The UMC continues to talk about current events in the Star Conflict universe. The history of fringe sectors is being made before our very eyes.
Zone: Fort Muerto
The Vega system has been a stronghold of pirates who created a fortified Muerto base here for decades. All criminals of the sector ranging from organized criminal groups to market pickpockets are here to pay respect and beg for protection from the pirate Baron who rules Fort Muerto.
All the smuggling of artifacts and iridium flows through the Fort, that greatly attracts mercenaries who either buy goods at speculative prices or arrange organized raids on storages with artifacts.
Here, in specially protected internal spaces, there are storages of artifacts, smuggling items and iridium. A sweet spot for all lovers of easy money. The most important information that governments and secret services would give out a lot for.
Many secrets are kept by the Baron — the ruler of Fort Muerto. One of the most mysterious personalities in the border sectors. Rumor has it that the Baron once hired mercenaries through the Broker to steal artifacts from himself! Perhaps this is how he wanted to get rid of the Precursor artifacts that bring death to the one who has them.
