From the back cover:
Long ago, when the first three Megacorps - Capitol, Bauhaus, and Mishima - had already claimed most of the solar system for themselves, a group of families banded together to become the fourth of those all-powerful entities: Imperial.
This shining new star shone the light of its curiosity into the darkness of the Void, and there they stumbled upon the tenth planet Nero and the First Seal of Repulsion, which they broke by their very presence, releasing the Dark Soul upon a hapless Humanity.
In the years since, the Clans have fought bravely against the evil beyond the reach of our sun's radiant warmth. But their commitment to the good fight has been compromised by other battles: skirmishes with the other Megacorps, even war between the Clans - The Sad Struggle - and the subsequent Great Resentment.
But now is the time to put such petty differences aside, to stand as one with Her Serenity against the Great Darkness.
Now is the time for heroes.
Experience the thrill of the Asteroid belt, the power of the noble clans, the brilliance of Her Serenity, the might of the Young Guards, the secrets of Imperial Security Command, the unstoppable force of the glorious Blood Berets, the fire-power of the Mega-Charger, the mad frenzy of the Wolfbanes and the action of "The Liberty Gambit" - a fast and intriguing adventure. Apart from an accurate description of the mega-corporation itself, "Imperial" contaons rules for how to create your noble Imperial character, additional rules for space travel, descriptions of the asteroid Victoria, expanded weapons, skills and combat rules, plus much more for both players and Gamemasters.
