Laniakea: Our Home Supercluster

I’m from the Laniakea supercluster. And you?

Well, I hail from the Boötes Supercluster myself…

Any game where the location of your galactic supercluster is actually a significant data point is what I would call a high-powered Traveller game.


Thanks to the YouTube videos of Isaac Arthur, I can just grasp what a proper galaxy-spanning Imperium would be really like…

(assuming it has suitable galaxy-spanning jump drives, like those described in Allen E. Johnson’s fine GURPS JTAS article “Across the Galaxy”. You can still find & buy the article at Warehouse 23’s GURPS Traveller: The Best of JTAS, Volume 1: a preview of the books’ contents can be found here.)

…for one thing, they are going to be using an immense number of purpose-built habitats, with only a few quadrillions of sophonts living on rockball worlds.

But I don’t have a single clue how to envision a multi-galactic, galactic cluster, or supercluster-spanning Imperium.

(But I can make a decent shot at the hilariously high tech levels involved, thanks to Valiant Game’s Sufficiently Advanced, Sufficiently Advanced, Second Edition, and Chronotech)
