History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ascalon (SR 1207) is an important high-population world located in Suleiman Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium and contains a Way Station. Ascalon is the highest population world in the subsector.

Despite being a marginal world, the Vilani settled Ascalon during the First Imperium because of its rich reserves of certain industrial metals. Ascalon became a major trading center and naval base during the Rule of Man, and many Terrans came to settle among the Vilani. During Long Night the Kingdom of Ascalon arose, a prosperous and stable nation founded on the principle of religious tolerance. During the reign of Empress Margaret II, the kingdom declared itself independent of the Solomani Sphere and called for Imperial protection.
