Description (Specifications)[edit]

Old Expanses Sector once existed at the edge of Ziru Sirka expansion before the Interstellar Wars redefined the local landscape. The two most obvious cultural influences came from the Terrans and the Vilani, but the Droyne very clearly have left their mark in the area as well. Oynprith slang words exist in both the local Anglic and Vilani (language). Some cultural biologists also suspect a strong Hiver influence.
