The Earth & Beyond Storyline Resource document says: "Whenever possible, key real-world events have been woven into the EnB Universe." With that, I'd like to suggest the following dwarf planets, asteroids and other Trans-Neptunian Objects (hereafter TNOs) to be put into sectors for flavor, Explorable (XP) or not, into Ceres/Thule, the three Asteroid Belt sectors, Pluto and Charon sector and Akeron's Gate (supposedly in the Kuiper Belt of Sol). Here is the list I found: Eris and Dysnomia (currently Eris is a nav-bouy in Ceres/Thule sector and as such is in the wrong part of the solar system. Pluto and Charon (already present) Nix, Hydra, Styx and Kerebos MakeMake Haumea, Namaka and Hi'iaka Sedna 2007 OR10 Quaoar and Weywot Orcus and Vanth Again, I can think of missions, simple nav-Explore XP awards for surveying these TNOs, or just plain space objects with no nav attached. It would be fun and may spark an educational desire to look the object up on Wikipedia or Google it. I noticed there is a TNO named Thule, yet no asteroid or dwarf planet named Thule comes up in Wikipedia. Is this a storyline object or other? Finally, I don't know if the Ceres/Thule sector is meant to open in any part of the overarching metaplot, but if not, can we see it fleshed out and inserted into play? One week, just after we went Live, the sector was accidentally open (the gate to Ceres/Thule being funcitonal). Wyverlunder and I surveyed the sector. This sparked my imagination as there were no mobs as of yet. The sector features a cameo in my next book, so I thought I'd ask about it. Live from Cartography at NET-7 SOL, this is the Pakkrat.
