  • Regular
  • Freelancing

We of the XI Pathfinder Company intend to live on the outer fringes of UEE space, living life as free men and pursuing our own goals regardless of the law.


The History

In 2894, on the fringes of UEE space, the icy planet of Tyrol III went dark. This world, home to 12 million colonists, soldiers, marines, prisoners, bureaucrats, hydroponic farmers – miscreants and adventurers, paragons of virtue, luckless Earthborn and worldless Spacers, called the planet home, or at least a fuelling station, before crossing the threshold into desolate space.

But then, the Vaandul had snapped it’s jaws around the world, plunging the colony city of Puerta, in an artificial darkness of dark hulls, punctuated only by the bright pindrops of weaponry that fell from the heavens. It was a time of death and destruction.

By 2895, Tyrol III was a forgotten colony of UEE. Response forces sent went missing, were destroyed and were, too, forgotten. It was a corner of space too distant to be fought for, it was not Earth, nor Mars or even Nova Indus. The Vanduul made multiple incursions and swarmed the human defenses scattered across the system.

Tyrol III was forgotten, but not lost.

From the ashes of Puerta, the remnants of the colony fought, died and survived. From the death and despair, the disperate came together to fight the Vanduul. From the traces of their defences, the remaining garrison fought on; from their secreted dwellings, the smugglers ran the blockade; from their besieged clinics, the medics tended the fighters; from the basements of their ministries, bureaucrats organized the resistance; and from their labs the scientists probed and prodded for weakness.

All distinct walks of life, all demeanors, all spectrums of honor, forced to fight together not for ideals or hubris, nor for government, but for themselves and each other. All 11 disjointed organizations and industries, from martial to academic, came together to fight and survive.

In 2899, when the remaining Vanduul hulls crashed to the surface or slipped away into desolate space, what remained was the XI Pathfinder Company, the remnants of a desperate defense. When the UEE finally regained contact with the Tyrol III, they found a colony not forgotten, not lost, but standing on the ashes.

The Legacy

The XI Pathfinder Company stands on the periphery of UEE space, tracing its lineage to a fabled colony, but having held the line without Terran assistance. As such, the Company straddles the boundary between this heritage and acceptance of stubborn independence, thoughtful of its heroic organization and defense of Tyrol III. The Company looks after its own, and is not afraid to flex its strength on the fringes of UEE territory. Steeped in the traditions of its curious conglomerate, the Company is at ease in both battle and exploration, and will marshall its strength when needed.

The Organization

Each arm of the Company operates independently, with its own chain of command and its own modus operandi, be it altruistic or nefarious. We need pilots, marines, soldiers, traders, cargo runners, scientists, explorers and privateers to come together as brothers, not to survive, but to thrive.


It is our destiny to live on the outer fringes of UEE controlled space and do whatever it takes to survive and thrive. Our activities include, but are in no way limited to:

  • Freelancing
  • Mercenary Work
  • Mining
  • Blockade Running
  • Cargo Hauling
  • Exploration
  • Bounty Hunting
  • Piracy
  • Salvaging
  • Smuggling
  • Data Running

We have chosen a path that steers clear from the controlling oversight of the UEE, so that we might take advantage of both the legal and legally dubious aspects of the universe.



Whilst rules are made to be broken we observe a code:

  • Don’t steal from fellow members.
  • Respect the chain of command during serious events.
  • (Excessive) Racism or prejudice will not be tolerated.

And that’s it! Remember, we’re all here to have a good time and enjoy our most glorious space sim.
