The Bridge of Destiny is a trade route, an astrographic feature, located within Knoellighz Sector.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The so-called Bridge of Destiny, named shortly after the solidification of borders between the polities of Knoellighz Sector, is a winding Jump-1 main stretching across four subsectors.

  • It is marked by a trade thoroughfare, Corsair piracy, Hunters' Bawn privateering and the occasional Naval skirmish.
  • It is a valuable trade corridor and as such is hotly contested for as many worlds as each polity can safely conquer and hold.

One challenge held by Knoellighz Sector merchants is to do business from one end of the Bridge of Destiny to the other, making a mercantile pilgrimage of the entire length. Those who are capable of trade the entire length are termed merchant princes. This is of course hindered by the four polties that currently occupy the Jump-1 main, their Quiet Wars, Corsair presence and corporate competition which can be fierce.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

With some non-aligned worlds on the Bridge of Destiny asserting their independence, the Bridge has a few gaps of no-Vargr's land to intermingle and conduct trade, smuggling cargo swaps and other clandestine maneuvers.

  • It is over the Bridge of Destiny that a majority of trade between four of five polities in the Sector is conducted.

Though Virus arrives quickest through the Democracy of Greats, it is through Gvurrdon and over the Bridge of Destiny that the Vampire fleets rampage Coreward. This is the same route that Regency and the Zhodani Consulate deliver the quarantine protocols that slowly liberate Knoellighz Sector, allowing it to recover though not every world eradicates every Strain. See Serue (Kn 1221) (world) for their involvement in dealing with Virus.
