In Game Designer's Workshop's Traveller role-playing game, the term Coreward defines one of the four galactic directions used in the Third Imperium and it's neighboring states. Coreward means "in the direction of the galactic core", the centre of the galactic coordinate system. The other directions are Rimward, Spinward and Trailing.

On the Imperial coreward frontier lie the Vargr Extents, populated by the Vargr, decendants of earth's canine stock and uplifted by the Ancients eons before the Third Imperium.
