Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
I had a short campaign about the fall of Polaris at the end of the rebellion, where the GTVI secretly towed away a WIP NTF Hades class destroyer, the NTD Utopia.

The presence of a second Hades is pseudo-canon(since it is only "suggested" by a tech intro), but it doesn't work for a central GTVA system like Polaris. The second Hades must have been produced in a remote system like Ikeya.

It was an NTF destroyer (completely non-canon, I know). Bosch wanted it as his flagship, but it was not completed. The GTVI used a classified and unstable node in Polaris to tow it away where it could be completed (and studied).

Makes sense, but back on topic. Where do you think the Het-ka has been produced?

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
I'm going to take Altair in consideration(also because of the GVF Thoth's description). Other ideas? Which systems have some kind of HoL presence?

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
Altair, Aldebaran and Deneb, I think.

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
There were some in Alpha Centauri. Is there a map of HoL systems? Where I can find it?

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
It stands to reason they were where there were a lot of Ancient ruins. Those systems are highlighted as having Ancient artifacts on them.

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
But Altair and Aldebaran are two adjacent systems. This makes the HoL a "normal" rebellion.

Actually, they have seeds in basically ALL Vasudan systems. Their HQ is in Altair IIRC.

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
back off topic, I don't recall any canon references to a second Hades ?

Go read the Hades tech description. A second Hades is supposed to be under construction. Both me and Snail used this idea.

Actually, they have seeds in basically ALL Vasudan systems. Their HQ is in Altair IIRC.

I now that they have seeds, but in certain systems(without considering Altair and Aldebaran)their presence and/or their influence over the PVE should be higher. But where, exactly?

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"
What is mindbogling to me is how come the GTA allowed the HOl to exist for so long! The HoL might of been strong but they could in no way be a match to the combined might of the GTA and PVE!

That's why I want to know how big the HoL fleet is supposed to be  :)

Re: "De Malleo Splendente"

PVE = Parliamentary Vasudan Empire, the Vasudan government.
PVN = Parliamentary Vasudan Navy, the Vasudan military.
