Publisher's Description[edit]

Death to the dishonorable! Eager to take revenge on the devious Smythe-Jewels, Clans Coyote and Hell’s Horses announced a Trial of Possession for all of the Fire Mandrill Kindraa’s holdings and legacies. The no holds barred campaign saw innovative strategies and state-of-the-art technology come into play in the Kindraa’s fight for survival. Desperate maneuvers and sly battle plans swung the battle back and forth. Turning Points: Foster details the fate of Kindraa Smythe-Jewel in a titanic struggle in the Kerensky Cluster during the Golden Century.

Turning Points: Foster uses Chaos Campaign rules to give players the option of fighting individual battles or to follow a campaign arc. Included are a detailed map of the world of Foster, a run down of the forces involved, and scenario tracks recreating the battles.
