The Spinward Marches Campaign is a Game Designers Workshop product.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Spinward Marches Campaign is an early Classic Traveller source book.

  • Classic Traveller Campaign Setting. Background information on the Spinward Marches, including subsector by subsector descriptions, and a thorough description of the Fifth Frontier War, plus ideas for a campaign and information on a number of organizations within the Marches.

This campaign module includes detailed material on one Imperial sector - the Spinward Marches - and makes it suitable for use in a Traveller campaign. It covers background, history, and an adventure plot

The following information is included in this module:

  • Spinward Marches Maps: Two copies of maps of the Spinward Marches Sector - one enlarged detail, and a one-page size suitable for photocopying. Information also covers UPPs for each world, sector history and subsector data.
  • History of the Fifth Frontier War: Details of the Zhodani and Sword Worlds offensives during the just concluded war in the Spinward Marches. Maps of fleet movements. War timeline. The results of the war.
  • 154th Battle Riders: Organization and equipment of an Imperial Battle Rider squadron: Insignia details. History of the unit. High Guard ship statistics.
  • 4518th Lift Infantry Regiment: Organization and equipment of a frontier Lift Infantry Regiment. The unit crest. History of the unit.
  • Citizens: Character generation for twelve additional character types not included in Basic Traveller, suitable for player-characters and non-player-characters alike.
And there's adventure!

A bit error in a high priority transmission brands one of the player-characters a traitor - to be shot on sight. It's all a foul mix-up, but explain that to sixteen plasma-gun-armed Marines in battledress!

The adventurers are faced with a race against time and across the Spinward Marches - to find the source of the error and to correct it.
