized development of the region has never occurred. Everything in the sector happens piecemeal and pennywise.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Only the most adventurous scouts from the Ziru Sirka ever made it this far and organized Vilani settlement of this areahas never occurred. The Vargr have occupied the area as long as local records indicate. Exact Zhodani involvement with the region remains mysterious. Imperial traders now range the area, but that is a relatively new phenomenon.

Politics & Diplomacy (Interstellar Relations)[edit]

The area is a hot bed of Zhodani-Vargr interstellar relations. The Imperium is new to the scene and eager to cultivate interests. The chaotic nature of Vargr politics keeps the region in a constant state of flux, preventing conquerors from making lasting footholds. Some bastions of stability remain though despite Vargr nature. The area is quite complex, diverse, and both free and desirable by Vargr standards.

Worlds, Systems & Sectors (Political Astrography)[edit]


Gvurrdon remains an astrographic region of medium stellar density with relatively larger areas of void between populated clusters of civilizations. This makes it very difficult for J-1 starships to freely operate. A widespread system of jump bridges would be prohibitively expensive as well as beyond the organizational capabilities of the relatively unorganized polities of this region of the Vargr Extents. So the prices of interstellar goods within this area remains higher than average. It takes quite a brave and determined merchant to make it in this area.
