Many different factions have squared off in the impending struggle for ultimate power. Rebellion Sourcebook covers the diverse factions of the Rebellion, their equipment, their goals and strategies, and (most of all) how players can get involved in the grandest adventures the stars have ever seen.
The Imperium is being torn apart by the star-spanning Rebellion; rival leaders are fighting for the right to sit on the Iridium Throne of the Third Imperium and to rule the greatest interstellar empire that the galaxy has ever seen.
Now the Rebellion Sourcebook provides the details of the Rebellion that allow MegaTraveller referees and players to incorporate the sweep and the chaos of the Rebellion into their own role-playing adventures. Maps show the Imperium and its battlegrounds. Diagrams show the organization of the Imperial military, naturally the source of the armed forces for every faction of the Rebellion. Drawings show typical Imperial military hardware - the Imperial standard design grav tanks, grav APCs, and typical ships of the Imperial fleets.
The rival factions of the Rebellion have their own distinct leadership, aims, and backgrounds; the Rebellion Sourcebook provides this material.
- Lucan - the Emperor's nephew and a legitimate heir but also rumored to have murdered his own brother in order to win the throne.
- Dulinor - he sparked the Rebellion by killing the Emperor, and now he claims to be Emperor by right of assassination.
- Margaret - the compromise candidate proposed by moderate elements in Imperial society.
- Strephon - is he the real Emperor or an imposter?
- Brzk - the Archduke of Antares, convinced that the Imperium will never accept him, a non-human, as Emperor.
- Norris - claiming allegiance to the Imperium but refusing to support any specific faction.
- Vargr - raiders intent on looting the undefended border provinces of the Imperium.
- Aslan - driven to colonize new worlds, even if they are inside the Imperial borders.
- Vland - intent on reestablishing their own empire.
- Solomani - champions of human supremacy, intent on imposing their way on all of humanity.
Also included in this sourcebook is an adventure set against the chaotic sweep of the Rebellion: a starship crew must travel across parsecs of disputed and dangerous territory in a quest for vital starship repair parts. And completion of the trek to an Imperial naval depot is vital to the survival of the Spinward Marches.
