The new Imperium is growing, reaching out to neighboring worlds after the Long Night, expanding in power and influence. Some of the worlds they contact are already part of smaller empires, Pocket empires, also rising from centuries of barbarism.

Pocket Empires presents complete rules for players to own and manage Traveller worlds. Generate income from worlds, assessing each for resources, labor, trade and technology, then allocate revenue to build infrastructure, space fleets, and more! Set interstellar economics in motion.
