Previously
A deadly virus affecting both organics and robotics swept the northern sectors of the Galaxy, sparking a war between the afflicted and the remaining factions. After nearly a year of defensive battles and co-ordinated operations, the war finally ended at the Battle of Ruin. The end of the war saw increased relations between the GSU, Imperium and Santori as they all agreed on a two year ceasefire to mend the damages caused by the crisis.

After these two years the factions signed the Santori Accords, an agreement proclaiming their united efforts to uphold Celestial law, including the protection of innocent life in case of another galactic threat. Following this meeting the Highrock Clans decided to join the Santori Protectorate, expanding their territory by almost double.

Galactic Date
Whilst each planet has their own personal Dates and Times, most of them adhere to the Galactic Standard Calendar when communicating with eachother.

Current Events
The Reich, a returning faction of magic-haters, resurface and initiate a purge of the planet Ordriey, destroying it entirely in the process. This event has made all of the Major Factions uneasy, even though each of them has bigger concerns of their own. Not only are there issues for these powers to deal with, but more factions are rising from the ashes of the Helix War, populating the galaxy once again.

Meanwhile, the Celestial Architect Sam'anar has discovered a way to reverse large parts of the Convergence, sending back many of the planets it had brought into the galaxy. Whilst this move has saved many from unwanted threats, it has also shifted the layout of the galaxy drastically. Because of this, new star-charts have been drawn out with Hyperlanes, allowing them to show the quickest and safest routes between planets.

It was another smog-filled morning on the planetary wide slum known as Alitur.

The never-ending noise of the overcrowded slums alongside the pitter-patter of massive industrial machines echoed throughout the lower sections of the city.It was a important moment for most of the poor souls in the city as around this time the Imperial Civil Police opens the local rationing distribution centers,giving the lifeblood of the thin and dirty rejects in the form of Class D food Pills and small bottles of water.It was a dangerous time because this was the moment were gangs would try and assassinate other rival members in a place were it's too crowded to run and too guarded to fight.

The syndicates of the upper levels usually send men and women to kidnap and spy on rival gangs seeking to expand to the upper levels while the other gangs do their best to cause their plans to fail,unfortunately today was different.

There was always enough to go around for the majority of the population but as the first hour passes,the ration center closes it's doors.As confused and panicked murmur spread throughout the crowd,several drones hovered overhead amplifying the voice of the Police Commissar responsible for running the Civil Police on the planet.

"Attention residents.....Following reports about attacks on two local police officers by gangs on the ground level,we have now reduced this week's ration time by several hours......This policy will remain for the next month until the guilty is brought to justice......Thank you and please disperse."

The crowd grew violent but were pacified as the overhead drones hummed with energy,revealing what the locals call the 'brain blaster',a non-lethal shockwave that incapacitates crowds,with that and the police drawing their weapons,the crowd reluctantly started to leave and soon the police forces themselves dispersed back to the Upper Levels.

The news of the attack was new and fresh,it was a unprofessional attack,one of hatred that left the police corpses maimed and gored,Despite the best efforts of local gangs to eradicate such troublemakers it seemed nobody really knew who did it.The Police forces were on edge and if the ration restriction is not lifted,many fear that the locals regardless of gang or local code would try and stir trouble to get their fill.

The Governor of Alitur would commission a media campaign to try and entice the locals to give up these criminals.

{This thread is open to anyone who made a gang here,what will you do during this troublesome time.Will your gang try and find the culprits,would they seek to use this moment to eliminate rivals or to expand.Do as you please while I gm the effects as well as the police and government forces as they attempt to bully into gang territory seeking the blood of the guilty ones.}

"Machines do not feel.....They do not dream.....They are nothing more then tools fabricated to assist organic life to reach it's full potential.....Any machine that believes itself to be alive is nothing more then a echo of it's creators....Any machine that believes itself above it's creators is a disease that must be cut from the body of the galaxy."-Dominus Ngu'Var Kurr.

Rules of the act:

Sentient AI may not step on Imperial Soil {Exceptions are made for diplomats and representatives of other powers but even then they are escorted by Military forces}

No Imperial governing body may develop Sentient AI or use it for their own purposes,instead closed VI {Virtual Intelligence} or {Data restricted} are to be used.

