History

The first peoples of the North lived there since time immemorial. People from across the sea arrived at different times throughout history, most notably in the year 1534. Since then the North has been a mosaic of people from hundreds of nations on Earth and it is this nature that has made our unique Northern identity.

In an effort to expand the North’s influence in the ‘Verse, it’s government helped fund the fledgling Northfield Corporation, now commonly referred to as simply Northfield, to establish a corporate base and conduct business in any way they see fit.

//

Northfield has now become an important corporation, based from the chilly heights of microTech, conducting operations in many fields of business, including security, trade, transportation, medical services, and more. Though originally created for those from the North looking to see what the ‘Verse had to offer and do business together, Northfield has recently opened its doors to new members in a hope that they can create strong bonds with its people while living life in the ‘Verse.

As previous inhabitants of the North on Earth we prefer living in the frigid regions of the galaxy, it gives us separation from the warm bloods and we have become accustom to it, so look for us next time you see frost in the the air, we probably are not far away.

To survive the Northern winter, one needs a body of brass, eyes of glass, and blood made of brandy.
— Louis Armand de Lom d’Arce Lahontan, Terran

Our location on the edges of lawful space is to maximize our freedom to operate and take care of ourselves our own way and yet enjoy the benefits UEE security. As previous inhabitants of Earth we do adhere as closely to UEE law, in addition to any other regional corporate law, as possible, though we recognize that sometimes rules must bend. We actively encourage our members to not engage in criminal activities or conduct business in the darker corners of space.
