Traveller: The Third Imperium: Reft SectorContinuing the exploration of the Third Imperium, Reft Sector provides new ground for your players to explore, colonise and capitalise! Part of the Great Rift, Reft Sector is a true wilderness, with opportunities abounding for lucky or skilled Travellers – or those on the run from more civilised space. With a complete history and every subsector and planet covered, Reft Sector opens fresh ground for Traveller players, allowing them to interact with the inhabitants of these new worlds.
Reft Sector is an astrographical oddity. It contains two groups of stars, of relatively standard density, separated by a wide rift. Much of this rift is entirely empty, as the name suggests, but deep within it lie two relatively dense subsectors. These were settled by sublight expeditions from Earth and remained isolated from the rest of Charted Space for most of their history.
The history of the region since that time has been troubled, with periods of war interspersed with relative peace. The existence of many small powers, each with distinct cultures and political systems, led to the creation of a shifting web of alliances and rivalries. As a result, it is likely that at least one dispute or conflict is ongoing in the Islands at any given time, and other powers are on the verge of being drawn in or are offering assistance of one form or another.
There is money to be made in the Islands and via them, but the hazards are considerable.
