History and Background[edit]

Coreward terminus of Saeghvung–Turley–Exile Run.

Saeghvung - then called Black Pearl - was one of the Glorious Twelve, the term given to the twelve human systems that stood against the Vargr Pillaging.

A beautiful world largely inhabited by impoverished and feral Vargr cultures, Saeghvung is civilized only in scattered TL 6 townships and the startown (and ‘planetary capital’) of Tzashgrouroerd. Tzashgrouroerd herself is only a hundred years old: all of the other towns are no older than four decades. The towns are supported by Vargr ‘racial uplift’ groups, who are attempting to kick–start the development of Saeghvung, to match the human worlds of Sahale (Empty Quarter 2227) and Turley (Empty Quarter 2523).

Pirate risk: As the end–point of the Saeghvung–Turley–Exile Run, aligned with neither the Imperium nor the Protectorate, and without any local system security force, the Vargr–dominated Saeghvung system is simply crawling with pirates. The Protectorate’s Star Legion has permanently stationed a small flotilla here, shepherding incoming traffic and racing to save misjumped starships before they are ripped apart by hungry raiders.

Also to be found here is a hard–bitten resident agent of Duke Yogesh, with up–to–date information on Cotan and Nisaga subsectors. He is sure to clear up rumors of vast pirates roaming the Hegemony: “Pirates? Ha For every pirate, there are five Star Legion ships looking to give him a bad day.” However, he does have some good advice for the PCs on how to deal with the few pirates in the region: “Never let them board your ship.” Fortunately, the pirates here tend to be low–tech (TL 9, and a few TL 10’s), and operate in ones or twos. Unfortunately, there are a ton of pirates in the gap between the Republic and the Hegemony…
