Description (Specifications)[edit]

In the wake of the Rebellion, chaos rules over the once proud Imperium. Bands of corsairs stalk the spaceways, crippling the trade that once linked over 11,000 worlds. Without some force to permit the safe passage of trade, interstellar society cannot help but collapse.

Even in these dark times, people can still be found to shoulder the burdens of civilization. Among these are the crew of the starship Vigilante. A fighter-carrying mercenary ship, its dedicated crew of starmercs specializes in the eradication of pirate forces wherever they may be found.

live the excitement of life aboard the Vigilante, battling pirates around the threatened worlds of the Diaspora Sector, infiltrating the ranks of deadly raiders, or fighting to the death inside a massive gas giant.

Two tense scenarios pull the players into the struggle for the spacelanes of Promise Subsector. First, a search-and -retrieval job turns deadly, then the future of a small world requires an inside job to thwart an elaborate plot.

Included in the 'Assignment: Vigilante Campaign Folio are:

  • Full-color two-page deck plans of the starship Vigilante
  • Detailed color diagram of Starmerc trooper equipment
  • Full-color starship recognition chart
  • 16 page campaign booklet containing background information to join the adventures into a full campaign set in the Promise Subsector of Diaspora. Features seven new MegaTraveller ship designs and up-to-date UWP information for Promise Subsector.
