Grim Compact Addition

Recommended Posts

Type (e.g. Planet, Faction, System):

Wiki addition.

Short Description:

this is a small addition for the Grim Compact page. The existing Compact justifies itself using assumptions from the player that no longer exist. Namely the pervasive belief from 2014 onward that Unathi made up the bulk of space piracy. 

How will this be reflected on-station?:

Character backgrounds.

Does this addition do anything not achieved by what already exists?:

Clarifies assumptions and missing information.

Do you understand that the project may change over time in ways that you may not foresee once it is handed over to the Lore Team? 


Long Description:

This will go under Fuedalism and Society.

In The Compact

The upper castes of the Compact are drawn from the population of (usually formerly) influential guild clans. These would be the rare Clans able to leave Moghes to work alongside the alien races in the early 2430's, or the later evacuations off of [[Moghes]] during or after the [[Contact War]]. With a background of wealth and education, even for modern pirate Sinta born into this class, these Sinta tend to make up the upper echelons within the Compact and within pirate fleets in general. 

The bulk of the lower castes of the Compact come from the historical diaspora of the peasantry from the 2430's, in which hundreds of thousands of Unathi were abducted, coerced, bribed, or convinced into leaving Moghes and subsequently enslaved, indebted, or recruited by existing pirate factions. During the Contact War these pirates would frequently negotiate the price for a shuttle flight off Moghes with the locals while a mushroom cloud was actively rising over the local's former home. Even in contemporary pirate fleets, those born into these castes tend to remain there, with exceptions coming only to those with exceptional skill.
