The Empty Quarter has had a long and florid history.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Empty Quarter is particularly noted for its many civilizations and diverse population of sophont species. Conquerors have come and gone, but civilization endures.

Vargr Historical Overview[edit]

The Empty Quarter is Vargr Space and any story of the astrographic region is one of Vargr civilization. However, there are other NILs across the area, a large human empire, the Yleans, and a number of others. The First Imperium also colonized and fought through the region at one time as well.

Vilani Historical Overview[edit]

The First Imperium extensively colonized the region at one time and exposed the Vargr to the socioeconomic culture of the Bureaux.

Terran Historical Overview[edit]

When the Terran Confederation fought the Ziru Sirka to defeat over the Interstellar Wars, Terrans reached this area and eventually established the Rule of Man, which regarded this area as a frontier.

Imperial Historical Overview[edit]

The Third Imperium has had quite a conflict with the numerous young nations of the Vargr Extents... There is a relative peace and flourishing trade relationship at this time in 1105.
