History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Entrope has switched allegiance between the Sword Worlds Confederation and the Darrian Confederation several times in the last five centuries. As of 1105 the system was occupied by the forces of the Sword Worlds, having been captured in the Fourth Frontier War. Entrope's infrastructure was heavily damaged in the latest fighting and its starport was destroyed. Due to continuing internal struggles, rebuilding has been impeded.

Despite the widespread belief that the Entropic Wars were primarily between the Darrians and the Sword Worlders, the truth is that neither part ever had the strength to conquer Entrope in the face of united opposition. Unfortunately, Entrope has been a deeply fractured society ever since a civil war in 587. In each instance when Entrope has been invaded, most of the "invading" has been performed by native Entropians, with either the Darrians or the Sword Worlds merely tipping the scales.

The starport is continually being repaired and just as continually sabotaged. Fuel and ship repair facilities may be available (usually is), but the uncertainty has prevented the Scouts from giving it a classification that reflects this.

History: Era: Rebellion[edit]

"When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers." The wars between the Darrians and the Sword Worlds had left this place in pretty sorry shape by the Civil War period. The outsystem is littered with the debris of past battles, and the local infrastructure had been shattered so many times that the natives had pretty much given up at trying to keep up with upkeep. The populace was so desperate in the wake of the world's final liberation from the Sword Worlds that it installed a popular dictatorship in an effort to effect rebuilding.

Entrope's current leader is Major Kerin Yoldat, a war hero who was responsible for the coup that swayed Entrope's ground forces to the Darrian side at the time of the invasion that retook the planet. Major Yoldat is still investigating former collaborators and Sword Worlds immigrants, expelling or imprisoning some of them. Weapons are not actually outlawed, but it takes a time consuming background check to get a permit to carry one.

Reconstruction has been very successful, but the dictatorship has become a hereditary post for the Yoldat family. Resistance to this increasingly unnecessary regime is so far muted, but widespread.

History: Era: Milieu 1120[edit]

As of the end of the Fifth Frontier War, Etrope became a member of the Darrian Confederation and is now ruled by Major Kerin Yoldat, a war hero who led the coup that threw out the Sword Worlders.

History: Era: Milieu 1248[edit]

Entrope (0720) is a member of the Darrian Confederation, but is also the home of the headquarters and offices of the League of Spinward States. As a result, its infrastructure and starport were massively improved, and a league naval base was established. At this point, Entrope is a hotbed of political activity, and significant delegations from League members and surrounding powers are common sights. Entrope's rulers have been careful to keep the League administration and bureaucracy separate from the world government. This is made much easier since the world’s capital is located well away from the main starport, and the League headquarters (and the naval base) are all built in and around the starport, with many offices located in the high port. The world's capital is now served by a secondary starport that handles a high load of traffic in its own right.
