There is now a Subsector Generator for the Hostile setting. Try it!
Lancaster Subsector made with the subsector editor at Cepheus Journal, and then edited using GIMP. (2170×3020 pixels.)
The coreward side of the subsector belongs to the Pennsylvaani Confederation and the rimward side belongs to the Free State of Maryland. There is an ongoing cold war between these two pocket empires and there are various trade embargoes in effect.
On the trailing side of the subsector is Philadelphia subsector with the very important planet Philadelphia. Most long-range trade to Philadelphia (in Lancaster subsector) goes through Baltimore and then in the Maryland part of the Subsector. This leaves a lot of opportunities for Free Traders in the backwater Pennsylvaani part of the subsector.
The total population of the subsector is close to 11 billion (Most of them live on Baltimore). The highest tech-level is 12 at Baltimore.

The Random Subsector Generator has lots of options to choose from, so that you can generate subsectors that matches your own setting. If you still want to change something, then you can use the Subsector Editor.
For historical settings we have an article about smuggling and piracy in the 18th century and some cog travelling in the middle ages (both from the editorial team.)
For a modern setting, there is a Chinese infantry squad by Ewan Spence.
For science fiction settings we have two articles about close stars. 40 Eridani by Randy McDonald and Altair Subsector by Neil Lucock. Neil also wrote an article about Ship Damage. For the new (Dune inspired) Science Fiction Setting Godstar from Zozer Games, Neil Lucock has supplied a short adventure. Finally we also have part 2 of Helzr’s Recovery that started in issue #001.
