Turning Points: Orbisonia (shorted as TP:Orbisonia) is part of the Turning Points series, which is the fifth release of a PDF web exclusive product produced by Catalyst Game Labs in the Succession Wars Era. The product uses the Chaos Campaign rules and provides a campaign setting for players to fight the Battle of Orbisonia, featuring the Capellan Confederation trying reclaim the the storied worlds of the Chesterton Trade League from the Federated Suns during the Second Succession War.
Product Write Up
|“|| The Chancellor of the Capellan Confederation ached to reclaim the long-lost worlds of the Chesterton Confederation for her nation, and the outbreak of the Second Succession War gave her the opportunity for invasion. Chancellor Ilsa Liao targeted worlds along a wide front, and personally led one of the most feared formations in Capellan history against Orbisonia. Five bloody days in June 2828 turned the tide of the invasion and changed the Confederation forever.
Turning Points: Orbisonia uses Chaos Campaign rules to give players the option of fighting individual battles, following a campaign arc, or inserting Chancellor Ilsa Liao’s campaign for Orbisonia into their own campaigns. Included are a detailed map of the world of Orbisonia, full details of the forces involved in the invasion, and scenario tracks that players can use to recreate the battles on Orbisonia. The only limits are the players’ imagination!
