From the back cover
|“||Despite centuries of unrest, the Free Worlds League (formed in 2271) is the oldest of all the Great Houses. Its capital, Atreus, colonized during humankind’s initial exodus to the stars, is held as the ideal of the democracy prized by the people of the League.
Then came the Jihad.
Jihad Turning Points: Atreus fleshes out the details of the conflict surrounding this pivotal world published in various Jihad Plot sourcebooks. Additionally, players can join one of the myriad of forces fighting for control—and survival—of the Free Worlds League’s capital world.
This campaign series uses the Chaos Campaign rules and gives players the option of fighting individual battles, following a campaign arc, inserting it into their own campaigns and even create their own scenarios with optional rules to give their games an "Atreus flavor." The e-book includes a detailed map of the world of Atreus, a run down of the forces involved in the conflict, and several tracks that players can use to run simple lance-on-lance battles, or stage up to a world-wide invasion. Only the players’ imaginations are the limit.
