History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This was part of the County of Jewell until the end of the Third Frontier War[2].

This planet's civilization has totally collapsed, being currently dominated by what are in effect "biker gangs". Formerly TL–A, now more like TL–7, the sole spot of civilization is the fortified Starport. Surrounded by a ring of walls and moats plus automated armed towers, interstellar trade is sporadic at best. Food and weapons are the primary imports, with the negative reaction of Starport Authority to any heavy weapons or grav systems going to "the locals"

History-Milieu: 1120[edit]

During the Fifth Frontier War a Sword Worlds "Gram" class cruiser is forced to abandon ship at Gougeste, and the survivors quickly dominate the world. In response the Gougestra Liberation Force begins fighting to take back their home from the Sword Worlders.

History-Milieu: New Era[edit]

In the Regency era the world is spelled Gougheste.
