Victory (RD 2017) is a non-agricultural, preindustrial, icy vacuum world, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

  • Its surface is ice-capped with little or no atmosphere and nearly all of its water frozen.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It is a world working toward being an industrial powerhouse but lacks an adequate workforce to do so.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • This world toils under the control of a military government with conditions reflecting that situation including curtailed civil rights and limited freedoms.
  • It is a member of the Principality of Caledon in the Caledon Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector.
  • This world has a nearby Naval Base, usually associated with military starships.
  • This world has a nearby Military Base, usually associated with military ground forces.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Victory is currently the site of a major trade route, the Scotian Nexus, linking the Principality to the Imperium by way of the Imperial world of Concorde (Reaver's Deep 2218).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It is a member of the Principality of Caledon in the Caledon Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector.

Other Data[edit]

The star designated Ildrathir was named by the first interstellar explorers to settle in the region, representatives of the aggressive and militaristic culture of Drexilthar (Reaver's Deep 0206). Prior to the expansion of Caledon (Reaver's Deep 1815), Drexilthar controlled a fairly substantial empire in the Deep. The Ildrathir system represented their furthest penetration coreward. The third moon of the outermost gas giant, Druthere, was established as an advanced military outpost after scouts discovered the fledgling Principality of Caledon, which at that time (-86) controlled only a handful of star systems. The Caledonian worlds were targeted for a full takeover by elements of the Iltharan Star Navy.

  • The Principality, however, acted first - a response that went down in history as the Iltharan War.
  • The Caledonian Royal Intelligence Service determined that a large Drexiltharian fleet was preparing to move on the Rob Roy system, an initial assault on the Principality.
  • With a handful of ships, Admiral the Earl of Strathmore launched a pre-emptive strike against Ildrathir, running into unexpectedly large forces orbiting Druthere's satellite. In a hard-fought battle, the Iltharan forces were defeated. The moon was occupied and Prince Jameison decreed that it would henceforth be known as "Victory" in commemoration of the battle. Caledonian aid to dissidents caused a rebellion to erupt in the Empire and Drexilthar was never again in a position to renew direct warfare with the Principality.
  • (See Iltharan War for more details).
  • Every so often, rumors spread through the colony of the presence on Victory (or, possibly, another of Druthere’s satellites) of some secret cache of Iltharan equipment or weaponry. No two rumors have ever agreed on the contents, location, or fate of this cache, but the persistence of the basic story makes it probable that there is some basis in fact for the whole claim. The stories have sparked searches by treasure hunters, archeologists, and even a few Maxwellian sympathizers who hope to turn up an arsenal or a hanger stocked with old but serviceable warships. Such searches have not, to public knowledge, proven successful.
