Polity Descriptions[edit]

Brief synopses of the polities found in Halcyon Sector:

  • Bright Conclave. A feudal technocracy ruled by an academic elite drawn from the University of Selasia.
  • Enlightened. A shadowy state, a democratic confederation of worlds. Its heritage draws strongly on corsair traditions, and many of its fundamental laws and rulings draw from a "pirate code". There is a strong suspicion that the Enlightened actively support corsair and pirate activity within the Distant Fringe.
  • Esaran Cultural Area. A region dominated by the Esaran, a technologically advanced sophont species.
  • High Senate. A representative democracy. It emerged from an aggressive militaristic state. It is engaged in a covert war againt the Unity of Sed.
  • The Last Line. An austere, militaristic and intensely paranoid state at war with the Unity of Sed.
  • The Retreat. A multi-faith religious community.
  • Unity of Sed. Psychotic fanatics bent on spreading their twisted philosophy and views across the Distant Fringe. The Unity is capable of converting otherwise reasonable and rational individuals to its beliefs, vastly swelling its numbers. The state is utterly anarchic and chaotic, and it is unclear how it maintains any form of internal cohesion or strategic direction. More rapid expansion has been hampered by internal bickering and by resistance from the worlds it has occupied.
  • Yimin Jiti. Psionic. Withdrawn, passive, and outwardly maintain an appearance of a low TL.
