Leageheim is a Known World, and the main planet of the Merchant League.

TechnologyEdit

One of the most disctinctive features of Leagueheim is the technology level, being the heir of the Second Republic remnants. 

Tech trades are the main economic forces of Leagueheim. Most of the major guilds trade in tech: being scavenging ancient tech, repairing or replacing it, or handling the most iconic tech (starships).

HistoryEdit

Pre-Dark Ages name: Liberty [1]

The De Vatha family (owner of Apollo Industries) fled Byzantium Secundus to Liberty in 4015 with the jump gate coordinates for the Second Republic and the technological method of creating jump keys [1]

M.S.T.R. (Mobile Strategic and Tactical Resources) fled to Leagueheim during the Divestiture in 4352 to help out the nascent guild structure. [2]

No other planet in the Empire can claim to have as many technological wonders as Leagueheim. No other planet can claim to have politics as vicious as Leagueheim, either. With several hundred guilds represented on the planet, anything can - and does - happen. Here anything that can make someone a firebird is legal and already being done. Still, discretion is the key word here. No one wants the Inquisition ruining the fun.

Once the hub of free market ideals and democracy, Leagueheim has changed significantly over the centuries. Every guild in existance has a headquarters here, many are only here and nowhere else. There are many "Pollution Zones" that dot the world - sites of abandoned factories that are too polluted to be habitable. Kesparate is the only city and it sprawls to cover the entire land mass of the planet. The world suffers from severe global warming due to excessive pollution.

Solar SystemEdit

Leagueheim is a vast system, having several planets, asteroids and a space station.

LocationsEdit

KesparateEdit

This city is so huge and sprawling that it covers the entire planet's surface. Some 15% of the city's space, however, has had to be abandoned due to the toxic pollution from factories. Some spots of nature survive as parks and preserves for the wealthy.

Academy Interatta Edit

The Academy is the most prestigeous Educational Institution in the Known Worlds. It serves the guild by ensuring a wealth of knowledge is at their disposal.

Library of Horace Edit

Main library of the Academy Interatta.
