Good Galaxy Map for GM

Recommended Posts

Im starting out as a game master and I am searching for a galaxy map that I can print out so that both I and my players know where we are in this massive universe. Thanks in advance :)

So...Hoth is smack dab right on the Corellian Trade Spine?  Something tells me the Alliance doesn't really understand what "out of the way" means. :)

 

If you look at a more detail map of that sector, Bespin and Hoth are actually on a little 'side spur'; not directly on the trade spine.  That said, it's still a little close to a major trade route to be calling it 'out of the way'.

I don't remember them ever stating that Hoth was "out of the way".  Merely a comment that the Hoth System was "devoid of human forms".  I think that being on a minor spur, in the Outer Rim, and uninhabited led the Rebellion to assume that they wouldn't be found.  Hoth didn't have major resources, or any other reason someone would stop and look around.

Its the equivalent of a clear field a couple miles off a highway.  Its known.  Its explored.  No one is supposed to be there.  Maybe someone drives by and looks, but if they don't see your tent, they don't realize you are there.

In any case, the map was made long after the movie and most of which was likely without GL's input. So I wouldn't sweat so much about Hoth's location as long as it is near Cloud City.

I said that as a joke when I saw where Hoth was on the map.  I guess I figured that a secret rebel base wouldn't be sitting so close to a major trade route.
