|“|| For millennia humanity has traveled the stars, building empires that span hundreds of light-years. Those empires are home to a myriad of complex civilizations. This sourcebook takes an in-depth look at the cultures and societies of the powers of the BattleTech universe. Take a candid look at what life is like in the Inner Sphere, whether you're a Capellan who just gained citizenship or a Federated Suns student attempting to gain entrance to the prestigious New Avalon Institute of Science.
The Inner Sphere sourcebook provides information on the five great Houses—Kurita, Davion, Liao, Marik, Steiner—as well as the lesser powers of the Periphery.
