Behind the Claw: Slang phrase referring to those regions of the Third Imperium lying beyond the Great Rift. Almost a year from the Capital by XBoat, the Spinward Marches is a frontier region, scene of Five Frontier Wars and innumerable skirmishes. The Marches is one of the most troubled regions of the entire Imperium.
Behind the Claw details the Spinward Marches, a complete sector of space for GURPS Traveller. Over 400 star systems are described in detail, along with essays on the Imperial Nobility and system of government, a detailed history of the region, Game Master’s information, current events and a wealth of adventure material. The setting is rich and diverse, with unlimited scope for campaigns.
