The Ka’Abrelian Imperial Sector & The Wilds
Getting to the Imperial Ka’Abrel Sector
Between Consortium space and the KI sector is a large expanse known as the Wilds. This keeps the KI sector isolated from the rest of known space, and Fleet likes it that way. Fleet has set up a secret monitoring station on the nearest system to make sure the Ka’Abrel stay where they are.
The Wilds is a no man’s land for bolters, fringers and shatrats. It is filled with viscous and desperate bolter refugees. Until the Wilds is controlled, the Ka”abrel is not seen as a threat. Fleets sees it a sa buffer zone between the Consortium and the alien imperials. (Fleet has secret plans to eventually invade and quell the threat but until the Wilds are controlled, Fleet waits).
Curch Techno Raiders – A pirate group of purely Curch, notorious for stealing all varieties of tech. They strip ship, weapons and even cyber tech.
Imperial Ka’Abrel Sector
A cluster of eleven systems, separated from the Consortium by the mysteriously dangerous Wilds, the Ka’Abrel could not have picked a better sector to settle. At least one planet in each system was habitable by terran-norm, and just as many others were prime candidates for their planet-forming techniques. As bolters came through the ‘Zone, the Ka’Abrel assigned them a world and forced them to colonize it. Some resisted, and were subsequently neutralized by the Ka’Abrel fleet.
The Ka’Abrelian fleet uses the most loyal members of each of their “slave” races, as well Faskadel officers. A single Ka’Abrel patriarch usually accompanies all fleet task forces on board the flag ship. Each system will have at least a small task force as garrison.
The Sector is located near the ‘Zone. In fact, the capital system, the Iska Mon system, is 6 light years from the edge. The other most notable part of the sector is a nebula in the middle of it called the Shatfrag Nebula by Fleet. It shows strong similarities in activity and nature as the ‘Zone but doesn’t seem to be a part of the ‘Zone. The ShatFrag Nebula is the only one of its kind, emulating the same kind of chaos but on a smaller scale. The only difference is something that Fleet thought impossible; a system exists with the ShatFrag; Shatoom Rys system.
A guide to the sector of space I created for my SZ campaign, the Ka’Abrelian Sector, a dark corner of Space that Fleet has been persuaded to leave alone. The Ka’Abrel systems are the following:
