Description / Specifications[edit]

Foralin Subsector lies within Far Home Sector and is named for the Foralin system and its red giant primary star. It is a relatively undeveloped backwater with few advanced worlds. The Spinward Drift Star Lane crosses through its the coreward half, while its rimward regions are considered to lie within the Great Void. The Ha'shaka system, lying on the Subsector's rimward-trailing border, marks the spinward limit of Sath exploration.

History & Background[edit]

Foralin Subsector saw almost no activity by humans prior to the establishment of the Third Confederation, and what little development there was abruptly ended with the onset of the Dark Age, nearly two thousand years ago. Following the Renaissance period survivor worlds were recontacted, scavengers picked over the few remains that there were, and hardy pioneers looked to the empty systems and the opportunities they presented. Almost all expansion and growth within the region is relatively modern, beginning during the so-called Golden Age and continuing with the nebulous Development Organizations and the rise of polities.

  • A strong social divide exists between wealthy and aristocratic Fives, descended from the original settlers and crew of the Last Armada, and Gens, individuals whose ancestors were grown in GenPods and raised by Hoppers.
