Larger empires are beginning to exert more influence over the smaller neighboring states. An early colonial terraforming effort goes wrong as the atmospheric modifications result in massive blizzards that bury the regions around the star port. The event is commemorated by a famous dance troupe, this Wintery Love piece remains popular among certain noble circles to this day. A famous pirate Black Sam loses his corsair to an orbital collision with what may have been a space mine. The local viceroy orders local ships to search the area for wreckage which is rumored to include several tons of treasure.
