Forge Fathers

Faction Focus


The sturdy folk of the Star Realm, a collection of systems coreward of the GCPS, are known in Galactic Standard as Forge Fathers – a rather prosaic translation of their native tongue, though not one to which they seem to object.

Short in stature and powerfully built, the people of the Star Realm are best known for their technological aptitude, which far surpasses that of the finest human engineers and is the rival of any other race thus far encountered. Split into various clans located throughout the Star Realm, the Forge Fathers are generally peaceable, preferring trade to war. Indeed, it is from their workshops that many of the finest weapons, armour and other tech used by the GCPS is obtained.

Though massively advanced by human standards, it is clear that the equipment they sell to the Council is far short of their true capabilities, and nowhere is this more clearly exhibited than when Corporation Forces clash with Forge Fathers in a Deadzone. The Brokkrs who lead these excursions hail from a distinct caste of Forge Father society, wandering engineers and prospectors who seldom have official links to the Star Realm when about their business (or at least any that can be proven).

Backed by sturdy Forge Guard and using modified mining lasers and even the occasional Iron Ancestor, these expeditions arrive in Deadzones ready to plunder whatever resources might be at hand. The Forge Fathers have little interest in territory, but exploiting the resources of planets is what they do best, and the disappearance of a planet from the official record affords them a convenient opportunity – after all, the GCPS can hardly declare war against the Star Realm over an incursion to a planet that they deny exists.