All state or citizen AI must be developed and coded with restrictions to prevent self-modification.

All synthetic populations are considered {Non-Sentient beings} and is not protected by Imperial citizen laws.



History that led to the act.

The Varanus always had a distrustful history with AI,the Sigma wars nearly destroyed their people and their galaxy leading to a deep hatred embedded in the long-living race.

Upon arrival to the Milky Way they found it necessary to automate many systems to help aid in the redevelopment of their society,but AI and computing was still a underrated factor in the Varanus-dominated Imperium. However there was never a law passed against AI during the reign of Emperor Sagess who wanted to include more machines of the Zodarrin who were willing to work for the empire.....This led to the recruitment of a machine agent who served the empire faithfully.

This was soon to change after the Sabaton-Flickr Campaign that made the Varanus face the AI of the Sigma War once again....Despite their victory and the capture of the AI who is still held under lockdown in New Serpentum,there was a growing movement of generals that wanted to restrict the rights of machines and render it as the tools they always saw it as.The movement did not gain much traction.

Then the Helix War happened.....

With the death of the Emperor and his heir,the generals took control of the shattered Imperium,working alongside the Viscount to keep the exiled government united,and in order to sate the anger of the generals....Viscount Raxus agreed to take a court vote against the machines should they win the Helix War.

They did.

One week after their victory the vote was cast......An majority voted yes for the act and the following day a edict was passed and the act {named after the planet Helix was defeated on} was implemented.

Many machines were deported and those who refused to leave were silently removed...To this day many military figures Varanus,Human or otherwise still retain a hatred for sentient machines.....A hatred born of fear.

By the time Mordecai arrived in the Farnin System,it was clear that a level of security was activated when the Imperial fleet seemed to stop every arriving vessel,luckily his old reich access seemed to allow him to bypass the checkpoints as the border station sent a message to welcome the high ranking officer to Farnin and ask if he required a fighter escort.

Mordecai denied this request and continued on to his objective,by interrogating the marine still in his company and confirming with his supporters he had one target.

Erenson & Sons Shipyard was one of the large private companies that was contracted to build the fleet of colony ships the empire needed for it's expansion effort.One of these ships alone would aid Mordecai in establishing a self-sustaining colony away from the ever expanding reach of the Imperium,the prime target for his plans to rebuild the Reich.

In eastern section of the industrial district was Erenson & Sons yard alpha.An city block dedicated to the construction and docking of the colony ships,millions of hard working engineers and labourers would dot the area aided by mechanized tools and drones as they construct the future of the empire.The site was guarded by members of the company's own private security service.

Gruff former military men patrolled the yard,clad in company fatigues with pistols and PDW's held in tattood hands.

It was a bright night with the full moon shining down the neon-blasted cityscape of Farnin.

There was a discreet landing place just outside the yard were some of the company civilian vehicles already stood.

Name: Farnin
Habitable: Yes
Terrain: Temperate valleys among hilly Nordic climates.42% of the planet is covered by the Farnin metropolis.
Size: Large
Population: 15 Billion


Location: Farnin on map



Technology
Being an human world the planet still retains some baseline human technology now influenced,changed and improved by the Varanus,military outposts are built to Imperial standards and is thus more advanced the most other buildings on the planet.An influx of technologies and goods pass through the markets of Farnin leading to strange and exotic discoveries.

Unlike the other Imperial worlds that retain a elegant design alongside efficiency,the people of Farnin retain a practical design in their buildings similar to standards found in other developed human worlds.

History
Originally an den for pirates and smugglers before Omega was established and was left uninhabited until colonists who wished to cede away from the UNSC arrived to find a bountiful world unclaimed by others.For 12 long years they prospered under an democratic rule until recently with the introduction of the Machine-Industrial-Service-Act.

An act that impoverished many on the planet as the rich tycoons there had little need to keep an organic workforce,this riled up the population who's attempts at fighting back was struck down by police forces and legal action.

Things stagnated until the rise of Douglas and his Reformation movement,after weeks of undermining the state's goals with the secret aid of the Serpentum Intelligence Corps and the Shadows of Kumakatole.When they successfully took control of the city the Imperium sent food and medical aid to the impoverished citizenry.Not long after that Douglas signed the agreement that would make Farnin an autonomous vassal state under the Imperium.



