MyGURPS - Embers Of The Imperium

Embers Of The Imperium

Embers of the Imperium is a roleplaying game based on the immersive Twilight Imperium board game. It uses the Genesys rules, which are summarized in "Character Creation" and "How to Play" below.

Elevator Pitch: Our heroes are members of the Keleres. On paper, the Keleres are an elite paramilitary organization formed by the Galactic Council to identify and eliminate threats to the survival of the galaxy. In practice, thanks to constant Council infighting and many worlds barely paying lip service to Council authority, the Keleres are peacekeepers and troubleshooters trying their best to solve problems with little support.
