Garnett Elliott* asked me a good question. Am I going to include Fuzzies in my Space Viking inspired setting? That me made take a close look at what I'm doing. How close to the fiction do I want to adhere?
I knew from the start I couldn't do a straight conversion. To much history, background and differences from Traveller for me to want to do that. At first I thought I would incorporate some of the planets, names and history into the setting. But I need to decide how much to
steal borrow. Or do I just go for the vibe.
At this point I'm thinking I will just go for the feeling of Space Viking with a few bits and pieces built in. Maybe a few key planets. An alien race or two, like the Fuzzies. Then again, it might be "inspired by". I'll have to see how it goes as I work on it. Because honestly I've been vacillating between the two on an almost daily basis. And it will probably end up somewhere in between.
So, I guess I don't have an answer to G-Man's question yet.
