The Judiciate is locked in mortal combat with the Union of Sufren.

  • Its worlds, long commercial rivals of the coreward Union worlds, are now military-political rivals.

Goals[edit]

The Judiciate intends to control the coreward end of the sector.

  • It is attempting this by destabilizing the Khavle Accordment, thereby cutting the Union's crucial trade with Margaret's Domain, and instigating further succession wars among the worlds of the Alurzan Cartel.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Judiciate grew out of the ducal succession wars of the mid-1120s that resulted from Lucan's gutting of the Imperial Moot. These wars included the forces of ex-Duke Geraldo of Alurza, ex-Duke Withers of Pasdaruu, pro-Lucan Duke Ilirikgaadli of Sufren (who had been banished from that planet), three new planetary dukes sent by Lucan, several megacorporations, and the civic governments of several worlds. As these wars ground on, several claimants allied themselves with planetary commercial interests to keep their claims alive. These alliances became dominated by the commercial interests, and gave birth to the Judiciate, based at Backman (Diaspora 2209), which retains the embittered, unseated nobles as figureheads.

Military & Intelligence (Force Projection)[edit]

Because Backman's TL 12 troops are used for operations in the Sufren and Alum subsectors, Hervestia is the source of troops for Judiciate operations further afield. These TL 7-9 troops can be encountered almost anywhere in the sector—the Judiciate, befitting its history, is notorious for meddling in the affairs of other worlds—and are easily recognized from their armbands sporting a yellow disk crossed by green diagonals.