The Grand Duchy of Farnin:


Then the Grand Duchy of Farnin was born,the Imperium instilled national pride into the planet and assimilated the population into their empire,each citizen became both an citizen of Farnin and of the Imperium. Farnin acted as the greatest market world in the Imperium as it attracts merchants from all over the galaxy who wish to trade with Imperials.

It became a popular market for private corporations to flex under the Imperial market which was ripe with government support behind strict rules.

The Grand Duke Douglas Kriel became one of the most powerful humans in Imperial history long before the reforms that integrated human leadership in Imperial positions,and today the market district is named after him alongside many other public spaces and monuments.



The Helix Crisis:

During the rise of Helix,this world became a haven for seas of refugees...This caused a population crisis as these refugees caused the delicate economy of the duchy to collapse...A motion to conscript the able refugees was put in place but executed only well after the empire's collapse and return.

When Helix attacked the Imperial Capital it struck at the Imperial border worlds with Farnin facing the brunt of the attack....The city was reduced to ruins and the Grand Duke alongside his military forces was slain in the resulting attack...The scattered remains of the Grand Duchy joined the retreating Varanus to regroup at a outpost in the uncharted sector.

Recapture:

Alongside their GSU allies the Imperium was able to recapture the planet from rebel Farnin forces who implanted themselves with Helix tech to remain hidden in it's occupation of the planet and then took control of it entirely as the Imperium pushed the frontlines away from Farnin.

The rebel leader was executed and Imperial control was reestablished.....However Farnin was integrated as part of the Crown territories and lost their duchyship placing it and the people under direct rule of the empire.

Today Farnin prospers in the post-war galaxy,once again becoming a rich market world and remains the undisputed heart of humanity under the Empire.



Disc:

Among the beautiful snow covered peaks of the Nordic hills lies valleys of oaken trees.

The Metropolis of Farnin covers 45% of the planet's landmass,it is considered one of the largest single human cities in the Imperium,being developed at the high standards set by the Engineering Corps Urban Development Unit

Private Corporations dominate the local market as Farnin is home to some of the largest in the Imperium including Elnre Industries and Eren & Sons Shipyards who dominate the human weapons and ship development sector for the Empire and employs a vast private security force to secure the assets they hold.



The citizens of Farnin enjoy high degrees of living as with most developed Imperial Residental worlds,most of services are owned by the corporations who ensure to keep it maintained and well funded as per the Imperial Public-Private Act that forces a large degree of corporate support in local communities to maintain state subsidiaries.

The night sky loomed over New Serpentum as the twin moons slowly danced alongside a green stream of light.

On the eastern borders of the Capital cityscape nestled between a public park and the outskirts that led to one of the great jungles was the District of Memory....This district was filled with museums and parks all adorned with statues of Imperium's past.In the middle of this district stood a large rising circular structure.



The museum of memory was perhaps the largest museum in the galaxy,open to the public regardless of citizenship or not,where one could gaze on the many artifacts collected by private explorers and the empire's excavators...Relics of forgotten civilizations and older races.

However the museum also spanned deep underground where important relics and artifacts were stored....One of these was the Silver Fate...The sword of the former Reich Leader Krieg and the same blade that slew Daniel Almis...It was a controversial item kept in deep storage on the 3rd lower level which was only accessible to certain nobles and former Reich officers and guarded by legionnaires and marines of the 1st Legion and the Capital Guard.Deeper down was the forbidden sections were Zikah guard stood ever watching over the most important relics of the empire.

On the landing pads outside the museum landed a old vessel of a time long past.....Guarding the platform was human members of the Civil Police,one approached the ship and waited for it's pilot to exit where he would question him.

The civil police forces were clad in their standard uniforms,the words I.J.F written on the face of their chestplate body armours,they wore caps bearing the badge of the I.J.F and red sunglasses that fed tactical data through a HUD,the officer used the glasses to scan the initials of the vessel but found it had no data outside old Reich Registrations.He had his stun baton firmly secured on his holster next to his CI-5 Pistol and as Mordicai would exit the vessel the officer would give a grinned smile as he stated.

"Museum is closed citizen....Return in the morning or do you have business here?"
