Description / Specifications
Foralin Subsector lies within Far Home Sector and is named for the Foralin system and its red giant primary star. It is a relatively undeveloped backwater with few advanced worlds. The Spinward Drift Star Lane crosses through its the coreward half, while its rimward regions are considered to lie within the Great Void. The Ha'shaka system, lying on the Subsector's rimward-trailing border, marks the spinward limit of Sath exploration.

Other Astrographic Features
- The Cauldron Nebula, lying within Cauldron Sector, some 102 parsecs to coreward-trailing, can be seen as a star-studded luminous region in night-time skies from all of the worlds of the Subsector.
- Basilisk's Eye (1723 Tarchon Sector). The extremely luminous white supergiant star, lying around 137 parsecs to coreward-trailing, can be clearly seen from all of the worlds of the Subsector.
- Demon's Eye (1621 Far Home Sector). The intensely luminous blue supergiant star, lying approximately 9 parsecs to coreward at its closest point, can be clearly seen from all of the worlds of the Subsector].
One system within Foralin Subsector remains officially unexplored as of 5600AD. It lies four parsecs from the Distant Fringe proper, within the Great Void, placing it beyond the range of conventional vessels. It is likely that governments and organisations know significantly more about it than is made available to the general public.

- Data drawn from the DSP Listing. The listed name is the generally accepted name of the system, but it is not in any sense official.
Population: 178.977 million Sophonts.
- Humaniti (Human races)
- Non-Human Races
- Hoppers: approximately 7.8 million (0.04% of the population), largely concentrated within insular self-sufficient communities within established urban areas on human worlds. Most have never visited Fedan, their ancestral homeworld, and many have developed unique customs and habits.
- Temelik: 20,000 (less than 0.1% of the population), widely dispersed throughout human-dominated space.
- Anglish The language of the Firstworlds. A direct descendant of Fleet Anglic, widely spoken throughout the Distant Fringe. Most people know a few words and phrases of Anglish.
- Meranto. The language of the Rimward Federation, closely related to Fleet Anglic. It is not widely spoken outside of the Pel Avena cluster – many native Meranto speakers can also speak Anglish.
- Padori. A direct descendant of Fleet Anglic, widely spoken within the Pador-Aredian cluster and common throughout rimward half of Far Home Sector.

There are no Naval bases in the subsector, no Scout bases, and no Way stations. The highest population world is Saldazar (Far Home 1633). The highest tech level is B at Incal (Far Home 0931) and Saldazar (Far Home 1633). The average technology level is 6 (with most between 2 and 9).
The Non-Aligned Human-dominated worlds in Foralin encompasses ten worlds with a population of 178 million. The highest population world is Saldazar (Far Home 1633).

There is one unclaimed or unexplored system in Foralin Subsector.
History & Background
Foralin Subsector saw almost no activity by humans prior to the establishment of the Third Confederation, and what little development there was abruptly ended with the onset of the Dark Age, nearly two thousand years ago. Following the Renaissance period survivor worlds were recontacted, scavengers picked over the few remains that there were, and hardy pioneers looked to the empty systems and the opportunities they presented. Almost all expansion and growth within the region is relatively modern, beginning during the so-called Golden Age and continuing with the nebulous Development Organizations and the rise of polities.
- A strong social divide exists between wealthy and aristocratic Fives, descended from the original settlers and crew of the Last Armada, and Gens, individuals whose ancestors were grown in GenPods and raised by Hoppers.
Major Historical Events Timeline:
Some of the more important historical events that have affected this area include:
- 2255AD: The Last Armada arrives in the Demon Cluster.
- 2500AD: The monolithic and anti-expansionist Second Confederation is founded. Settlement within the Demon Cluster is restricted to its coreward regions: Foralin Subsector remains unexplored and unpopulated.
- ca 3200: very limited exploration within the rimward regions of the Demon Cluster.
- ca 3500AD: Sporadic but gradual settlement throughout the Subsector.
- 3730AD: Voyagers arrive and devastate the Subsector. The Dark Age begins.
- 4549AD: The Voyagers depart and the Dark Age ends. The Renaissance sees the first steps back into space.
- ca 4900AD: Golden Age. Space travel becomes relatively commonplace.
- 4933AD: Formation of Rimward Opportunities Development Organization.
- 5184AD: "Hollow Opportunities", following the secession of the Pel Avena Cluster from Rimward Opportunities.
- 5350AD: Rimward Opportunities ceases to exist as an entity.
- 5600AD: Data for Foralin Subsector is published in the DSP Listing.
