While I’m Working

I got about halfway through my next period of classical history, the late classical period, when I fell down a rabbit hole. An e-mail message on a list I follow reawoke an old interest in SF role playing, the Traveller, in particular, which I had set aside because I was unhapply with 2-dimensional mapping. I had tried out a program named Astrosynthesis, and mapped out about 100 nearby stars, but set this project aside for a while. I still have it. I also tried out some mapping on the Cosmographer addition to my Campaign Cartographer, and there fell into a problem where I couldn’t figure out how to save certain changes I made. This is where I ask for help, I think.
