Description (Specifications)[edit]

It was succeeded by the New Sacnoth Dominate. It is now part of the Sword Worlds.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

(-187 to -102) A former interstellar state consisting of all the Sword Worlds settled at the time. It is usually considered to be the first interstellar government in the Sword Worlds subsector, though some historians maintain that the loose hegemony Gram exercised over its colonies in the early days constituted an interstellar government of sorts.

The Dominate was established in -187 after a two-year conflict during which Sacnoth's small navy defeated Gram's small navy.

The Dominate established formal diplomatic relations with the Darrians in -164, but the Sword Worlds were afraid of cultural contamination from the much more numerous Darrians and kept to themselves as much as possible; there were no significant trade and very little interaction of any kind.

From -149 onward, survey expeditions were sent to selected worlds in the Tanoose (Vilis), Ginnungagap (Lanth), Sepireld (Lunion), Pilgrim (District 268), and Diadem (Glisten) subsectors. Colonies and outposts were established on a number of worlds, including Bowman, Caliburn, Dainslaf (Saurus), Dragvendel (Tenalphi), Eriksen (Tarsus), Hoding (Dawnworld), Igliim (Steel), Lyusing (Asgard), Skofnung (Gunn), and Tanoose (Garda-Vilis).

In -104 tensions between Sacnoth and Gram escalated into the War of the First Rebellion. As a result the Dominate broke up in -102 into the Gram Confederation, the Sacnoth Confederacy, and the Hofud Alliance.

Military & Intelligence (Force Projection)[edit]

The Sacnoth Zweigkraft (Sacnoth Armed Forces) use units like this Sacnoth Infantry Battalion for security forces. Each royal household is expected to raise and maintain units like this for the defense of the realm. Some are hired out as Huscarles.
