The territory dominated by Vargr governments.

  • The Vargr Extents is the general term used for the area of Charted Space dominated by Vargr polities, which are inherently stable and short-lived by the standards of Humaniti.
  • The term Vargr Extents additionally refers to those sectors with major Vargr populations, which are situated roughly coreward of the Imperium, and especially coreward of the Spinward Marches, Deneb, Corridor, and Vland sectors.

Astronavigational Codes[edit]

Astrogators from Imperial space primarily use the following codes when travelling the Extents.

  • The Vargr, of course, use few standardized codes of any sort, in their chaotic mess of a supra-polity.

Polity Survey Code Type Remarks
Vargr Extents Pre-Imperial NaVa No standard code Code still used to indicate Non-Aligned worlds with Vargr-majority or Vargr-dominant populations.
Vargr Extents 1st Survey (300) Va 2-ltr code Early IISS scouts simply used an informal Va code to indicate non-Imperial Vargr-held space.
Vargr Extents 2nd Survey (1065) VaEx 4-ltr code This generic code is sometimes used by astronavigators when a proper polity code is not yet known.
  • Due to the rapidly changing nature of Vargr polities, this sort of code is a necessity.

Client State

2nd Survey (1065) CsVE 4-ltr code Vargr client states (sub-polities) primarily use codes based upon their governing polity.

Constituent State Codes[edit]

The Constituent States of the Vargr Extents are in a constant state of flux (change), and these AAB article entries cannot be kept updated as quickly as the political map within the Extents changes. As of the last library update, these are the extant (present) polities within the Vargr Extents:

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Vargr Extents are one of the most radically free supra-polities to be found within Charted Space. Many other sophont species enjoy freedom, but never to the extreme ends that the Vargr do. Where other species like a fairly centralized government authority, the Vargr have a contrarian or anti-authoritarian streak... Where other species prefer stability at the cost of a little freedom, the Vargr vehemently disagree. Where other peoples have a dominant or mostly unified supra-culture, the Vargr take it to the other extreme: They believe in pervasive poly-diversity, a belief that there is always room in the universe for another type of life, another type of government, another social arrangement, new genetic experimentation... And another of everything else! The Vargr are an amicable and inimical species at the same time. One political philosopher once described the Vargr as a hyper-diverse species with pure chaos as a culture.

A. Goals: 1116[edit]

The only cohesive forces in the Extents are:

  • A Fierce Racial Pride
  • The result of that racial pride, a slight tendency towards Racial Cooperation

Much like Humaniti, Vargr have strong egos and strive to achieve great accomplishments and glories.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The regions inhabited by Vargr, generally to coreward of the Imperium.

  • Vargr are a far-flung race of intelligent aliens, roughly humanoid in nature, although genetically derived from carnivore-chaser stock. The Vargr are, by nature, pack animals, but continuing rivalry between the various established packs have made a united Vargr empire impossible.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

There is no central Vargr government; indeed, there is no governmental type that can be said to be "typically Vargr".

  • Every conceivable form of governmental organization can be found somewhere in the Vargr Extents.
  • The higher the level of the Vargr government, the more unstable it becomes because of the difficulty of obtaining consent of all Vargr involved.

Military & Intelligence (Force Projection)[edit]

Due to the Vargr penchant to not form large, stable governments, Vargr, as a race, have great difficulty maintaining large, organized militaries on the interstellar level.

  • Vargr armed forces have a much greater tendency to organize as mercenaries or corsairs (pirates).
  • However, like empires everywhere, the Vargr also require militaries to apply force to belligerents, and every Vargr empire to date has formed a competent military (...until it eventually fell).

A. Ground Forces: 1116[edit]

  • By individual polities.

Calendar & Timekeeping (Chronology)[edit]

Due to the Vargr penchant to not form large, stable governments, Vargr, as a race, have not developed any one, standard calendar or time-keeping system. Instead, the Vargr have developed dozen of different calendars and time-keeping systems.

  • The Vargr have no accurate calendar, so dating is meaningless, however a Vargr "year" is ~1.03 Solomani years.
  • See Date Conversion for more information.

As in other things, the Vargr acknowledge no universal calendar. Individual planets impose years based on their own planet's movements; sometimes these standards are imposed across larger areas of space, but the is no true Vargr "standard year". Calendars date from whatever event the local populace cares to choose as a starting point. Imperial historians tend to assign dates in one of two forms, either according to the Imperial calendar, or based upon the Diaspora (Gvegh Vargr: gzokdae) or invention of interstellar travel by the Vargr in the year -3810. This latter is frequently used in giving dates to events in Vargr history.

Mathematics: 1116[edit]

The Vargr use a Base-10 system of mathematics, including mathematical logic, arithmetic, statistics, particle mechanics, and other branches of mathematics.

Sciences: 1116[edit]

The Vargr possess an advanced knowledge of the sciences that includes:

  • A formalized method of scientific inquiry.
  • Lair (planetary) and Space sciences, including astronomy, cosmology, and geosciences.
  • Social sciences, including psychology and sociology.
  • Life sciences, including biology.

