Current State of Affairs
TIME PERIOD: PRESENT DAY
The stalemate between the Empire and Dornea has continued over the past several months. Vorpain, although keeping a watchful eye on the Dorneans, has shifted his focus to the rise of criminal activity within the sector. An Imperial Academy has now been established within the sector on Indibedi, and the aging Republic Clones having been all but removed from service, Vorpain has been provided with the resources to build his forces of recruits gathered from loyal citizens within the Dominus Sector. His focus, he hopes, will be to deal with the criminal elements such as crime gangs and smugglers, who have seemingly been allowed to multiply in recent years, in order to bring order to the sector.
Although the Empire has increased its stranglehold on the sector, since Vorpain has taken control, the Dominus Sector is still seen by many as a place where crime is a plenty, and lucrative trade has meant that would-be merchants and smugglers can make it rich quick, providing, of course, that they are willing to take some risks.
The Hutts, who’s controlled space is a mere several parsecs away, are close enough to send one of their own, a female of their species named Treska to claim lordship over much of the lucrative spice trade. Her only opposition is a Nalroni Crimelord named Eslon Varameet who is believed to have strong connections to Dark Sun. Between the two, along with several corporate interests, the black market flourishes. As the Empire expands its influence, and grips tighter on the throat of the Dorneans, the darker side of the trade-game can only be expected to get even more attractive to would be entrepreneurs.
With the control the Empire has chosen to display, it is not unusual to note that signs of Rebellion are everywhere. The Dorneans are the prime example, but their strength has allowed them to maintain that independence. Others within the sector have not been as lucky. These sparks of rebellion have also been a small boon for local and upcoming merchants, as supplies to these systems have become well sought after, and where there is demand, there is profit.
And so, it is here, in this small corner of space, where political upheaval, and lucrative trade is abound, and where a small band of would-be entrepreneurs have begun etching their mark within the galaxy. Only time will tell if they have bitten off more than they can chew…
