The Empire's Corps

The Galactic Empire has united the human race for over three thousand years, but now the Empire is dying, killed by its own success.  Corruption and nepotism has ruined the Empire’s government, bureaucracy is slowly strangling its economy and the military is declining into impotence.  Pirates stalk the Rim, killing, raping and looting with impunity, while the Core Worlds struggle to keep themselves alive.  The end cannot be long delayed.

In this setting, a handful of characters set out to keep civilisation alive, whatever the cost.

This is the story of the end of civilisation ... and the birth of a new order.

This is the story of The Empire’s Corps
