The Glorious Empire is an Aslan splinter state in the Trojan Reach that engages in the forbidden practice of slavery. The Empire has spurned the Aslan custom of ritual warfare, insisting upon violent open war in all conflicts. Their borders have held strong for centuries… until now. Beset by enemies on all sides, the Empire is now collapsing rapidly and has lost one world after another. However, like a wounded and cornered predator, the Empire does not plan to go down without a fight. On worlds liberated by the Hierate, freed human slaves – the hisol’i – struggle to integrate into Aslan society. On the Empire’s remaining worlds, there are billions more waiting to be freed.

This book contains everything needed to run a campaign in this dangerous and volatile region of space including histories, new career paths, world descriptions, new starships, small craft, vehicles, gear, weapons, and animal encounters. Detailed descriptions of Empire mercenary units, slaving ships, enslaved freedom fighters, black marketeers, key Hierate clans, the vaunted Camoranian Starfighters, and more are provided to add depth and colour to any campaign.

The Glorious Empire is a living region that will change dramatically over the course of a campaign. Wars will be fought, worlds will fall, and Travellers will directly influence, take part in, and decide the shape of things to come. This book includes tools and campaign directions for referees and Travellers to take an active part in the events that change an entire region of space right before their very eyes.

In this book you will find:

  • Patrons and important personalities for your Travellers to meet and interact with.
  • Spacecraft of the Glorious Empire and its enemies, along with unique technologies for the region.
  • The opportunity for your Travellers to shape the history of the Trojan Reach and support or bring down a failing empire.
  • Rules for using Naval Campaigns from Element Class Cruisers with Aslan ships.
  • A new entry for the Central Supply Catalogue that introduces the weapons, armour, and equipment of the Glorious Empire

PURCHASER
Read it cover to cover over the last two days. Great, original material (>95%, pretty good for a Mongoose book), backstory, history, psychology, philosophy even (good treatment of slavery and its implications). Plenty of detailed NPCs, world descriptions, new ships (just-Please, provide 2D a-n-d axonometric deckplans next time, or supplement them later?). Art is nice-Aslan are more 'traditionally' illustrated rather than in feline anthro form. Character generation section is helpful and there's even a tutorial on how to create custom maps on the Traveller map website to reflect how the Empire may fall...or rise again! This is what I have been waiting for after several subpar releases-THANK YOU!

Before someone comments on the price *again*, it's $30 on Mongoose's site.

Format
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.
