Massilia Sector is old and well-established with a heavy Terran influence in its many indigenous cultures.
  • This is a rich trade sector with a large population and a several-thousand year record of civilization.

Meta-History & Background[edit]

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

Description (Specifications)[edit]

While the sector is not rich in native NILs, it does have a very powerful Minor Human Race, the Geonee in it, who have long been an independent and technologically advanced culture.

  • They have been quarreling with every other human race that has come through the sector for millennia and despite biological facts on the books, insist that they are a different species than other branches of Humaniti.
  • The politics of the Geonee are always at the front of Massilia and any conqueror needs to heed their court, so to speak.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Empires come and go, but the Geonee remain.

  • Their culture is built upon many secrets, much deliberate caution, some say paranoia, and a rock solid belief in their own abilities.
  • Many wonder at the apparent ease with which the Geonee deal with the enigmatic Droyne and Chirper worlds. There is a secret waiting to be unraveled in that simple fact.
  • Many petitions for an Autonomous Geonee Zone have yet to be granted. There is a story under the surface of those facts as well.
  • Many forget about the other Minor Human Race in the sector, the Kaggushus, who keep a low profile, seemingly intentionally.
  • Massilia is largely a culturally monolithic sector, whom many have settled in, and yet never really looked under the surface.

Historical Eras[edit]

General Overview: No information yet available.

History-Era: Mileu 1100[edit]

Technological progress has been rapid on most planets, and regression to pre-industrial levels is non-existent.

Thus, virtually any world can trade for highly advanced items such as:

  • The first artificially intelligent robots,
  • Global terraforming equipment,
  • Pocket holovideo recorders, and...
  • Neural stun weapons.

These last are becoming favorite police weapons on high-tech worlds, since they allow capture without injury and can be safely used even in hostage situations.

  • Some of these items are terribly expensive, but this is no deterrent to large shipping corporations cutting deals.
  • Buyers elsewhere will pay even higher prices for the best merchandise.

Major Historical Events Timeline: 1116[edit]

These are some of the more important historical events that have affected this sector:





Politics & Diplomacy (Interstellar Relations)[edit]

Before the Vilani arrived, the area was a jungle of minor states that somehow largely got along with each other. The Droyne of those early days were far more outgoing and once ran a wide-ranging trade network, before the Ziru Sirka destroyed what once was and replaced it with the Bureaux system.

  • Trade and diplomatic relations never quire returned to those earlier, more idyllic days. Now powers came and went, the area survived the Long Night, and generally grew more distant.
  • Some of these ancient records describe all sorts of things that no longer openly exist, a plethora of alien civilizations with many NILs, vast numbers or surviving Ancients facilities, and a number of other legends...
  • Who knows if these stories contain any truth?
  • Whatever may be, the surviving polities of the region all remain wary of conquerors and many Geonee, on one hand, are loyal Imperialists with long, loyal records, while, at the same time, the Geonee have never hidden their open dissent to the heavy hand of the Third Imperium.
