Things to Know

This is what your characters know. It may function as sort of a glossary.

Planets


Chau Sara - Mostly made up of jungle and plains, Chau Sara is the home of Alpha Squadron, the Confederacy's finest. A small planet, the only major city is Los Andares. Recently the planet has seen an increase in Confederate activity followed by an increase in rebel activity (Sons & local). Currently governed by Colonial Magistrate Collins. Chau Sara is most known for it's university (set up for Alpha Squadron, it is 80/20 military students) and for a unique tree, Sunwood.

Chau Sara was purified by foreign ships on December 4, 2499.
 


Mar Sara - A wasteland of mountains and desert, Mar Sara is the sister planet of Chau Sara. Much more populated than it's smaller counterpart, the planet is known to be the eighth Confederate core colony world. It is a mining planet with two moons. There is a saying that the only two types of people found on Mar Sara are soldiers and miners. The Confederates recently appointed a new magistrate in hopes of settling the rebellious citizens.
 


Antiga Prime - This planet is primarily badlands. In what is known as the Andasar Uprising, Andasar City was entirely slaughtered by the confederates after the residents revolted and took the local Magistrate hostage.
 


Braxis - Braxis is an iceworld.
 


Tarsonis - Capital world of the Confederacy consisting of badlands and jungle. Tarsonis is the site of the crash landing of Nagglfar (the original supercarrier which held the prisoners from Earth). An ion canon was built to defend the planet.
 


Korhal - Korhal was a hotbed of anti-Confederate sentiment for years. The Confederacy hoped to contain Korhal's civil unrest by decimating it and its population with a massive nuclear barrage. Though the radiation levels on the planet are at an all time low, its surface is now nothing more than a smoldering desert.
 


Earth - Often called "Old Earth", this is the original world of the human race. It is ruled by the United Powers League.
 

Terran Factions/Allegiances


The Confederacy of Man - Also known as the Terran Confederacy, these Terrans are based on Tarsonis. The Confederates are ruled by The Old Families (the descendants of the captains of Nagglfar). The Confederates defeated Moria in a 4 year war (The Guild Wars). Moria was annexed into the Confederacy, but they provide so much wealth that they are nearly immune to Confederate laws. The Confederates abuse their colonists, causing many rebel groups to rise up, but they are rarely successful. Their military is vast and contains 6 squadrons and 1 recon squadron.
 


Sons of Korhal - Branded terrorists by the Confederacy, this rebel group was formed by Arcturus Mengsk after the destruction of their home planet, Korhal. They are the only successful anti-confederate movement, perhaps due to their alliance with the Umojan Protectorate. The Sons are based on the battlecruiser, the Hyperion. Mengsk and the Sons were victorious in their attack of a Tarsonis ghost academy, bringing them much needed support. Most recently, large amounts of Sons of Korhal rebels have been seen on Chau Sara. Their color is red.

Umojan Protectorate - The Umojan Protectorate is a neutral protectorate whose base of operations is on Umoja. Its commander is Minister Jorgensen and it is also led by the Umojan Ruling Council. This group is the only ruling council not under Confederate control. They do however, have their own ghost program. Their militia color is cyan.

United Powers League - The Earth government succeeding the United Nations. They police-state controlled the majority of Earth. Enforcing conformity, the UPL banned all languages but English as well as all religion. The UPL is responsible for sending away the "scum" of the Earth into deep space on Nagglfar and for a mass genocide called Project Purification.

Important People


General Arcturus Mengsk - A Terran from Korhal, he is the leader of the anti-Confederate group, the Sons of Korhal. Arcturus fought in the Confederate Marine Corps (CMC) during the guild wars and achieved the rank of Colonel. Mengsk abandoned the Confederacy and started up as a prospector. In Umoja, Arcturus learned he had a son and also that his father was assassinated back on Korhal by the Confederates. The Umojan Ruling Council named Arcturus the new leader of the Rebellion of Korhal. Mengsk amassed a huge army on Korhal and acquired a Confederate battlecruiser that he renamed the Hyperion. Shortly after, the Confederacy nuked clean the surface of Korhal, killing millions. Arcturus Mengsk and his marines escaped, but are now the most wanted criminals in the entire sector.

Lieutenant Sarah Kerrigan - The favored officer of Mengsk, Sarah started out her career as a ghost. Kerrigan is a psychic, having scored very high on her psi-evaluations. She was rescued from Confederate control by Arcturus, who had her neural inhibitor removed. She obtained her hostile environment suit by killing Ghost No. 24506, who had boarded the Hyperion as a spy.

The Magistrate of Mar Sara - You forget his name...

General Edmund Duke - The Terran Confederacy general in charge of Alpha Squadron. Although prejudiced against fringe worlders, Duke is an excellent tactician. He has participated in over 30 major battles on Tarsonis alone. Duke has the Norad II as his flagship. General Duke has just arrived in Los Andares a few days ago.
 


Admiral Gerard DuGalle - A highly decorated admiral of the UPL, DuGalle has spent most of his life defending Earth from it's enemies. By age 64 he was considered the greatest military leader in the UPL.

Sergeant Major Elizabeth Cook - A former Sons of Korhal lieutenant, Cook joins a squad of 12, among them are Mark McHamon and Shei Alabaster.
 


Gabriel Teers - A training pilot in the confederacy, Teers pilots a civilian shuttle to and from Confederate battlecruisers in orbit over Chau Sara. To his dismay, he has been charged with training The Rock. Since being seen with the Sons of Korhal, he is now known to some as a traitor.

Ben Erikson - Leader of the local rebels on Chau Sara. A widely known drug lord of the Sara System. He pilots an unusually fast dropship known as the Void Runner.

Important Spacecraft

The Void Runner - Quantradyne APOD-33 Dropship. Piloted by Ben Erikson. The Void Runner is a custom dropship painted pitch black with purple flame decals on it's broadsides. Enhanced with Kel-Morian engine coils and slow burning vespene fuel cells, the Void Runner moves incredibly fast while burning no more fuel than a regular dropship. As a result, the thrusters burn a clean purple and blue.

It's origins are unclear, but it has become a symbol for Erikson's cartel and rebel militia in the Sara System and can even be traced back to Fagin's Crime Syndicate on Tarsonis.

The Hyperion - Behemoth Class Battlecruiser. Commanded by General Arcturus Mengsk. The Hyperion is the flagship for the Sons of Korhal and home for Arcturus Mengsk. Somewhat larger than other Behemoth Class Battlecruisers, the interior of the Hyperion is well-decorated with paintings and soft lighting, with wide corridors.

This ship was originally a Terran Confederacy battlecruiser which crash-landed on a fiery planet near Umojan Protectorate territory. In 2491 it became part of Arcturus Mengsk's Rebellion of Korhal Mengsk had allied with the Umojan Protectorate and was currently located at Umoja. When the Confederacy destroyed Korhal IV with nuclear missiles, Mengsk renamed his organization the Sons of Korhal and Mengsk renamed the vessel the Hyperion and made it the flagship of his very small fleet.

The Norad II - Behemoth Class Battlecruiser. Commanded by General Edmund Duke. The Norad II, the flagship battlecruiser of Alpha Squadron, has enhanced weapons systems compared to most other battlecruisers. It is also defensively superior to standard Behemoth-class battlecruisers.

The Norad II has had several encounters against The Hyperion. Never resulting in the loss of either ship. Though the Norad II last ended with much more severe damage.
