Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Renkard Union is (...or was) an interstellar, multi-system government located in the Gateway Sector.

  • Once a trader's union in Gateway sector embracing some twenty worlds within the Riftin and Farina subsectors and across the Gateway Sector border into the neighboring sector of Luretiir!girr, the Renkard Union was recently absorbed by the much larger and more powerful Xuruk'xaar'keer!, the so-called "Xuruk Empire".


Primarily organized for trade and self-defense, the Union was peaceful, though it maintained a powerful space fleet for use against the predations of pirates. The fleet was sufficient for escort duty and protection against pirate raids, but proved inadequate against more powerful opponents.

Battle of Xabthar[edit]

In 1106, a crucial battle at Xabthar was lost by Renkard Grand Admiral Hugo Vandamien, and K'kree ground forces were able to land and seize the Union's capital at Silest. Since that time, the worlds of the Union have been completely; dominated by the Xaar'keer! forces of the K'kree warlord called Kaxk, also known as the Lords of Thunder.

It should be noted in passing that Kaxk's clan Ktiir!t'krik is not formally acknowledged as part of the K'kree T't'tkahk Xeng Kirr, "the Two Thousand Worlds", an empire which occupies all or part of some fourteen full sectors beyond Luretir!girr, the sector lying between K'kree Space and Gateway Sector.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

The Renkard Union government is characterized as having an average degree of centralization, which has difficulty setting uniform policies that direct the entire multi-system state, but gives a high degree of freedom to local/planetary governments. The Renkard Union government is usually classified as a Union, a form of a Federation.

K'kree Domination[edit]

The worlds of the Union have been merged with the empire of the Ktiir!t'krik, which is now the single largest political entity of Luretir!girr Sector. Each planet is now ruled by a Steppelord loyal to Kaxk. The empire is also commonly known as the Xuruk Empire, a misnomer since the K'kree word "Xuruk" refers to any collective of several herds in a given geographical area.

K'kree laws that prohibit the eating of meat and that impose what amounts to second-class citizenship on all non-K'kree inhabitants of the Union have transformed the thriving state into a police tyranny. Many former pirates have entered the lucrative smuggling trade along Renkard's borders, their principal cargo refugees from the Union's worlds.
