Description / Specifications[edit]

Gembolia Subsector is a largely unpopulated and undeveloped wilderness. Some worlds within the region have never had an intelligent being visit them.

  • Its systems comprise part of the Outer Loop, a ring of jump-3-accessable systems that surround the Hudson Expanse rift region.
  • The resources of the subsector are for the most part untapped.

Note that the stars as depicted are representative. Any star, no matter what its size, is a mere speck within the hex it occupies.

  • Ordinary main sequence stars can barely be seen from even a hex away.
  • Huge, intensely luminous giant stars can be seen from across the subsector and far beyond.

Rift Regions[edit]

Two rift areas lie within the subsector: the Gembolian Void and the Hudson Expanse.
