Your thoughts on my idea for a unique Traveller campaign set 500 years after The Battle of Drinax

marshalljames1

Over the last 5 weeks I've been so bored that I've been working on A idea for  a unique Traveller campaign set 500 years after The Battle of Drinax, which Drinax won and The Campaign will start on The 25/7/1,661. How much will that change things?, here's full info on what Drinax will be like at the start of the campaign

Worlds

Regulars

Drinax, Asim, Torpol, Clarke, Traefar, Blue, Marduk, Exocet, Tech-World, Neumann, Simok, Falcon, Acrid, Argona, Inurin, Sperle, Albe, Fantasy, Hilfer, Iroioah, Paal and Pourne

Gained via means that were very unconventional yet 100% legal

Kteiroa, Ogma, Cordan, Byrni, Thebus, The World, Ace, Halka, Heath, Torrance, Caraz, Eleson, Nabeth, Dpres, Keaih, Tyokh, Iligan, Falcon, Arunisiir, Tanith, Saliff, Pandora, Boulder, Blue, Borite and Exe

Others

The 68 Worlds of The Floranni League, The 28 worlds of The Strend Cluster, 11 Worlds that during The 5th Frontier World defected from The Imperium and joined Drinax, 11 Worlds that belong to A Clan that during The Events of Virus deserted The Hierate and joined Drinax, The 7 worlds of The Belgardian, joined Drinax, , The 4 Worlds of The Meghan Consortium and The 4 Worlds of The Senlis Feodorate

Via conquest

The 23 Worlds Worlds that The Glorious Empire had at the time Drinax conquered it

Also

All in all that means that Drinax consists of 204 Planets that are spread across 199 Star Systems, 23 Sub-Sectors and 4 Sectors

Ships

The Starguards 6,357 Ships that range from 100 tons to 50,000 tons

A Strend Fleet of 3,865 Ships that range from 300 tons of 28,000 tons

The Belter Part of The Regional Fleet of 5,256 Belter Ships that range from 100 tons to 19,000 tons

Brynis Fleet of 6,360 Ships that range from 300 tons to 33,000 tons

The Strends Fleet of 8,466 Ships that range from 600 tons to 40,0000 tons

The Regular Part of The Regional Fleet of 7,039 Ships that range from 100 tons to 25,000 tons

Tech-World, its the only system in Drinax that isn't 1 of the 23 Regional Capitals whose planetary navy is powerful enough to deserve being mentioned by itself and it has 3,155 Ships that range from 100 tons to 11,400 tons

The 1 Personal Fleet each of The 23 Sub-Sector Dukes, legally they must all control no more and no less then 200 Ships that individually range from 400 tons to 10,300 tons tons that have a combined mass of 1,478,000 tons

The 1 personal Fleet each of The 4 Sector Arch-Dukes legally they must all control no more and no less then 400 Ships that individually range from 800 tons to 20,600 tons tons that have a combined mass of 2,951,4200 tons

I will point out that the listed fleets of both the 23 Sub-Sector Dukes and The 4 Sector Arch-Dukes are only what they personally command, they command 1,000's, often 10,000's, of more but those are indirectly commanded

1 Floranni Fleet of 5,703 Ships that range from 400 tons to 35,000 tons

The 1,620 Ships that are commanded by descendants of The Pirates of Drinax that range from 100 tons to 40,000 tons

The fleet that was founded by Petyr Vallis and is commanded by 1 of his descants of 1,747 Ships that range from 400 tons to 35,400 tons

1 Fleet of 4,512 assorted Ships that are all entirely crewed by the descendants of Aslan Ihatei that joined Drinax in return were all given quite a lot of land that range from 100 tons to 35,000 tons

1 fleet of 5,184 Ships that are all entirely crewed by the descendants of Slave Raiders from Ogma

Capital Ships

Their are 84 of them that range from 55,000 tons to 110,000 tons

26, 4 of which were got thanks to The Deals, 2 were captured during The Battle of Drinax, 2 were bribes to cover up Kronds Crimes and 1 was a bribe to cover up The GeDeCo's Crimes, , that belong to Drinaxian

1 each or 23 in total that are personally commanded by The 23 Sub-Sector Dukes

9, 2 were captured during The Battle of Drinax, 1 was a bribe to cover up Kronds Crimes and 1 was a bribe to cover up The GeDeCo's Crimes, of them belong to The Descendants of The Pirates of Drinax

3 each or 12 in total that are personally commanded by The 4 Sector Arch Sector Dukes

4 belong to The Strend

3 belong to Bryni

2 each belong to Floranni and The Aslan Clan that when The Virus broke out allied itself and its world to Drinax

1 each belong to Vallis, Ogma and Tech-World

So that gives Drinax a total of 63,071 Regular Ships that range from 100 tons to 50,000 tons and 84 Capital Ships that range from 55,000 tons to 110,000 tons

Population stuff

Roughly 222,844,936,400 civilians

Roughly 101,099,722,800 part time soldiers

And

Roughly 44,604,010,500 full time soldiers

Starports that have the capacity to build jump capable ships

70 Class C that can all build Ships massing up to 300 ton ships

28 Class B that can all only build ships massing up to 3,700 tons

6 Class A that can all build ships massing 14,200 ton

The deals that were struck either shortly before or shortly after The Battle of Drinax

A mere 38.49% tax on all good passing through

But in return Drinax gets the following

11 Class C, 4 Class B and 1 Class A Starports each from The Hierate, The Zhodanni, The Imperium and The Hivers

1 free 75,000 ton Planet Class Cruiser or the equivalent each from The Hierate, The Zhodanni, The Imperium and The Hivers

Full and unconditional pardons for The Pirates of Drinax and their friends, followers, allies, minions, employees and underlings

The right to buy any goods passing through without the person carrying them being able to refuse, but Drinax is legally obliged to give them a fair price

1 thing I like is that to for A Civilian that wants to immigrate to Drinax that owns any Military Ship they must either give it to The Navy of the planet their settling on

On the bright side they must give you its market value and every year you get paid the same salary its captain does, or grant you the right to control it in defence of the planet you settled on, either way you get A Captains Yearly Wage

Luckily as long as the person that gives you permission has the right to they don't even have to be in the same sector as the planet the owners now living on

A few examples are as follows, all of them Drinaxian Ships and all of them were created by me created just for this campaign

Up to 300 tons, example The Harrier Mark 2, A Planetary Baron

Up to 800 tons, example The Rorix Mark 2. A System Earl

Up to 1,000 tons, example The Wyvern Mark 2. A Subsector Duke

Up to 1,400 tons, examples The Wyvern Mark 3 or The Dragoon Mark. Any royal, the official records say that even people that are only royalty by marriage or adoption can grant permission but in truth they can't

Up to 2,500 tons, example The Drinaxian Fleet Carrier. The Crown Prince or Princess

Up to 4,200 tons, example A Medium Frigate that Drinax designed that's famous for being The most powerful Medium Frigate ever build that wasn't build by The Ancient. The King or Queen

Just remembered something. Any Noble that grants permission for ordinary people to own A Drinax Warship doesn't have to grant the same people permission to own A Weaker Ship

For example A Sub Sector Duke could grant A Ordinary permission to own A 800 ton Wyvern Mark 2 but that doesn't mean he has to give permission for the same person to own A 200 ton Harrier Mark 2
