Making some star charts for a "near" future space RPG. The 8 nearest bright stars and their neighbors.

I learned about a quintuple star system nearby (V1054 Ophiuchi) and all I can think about is how to calculate the habitable zones. I think there might be four of them. Maybe 5, but 0.4 AU is a pretty tight orbit.

I've been playing with mapping nearby stars in 3D space, and found I could do some neat things with Power BI.

Here's an interactive map. If you select a system in the Source drop down, it filters to just the systems within 3 parsecs of that system. I've only got star systems to about 16 light years from earth so far. Probably fill out the list to about 20 ly in time.

I realized I could make a local star map using Power BI.

I've been trying to keep away from kickstarters, but Pendragon is an absolute classic masterpiece, so seeing more material for it is awesome.

I don't know if anyone else will use it, but my Twitter bot is great for npc ideas.

Kickstarter arrival. Looking forward to trying it out, but I doubt it'll usurp 100 AD as my favorite +postworldgames jim pinto game.

For no particular reason, I made a twitter bot that generates npc descriptions. I may need a better list of occupations though.
