History and Background[edit]

A world with seven masters, the major nations that vie for control over Ardamashii have been waging war off and on for decades. While tensions remain high on the planet’s surface, one thing that the nations have negotiated successfully has been the establishment of an independent starport facility to serve as an interface with interstellar traders. The control of this facility has been placed under the joint auspices of the Imperial Starport Authority and the Imperial Diplomatic Corps, as Ardamashii’s nations could not arrive at any other equitable solution. Thus far, the wartime activities have remained on the planet's surface, allowing safe passage to interstellar traders through the orbital facilities of the world’s starport.

Many of the national powers typically engage off-world mercenaries for special missions, providing a recurring market for mercenary companies within the Gamma Quadrant of Empty Quarter Sector.

The Travellers' Aid Society cannot attest to the safety of non-military personnel descending to the planet’s surface, although avoiding battle fronts should keep most travelers out of danger.
