History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

  • Capital: 0601 Ksikhsoloug AAD8625-B
  • Naval Bases: 3 VVar
  • Corsair Bases: 5

While the Vilani had long made First Contact with the Gvegh, Aekhu and Logaksu before -2400, the proto-Irilitok, Ovaghoun, Suedzuk and Urzaeng took longer to find a path around the Windhorn Rift. The Vilani were already receding, their borders crumbling as the Ziru Sirka was falling to decadence. The Vilani monopoly on jump drive technology was lost in the face of the alien Vargr they had encountered in numbers they could not hope to conquer. The Windhorn had protected Lair from being conquered until the Vargr had begun their First Diaspora spinward, coreward and slowly circumnavigating the vast emptiness of the Rift.

Using Jump 1 starships typically fueled for two consecutive jumps, the Vargr entered Dortokh Subsector through the Asteroid world of Uengkikgi (Gzaefueg 0204) initially until a second route was later discovered through Gvaengfadz (Gzaefueg 0701). It was this second and final route that would eventually become the terminus for the future polities that would be named the Empire of Varroerth and the Ruler of Five.

In 1105 and by default of having only one shipyard in all Dortokh, Ksikhsoloug (Gzaefueg 0601) remains the Capital (Cp) by default. The Empire of Varroerth has sought to stabilize the interface world with a Naval Base with half the subsector fleet patrolling the coreward route and the second half vigilant for breakout flashes in Uengkikgi. Smuggling between Varroerth and Ruler of Five is rampant, but outright piracy goes unchecked on the Rimward side of the border.
