Hatmehing




Home of the Archon Horde, a loose confederacy of pirates, brigands, mercenaries and criminals led by the self-proclaimed illegitimate son of Archon Delaine, Hatmehing citizens now find themselves cowering before a new ruler. Where once personal debts meant slavery, Archon the Mongrel merely demands his pound of flesh - literally. As such, visitors are advised to stay away from the local casinos and not to buy into the advertisements for loans and credit cards. While it is tempting to think that being taken over by the Archon Horde would put a dampener on Hatmehing's production facilities, this is not the case. Under Archon the Mongrel's leadership Hatmehing production facilities have increased production of both performance enhancers, progenitor cells and synthetic meat, but insiders warn people not to examine the products too carefully due to the cheap and abundant raw materials that have suddenly become available.

A group of independent pilots calling themselves "The Allies" rose from the Quivira War. Their goal was to support the Alliance of Independent Systems in the name of freedom and justice. To aid those in need, the group ultimately founded the "Perez Ring Brewery". Today the famous Perez Beer from LHS 2637 funds most of the groups activities - and thereby freedom and justice for millions of people. Even though the "Perez Ring Brewery" is, from a legal point, corporate, it is politically a strong advocate of democracy and human rights.

Malaikudi






The 9th Legion was formed in 3145 by an Imperial Decree by the then Emperor Hender Saik Duval, as an Imperial Special Operations unit. It was tasked with furthering the interests of the Emperor by overt and covert military action, and the defence of Imperial space. Originally headquartered in Facece, the unit was moved to Kamadhenu following tension with the Imperial Navy, who found its irregular (but highly effective) methods irksome. It continued to operated in a special operations role, and saw several battle honours added to its colours. All actions of the 9th are still highly classified, but it is rumoured that every major conflict has seen the unit involved. As a result of the sacrifices of the 9th, and the distinction with which it served, Emperor Hesketh Duval granted it the system of Malaikudi as its headquarters in 3218. Around this time, the existence of the unit was publicly acknowledged for the first time, in a session of the Imperial Senate. Currently, the 9th continues to operate as a special operations unit, and in addition is often tasked with protecting the Imperial border worlds from Federal incursions. Due to its nature, the 9th has often had individual Inquisitors of the Chapterhouse of Inquisition among its ranks, and it is rumoured that this is currently the case. It also has strong links with Lavigny's Legion, and the two units have fought together on several occasions against the enemies of the Empire.
Manah


Manah was colonised by a `land rush' from nearby poorer systems after word spread of its riches. Hundreds of families claimed large tracts of land and fought until only four remained. A negotiated peace enabled exploration, but the system's purported wealth turned out to be a bar-room tale. The rumours were traced to source, which left only three families remaining. With money gone, they took to couriering goods and people around the surrounding systems. Later, they welcomed the protection offered by Federal affiliation and combined to form Starliner Express.

Founded in the 12th century, while still planet bound on Mother Earth, the (then) Adherents of Mumu sought to better their environment for the benefit of others. When first generation ships were due to leave Earth their society sought to colonise a system far from Earth as they believed that Earth itself was not worth saving. The colonists, by and large, survived the journey, arriving several hundred years ago. A significant proportion of the first settlers had developed a sincere hatred of space travel by the time they made first landing. Since their arrival they have grown particularly attached to their home and have transformed into a community that is fiercely protective of its chosen system and resistant to any attempts at visitation by those who have not been granted access.

Here they reformed and created a new corporation that they could build upon and call their own. A century later, expanding and growing in numbers, the Praetorians look to the future and have turned their attention and efforts towards a stronger power base, striving to become a self sufficient faction on its own merits. "No price is too high for liberty and profit!"

Some say that the RC bloodlines continue amongst the local population, and that Commander Pepper continues to roam the galaxies today, but most clear-headed commentators believe this is romantic nonsense. SPF-LF 2 has strict controls on the most interesting planet in the system carefully preserving the indigenous flora and fauna from introduced species. Originally named 'Down Under' as it felt a lot like the setting of the 33rd century social soap opera of the same name, set in historic Australia from old Earth. After their disappearance, Down Under was renamed as a tribute to the RC Commanders and their unique flight and combat practices. Its unusual lumbering, jumping and flightless creatures remain to this day.

It is reasonably close to Imperial and Federation space but not resource-rich enough to receive much in the way of interest from them, which of course makes it a prime place for pirates and other criminals to hide out in.

The Alliance Democratic Network is a group of free citizens dedicated to ending the tyranny of dictatorial regimes, anti-democratic governments and hyper-corporations in Alliance space. The faction, led by the `hacktivist' Julia Cross, supports the independence of Alliance systems, but their members believe that dictatorships, crime syndicates and corporation-controlled systems run counter to the values of the Alliance.
Ys


The Dreamers of Ys worship the Republic of Achenar, which died with Marlin Duval at the dawning of the Empire. Driven by the belief that Marlin will be reincarnated and birth a new Republic, as prophesised by the first Sibyl in a dream, most worship Aisling Duval. However, the coronation of Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval has shattered many of their Sibyls' premonitions, dividing the cult. Despite infighting, the Sibyls still seek to seed the dream of a new Republic throughout the Empire.
YZ Ceti A coalition of independent pilots who publically gather new medical technologies for the Federation. Their real purpose is to gather military tech for the Federation.

They are looking for a way to bring good will and prosperity to a region of space that is in constant flux.

The Privateers of VSOP are based in this system. They were initially a specialist pilot organisation flying tailored and specially designed aircraft, delivered by the aeronautical division of VSOP. This tradition dates back to the early 21st century on Earth. Originally it was a small subset of pilots from their black ops unit who later evolved into a privateer organisation. Authorities, civilians or other groups may request assistance for a fee. The VSOP Space Agency mother organisation still upholds their leading edge in space ship design, but due to its secretive nature the number of custom ships operating remains unknown.
Zeta Trianguli

Dead Men Walking are based in this system and are a co-operative group of like-minded combat pilots and traders who decided (over much Gerasian Gueuze Beer and Lavian Brandy) that working together as a team was more social and much safer. This left more time for healthy profit and friendly banter in the deeps of space. Join us and you'll never warp alone.
Zeta Tucanae The mines and other ordnance manufacturer Blast All Inc is based in this small but key system as part of the Federal military-industrial complex. 'Mines. You want 'em, we got them.'
