Hyperspace Navigator's Guild
this ancient guild was responsible for the discovery, cataloguing, and availability of hyperspace routes. It was originally founded on the planet Empress Teta, in a mansion in Cinnagar owned by wealthy nobles. The Guild's membership was made up of daring explorers who braved the unknowns of deep space to find quicker ways to get from one major trade center to another. Once a new route was discovered, the right to use the route was sold by the guild, with a percentage of the royalties going to pay the explorers which found it. The Guild existed without major change for many millennia, until the institution of the New Order. The Empire then raided the Guild's computers, stealing information on hyperspace travel routes from the Deep Core to the Unknown Regions.
