From publisher blurb:
The universe is a big place and as the Dominion has spread outward into the void, various groups and individuals have moved to fill it. Some have good intentions while others see infinite possibilities and profits on the horizon. There’s room for all of them, though some will be more welcome than others!
The “Group of the Week” series began at the Moebius Adventures website as a way to add more flavor to the Aliens & Asteroids universe. Each group has their own origins and reason for being, plus hooks for players and Referees to make their characters more a part of the setting than a part of the scenery.
Organizations collected in these pages deal with everything from ensuring the floors and walls are spic and span in your research station after a particular messy experiment to a government agency ensuring that the mess didn’t happen in the first place and the company responsible for hauling off all the garbage for incineration in the sun. We also have crazy explorers pushing boundaries, workers ensuring we can recycle to reduce our impact as we expand into the universe, and the absurdly rich making sure they live forever so they never have to give up their wealth.
Expansion #1: Faces and Factions brings together nine groups from the first couple of months of the “Group of the Week” effort, expanding them and offering detailed backgrounds for use in your own campaigns as well as new traits and potential plot threads to pull your adventures further into the universe.
