Iphigenaia Sector is a frontier area and a crossroads of Aslan, Zhodani, and non-aligned human interests.

  • It is part of Charted Space.
  • In the Aslan Hierate, this sector is named Kyatulyare.
  • It has also been known as the Dark River Sector.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Iphigenaia Sector is a sparsely populated region lying towards the spinward edge of Charted Space.

  • It is characterized by a long spinward-trailing corridor of stars lying between large rift regions.
  • The resources of the sector for the most part have not been exploited.

The sector was initially surveyed during the Imperial First Survey.

  • First Survey primary data regarding the sector was very fragmented.
  • The data drew heavily on the records and accounts of previous explorers within the region.
    • Some of this data was centuries or millennia out of date.

The sector was extensively surveyed during the Imperial Second Survey.

  • The majority of the IISS personnel who conducted long-range survey missions were based out of the Spinward Marches.
  • They were able to gather valuable data at great personal risk.
    We salute their valor and honor the fallen.
  • Much of the updated data relating to the sector was based on remote long-term observations done over approximately 70 years (from 995 to 1065).
  • Most of the output from these observations was automatically collated and generated and may occasionally contain errors.

Astrographic Features & Trade Routes: 1105[edit]

The following astrographic and commercial data regarding the sector has been determined:

Summary[edit]

Stellar Distribution[edit]

A basic map showing the distribution and size of stars within Iphigenaia Sector.

  • The color corresponds to the visible color of the star, which links to its spectral classification.
  • The size as shown indicates both the physical size of the object and its relative brightness.

Note that the stars as depicted are representative. Any star, no matter what its size, is a mere speck within the hex it occupies.

  • Ordinary main sequence stars can barely be seen from even a hex away.
  • Huge, intensely luminous giant stars can be seen from across the sector and far beyond.

Rift Regions[edit]

A simple map showing rift regions within Iphigenaia Sector.

Locally at least, a rift is an astrographic concept based on Jump Drive performance.

The highest tech level commonly encountered out this Far Along (spinward of the Third Imperium) is TL–12, though a few worlds may be more advanced.

  • This level of technology allows the routine use of up to Jump-3 drives.
  • Areas that cannot be crossed by Jump-3-capable vessels are denoted as rifts.
  • Rifts present a significant obstacle to interstellar trade and commerce.

There are considered to be three major rift regions within the sector.

Clusters & Traces[edit]

There are a number of traces and clusters within the sector but most are not named.

Borealis Group[edit]

The spinward skies of Iphigenaia Sector are dominated by the Borealis Group, a very large cluster of stars containing an unusually high number of stellar giants.

Significant Stars
The brightest stars in the group are called the Borealean Stars. They include:

They are surrounded by more than sixty other giant and subgiant stars, some almost as bright as the named giants, as well as numerous main sequence stars and white dwarfs.

  • The cluster has higher than normal concentrations of gas and dust within it.
  • This gas and dust reflects the intense light of the stars and gives the vast feature a diffuse glow.

World Listing: 1105[edit]

Comprehensive Second Survey data for all worlds lying within Iphigenaia Sector is available.

  • The primary source material for all data is Traveller Map.
  • Other sources may differ: some elements of the data may be contradictory or incorrect.
  • Data is occasionally updated as new information becomes available.
  • Scouting missions gathering reliable, verified data can receive substantial payment.

AAB library archives contain expanded data about the following systems:

Demographics: 1105[edit]

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

  • Humaniti (Human Races)
    • Muirimi Solomani: 10.838 billion.
      Muirimi refers to any individual originating from the long-settled but isolated human-dominated region lying along the edge of the Great Rift in Theron and Iphigenaia Sectors. They are descended from Solomani colonists originating from the central Asian and Indian subcontinent regions of Terra.
      • The Muirimi are followers of Sitaraism.
      • Muirimi is an evolution of the Urdu word "Mujrim", meaning "guilty", or "criminal".
    • Varied origins, largely resident within the Aslan Kyatulyare Vassal: 3.209 billion.
      • At least 50% were born within the Vassal.
      • A significant percentage are not there voluntarily.
    • Zhodani: a few thousand far-flung envoys, traders, merchants, and explorers at most.

The total population of Iphigenaia Sector is estimated to be 23.098 billion Sophonts.

  • Humans make up around 68% of the total population.
  • Aslan make up a little over 31% of the total population.
  • Various non-human races make up less than 1% of the total population.

Chart Regency of Muirimi Basic 2.png
(Chart sourced from Traveller Map).

  • The Regency is a confederation of former polities and individualistic groups who don't cooperate well.

  • The leadership of the state are overly cautious and are seen as having partizan interests.
  • The population of the state does not have full confidence in its military. Local leaders may occasionally raise private armies.
  • The Regency is engaged in espionage, raiding, and strikes against the Kyatulyare Vassal of the Aslan Hierate.