Cultural Regions: 1116[edit]

The Vargr Extents can be roughly divided into seven areas.

  • The following coarse ethnic groupings of Vargr (defined by similarities in laguage, culture, and physiological characteristics) are recognized by most astrographers:
Vargr Extents Cultural Regions
# Cult. Region Demographics Language/s Polities Sector/s Overlap/s Notes
1. Aekhu Races: Language/s: Polities: Sectors: Overlap Sectors: Attitudes along this frontier are marked by sharp contrasts regarding religion, morality, patriotism, violence, and honor.
  • Inconsistency from world to world is about the only thing that is consistent.
  • This region also differs strongly with the inner Vargr regions around Lair in that change is constant and real, consistently breaking from set patterns, and more than any other region.
2. Gvegh Races: Language/s: Polities: Sectors: Overlap Sectors: Vargr were attracted to this area for the interaction with the Zhodani Consulate.
  • Interstellar trade is particularly strong thoughout this length: some would call it feverish.
  • At the same time, this tends to be the most politically volatile region of Vargr space.
  • States, while often large, are very short lived, and their boundries constantly shift.
  • Wars are a regular occurrence.
  • On an individual level, Gvegh Vargr have historically had a stronger inclination to be mercurial and rash.
  • This area also has a stronger occurrence of psionically-talented Vargr.
3. Irilitok Races: Language/s: Polities: Sectors: Overlap Sectors:
  • None
Especially since the Julian War, this group is known for having the most cooperative inclinations with humaniti.
  • They also tend to be the most comfortable Vargr for humans to deal with.
  • Elsewhere, Vargr and humans generally segregate themselves into their own societies.
  • In this region, the division between Vargr and human societies is blurred, and on some worlds all but absent.
4. Logaksu Races: Language/s: Polities: Sectors: Overlap Sectors:
  • None
This is an irregular bubble around Lair about 20 to 30 parsecs in radius.
  • The region has normal volatility for Vargr space, but a distinct stability remains inherent in the patterns.
  • Governments superficially change, but remain similar in form and boundaries.
  • Merchant companies come and go, but the trading lanes tend to stay the same.
  • Even styles follow recognizeable cycles of varying length.
5. Ovaghoun Races: Language/s: Polities: Sectors: Overlap Sectors: These regions were rich Imperial regions taken over by the Vargr during the Vargr Pillaging (-2400 to -1700).
  • While the region is predominatly Vargr, the sparse Vilani population was not significantly displaced.
  • The original Vargr immigrants were pressed into the surrouding areas, and to this day still tend to collect in densely populated fringe communities, with the human populations living at the center of the older, larger communities.
  • Human presence and involvement have done much to stabilize the political environment. In fact, the Vargr have adopted much of the Vilani culture into their own, sometime taking on patterns very familiar to Imperials.
  • At the same time, the Vargr often resent having to live "in the humans' shadow". The ownership of companies, land, and oftentimes political positions frequently reside disproportionately in the hand of humans.
6. Suedzuk Races: Language/s: Polities: Sectors: Overlap Sectors:
  • None
These Vargr were displaced from Gashikan and Mendan by violence soon after the Sack of Gashikan.
  • This Vargr Enclaves region is not heavily populated, and the Suedzuk form interstellar states less often.
  • This group tends to remain isolated and disinclined to involve itself in affairs spinward.
  • Humans in Mendan and Gashikan call them "the Red Vargr", alluding to both the occurrence of reddish fur and the blame given them for the bloodshed resulting from the Sack of Gashikan.
  • Humans well integrated into a racially mixed society, and even some Vargr, treat the Suedzuk with distain.
  • Suedzuk packs are not as loose as elsewhere, tending to be closed and enduring.
  • Packs of adolescents often remain intact throughout their lives, forming strong interpersonal bonds.
7. Urzaeng Races: Language/s: Polities: Sectors: Overlap Sectors:
  • None
This region came into being when Vargr rounded the rift during the Vargr Pillaging (-2400 to -1700).
  • Expansion of the Urzaeng into the Imperial territories was not as deep because of the wars with the Second Empire of Gashikan.
  • The Urzaeng have a propensity for violence and a disdain for weakness.
  • Runts, elderly, and chronically ill are usually collected into separate communities.
  • Someone with a temporary illness is wise to seclude himself from the public until he recovers.
  • Urzaeng are also known for being very territorial and protective of their space.
  • Their trading ships are particularly wide ranging and are marked for their spaciousness: double occupancy staterooms are almost unheard of.

Cultural Regions:

  1. Aekhu. Approximately follows the Imperial border, including Gvurrdon, Tuglikki, and Provence.

  3. Irilitok. Covers Mendan, Gashikan, and parts of Trenchans and Amdukan.
  4. Logaksu. This is an irregular bubble around Lair about 20 to 30 parsecs in radius.
  5. Ovaghoun. Includes the trailing quarter of Provence, Windhorn, and Meshan.
  6. Suedzuk. Covers Amdukan, Trenchans, and trailing.
  7. Urzaeng. This region halos the coreward end of the Windorn Rift, including Fa Dzaets and Gzaekfueg, and reaches into Meshan.
