As of 1116, the Moot has been unable to decide upon a proper successor, but six seperate factions are competing for parts of the Imperium, not to mention foreign governments (primarily Aslan, Solomani, and Vargr) who are able to take advantage of the situation.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The factions are:

1. Archduke Brzk of Antares (League of Antares)[edit]

A Vargr, Brzk initially believed he could make a bid for the throne. However, he eventually realized that he would never be accepted as readily as a Human. He secured the Domain of Antares as the League of Antares and used his personal charisma to control it. The eventual peace he waited for did not come, however.

2. Archduke Norris of Deneb (Domain of Deneb)[edit]

Dulinor, who had convinced Strephon that he was one of his closest friends, was appointed Archduke of Ilelish in 1104, and action opposed by most nobility.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Dulinor Entry from Two Library Data
Ilelish Interstellar Information Interchance Imperial Data Network
Dulinor I: Born in 1066 on Dlan (Ilelish 1021), Archduke Dulinor Astrin Ilethian assumed the Iridium Throne of the Third Imperium in 1116. Dulinor Astrin Ilethian: Born in 1066 on Dlan (Ilelish 1021), Archduke Dulinor Astrin Ilethian assassinated Emperor Strephon thus reviving the Right of Assassination as a path to the throne.
Dulinor realized the Imperium would never regain its glory unless Strephon stepped down. in 1115, Dulinor asked Strephon to abdicate, but the emperor refused; the archduke realized that drastic measures were in order. Dulinor was appointed archduke to revitalize a region whose economy was faltering. While many criticized Strephon's choice, analysists agreed elevating an iconoclast promised to co-opt the man into the system.
On 132-1116, Dulinor killed Strephon Alkhalikoi in personal combat, as required by custom, and ascended the throne as Dulinor I, Emperor of the Third Imperium. On 132-1116, Dulinor struck, eliminating the Imperial heirs with three pistol shots, then fled to seed Imperium-wide rebellion. His brother, sector admiral of the Ilelish Fleet, formed the nucleus of the rebel navy.
The old regime has acted to impede Dulinor's accession to the Iridium Throne. Strephon's nephew, Lucan, has claimed the throne for himself without right. To enforce his will upon others, this pretender killed his own brother and prevented the Moot from confirming Dulinor's rightful status. The established succession procedures produced a legitimate heir, and Lucan assumed the throne. His first statement was an order to crush Dulinor. Imperial forces have been mobilized to achieve just that end.
Because of the uncertainty formented by Lucan and because his navy interferes with free trade and communications, the Imperium must be united in its drive to crush Lucan. Because of the uncertainty formented by Dulinor and because his navy interferes with free trade and communications, the Imperium must be united in its drive to crush Dulinor.
