Description[edit]

The Day After Ragnarok

The Sword Worlds stand at the border of the Third Imperium, a small but proud civilization descended from ancient Terran migrants. Their inhabitants have spent centuries fighting for independence - from the Imperium, from the other great empires, even from each other.

A decade ago, the Sword Worlds went to war against the Third Imperium. They lost. Today, the Sword Worlders are in search of a new destiny, in a universe where their fierce pride seems headed for an inevitable fall. GURPS Traveller: Sword Worlds brings this unique culture to life. Within these pages, you'll find:

  • A history of the Sword Worlds as a whole, from the first colony to the last disastrous war with the Third Imperium.
  • In-depth information on the present-day political situation, in which the Third Imperium, two Sword Worlder alliances, the Darrian Confederation, and other regional powers all vie for dominance.
  • Detailed descriptions of the individual Sword Worlds - local history, geography, politics, organisations, and important personages.
  • Extensive Library Data, covering the important concepts of Sword Worlder society.
  • Character design guidelines, along with sketch biographies and character write-ups for a number of interesting figures.
  • Spaceships, vehicles, and technology specific to the Sword Worlds civilization.

Cling to honour and tradition in a universe turned upside down - live the Sword Worlds today!
