The Encyclopedia Royica is the official repository of all information pertaining to the Star Empire of Galba Roy RPG Setting. The Star-Empire is a Vernian Science-Fantasy setting suitable for use with any appropriately-open engines, principally developed for the TarnishedTale Ruleset.

The primary focus of the setting and events described therein center around the events of the 24th Century and the Three Pulpits Conflict, which sees political unrest and martial turmoil over a period of transitional history in the Star Empire, largely around three factions - the Royalists seeking to conserve the status quo, the hard-line Republicans seeking a complete overthrow of the empire and its trappings, and a growing, moderate Commonwealth Faction.
