History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Tchien (pronounced "chin", for the t is silent) is a pleasant world riding the innermost orbit of its primary. The world is one of three free worlds and an asteroid belt of some value. The mainworld is a young planet that possesses a fair amount of volcanism, though it has a mostly breathable atmosphere. This seismic activity created a massive eruption about 1 million years ago, covering one of its continents in thick magma, and filling the air with poisonous ash and gas. The filtering out from this disaster is ongoing, and the local biosphere is still recovering from the subsequent mass extinction.

The world was settled by the Vilani Makhidkarun megacorporation as a military outpost to protect its lanthanum and osmium mines on Gagaradir. The world was never formally claimed by the Third Imperium, and the company's representatives made sure it had no reason to do so. The local atmosphere is noxious, and a bit poisonous, and this gave the corporation enough bad press to keep away other prospective colony groups. The colonists are actually the descendants of a mercenary "filibuster" group that took the planet in a bloody attack in 1100, sponsored by the company, that took the world from a Vargr corsair group that had disputed Makhidkarun's claim on Gagaradir. The attack drove off the corsairs, though the survivors had continued to attack both worlds in revenge until the Collapse.

The local population had been settled in their new colony for a generation when news of the Collapse reached the Regency. Makhidkarun had sold off its interest on Gagaradir during the Rebellion to Sternmetal Horizons, and that company felt no compassion or obligation to its neighbors. The new owners cut off the subsidy that the Vilani were paying the colonists, and the Denebian government had previously refused to intervene. Thus when the Abandonment began, the colonists tried to stay on their world, and sued the Regency government to prevent their evacuation. They managed to stave off the government for several years, until the Rape of Trin convinced about half of them to accept evacuation. Those that remained have violently resisted further evacuation attempts, and their survivors and descendants have formed a hardcore fascist government around a violent dictator known as "Der Kapiten".
