Deep Adit is an ellipsoid world whose habitable bands are at either pole, each with its own government. The two governments are politically antipathetic, and have existed oscillating between uneasy truce and all-out war. The rated starport is a Highport run by a nominally neutral committee. Deep Adit is rated Amber by TAS due to persistent piracy in system, and war and lawlessness on planet.

Situation in 4014

The two governments are at war. The North government is recognized by the Prokoetaal as the sole soveriegn state. The South-dominated committee that runs the highport voted out the Northern members for espionage. Several pro-North terrorist attacks in Highport claim abuse and persecution. The authorities are as yet unable to stop the violence.

Piracy

  • Opportunistic piracy by at least two different 200dt Attack Corvettes, Missile armed. Unidentified.
  • Prokoetaal backed raiders sieze arms and supply to the South Pole. Alleged acts of piracy. Ursu Flight: Three 400dt J-2 Commerce Raiders, knockoff of the Yellowjacket Class, operating singly. Flagship is PEF-102 Tantalus
  • Mercenaries from Right Angle (or affiliated) are allegedly responsible for piracy and illegal salvage. 800dt J-4 Mercenary Cruiser Death Knell

Anti-Piracy

  • Deep Adit has a South-run 400dt System Defense Boat, leased from Yang AG. It is currently in Highport undergoing a refit after it was attacked by pirates.
  • Right Angle has partnered with Guild traders to provide space commerce security in Deep Adit and other at risk systems. Two J-2 200dt, one J-3 400dt Patrol Corvettes, one 1200dt Merchant Cruiser Calliope
  • Imperial Navy occasionally patrols with one or two 400dt Corvettes. See Imperial Navy for Bey-Partial roster.
  • The Prokoetaal Expeditionary Forces have shown flag in Deep Adit on two occasions. 8-10 ships, tonnage up to the 12,000dt Destroyer-Carrier flagship, Sword of Kaalu. See Prokoetaal League.

Highport

  • Deep Adit highport is in a TL 10 spinning spaceport in medium orbit, home to 9,000 souls.
  • Facilities at Highport are serviceable but corruption is a constant problem.
  • Security is strained. Private security measures are recommended.
  • Shuttles to both North and South are available. Either are subject to delays and cancellations, and occasional hijacking and redirection.
  • Highport prison currently holds several terrorist suspects awaiting trial. The pending trial has in turn spawned acts of terrorism.

On Planet

  • Both North and South have media restrictions, and both are under martial law.
  • The neutral planetary COAC assets have been destroyed, or siezed by their respective armies.
