Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Mapepire Cluster (pronounced "mah-pay-pee-ray") is a loose coalition of worlds grouped more as a tourist delight than as a political faction.

The Cluster receives its name from the fact that each of its worlds are accessible to vessels with only jump-1 capability and the snake-like commercial route which connects them. The cluster is considered de rigueur for Beyond's wealthier citizens.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Duchy of Mapepire has always been the poorer neighbor of the Duchy of Trelyn. It generally does not have the tech level of its richer neighbor. It is called a "country province" because its many agricultural worlds have cleaner atmospheres. In addition, the re-Torlus family, that has ruled the Duchy for over 100 years, are conservative and not overly ambitious.

In general this is a good place to travel or trade. Most of the worlds have breathable atmospheres. Officials do not take themselves too seriously and bribes can accomplish a great deal.

Ground Forces[edit]

They use a TL–12 Cluster Combat Task Force, similar in size to a regiment.

Naval Forces[edit]

The Mapepire Cluster has a total of five Battle Squadrons assigned individually to five separate Naval Bases. The majority of the ships of the line are TL–12 designs build at Hunyadi / The Beyond Sector (0103 A687799-C) and a number of asteroid vessels build at Mapepire Balsayn / The Beyond Sector (0602 A000689-C).
