Traveller: Foreven Worlds: More Info on Other Worlds

Foreven Worlds: Fessor SubsectorAfter a highly successful first day of Foreven Worlds: Fessor Subsector, we received 2 reviews. The first is a glowing 5 star review (thank you). The second is a 3 star review. The review’s author gave two reasons for dropping it two stars: 1) the map isn’t color and 2) the other planets of the sector do not have much, if any, detail. And well … he’s right. I should have done both. So I will be updating Fessor Subsector with a color map. It might take me a bit, but it will happen.

As for his second point, I’ll be sure to do that in the release for all other other subsectors, but I’m just going to post them here on my website for Fessor for all to have. I’ll post a few every few days. Please forgive that these will be unedited (my editors hate it when I do this). So here goes.

Dralib was the first world conquered by the Cornathian Empire. Their ships arrived in IY 971. The few hundred farmers working the communal farms knew they did not stand a chance against this force and surrendered without a shot being fired. More than two hundred years later, the descendants of the original colonists, known on world as Drians, are vastly outnumbered by those that moved here after the conquest. The IPF, Imperial Peacekeeper Force, routinely arrest Drians, claiming they were thinking of starting trouble and point to planted objects as evidence of such intent. The Drians have tried appealing to the planet’s ruler for relief from such persecution. While Governor Frinsk claims to be sympathetic to their cause, no change in the IPF’s actions are yet apparent.

Despite being a frequented trading stop between Alespron and Reidian subsectors, the people of Magnef live in perpetual poverty. The wage laws allow corporations to pay their employees so little, the people live in near-squalor conditions. Even when corporations do break such flimsy laws, there is little recourse for the several million people that live on this world. The only time the planet’s nobility go after such corporations is when they cause serious environmental damage. Recently, several hundred tons of radioactive waste material were discovered on a remote moon of the system’s only gas giant world. The only reason it was discovered was that the noblewoman that owned that world, Lady Bedia, decided to set up a pleasure dome on that moon and was unable to do so because of the unexpectedly high radiation levels. She used her influence to get the planet’s police to find the responsible party. The investigator placed the blame squarely on the crew of the Iadria Zhdev, a ship owned by Iadria Vlovl. Since the corporation received word of such an accusation, the company has ordered the crew to a different section of space. Lady Bedia is now searching for some mercenaries to bring the Iadria Zhdev and her crew to justice.

Traveller: Foreven Worlds: SORAG

Foreven Worlds: Fessor SubsectorWith Foreven Worlds: Fessor Subsector coming out soon, I thought I should share with you some of the forces in the sector that players could possibly face. Lets start with the enemy to much of the sector: SORAG. SORAG is a branch of the Zhodani military and stands for Study and Operations Recording Activities Group; its official mission is to observe the progress of emerging interstellar planets. Unofficially, its job is to make unaligned planets right for a Zhodani conquest, without having it look like a conquest. They destabilize governments, if not bring them down altogether. This way the Zhodani Navy comes in and helps to stabilize the situation. Then they never leave.

Even though the paranoid in the sector see SORAG agents everywhere, that does not mean that SORAG isn’t watching. Their active infiltration and assassination missions may not be everywhere, their surveillance and analysis agents are on just about every world in the sector. They observe activities on a world, determine if the world has sufficient value to take over, and look for destabilizing weak points in the planet’s society. Once sufficient weak points are determined, infiltration agents come in and press those weak points causing a crisis. Once the economy or the government collapses, the Zhodani Consulate typically offers to help stabilize the situation. SORAG agents will have collected enough dirty deeds on the leaders to blackmail them into agreeing to the stabilizing force. Should the leaders refuse or if SORAG agents cannot find enough to blackmail a leader, the Consulate will typically send their military, making some excuse to say why it is necessary.

With so few worlds in the Foreven Sector apart of a large interstellar network, the region is ideal for SORAG agents to ply their trade. Imperial intelligence agencies have been slow to recognize this threat and are only starting to catch up. Deployed Imperial agents have been sent to determine the level of SORAG activity on individual Imperial-friendly worlds and recommend countermeasures.

Foreven Worlds: Fessor Subsector is the first in Jon Brazer Enterprises‘ releases detailing the Foreven Sector. Subscribe to our newsletter to never miss an update and to get exclusive previews and deals.

The CT supplement SORAG was originally created by Chuck Kallenbach II and published by Paranoia Press. I really enjoyed the book when I first read it and still enjoy it. I just want to thank Mr. Kallenbach and Paranoia Press for this book.
