100 Hooks and Rumours to Hear in or about the Glorious Empire


When asking around in the spaceport bar or anywhere else, Travellers may overhear rumours about events on other worlds. They may be insuring about a different matter entirely and stumble across additional information by accident. This supplement has 100 rumours that Travellers could hear. They can be used as misdirection, background information or as potential adventure hooks. The rumours in this supplement cover the Glorious Empire in the Trojan Reach, including current and former worlds of the Empire.

Here are some sample results:

  • It's rumoured that one of the generals of the Glorious Empire has been speaking to one of the clans of the Hierate. The assumption would be that they are trying to ensure their position after the fall of the Empire by aiding in its fall. If true, this is not the sort of behaviour that would be considered to be remotely acceptable, and any general discovered doing such would no doubt be executed. So, it's to be expected that secrecy would be paramount in such an operation.
  • It's rumoured that the Glorious Empire suffered problems with some of its human dog soldiers recently, as there are reports that some of the units attempted to rebel against the Aslan. Though they were put down, the dog soldiers managed to cause quite a bit of damage before being stopped.
  • Keawoaw is a binary system with two red dwarf stars, one of which has started giving off flares. There have been rumours that the research station in the system caused the flares, using technology acquired from the Darrians. This is unlikely; however, another rumour suggests that the research base is built on an Ancients site, one which had similar technology to the Darrians' Star Trigger, and that this technology is being experimented with.
  • Khau was conquered by the Triyr'leakhoa clan from the Glorious Empire three decades ago. Under the Empire's rule, it was left primarily as it already was; an agricultural backwater where Solomani raised genetically modified variants of a Terran cattle. The Triyr'leakhoa are rumoured to be looking at the world as a potential hunting preserve, by releasing predators to eat the cattle, which the Aslan can then hunt. If true, that would likely be disastrous for the Solomani living there.
  • Khireia'khaioka is the Chief of Staff and Executive Procurement Shipmaster for the Glorious Empire Space Forces and, though she does still technically answer to the all-male Supreme Admiralty, the female Aslan is operating with near independence from male supervision. It's rumoured that she's been putting other female Aslan into positions of power, believing they have the skills the Empire needs at this time, but there are suggestions that her behaviour is so outside the norm that she needs replacing.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
