The subject of this module is the Hivers — a race of six-limbed, omnivorous gatherer/scavengers that has grown from a single world culture to the dominant race of the star-spanning Hive Federation, which rivals the Third Imperium in power and technology. The Hivers' physical and psychological differences from Humaniti are examined in detail, and the effects of these differences on specific game rules are explained.
