Space Patrol: SAP 217

SAP 217 is typical of Sector Administration Posts, centrally located space stations that house the sector's government services. While SAPs primarily function as trade and communications hubs, each also houses an office of Patrol administrators who coordinate the ships and personnel assigned to their sector. When a Patrol officer requests assistance (a benefit of Rank), they generally go through the local SAP.

Here are statistics for SAP 217 in the GURPS City Stats format.

Dungeon Crate, May 2016

For my birthday last month, my friends got me a subscription to DungeonCrate.  This service is the RPG-focused entry in the current "crate" craze, where you pay a subscription fee and a box of themed stuff is sent to your home monthly, quarterly, or whatever. Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.
