From the introduction: The Karrakin Trade Barons is an oligarchic, polytemporal dynastic Federation with a long history
of war and trade. Now the single largest supplier for Union’s raw material appetite, the Baronies
are known for their expertise in mining and resource extraction, terrestrial, orbital, jovian, and
The Baronies are a rarity among galactic states: founded pre-fall, their society and culture has --
much like the Aun -- charted an unbroken history from foundation to the present day. However,
where the Aun regard Cradle as their long lost homeworld, people in the Baronies generally do
not hold Cradle in that same regard. Instead, Karrakis, the Baronies’ first world, occupies that
venerated position in their cultural mythology; Cradle is simply recognized as their species origin
point, and not a homeland to be reclaimed, longed for, or even visited.
