Format: Paperback
'The Spinward Marches lie on the edge of Imperial space, an area that borders rival interstellar governments that directly oppose any further expansion. Far from the major centres of power the local rulers have more practical power than the Emperor himself. It is here that bands of daring individuals can take advantage of the hostile factions in order to carve out a fortune for themselves. The Spinward Marches offer untold adventure for those willing to seek it out.'

This is a complete campaign sourcebook for The Spinward Marches and the general ideas is that it's an area of space where pretty much anything goes... you can keep your political wrangling, your feuding houses and your squabbling feudal worlds; out here, on the edges of `civilisation', is where the money and the adventure is.

THE BOOK

To be used in conjunction with Mongoose's `Traveller' core rulebook, The Third Imperium - The Spinward Marches is a 142 page softback book with full colour covers and a black and white interior, with greyscale artwork and an easy to read font.

The presentation is very good but the one area that lets it down is the artwork; there are some nice images in here but some of the art simply doesn't suit the setting at all. There's one thing that pulls me into a game world and that's the artwork as it gives a visual representation of what the world is like. It's easy enough to ignore the art - and heaven knows I've done that with a lot of books - but incompatible art can affect how a work is perceived. The full colour cover, a mixed race crew standing around a starport as a starship touches down behind them, is excellent and is much more inkeeping with the style of the setting.

THE CONTENTS

The book is laid in several chapters.

This is a very good fluff peice and campaign aid to hand to your players who are having trouble visualising the traveller universe. One of my players straight away said 'this is a rip-off of warhammer' then i cracked open my classic traveller books and showed him the print dates. :P
