Far and Away
The Third Imperium
The Third Imperium: The great Empire’s expansion has
ground to a halt. It controls parts of four subsectors, protected
by the ‘rampart worlds’ of Pax Rulin and Tobia. While the
Imperium shows little interest in extending its borders – the
cost of protecting more worlds against the Hierate is prohibitive
– there are several potential ‘client states’ that the Imperium is
cultivating as a buffer against the Hierate.
The Imperium is a lazy giant until provoked. The Imperium’s
interest lies elsewhere right now, but if the Aslan advance or a
pirate lords makes too much of a nuisance, the Imperial Navy
will be dispatched to enforce the will of the Iridium Throne.
