With the withdrawl of effective control of the sector by the various
faction, several smaller local governments have coalesced from the
chaos in an effort to try to maintain even a limited order, or to
extend hegemony over other worlds in their area.
The ECCLESIASTY OF NARQUEL couples a desire to expand secular power
with a holy mission to convert others to their version of the True
Faith. It currently controls three worlds, and is looking to
increase that number, especially with worlds capable of shipbuilding
and other industrial capabilities. Narquel maintains armed forces
at TL12, although these are rarely seen outside Ecclesiasty borders,
in spite of continuing opposition to Narquel expansionism from Soyuz,
Gasudarsk, and other nearby worlds.
The UNION OF SUFREN represents the hub of Margaret's influence in
the area. The worlds of the Union have strong internal ties,
dating back to the Long Night, and have managed to maintain TL14
military capability, which is deployed only in response to
deployments by the Vassalry Judiciate. Other actions are taken
through hired mercenary groups. The Union has a strong policy of
support for the Khavle Accordment in order to maintain its trading
ties with Margaret's Domain.
The VASSALRY JUDICIATE is an expansionist polity acting in opposition
to the Union of Sufren, the Khavle Accordment, and the Alurzan Cartel.
Its origins are in the wars of succession and control resulting from
Lucan's gutting of the Moot. The Judiciate is based at Backman, which
supplies TL12 troops for operations in Sufren and Alurza subsectors.
Hervestia supplies Judiciate troops at TL7 to TL9 for operations
The KHAVLE ACCORDMENT exists solely because of its location astride
the trade route from the Union of Sufren to Margaret's Domain. It
has no central government to speak of, and military action on the
Accordment's part is in response to outside provocation, and rarely
outside the boundaries.
The ALURZAN CARTEL is a (overgrown) trade association with no
centralized government, and no facilities for starship maintenance
and repair. It is currently embroiled in internal problems, most
of which are provoked by the Vassalry Judiciate.
The UNITY OF PROMISE is interested in survival, period. Its troops,
whether native or mercenary, are never deployed outside the Unity's
boundaries. Their biggest single concern (of a host of important
concerns) is the threat from the Solomani.
The CUMBERAN CONFEDERATION renounced its membership in the Solomani
Confederation, and is therefore a target for hostile operations by
Solomani proxies. They maintain TL12 lift troops, which they have
used outside their borders in support of anti-Solomani operations.
The Cumberan Confederation has a large population of Vegan refugees,
and has exchanged ambassadors with the Aslan and Duke Craig in Daibei.
It is actively attempting to expand its external links with polities
that can be presumed to oppose Solomani expansionism, against the day
that Solomani forces move against Cumber.
The NEW ORDER VIGILANCE ALLIANCE is a Solomani puppet state set up
by Solomani Security to oppose the Cumberan Confederation. The
people of the Alliance are not enthusiastic about either the
existance of the Alliance or its domination by Solomani Security,
and as a result, the morale of the troops (equipped at TL8) is low.
The DUWAMISH LEAGUE is heavily supported by the Cumberan Confederation
in order to assure a trade route to trailing; even so, its long-term
viability is in doubt. Its biggest asset is the naval facility at
Alki, which was abandoned by Lucan's forces at the end of the Black
War phase of the Rebellion.
