History & Background (Historical Linguistics)[edit]

The region has normal volatility for Vargr space, but a distinct stability remains inherent in the patterns. Governments superficially change, but remain similar in formand boundaries. Merchant companies come and go, but the trading lanes tend to stay the same. Even styles follow recognizeable cycles of varying length.

  • However, the region has gone through periods of cataclysmic change where all recognizable patterns and cycles were disrupted. These periods occured in -2400, -1400, and -200. Each lasted about a century and divided distinctive epochs in the region's history.
  • Imperial xenologists believe the region is overdue for another period of great change.
