The original Pirates of Drinax campaign was a free release from Mongoose Publishing for their first version of Traveller. In it, the players play a band of adventures who are entrusted by the King of Drinax with a letter of marque, permitting them to prey on 'illegal' trade within the borders of the vanished kingdom. The King hopes that this piracy will give him the leverage he needs to restore Drinax to its former glory, and intends for the characters to win back all the planets lost over the last two centuries - but the King's plans are just the starting point for this campaign.
Once the characters have their letter and their ship, it's up to the players what they do next. The campaign is sandbox in nature, the party might stay loyal to their patron and help restore Drinax, or turn rogue and create their own kingdom. They might be heroes or monsters, pirates or privateers, making their fortune amid the pitiless stars, or finding that the cold depths of the Trojan Reach become their graves.
