Mongoose 2nd: Companies & Corporations is a Mongoose Publishing source and background book written for Mongoose 2nd.

Economics is one of the fundamental driving forces in any society, and Charted Space is full of groups trying to make a living – or better, a big profit. Companies and Corporations presents some of these groups along with their agenda, their methods and any dark secrets they may have. These commercial bodies are much smaller than the great Megacorporations, but some of them are major players in their own field. They might be encountered as patrons, allies, opponents or victims of the Travellers’ schemes, adding depth and colour to that generic row of starport cargo brokers and putting a backstory to that pile of freight containers.

This book contains a number of commercial entities which can be used by the referee as part of the backdrop or a key part of an adventure. Since the Travellers keep encountering detailed companies, they will not be able to guess which one is important to the plot and which are essentially red herrings.
