Rumors persist that the ancients played a role in the uplift of this savage species. Their fondness for killing each other has slowed their ability to expand. One rumor is that this was the result of a later Hiver manipulation to prevent them from laying waste to countless civilizations. No Droyne are found within their territory in modern times.
Significant populations of the following races (sophont species) reside within the Korsumug Empire:
- Humaniti (Human races)
History & Background (Dossier)
The empire formed 3,500 years ago when the planet Korsu was united under the rule of the Zerp, an alien species. Once they achieved FTL travel they began to conquer other worlds. Periodic civil wars interrupt this steady expansive advance. They are ruthless in the pursuit of wealth and are exploitative of conquered territories.
Fleet Marines and Occupation Garrisons use the:
- 10 dton TL–10 KE010 Grundel class AFV,
- 8 dton TL–10 KE005 Jaibok class G Carrier, and the
- 6 dton TL–10 KE006 Gruneg class Speeder.
Marine infantry formations uses vacuum suits for protected forces duty. Those skilled in laser weapons are sought after for sniper/scout/FO duties. Cutlasses, revolvers, cloth armor and reflect still predominate. Army troopers carry ACRs, and wear CES. Officers, NCOs and vehicles crews are often seen with compact, folding stock bull-pup layout 9mm SMGs, and 9mm auto pistols. A strange assortment of daggers, blades and swords find their way into soldiers arsenals as well, despite efforts to root out individual preferences. Tactical skills are good, but artillery and heavy weapon skills are lacking. A significant percentage of troopers can fix and operate the tracked ATVs and AFVs, and several can drive and service Grav vehicles. Colonial guards are locally raised militias units of inferior quality troops. They field "elite" units of laser scouts equipped with laser carbines, smoke grenades and flat angular slabs of matte black ablative armor. They typically deploy from unarmed and lightly armored wheeled ATVs.
Strategically it is not the quality of these ships, vehicles or soldiers, it is the staggering quantity. Other states in the region field larger, more dangerous vessels. It is the endless supplies of these vessels that make them so dangerous. The waves are difficult to resist. Enemy forces can not be everywhere all at once.
