Religion: A Roman Revival
Religion in the Marian Hegemony has always been as diverse as
in any other Periphery state, with many faiths represented among its

Hegemony worlds also host Saturnalia markets during this week-long
holiday season, at which small gifts are bought for exchanging wit

На русском! (за что отдельный респект переводчикам) :cool:

Описаны т. н. "локальные войны" 31 столетия: Мятеж Антона Марика, андурианские и ронинские войны. Для полного плезира не хватает разве что Операции "Гуэрреро"... :hmm: Возможно, это упущение будет исправлено в будущем?
