Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
Masters of the Devore Imperium, the Devore are a humanoid species very similar in appearance to Humans leading a strong interstellar community on a similar technical level to the Federation. The Devore originate from the planet Deverone located at the center of their territory. The Devore are a strong military power, and have expansionist policies, but prefer to absorb willing planets into their Imperium, offering mutual agreements for sharing technology and defensive capabilities.
The Devore have spread rapidly throughout their territory, with the Devore as senior sentients within the Imperium, their military is manned solely by the Devore, although absorbed worlds are allowed to maintain local law enforcements and minimal planetary defense forces to supplement the Devore navy.
Although maintaining a superior attitude to their member species, the Devore do accept and understand them, treating them as lesser partners, over conquered foes. Moreover, this attitude translates into a wary acceptance of peaceful travelers through their territory.
The Devore have one major dislike. They are rabidly intolerant of psionics, going out of their way to hunt them down and incarcerate them. However such incarceration is often directly connected to the deaths of any who are captured, often leading to refugee’s evading the Devore authorities who often search vessels at random, even multiple times to ensure that all psionics are apprehended. This attitude even extends to psi-capable species aboard vessels traveling through their space, whether they are citizens of the Imperium or not.
This hatred stems from recent events on the Devore homeworld, after an abortive coup by psionics over a century before. The small group was destroyed and in a fit of paranoia all psionics were declared illegal by the Devore authorities, their leaders giving the Armed Forces draconian powers resembling martial law and a free hand to enforce the laws against psionics any way necessary.
This situation is compounded by the fact that the development of psionics is the next evolutionary step for the Devore. Slowly, over time they are developing psionic abilities, faster even than the authorities are able to hunt them down.
