Near Space Map


The focus here is more on fantasy games and maps than on science-fiction. But, this is well worth pointing out, even if it’s not my work: a new map of the nearest stars to the Earth.


The map of The Closest Stars corresponds very closely to the near-space poster map that was included with the Universe role-playing game by SPI.  The Closest Stars is a 10 parsec radius; the SPI Universe map is a 30 light-year radius, so they’re pretty comparable in the area they cover.

I haven’t done a comparison between the two to see how compatible they are.  But, I assume one could adapt and interpolate the basic information from the Universe map, to be able to use the new one.
