Showing the Sunburst is a Mongoose Publishing adventure written for Mongoose 2nd. It is intended to be used with the Naval Campaign Sourcebook.

Publisher's Description[edit]

In Showing the Sunburst, the captain and crew of an Imperial naval vessel are ordered to undertake a cruise among the neutral worlds between the Imperium's territories in the Spinward Marches and the Zhodani Consulate. Flag-showing missions are commonplace, reminding friends and potential foes alike that the navy is ready to respond to trouble. It is also used as a cover for intelligence gathering and the occasional covert operation is supported along the way. With tensions running high between the Imperium and the Consulate, the Travellers will need to tread carefully - but at the same time the Imperium cannot afford to seem weak or ineffectual.

During the course of their mission, the Travellers will encounter complex situations that cannot be solved by violence; naval officers must be diplomats, warriors, lawyers and anything else required. Assistance will be several weeks away, and a navy crew are expected to get the job done without calling for help every time they encounter a setback.
