History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

A high population industrialized world in the Keum Subsector of the Massilia Sector.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Enid, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

Other Data[edit]

Enid (Massilia 0113) was originally colonized by the Vilani of the First Imperium. It did not do well under the Rule of Man, and by -1600 it had lost all space-faring industry. In -1565, an expedition sponsored by Emperor Francis settled on the planet, which experienced a brief renaissance. But with the loss of outside support after the final collapse of the Rule of Man in -1526, the decline resumed. Enid fell to a tech level of 6 and stabilized there. The planet was recontacted by the Third Imperium in 20 and the megacorporation Sternmetal Horizons, received an exclusive mandate to develop the system. For 60 years, Sternmetal milked the system dry under the guise of developing it. Although the system during that time rose to TL10 -- borderline TL11 in some areas -- most of the crucial infrastructure was owned by Sternmetal, and the benefits of the higher technology never seem to reach most of the population.

  • In 80, Enid petitioned Artemsus to be allowed to take over all of Sternmetal's assets in the system, alleging that the corporation has gotten its initial investment returned a hundred-fold already. As the petition was supported by Marquis Errol of Enid, Artemsus appointed a Lord High Commissioner to examine the situation and make a recommendation concerning the petition.
