Action on Akaisha Outstation
"Dozens of Deep-Space Outstations are scattered across the Interstellar void of the Terran Empire. Light-years from any inhabited worlds, they are completely self-contained. These huge constructs are fitted with extensive docking and repair bays as well as guest accommodations for thousands.
Located on the edge of Delta "C" Sector, Akaisha Outstation is on the borders of Devonian Provincial Space. Beyond is Imperial territory, and nearby are possessions of Houses Colos and Jade-London.
Because of this key placement, the Emperor has seen fit to "supplement" the Devonian staff with a few Imperial Administrators and security troops. This distresses Lord Devon to no end...
ACTION ON AKAISHA OUTSTATION includes:
• Complete plans of the Outstation
• 16 pre-generated player characters
• Details of prominent non-player characters
• 3 complete Ready-to-Run adventures —
(1) Break up a terrorist kidnapping
(2) Aid an interstellar secret agent
(3) Catch thieves dealing in priceless artifacts."

The Cygnus Conspiracy: A Subject World Plots Revolt
"TARA: HOUSE KASHMERE'S INDUSTRIAL CENTER
Set on a rocky pinnacle in the center of an ancient crater, Cygnus Corp's Ardinium ore processing plant Number 27 glows a metallic gold in the hazy sunrise. It is a rare appearance for Tara's star, usually lost behind a curtain of smog and acidic drizzle. The weary, merely-human workers return to the plant for another long day of labour amidst the untiring machines built by their superiors, the superhuman Kashmerians of 69 Cygni. The Cygnans are their masters.
"Slavery thrives in this corner of the Terran Empire," cry, the horrified liberals in the Imperial Senate.
"We are elevating them to our level of technology and culture." retort the Cygnans (who fail to mention their poisoning of he planet).
But a billion people manage to live on backward Tara, and though it is a closed world, an amazing number of trade ships manage to slip through Cygnus security to smuggle their high-tech wares... to fuel rebellion.
A SUBJECT WORLD PLOTS REVOLT!
Included are three adventures, set on an induxtria, but technologically depressed planet within the province of Kashmere. Each involves intrigue and danger as agents of the K.I.N. (Kashmere Intelligence Net), battle Regels and assasins of enemy Houses.
1. The Baron of Cygnus' daughter is trapped in an underwater mine accident! Was it an accident - or sabotage by angry rebels? She must be rescued and the truth must be uncovered!
2. A few replicants have survived the Antitelepath Purge of a few months ago. Are they special agents from House Colos sent to cause terror within the Kashmerian society, or desperate refugees seeking asylum from their evil creators? K.I.N. agents must beat the Colosians and capture the replicants alive!
3. The Conspiracy: Underground Taran leaders have devised a plot to sabotage the planet's defenses and seize control of the worldwide computer net! If they suceed, they could paralyze Kahmerian industry and bring the mighty Cygnus Clan to its knees. Can the K.I.N. thwart them?"

War on a Distant Moon: The Tayan Revolution
"Fighting for their HomeWorld with little to lose, the rebels of the Tayan Liberation Front have proven themselves a force to be reckoned with. Although Darran Provincial garrisons have been tripled, the rebel bases remain hidden and the terrorist attacks continue. Rumor has it that the Church has requested Imperial aid in the crisis. Can the Viscount of Darran retain control of his crumbling Province?
For three centuries the Royal House of Darran has held control of the moon Tayah and its precious organic resources, despite the presence of Clan Tsoros, a race of aboriginal humanoids. The once peaceful cohabitation has now degenerated into guerilla warfare, as the Tsorosians attempt to throw off Darranian rule.
War on a Distant Moon™ includes detailed descriptions of the worlds and cultures of the Darran province, star charts and terrain maps, current events and important persons, and five ready-to-run adventures that place you in the center of the action!
• What begins as a straightforward locate-and-rescue mission proves to have more than its share of surprises.
• A trek across Tayah leads to encounters with alien lifeforms, City Guards, and death squad terrorists.
• A search for ship parts turns up much more than spare sensor grids.
• A race across 1200 kilometers of rough, freezing terrain in the midst of an Imperial siege sounds easy enough. . .
• Attempting to get out of the system, you find that there's just the small matter of an orbiting Imperial Gunship Squadron.

Imperial Crisis: House Devon in Turmoil
"Long ago, before even the Empire, there was Devon Electronics: a huge corporation dominating the microcircuitry market. It survived nuclear conflicts, the expansion of mankind into space, and the repressive Terran Federated Democracy.
Devon Electronics — and a handful of other Megacorporations — also weathered the Wars of Integration and the consecration of the Terran Empire.
However, the Corporation has changed, Devon’s power has spread to encompass entire star systems. It is more than a Company: it is a Government.
House Devon, ruled by Lord Yama Pythagor III Devon, now holds sway over a rich Inner Province in a feudal arrangement with the Emperor. For thousands of years Devon has thrived, but now strife — internal and external — threatens to undermine the power of the Family and so the very existence of the Province.
This first Space Master Campaign Module details an Inner Province of the Terran Empire: House Devon, constantly under attack both openly and subversively by the rival family Colos, threatened by uprisings by Minor Clans within the House, and always on guard against pirates, smugglers, and interstellar terrorism.
IMPERIAL CRISIS: House Devon in Turmoil includes:
· 4 detailed adventures, complete with layouts, stats for NPC’s, and rich background material
· Pages of “Chance Encounter” charts for mini-adventures
· A general history of the Terran Empire

Lost Telepaths: The Secret of House Kashmere
"Astra’s launch occurred without incident, but soon thereafter a problem in the astrogation program developed. Whether it was equipment failure or sabotage will never be known. For several hundred years the Astra drifted through space, off course. Assuming a rogue star to be the planned destination, the ship decelerated and prepared to orbit the star’s only planet.
Captain Kashmere and a skeleton bridge crew were the first awakened. Quickly they realized that something had gone very wrong...
Brace yourself for action! Here are some of the adventures you’ll find in LOST TELEPATHS.
• Explore an ancient tomb that harbors a strange and powerful telepathic artifact.
• Investigate the rumors of strange beings with supernatural powers. The Eugenicists had been utterly defeated by the Kashmere Lords ….or had they?
• The warship Prometheus waits in orbital spacedock for completion and its shakedown mission. Other provinces — perhaps even the Emperor — would stop at nothing to possess it. Can you stop them?
• “Just a simple gun run” the Leaguemaster told you. He forgot to mention the brutally efficient customs officials, and who knows what else the Telepaths might do to stop you..."

Beyond the Core: The Worlds of Frontier Zone Five
"In the power hungry and paranoid world of Space Master, no region breeds as much avarice and distrust as the Frontier. Here, beyond the reaches of the Core Provinces, resources are still “up for grabs.” It is no surprise that the Emperor keeps a close eye on Frontier events, especially the discovery and exploration of new worlds. Imperial Observers (I.O.) nearly always accompany exploratory missions, scrutinizing development. Still, there are those clever groups which manage to evade investigations—by hook or by crook!
