Here is a first and really sketchy look at the worlds of the Draconis Cluster.
The Draconis Cluster is a setting for space operatic adventures with dozens of alien races interacting with each other. One thing to keep in mind is that tech level for jump drives is different from standard Traveller. In the Draconis Cluster, jump dives are first developed at Tech Level 10, with jump 2 being developed at Tech Level 12, jump 3 at Tech Level 14 and jump 4 not developed as of yet. There is still a lot of work left before this is completed. I plan to add a page on some of the alien races. So keep checking in to see how things are shaping up. And If you have any ideas, questions or comments please feel free to let me know.
