Foreven Sector.

Meta-History & Background[edit]

Marc Miller has officially ruled that Foreven Sector will be left forever undeveloped, to serve as a "referee's private reserve".

  • This sector is explicitly set aside as a GM's preserve by Game Designers' Workshop. There is very little canonical information about it and no more will be officially established.

The area will not be T5SS reviewed.

List: Foreven Sector Versions (non-canon)

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The area was explored by the Zhodani possibly millennia before any other sophont species arrived. For some unknown reason, Zhodani borders in the area have been fixed. Many academics want to know why.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The area has an ancient but largely unknown lineage. The Zhodani know, but they are not telling.

Sometimes contraband artifacts from this area make their way to the black markets of nearby sectors. Some of these objects show signs of the Ancients as well as possible Kursae derivation. No one knows for sure. Something happened here long ago. That's for sure.

Native Sophonts: 1116[edit]

The following races (sophont species) are believed to have originated within this area:

Demographics: 1116[edit]

Significant populations of the following races (sophont species) reside within this area:

Notes: The same major aliens that can be found in the Spinward Marches can also be found here; Aslan, Vargr, and Droyne and Chirpers may be encountered, although Vargr will probably be encountered less frequently, and Aslan (and Zhodani) more frequently, than in the Spinward Marches.

Historical Eras[edit]

General Overview: No information yet available.

History-Era: Mileu 1100[edit]

The enigmatic and far ranging Ancients explored Foreven around -300,000. As elsewhere, they built many strange and wondrous artifacts, performed seemingly impossible feats and imported humans for purposes unknown. They then proceeded to destroy themselves in the Final War, leaving the remains of their bases and the primitive humans in isolation for millennia.

  • The Zhodani were the first race to follow the Ancients into Foreven, with the earliest forays being made sometime around -4500. Initial Zhodani interest in Foreven was limited but grew as the years passed. Between -2000 and -1000, the Zhodani Consulate, in its usual way, slowly and carefully expanded into the sector and came to encompass a little over five subsectors along the coreward border. The Zhodani didn't stop there though. They continued to send trade and exploration missions into Foreven and beyond. The Zhodani weren't the only ones to travel Foreven during this 1000 year period. The Darrians and the Aslan explored as well, although neither race developed extensive colonies.
  • In -798, the Zhodani established a permanent outpost on Avalar, then called Chodlot. This supported exploration leading into the Malikhar Crescent, also sometimes referred to as the Beyond. A community formed around the outpost and grew into a state, although without formal membership in the Consulate. Chodlot became an important jumping off point for the Zhodani's various pursuits.
  • It was not until the 500s that Imperial colonists began to settle in Foreven. Early expeditions were often backed by Imperial megacorporations seeking to expand their resource and customer base. As they established themselves, they drew colonists from the Imperial interior, much as was the case in the Spinward Marches. With the consent of the government of Chodlot, Imperials established the Avalar Colony in the unoccupied regions of that world. The colony grew to dominate Chodlot in less than 100 years.
  • Zhodani ships travelling to and from the Malikhar Crescent regularly traversed the chain of stars that included Avalar as a major stop. By the early 600s, the chain also supported a trade route between the Aslan Hierate and the Zhodani Consulate. The influence of Zhodani culture, despite the influx of Imperials to the sector, remained strong on worlds along this route and particularly on Avalar due to its early Zhodani origins.
  • With the beginnings of the Frontier Wars (589), the Zhodani nurtured even closer relations with the systems along the Avalar Route. Toward the end of the 700s, the Consulate encouraged and assisted Avalar in uniting the worlds to form the Avalar Consulate. The intent was not only to protect the Avalar Route from commerce raiders but to also restrict Imperial access to the Far Frontiers sector.
  • Likewise, the Imperium attempted to draw worlds to its side as a hedge against the Zhodani through a program of technical and economic aid. The effort resulted in a number of individual systems becoming Imperial client states although nothing on the scale, in terms of size, of the Avalar Consulate developed. Both the Zhodani and the Imperials tended to concentrate the majority of their efforts on the Marches during the Frontier Wars so they spared Foreven much of the attendant damage. Conflicts, when they occurred, often involved incidental naval encounters, tradewar and covert operations rather than full scale military campaigns.
  • During the 700s, other interstellar states also formed in these frontier sectors. Among them were the worlds in Foreven and the Far Frontiers settled by the Hamadurs. These people were descended from a mixture of Solomani and Vilani, and came from Shiiki (Gushemege 1236). Their homeworld suffered much after the collapse of the Rule of Man. The coming of the Third Imperium brought prosperity for some, and an opportunity to escape for others. Sharing a common heritage, the Hamadur colonies formed the Mnemosyne Principality straddling the Foreven/Far Frontiers border.

History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

The Domain of Deneb has been cut off from the rest of the Imperium. War, as a result of the Rebellion, has fragmented the interior of the Third Imperium and Vargr raiders have severed communications and trade lanes through Corridor. If Deneb is to survive, Archduke Norris must turn his attention from events to trailing and focus on what lies to spinward.

  • In the past, the systems to spinward have followed their own path and maintained few ties to the Imperium, if any at all. Trade with the Human Client States has been modest and political interaction has been limited to the context of the Zhodani threat. Faced with the Rebellion, Norris seeks to change this.
  • Just as Cleon I did in the early years of the Imperium, Norris is sending his Scouts beyond the frontier. Their mission is to assist those friendly to the Domain and develop new friendships.
  • The effort is strongly supported by the megacorporations. Cut off from their headquarters and principal markets in the interior, they too have begun to expand spinward to avoid stagnation and collapse. Working from key worlds in Foreven, their trade explorers range far beyond Deneb.
  • Although many welcome the Imperials, others resist their arrival as an unwelcome intrusion. The most disturbed is the Zhodani Consulate. Having fought for centuries to check Imperial expansionism, the Imperium now threatens to sweep across its rimward frontier. Unfortunately, the Consulate's resources are needed elsewhere, so it must rely on its allies, like the Avalar Consulate, and its intelligence and frontier services to deal with this crisis. The local provincial governor has recognized the need to bring in more capable people than those he has presently. His request for personnel is currently under consideration by higher powers.
