Description (Specifications)[edit]

A collection of eleven worlds seeking to secure their freedoms and culture while keeping the larger universe at bay.

Iconography varies around certain holy themes. Scriptural items, holy weapons, tomes, scrolls, AI images.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

The Moralitate is ruled by a council of seers and holy ones imbued with prophetic powers and vast knowledge from their genetic memory. Normal citizens are subject to their findings, teachings and edicts. Their word is absolute law. They anoint loyal followers to go forth and carry out their will. Their military is derived from a branch of holy warriors. These clergy are called by faith to champion the cause and destroy those who would disrupt the holy will.

Interstellar Relations[edit]

They tend to be extreme isolationists and xenophobes. Rumors persist of an unholy caste of excommunicated, disavowed ones, left bereft of the illumination of faith. The unholy maybe involved in covert smuggling and importing trade items. How this would be possible under the watchful gaze of the cleric overseers is a mystery.

Internal Politics[edit]

Each world has a strong core of faithful who move from satrap to satrap, ensuring the purity and loyalty of the citizens. They collect the tithe, to ensure the offertory can afford to manufacture ships and field armies of faithful, holy warriors.

Government Structure[edit]

Government types vary from world to world.

1. Executive Branch[edit]

Elder clerics and holy ones are called into positions of power. Their personal charisma, and how they hold others in sway often influences others to witness to the miracle of their illuminated status. Miracles occur and random citizens occasionally rise from the masses, as stand outs of superior faith and enlightenment. As more scribes and followers receive their teachings they can eventually attract the attention of the high councils of holy elders, for evaluation and assessment. Those who pass the trials of faith are permitted to join and continue their holy work.

2. Legislative Branch[edit]

Enclaves and monasteries of loyal monks and scribes networked into huge AI complexes manage all legal data and contracts, scriptures and teachings of the Tenjada. These are constantly updated and patched every-time vessels travel from one system to the next. Holy nexus nodes compare revision series and data burst/overwrite to the latest commandment formats, holy scripture passages are how IFF transponders within the Tenjada Moralitate function. If your vessel is hailed with the good news and your computer doesn't know the correct piece of scripture with which to reply, you are marked as apostate, awaiting clerical review.

3. Judicial Branch[edit]

Those who fall from grace are chastised harshly, those found apostate, are subject to death. They are to report to the holy city, on Tenjada, bearing the burden of their guilt, confess and offer themselves for forgiveness through corporeal reclamation below the altar of the high lords. Some, inexplicably refuse the call to atone and forfeit their glory in the afterlife. These poor dark souls are unholy and doomed. They bear the marks of damnation and are outcasts.

Technology & Trade (Economy)[edit]

Planets in the Tenjada Moralitate range from TL–5 to TL–12.

Interstellar Commerce[edit]

The following businesses operate out of or in this polity:

  • Royal charters are granted to viceroys who control fleets that defend each planet. The planets are officially limited to trade with only other members of the Tenjada Moralitate. The ten holy books of scripture, or jada in the holy tongue have extensive rules for the disposition of possessions, family members, livestock, land, and crafts. All interplanetary trade is closely monitored by anointed members of the faithful. It is uncertain where the unholy vessels operate and how they avoid the vision of the holy seers. A few "civilian" classes of merchant vessels are common within the borders of the Moralitate.
  • 10 x 10,000 dton Refugee Pilgrim class Transport TL–12, they move between the eleven worlds collecting cargo, passengers, and offertory tithes. Ten security priest specialists ensure the preservation of orthordox scripture, and adherence to moral codes of conduct.

Research & Technology[edit]

The distribution of technology is not uniform within this territory, some worlds lag behind others. The church bestows the miracles of technology of those most worthy and in need of it.

Military & Intelligence (Force Projection)[edit]

The capital of the Tenjada Moralitate is Tangal (Mavuzog Sector 2904 A4629BD-C).

Ground Forces[edit]

Each of the five other member worlds, not listed below has a battalion of marines assigned as a garrison of their respective starport. Battalions rotate and serve four years on station before being rotated home. They are expected to bring their families. Any member world can be called upon to provide these forces. This ensures that the quality and equipment level of the garrison forces can vary substantially from deployment to deployment. The majority are TL–C forces, but that is not always the case. Lospari Marines insist that their superior faith and conviction, and their willingness to be martyred for the cause, cancels out any technological advantages their brother marines may possess.

  • Tenjada Army 12,000 Battalions, 23 field armies, each with 5 corps, of 5 divisions, of 4 regiments. (several elite/special forces formations are drawn from these troops, detailed below);
  • Pukushik Army 1,200 Battalions, in 12 corps, of 5 divisions, of 4 regiments; Pukushik Marines 120 Battalions, in 6 divisions TL–C
  • Durgak Army 3 Battalions TL–6

Naval Forces[edit]

The holy navy is divided into three BatRons, these three battle squadrons are self contained and can operate independently. Each squadron is based on their own Naval Base, which attends to their logistical and command and control needs. From here patrols constantly sweep the area and each world is visited in turn to collect offerings and ensure security is upheld. Each world has a token system defense squadron to protect the starport. The size and sophistication of these system defense units can vary considerably. The Tenjada Naval Forces (TNF) three squadrons are referred to locally as fleets. Each has an Elder Holy One serving as fleet admiral, commanding their forces as the faith guides them. The boatyards on Holdemar are poorly staffed, they are limited to overhauls and maintenance of fleet elements. The shipyards of Tenjada and Pukushik manufacture all the warships and transports for the Tenjada Moralitate.

Several vessels use the 55 dton Sacred class Utility Boats, TL–12

Special Forces[edit]

These forces are all drawn from specially trained and equipped elite portions of the Tenjada Forces, TL–C.
