Publisher's Description[edit]

Rumors of valuable Star League hardware left over from the war against Stefan the Usurper bring treasure hunters to the Free Worlds League world of Tyrfing in the midst of the First Succession War. These trespassers hailed from the Capellan Confederation and Lyran Commonwealth. The Free Worlders sent reinforcements, only for the rumors to spread to the other Successor States. Soon, forces from the Federated Suns and Draconis Combine joined those already on Tyrfing. The Five-Way War for the fabled treasure of Tyrfing had begun!

Turning Points: Tyrfing uses Chaos Campaign rules to give players the option of fighting individual battles or following a campaign arc, and even includes special rules for randomizing allies and enemies and battling within the unique terrain of the Great Crystal Valley. Included are a detailed map of the world of Tyrfing, full details of the forces involved in the Trial, and scenario tracks recreating the battles on Tyrfing. The only limits are the players’ imaginations!
