Alpha Quadrant Map

I finished a revised Alpha Quadrant Map to include the new races plus a several Omega Quadrant races (since it is unlikely that we'll use Omega empires in that setting).

The map includes:

Federation
Klingon
Romulan
Kzinti
Lyran
Frax
Carnivon
WYN
Maesron
Peladine
Borak
Hydran
Vudar
Seltorian
Orion
Tholian
Nicozian
Gorn
Paravian
ISC
Argonian
Kolaghr
Hiver
Vari

That's a total of 24 empires. I have the map if anyone is interested in it.

I'd like to take a look at

I'd like to take a look at what you have for a map.

I just emailed it to you

Some things were changed on purpose, but generally it is very similar.

Me too

Any thought about the Shimmerans and Dalian Sway?

Just sent

Take a look and see where you'd put them. Then put the map on paint and add it and then see how it works.

Orion

Need to figure out a good standard HW for the Orions.

Maesron/Carnivon

The way I built this map was to have the Kzinti and Lyrans in the traditional spots, the Carnivon pretty much in one of the locations in C6 and then add the Maesrons to the same side (west end of the quadrant). Traditionally, the Maesron are an alliance of three races, one being the Vulpa which are canine in nature. They are similar to the Carnivons, though taller I believe. And their Tachyon Missiles are very similar in nature and design to Death Bolts. So I thought that would be an interesting dynamic as I'm considering a power block between the four (Kzinti, Lyran, Carnivon and Maesron). Considering that at least the Kzin, Lyran and Carns are suppose to have a common ancestor, in an alternate run up to a GW, it would be plausible for an alliance to form.

That would be a powerful block of empires to start with.

Neutral Hydrans

I can see the Hydrans being a neutral race to everyone too. They only live on the methane giants that no one else can. Maybe have a defense pact with host empires in the systems they planetary right granted... with everyone... and everyone understands this.

Revised Alpha Octant Map

I've redone the map of the Alpha Octant. The normal cannon races are pretty much exactly as per the normal map, taking into consideration the revisions done for the Vudar, Carnivons and Paravians officially. I've added several Omega races that we like as we would probably never use them as Omega in-and-of-themselves and I think they convert over to Alpha nicely. I've added one Companion Games race, the Argonians in the same place that CG's puts them in. I've also added one 'simulator' race, the Frax as an actual empire.

The map includes:

Federation
Klingon
Romulan
Kzinti
Lyran
LDR
Frax
Carnivon
WYN
Maesron
Peladine
Borak
Hydran
Vudar
Seltorian
Tholian
Nicozian
Gorn
Paravian
ISC
Argonian
Kolaghr
Hiver
Vari

If you look at the official galactic map, the Alpha Octant contains 4 total sectors. Only three are used officially and the fourth is the Lyran Far Stars and the Hydran Lost Colonies. I used that sector for several races and used a small section to the east of the Paravians and ISC for the rest.

I sent this to several folks already for review. If anyone else would like to see it give me a shout. :)
