Greek Alphabet

Greek Alphabet

It is quite possible in the modern age to be quite educated without having been exposed to the Greek alphabet, since it is going to get some use in our Star Trek games, I thought I’d give a quick reference guide to cut down on moments of confusion. Greek letters are used to denote the brighter stars within each of the traditional constellations. In most constellations, the brightest star (as seen from Earth) is designated Alpha and the next brightest Beta, etc.; however for various reasons, this isn’t always true, as the apparent luminosity may have changed over the centuries or there may have been confusion of multiple stars as a single star, which are no longer lined up by our perspective from Earth, there may also be some cases of simple error.

I have been running games since I was ten years old and have always enjoyed stories of hijinks and high adventure as well as the occasional creepy crawl into the shadowy abyss. I enjoy a wide variety of games and love to have a table filled with laughter.
