To be updated as universe circumstances change after we decide what happens after around 200 year time difference
With the ‘ascension’ of Xylus and the crowning of the new Emperor, the power of the nobility rises, leading to increased noble influence in matters traditionally ruled by the church, including the elections of Factors and the Senate.
The part of the universe inhabited by the Qzin has remained untouched since the Qzin Invasion, all diplomatic missions not even able to establish basic communication with the reclusive species.
Recently, the Imperial Office of State has received distressing calls from Drokor planets not within the Imperial sphere of influence, who the Antians have not managed to bring under the light of Xylus. All of the calls speak of a sudden end of Qzin trade shipments, along with other goods that the Drokor have slowly learned to rely upon. The calls also usually mention society-wide panic and chaos, and appear to have been sent sometimes weeks in the past. Clearly the Drokor were running low on whatever the Qzin supplied them that made them able to survive in the galaxy.
