Space Patrol: Index

The following is an index of all of my posts on campaign notes for GURPS Space Patrol. I will try to keep this post up to date when I add more.

Characters

These sample characters are designed to fill out the crew of the SPS-2997 Kiran Bedi, a typical Jordan-class Patrol ship. They provide examples of all of the occupation templates.
