Hi.


Recently, I saw the update on the site which highlights the Omega Octant - very nice!

However, the only reference to the Magellanic setting (as featured in Module C5) is a link to the map of the Cloud... and one which has 'Yrol' written as 'Yorl' instead (based on the way it's mostly written in C5, at least).


If/when there is time, could a section be added to the site introducing the Magellanic Cloud as an additional setting?

Looks good - but just a couple of minor things:

*It refers to the empires, but doesn't give the empire names (as in Baduvai Imperium, Eneen Protectorates, Maghadim Hives, Uthiki Harmony, Chomak Community, Yrol Septs, Neutral Worlds - while the last of those may be a political fiction cooked up by the Eneen and Baduvai, it is still, technically, a distinct authority), but rather the dominant species within each.

*The other factions have 'the' before their names, but the Baduvai do not.

*'Uthiki' is written as 'Uthicki'.

Corrections sent to Eric.

It was an on-the-fly first shot without looking anything up and I don't think I was THAT far off.

Thanks for the update - but just a tiny thing: the NW are more commonly referred to as 'the Neutral Worlds' (initially the name of the joint Eneen-Baduvai authority in the region, but used in general to refer to the main area of operations for the Maghadim seeking to burst out of the Core).


The page looks great, though! Here's hoping someone other than myself finds it to be of interest...

I can't help but be interested in The Cloud...
