Default The Sung

The Slaver War is described on 1st ed PM pgs 16-7. It had three major phases.

Firstly, the Manchurian Navy shot down the entire Akcheektoon fleet with little loss. Then military ground forces from several nations (although the largest contingents were Manchurian and Canadian) landed on Mother and reduced the Akcheektoon bases by siege. Finally, the Terrans cut deals with the other nations on Stark, gave them technological aid and they took down Akcheektoon as proxies.

Manchuria and Canada acquired territory in Akcheektoon as part of the peace settlement, and Akcheektoon had to pay reparations. Mother has effectively passed to Manchu-Canadian control.

However, the PM also states the other Sung nations (assumidly lead by Sokeeha, as per Randy's stuff) indeed have acquired stardrive technology and have built stutterwarp ships. However Akcheektoon is forbidden the technology. I'm assuming the Sung on Doris are Akcheektoon, is that a reasonable assumption?

NARL (Challenge mag) notes that Xiang slavery continues, so assumidly, the Akcheektoon's were shipping them back to Stark and selling them as labour, where there are still populations of Xiang slaves in the other nations.

This brings me too a question, the Sokeeha etc., are now operating Starships and plan to colonise several worlds on the Chinese Arm (as of 2300), any guesses on which ones?
