History-Era: Rebellion Era[edit]

The Rebellion, with the Sector a battleground between Dulinor, Strephon, Lucan and the New Ziru Sirka is seen as just one more example of this history. Hardly surprisingly locals have developed a healthy distrust of foreign powers, and a preference to be left alone to get on with its own life.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

As the stronghold of Strephon, Rure and surounding subsectors had been a safe area. And unlike the wilds, where virus was not able to settle, it found excellent facilities, naval bases, shipyards, and a working economies. Those of the awaken, who not suicided in the first weeks, managed to work together to maintain, what was left after the primary infect. Vland and Ilish had seen similar developments, but without interstellar trade, high technologies like the awken need, was not possible to sustain. The decline stopped immediately within a year, when Muecke and Silviana Novalis came back with a fleet of over 400 liners and traders 1138. Strephon more in fear of the Empress Wave than of its military opponents, had distributed more JumpStart caches in the Rurevayn during the rebellion, than in any other region before 1116. The recollection of the caches, not only containing the broad knowledge of the imperial technologies, but also highly automated fabrication facilities for producing design samples, allowed Rurevayn to take a head start into a new era.

The Rurevayn can now be considered the heard of the wilds. The Gushemege Merchantile Guild founded in -327, and later restricted to covered operation, is now operating between Zhodani Consulate, Regina, Vland, the Hub, Diaspora and the Rim, and could be considered the largest spanning trade network of the modern times. While showing a clean skirt in Rure, its known that control of trade justifies anything is the Guilds motto outside. So the guild takes its part in discrediting the Rurevayn, as its know of drug smuggling in the Regency and slavery in Diaspora. So farer from Rure so more often the picture of a society who managed to survive the hard times, become overlay with rumors of humans being enslaved by vampires. And those who heard of the Rurevayn often call it the Trade Vampire.

In 1206 the Regency started to build a fleet called "Vampire Hunter" official aimed for patrolling the Corridor. Moderate fractions immediately launched an diplomatic mission sending Gesmo-23C as the ambassador. So far it could be considered a failure. So Rure is now preparing for war not only in the Silkku (peoples army) for defending the home area, but also Pulehov Nunjki (foreign army) is openly discussing the anextion of the Islands as a forward defense. This hardliners attempt, that attack is the best defense, gained many of followers when an unofficial copy of a Regency Moot discussion was distributed in Rure. A well known RQS warhawk propagated the idea, that a clean way of disabling virus in a system also populated by humans who are collaboration with vampires, would be to nuke the world from orbit, to get rid of both same time.
