Spaceport 69 is my new home brew Savage World setting. It's also going to be a miniature and terrain project. My plan is to make it a living project. Each building I build for the project will proceed on a logical timeline. The first building will be the spaceport hub, the next perhaps a canteena or hotel. The timeline will also fit into the setting time line. The first few adventures will center around the hub then when the next building/business is built it will be incorporated into the setting timeline and added to the adventures. This way the terrain project will grow as the setting grows. Each building and spaceship I build for the project will also get a crew/staff of NPCs and miniatures to represent them.
I'm going to start building the main part of the spaceport first. The Virgin Galactic hub. The spaceport itself will be a kind of truck stop in space. The setting itself will be 100-200 years in the future and will be based on current history. I thought using Virgin Galactic as the original corporate sponsors for the spaceport would at a tie to real world history and give a feeling of a more realistic future. All the buildings will be playable inside and out so my goal is to make them seem futuristic without making the construction too complicated.
I've been collecting various space ship toys and models over the last few years with the intention of making a spaceport for them. Here is a shot of some of my ships in various stages of completion. These ships will represent either permanent residents of the spaceport or frequent visitors. I'm planning on adding a couple larger ships, about twice the size of the bigger ships shown here.
So that's the project. I plan to get a good start on it in the next couple months then I'll be adding new elements in the future as I'm able to get them done.
