hatred, prejudice and armed conflicts short of war.
Vrudokin Empire starts
Vrudokin Empire begins
to build the Clutch, a massive mobile outpost to serve as the
administrative and political capital of their empire.
||Tired of tension and strife between
their nominal galactic governments, Hadjel and Zanya, traditional
friends, sign a comprehensive trade agreement that paves the way
for the UTP.
|San Jorge Industries forms
Empire burns out Cacanto
|Rafers - Ptatl
||Rafer exploration ships outbound from Uppoyen discover the Ptatl in the Qetlec system.
The Rafers are quick to attack. In a series of 4 quick battles, the
technologically superior and more experienced Ptatl quickly drive the Rafers
back to Coventbourne. The Ptatl occupy the system capital just long enough to
make their point, demolishing a great deal of the Rafers' infrastructure and
military capability. Then they just pack up and go home. The Rafers' are left to
||Makkuth raid Bjaki frontiers.
|Irukki - Kharkosanth -
||An expeditionary force
from the Kharkosanth Empire discovers the Irukki. A "diplomatic"
invasion force is dispatched. To the Kharko's surprise, the Irukki
quietly agree to join the Empire. The Kharkosanth provide technology
and training to the Irukki. The Kharkosanth build the Golosa orbital
forward military station in the Tenoxi system and use it to produce
more exploratory forces.
Key Generator developed
||.A joint effort by scientists in the
Core Commonwealth and Bjaki Federation results in the development of the
Wormhole Key Generator. A lab on Tengadi is able to open the first actual small
wormhole and susteain it for several minutes. Bjaki scientists on Memphix soon
tweak the equipment and calibration procedures to allow small wormholes to be
|Rafers - Kayyan Empire
||Kayyan exploratory forces out of Izwan stumble on Coventbourne.
The Rafers are quick to attack and demolish the exploration vessels. The Kayyans
respond with an invasion force. The Kayyans are tired by conflict with the
Vrudok and by their own War of Succession with Toqkwen. The Rafers are fierce,
enthusiastic, and freshly rested from years of rebuilding after their war with
the Ptatl. While the Kayyan Empire hast the technology and ability to crush the
upstart young Rafers, they are impressed by their fierceness and
resourcefulness. Kayyan Emperor Rasanya devised his "hostile alliance" scheme.
He staged a massive invasion of the Uppoyen system and was able to capture the
young colonies there with little problem. He was able to manipulate the Rafer
colonists through their love of war and distaste for confinement, convincing
them to join him in an invasion of Coventbourne. Through careful training and
indoctirnation of his new Rafer allies, Coventbourne soon willingly joined in an
alliance with the Kayyans.
||Kharkosanth exploratory forces from Tenoxi run into Makkuth. The Makkuth
attack and the Karkosanths declare war. They push into Makkuth
space and capture several planets. The Makkuth, through the
Celendriennes, enlist the aid of the Y’Hotha and Skalds to
combat the “invading menace”. The Kharkosanths are held and
agree to back off. A tenuous alliance between the Makkuth,
Y’hotha, and Skald remains to defend their common space.
The Kharkosanth lose confidence in the Irukki's ability to work
tightly as a team. They maintain ties but consider Tenoxi a friendly
independent world, similar to Stewart, as opposed to a participating
member of the Empire.
Key Generator employed
||The first successfully funcitoning
transportation wormhole is opened between Bryden and Tengadi in the Core
Commonwealth. The Kobold system launches a formal protest that they were not
chosen as the destination.
|Kayyan Empire -
||A Kayyan exploratory expedition encounters scouts
from the Core Commonwealth.
The Kayyans are wary, having dealt with
the Vrudok and the Rafers in the past. There is a brief standoff and threats are made. The two empires enter into a long period of negotiation.
