Gur sector includes part of the Two Thousand Worlds and a segment of the Lesser Rift.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Located along the Lesser Rift, Gur Sector is noteworthy, though not unique, for including the entire breadth of the rift within the sector. The edge of the Two Thousand Worlds occupies the subsectors along the rimward edge of the sector, while a handful of stars along the coreward edge of the rift fall into the sector as well. The coreward stars lie at the far trailing edge of settlement associated with the Julian Protectorate presence to spinward for nearly three thousand years, the Vargr, and low key exploration by the Third Imperium. The trans-rift colonies of the K'kree also lie just to spinward of Gur Sector, but K'kree exploration from the colonies is curtailed by long-standing tradition and the interpreted will of the Steppelord of the Two Thousand Worlds.

History: General Overview[edit]

The history of Gur Sector is divided just as its physical extent is, by the Lesser Rift.

  • Some time in the last 100,000 years, the Twaro (Twaroy/Gur 0201) rose to sentience on a world with a starkly divided night sky. While half of their sky was brightly starry, even featuring the broad band of glowing dust and star shine Humaniti would recognize as the Milky Way, the other half, muted by dark dust and distance, was a yawning void with only a few bright stars. This starkly divided and evocative night sky both inspired and frightened the Twaro, who would not seek space, or even the wonders of flight, for many millennia.
  • Across the Lesser Rift, the K'kree arose in neighboring Ruupiin Sector, and after many challenges, rose to space exploration with a holy mission. As parts of Gur Sector were easily reachable from the K'kree homeworld via even primitive Jump Drive, the K'kree came to the edge of the Lesser Rift early in their Crusade. Recognizing a natural barrier, they would explore along its edge for centuries, as advances made more of the edge, and eventually some of the stars out in the rift, accessible. There was no path across the Rift in Gur, however, which led the K'kree to settle Gur Sector in relative security.
  • While the K'kree paced and rattled the cage on their edge of the rift, explorers, driven settlers and merchants, and desperate exiles from the still forming Julian Protectorate and from ambitious Vargr explorers and exploiters would brush the coreward edge of the rift through Gur Sector, discovering the Twaro and inadvertantly traumatizing them, and eventually settling sparsely across the region, including an outpost or two in the handful of stars around Twaroy in Gur Sector.
  • Outsider outposts have come and gone in coreward Gur Sector, though cussed curiosity has usually meant that there was always someone keeping an eye on the Twaro, who have, in the last century, begun the climb of an industrial age, and are finally exploring, in halting steps, the larger universe around them.

History-Era: Milieu 1105[edit]

Gur Sector is far beyond the reach of Imperial trade, from either side of the Lesser Rift.

The Twaro are a topic of some discussion in the adjacent subsectors, but so far the scattered outposts have foreborn from helping and/or exploiting the Twaro by dragging them into space too soon. The K'kree of rimward Gur Sector are barely accessible by outsiders, protected as they are by the rift, and by many other K'kree between them and the g'naak to spinward or the ghosts to trailing.
