This book is a science fiction campaign guide for the Double Spiral War setting using the Traveller Role Playing Game published by Mongoose Publishing.
This book is based on the Double Spiral War Trilogy by Warren C. Norwood. The work will contain information about the aliens, starships, planets and backgrounds from the novels. While not necessary to play, you may get more out of the setting reading the novels prior to playing the setting.
Campaigns in the Double Spiral War setting are multifaceted. People can play characters from any walk of life, including members of the military (army, navy or marines), merchants, scientists, diplomats and all sorts of aliens. Campaigns can be merchant missions, the hunt for hidden treasures, the exploration of the galaxy, a military campaign where all the players are from the Sondak Confederacy, the United Central Systems or any number of neutral parties, or even one of political intrigue. There are places in the galaxy that still have not pledged allegiance to one side or the other, and there are yet still alien races to meet and explore (or conquer as you see fit).
Inside this book you will find:
Races of the Caveness Galaxy, including three separate types of humans and two alien races.
Information on the Sondak Confederacy and the United Central Systems, as well as background material on alien races that inhabit the galaxy.
Details of the Double Spiral War
Detailed information about starships for all governments
Information about the gear used in the universe
The Double Spiral War, Warren Norwood’s chronicle of interstellar combat is a powerful, graphically realistic epic on a vast cosmic scale.
When mankind left behind their old home to seek out new lands beyond the dark spaces between galaxies, they hoped to leave behind them the conflict and chaos that has been their heritage since they first spoke tales of their histories. However, it wasn’t as easy as that. Even amongst alien species, mankind still found cause to war amongst itself. Several decades before, the Sondak Confederacy worried about the growing power of the United Central Systems, a group dominated by humans genetically modified to have a much longer life span. As a result, they launched a war that waged for years tearing at both societies until finally they forced the U.C.S. to accept humiliating terms in exchange for peace. The Sondak Confederacy is complacent and unaware that the U.C.S. is on the verge of finally seeking vengeance for the loss of the previous war. And in the churning wake of these two giants, all the races of the galaxy and the lives of many individuals shall be turned upside down. But the question is whose vengeance is being sought? Is it that of a nation’s or could it be that of a single person?
This setting book for the Traveller game engine is your chance to make a difference in the war, do you have what it takes to turn the tide of the war, or even hold your faith in the midst of the worst conflict of all time.
