Velpare (1623 Core A567634-9): Velpare is known
throughout Core Sector for its
fine cuisine. The chefs of the world cook up a variety of delicacies, all
prepared from the native plant and animal life. One spice in particular,
the varinte plant, is highly prized for its sweet, pungent flavor, and
can be bought as far away as Vland.
Velpare is the subsector
capital; the Count of Frethe, an influential noble in the Moot,
holding thousand of proxy votes, hails from here.
The Scout base
in the Velpare system is small,
but is an important node in the X-boat
network, overseeing operations in a five-parsec radius. -core
