Default Sharik's Guide to the Third Imperium, 1115


I've found that probably the best way to state what is "in" a setting is via a Guide which may gather odd bits together, and provides a list of extent published documents as resources that best represent it, instead of allowing all published material to be fair game. That way madness lies, to use Shakespeare incorrectly.

This can be profitably broken down further into milieu guides. The most important one would probably be

* Sharik's Guide to the Third Imperium, 1115.

Sharik could be the "main" Narrator, and Gannigar could be the "Contrarian" who occasionally pops in his head with a warning.


Sharik's Guide is a list of resources and sourced Library Data entries. When an existing source has considerably large amounts of useful data, then we just point to that and not bother re-inventing the wheel.


The primary resources for the 1115 milieu are, strangely enough, the MT Imperial Encyclopedia and Referee's Companion, and perhaps even material from the Rebellion Sourcebook. Other resources are the T5 Deckplans, and the T5 Core Rules.


The Library Data section is composed of scattered data from a number of sources, and includes:

* library entries/descriptions of military organization found in MT FSOTSI.

* profiles of ships, worlds, and corporations, found in these published works:
