History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Prior to the Fifth Frontier War Tureded was viewed as having increasing importance as a trade and shipping center because of its location at a junction for jump-1 travel from rimward to the Regina, Jewell, and Rhylanor subsectors. Tureded was widely expected to be upgraded to a class B Starport and the Scout Service was negotiating the establishment of a Scout Base, with the apparent intention of an X-Boat link from Rhylanor (Spinward Marches 2716) to Dinomn (Spinward Marches 1912) and Regina (Spinward Marches 1705). However, the independent nature of the locals, who were not keen on an influx of offworlders, delayed expansion of the starport and negotiations over the base, and as the Fifth Frontier War broke out negotiations were broken off.

On 251-1107 Turededian authorities announced the discovery and arrest of a number of "sleeper" agents in high places in their planetary government. The agents were citizens of the Sword Worlds Confederation, disguised as locals, who had spent years working their way unobtrusively into the highest councils of the planetary government. The agents were to break the vital jump-1 route to Regina and the war zone by turning Tureded against the Imperium and destroying or impounding supply vessels on their way to the front.

Between 180- and 200-1109, the Zhodani 40th Fleet captured Tureded as part of a wider Abyss Campaign. On 200-1109 the 40th Fleet was forced to halt an important offensive push after discovering that their secret base at Fulacin (Spinward Marches 2613) had been compromised. Faced with a choice between taking a destroyed base and establishing a new one, the 40th Fleet retreated back to Tureded and established their base there. From the Tureded base, the 40th Fleet jumped off to attack and invade both Porozlo (Spinward Marches 2715) and Rhylanor.

The inhabitants of Tureded are ornery believers in self-determination, self-defense, and personal armament. While the world was occupied during the Fifth Frontier War, the locals mounted an intensive guerrilla campaign combined with sabotage in the starport facilities that effectively denied the port to the Zhodani.
