Fora is, for lack of a better description, a known pirate system in UEE space – the only of its kind. Home to Hyperion, a dusty outpost planet, Fora has evolved into a safe zone in an area of space littered with Outsiders and Banu. Pirates, smugglers and worse frequently call the place their home and are largely ignored by the local police garrison.

Other than Hyperion, the system is completely dead, although the other worlds make good hiding places for larger spacecraft. Fora does have one additional point of interest: it is probably the safest area to cross into Banu space undetected. As a result, you are likely to encounter plenty of smugglers in the system’s environs… as well as the occasional UEE special operations team.[1]

Located near Banu territory, surveyors were hopeful that Fora system could become another major trade hub. Unfortunately, its only habitable planet, Hyperion (Fora III), fell victim to a terraforming mishap that created a perpetual, planet-wide dust storm. Informal censuses of the area indicate that visitors are more likely to encounter a smuggler, outlaw or Banu-settler than a UEE Citizen while in this five-planet system.
