Ijad Nomadic Traders

Postby Grass4hopper » Mon Mar 03, 2014 7:23 pm

I have an idea for a ship or small collection of ships inhabited by Ijad that travel between friendly transit gates are traders. To me this seem like a viable scenario, the Ijad community on the ship/ships could have the close relationships Ijad so value.

Does this fit well within the setting?

This sounds awesome. They're an independent treasure fleet!

Oh, yes. Yes it does. You could argue it's the lifestyle best suited to Ijad philosophy, even.
I worked on the setting and mecha design, but my opinions are personal. I am not the fun police.

I really, really, really like this idea... I'm tempted to borrow it!

Please do. I have no plans to develop the idea further at this time, but I still think it's a cool idea : )

I'm planning on making my Violet song of Falling Starlight and my Roisin Dubh nomads. Violet Song being more curious and open to trade, Roisin Dubh being more aggressive towards the Solar Union Citizens and the Free Colonies, taking the resources from weaker groups.
