History & Background (Dossier)
I've been a Traveller player, on and off, since 1982. I especially enjoy designing starships. While I own books from all of the various Traveller rule sets, I usually use the classic "Little Black Books" and add in the parts I like from later books.

Favorite Wiki Pages
I designed logos for the many corporations and megacorporations listed in the Traveller Wiki. I tried to avoid duplicating/replacing logos that exist in the Traveller canon (but may have done so inadvertently on occasion anyway). This started out as a few Traveller-related memes, but it grew into a monster project. Currently, I have uploaded and linked over 500 logos to the appropriate wiki pages.
