History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Battle of Kilii Ar in 239 fought between Vargr and Imperial forces on the planet using WMD devastated the world for 200 years


The Naval Base was taken over by the Dzarrgh Federate in 1117 and became the main forward base for Dzarrgh Federate raids into Atsah Subsector. This died down with a cease-fire being agreed including the "Demilitarisation" of parts of Atsah Subsector - but pressures from Trailing and the fall of the Irrgh Manifest gave the Dzarrgh Federate little option but to try and flee into Regency Territory. This failed and so the fleets tried to fight off the inevitable in an heroic last stand - but this too ultimately failed.

Post Virus[edit]

Overrun by an Empire Builder/Puppeteer Virus is late-1138/early-1139 with Vargr troops from Trailing Kiran became the forward base for the (failed) strike at Corfinium/Atsah in late-1139/1140. Ships "Fleeing" the disasters at Kiran and Corfinium became the start of the flood that struck into the Regency for the next 6 decades.

Local Nobility[edit]

Kiran, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.


The Nobility of Kiran fled the world in the face of the arriving Vargr horde. Those members of the families that stayed became leaders of the low-level insurgency but the repeated Vargr counter-insurgency sweeps and later waves of Virus destroyed all trace of them on the world. Those that fled into the Regency became just another set of poverty-stricken but proud refugees that found useful roles in the new society or sank into the general masses.
