Mora / Mora / Spinward Marches
Historic Alliance with Sword Worlds, Imperial Worlds
The Duke Regent today announced a new era in the power balance on the
Imperial Border. The Imperium has recognized the new Trilateral
Alliance government of the Sword Worlds, who succeed Gram as the seat
of power in the Confederation. He has ratified an agreement
negotiated by Admiral Count Santanocheev which forges an alliance
between the Sword Worlds and the Imperium.
This is a historic shift in the power balance in the Spinward
Marches, assuring the Imperium's safety from the Zhodani Threat.
The Zhodani now stand alone on the Spinward-Coreward border, with the
Darrian Federation and now the Sword Worlds Confederation both allied
with the Imperium. To a certain extent this balances the Imperial
Navy fleet movements during the Santanocheev Rebellion, assuring the
security of the Spinward Marches in these troubled times.
While this will no doubt raise tensions with the Zhodani Consulate, the
Duke Regent is sure that any issues can be resolved peacefully.
As part of the agreement, certain Imperial worlds that have long held
strong ties with the Sword Worlds will become officially part of that
Confederation. These are:
The transfer of power in these worlds will be overseen by the Dukes of
Adabicci and Five Sisters. These worlds are to be considered
temporary Amber Zones during the transition.
- Arba / Lunion (1721 Spinward Marches; C200200-C)
- Rabwhar / Lunion (1822 Spinward Marches; D5448BA-6)
- Margesi / Vilis (1020 Spinward Marches; C575677-6)
- Caladbolg / Sword Worlds (1329 Spinward Marches; B365776-A)
- Gunn / Sword Worlds (1429 Spinward Marches; E344110-8)
- Caliburn / Sword Worlds (1430 Spinward Marches; E000514-A)
By agreement with the Trilateral Alliance, the Imperial Interstellar
Scout Service will retain the Scout Base on Caladbolg as Imperial
Property, with appropriate border controls to other parts of
Caladbolg. The Xboat route will continue through this system, as
it does currently through Biter (1526 Spinward Marches; B354623-A) in
the Sword Worlds.
Noble titles associated with the ceded worlds will be retained, with
these nobles also taking up new equivalent or higher titles in Five
