Portraits of the Galactic Empire

In Brief

“Portraits of the Galactic Empire”

“Portraits of the Galactic Empire” is a classic space opera style game, played using the Mongoose version of TRAVELLER, with all supplements included as options for players (and by extension for NPCs).

The story will start with a group of established colleagues who are already relatively well off (financially) and are second or third term in their career. No particular background will be required, and the challenges which are faced could be tackled in any number of ways.

Adding spice to the mix, there is an element of TEMPORAL DISTORTION _involved in this implementation of the _TRAVELLER universe, which may lead to diversions and potential adventure in galaxies and times away from normal experience. The temporal distortions are unpredictable and hard to harness in a methodical fashion, although Imperial scientists have been working on this for some time.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
