The Ugodeldu Market - A Location For Your Old School Space Opera Role Playing Game

The Ugodeldu Market 
There are places found within the cracks of stellar society. Places not spoken of in polite society where men may or lose fortunes depending on their cargoes!
The station is the perfect place to requip, sell, trade, or get into trouble. 

Abandoned in the late 30th century this space station became the property of a group of spacers who were headed up by a wealthy though disgraced merchant prince.

Prince Durirthiarm was a minor noblemen who was caught within a compromising position with the wife of one of his fellow Empire nobles. Faced with a duel of honor or death. He choose instead to flee & became the head of a notorious band of spacers.
Using a vast web of connections & back owed favors the prince set up the market within the confines of this abandon space station orbiting Earth 5. 
The market services as a clearing house for all manner of illicit & legal cargoes.

This market was done for a Star Trek/Cities In Space Mash up. It might work well with something like Terminal Space. This original D&D Star Trek rules set is cheesy & right up my alley. A perfect blend of the Star Trek mythos & the cheese factor. You can find that Here


  1. Fun & very well Done. This place has a lot going for it, and it would work well in just about any sort of Space Opera style game--and the way you use this site to bring across Trek-derived tech is a fun hook in itself.

  2. Thanks for the comments garrisonjames! I need to return to my roots with Terminal Space soon! I really love James Blish so this was a natural for me. I ran a pretty extensive campaign for over a year or so! There will be more Star Trek inspired stuff soon!
