The Spinward Marches lie on the edge of Imperial space, and 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 asventure for those willing to seek it out.

The book details the history of the sector and how the various governments interact.

The role of mega-corporations is also discussed with their rivalries causing almost as much conflict as the clash of the mighty empires.

The various alien races that can be found in the sector are also looked at as is how they interact with the main powers.

Many planets are given a short description with many plot links that Games Masters can use for their own campaigns.

A number of planets are given more detailed descriptions, with some of the more notable being so described.

This sourcebook for the Traveller game serves a springboard for any new campaign set during the Third Imperium.

Mongoose Publishing has taken the Spinward Marches and brought it up to date for the 21stC. Martin Dougherty's eminently readable text is easy to understand yet imparts information about The Marches in a useful fashion. There are hints, nudges and nods [...]

This is real Classic Traveller nostalgia, a must for anyone who wants to play Traveller 5 in the Third Imperium. Only problem I have is that the sector map on page 56 and the header on the following page are completely corrupted. Hope they get this update [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
