Tamar Rising.

  I just got this sourcebook today and am pleased with how nice it looks. I have only given it a brief skim but it looks promising. I will have more thoughts as I dig deeper into the book. Anyone else have thoughts?

I liked Tamar Rising which is a really well made sourcebook. I would suggest to read the novels "a rock and a hard place" and "Elements of treason" first and then study the sourcebook.

I very much liked Tamar Rising as well. IMHO the narrative, factions and characters in the book itself are engaging in their own right plus it sets the stage for an interesting future in the region, and the artwork is very good.

It gives me high hopes for Empire Alone and Dominions Divided.

Agreed. Although “A Rock and a Hard Place” is actually set a century earlier during the 4SW, how does that tie into this? Or did you mean “No Substitute for Victory”?

The two GDL novellas “The Price of Duty” and “Mercenary’s Honor” are also set during this period but can be read before or after TR either way.

Bonus points for the Map. I really hope they do more of those. Having a decent star map with distances and some planet fluff is great. My campaign has been a "home brew AU" for decades so what will end up happening is I will use what I want/need for non demo/private events and use the source as is for demos.

There is really a wealth of info in it which can be used in a campaign. To me it seems to be dangerous not to overwhelm the campaign with to much details. sometimes games tend to bog down due to too much micromanagment
