History & Background[edit]

Major Historical Events Timeline[edit]

Settled at about the same time, the many worlds have progressed at about the same rate technologically, and the worlds are remarkably homogenous socially and culturally. Nevertheless, the relationships between the many worlds have undergone many changes over the centuries. Worlds join together into confederations; those interstellar governments provide a safety of numbers. The precise nature of such confederations ranges from a simple trading community (with preference to its members) to a powerful empire.

In 852, the Sword Worlds Confederation was established with its capital at Joyeuse. It participated in the Third Frontier War on the side of the Zhodani; after the war, a coup by an anti-Imperial faction transferred the capital to Gram.

The perfomance of the Sword Worlds forces during the Fifth Frontier War was faltering and suffered from a lack of cohesive leadership. Following their defeat by the Imperials - and the occupation of Dyrnwyn, Beater, and Biter - the worlds along the Imperial border broke off from the Confederation to create a pro-Imperial puppet state (called the Border Worlds), with its capital at Sting.

All members of the Sword Worlds maintain independent local navies; they patrol their own systems for the protection of trade. The Confederation Charter calls for the confederalization of these forces in times of need; local admirals are then chosen (based on their homeworld's financial, equipment, and troop contributions) to lead fleets on operations.
