History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Gaknau Val system is home to a Society of Equals naval base, reflecting its positional importance between the high population worlds of Aegadh (Gvurrdon 1317) and Lloursouth (Gvurrdon 1717). The prevention of illicit piracy is paramount to the government of the Society of Equals, and this base plays in important role in that mission.

Licit piracy, on the other hand, is carried on along the borders of the Society against worlds not aligned with it. The Society Navy takes no action whatsoever against such plundering, and in fact supplements its own revenues by occasionally engaging in it.

Gaknau Val itself is owned by a Vargr corporation active throughout the Gvurrdon sector. The corporation exports fish and minerals from this watery world. No fixed bases have been installed on the world, and all personnel and equipment are imported on a regular basis.
