The History of Charybdis
by Sam Pincer
Charybdis is a vast and remote galaxy which was, for many ages, only home to a, “sparse scattering of homesteaders and recluses.”
During these early years many pioneering star traders sought their fortunes and settled in this great space.
Charybdis changed forever when Robert “Doc” Hoofler first discovered resource rich gas giants and bountiful ocean planets in the system. This led to a stampede of fortune hunters, confidence men, scoundrels, thieves, and dreamers. The population of Charybdis boomed and the rush for resources outpaced any sense of law and order. Charybdis operate under mob rule and the strong became the wealthy.
Only when their resources were threatened by the neighboring Intergalactic Coalition of United Planets did the citizens of Charybdis finally unite and form the first independent government.
Today, one year after our constitutional convention, the united space peoples of Charybdis live free lives unburdened by the heavy yolk of oppression.
