Do you like Sci-Fi? While I finish up my next novel, I have started an online fiction series called Forbearance. Picking up from the canteen scene in Bellicose, we meet Keius Minjen, a postal marine, as he tries to survive the battle planet Guna to exact revenge and one day liberate his homeland.
Sign-up if you want me to send you news about upcoming installments of Forbearance or my other writings.
The Rouphi Academy was first sponsored by the Hegemonic Economic Trade Group on Souldogle Prime just prior to the discover of the Dio En Mashino. The Rouphi where a small splinter of the Chovim Family. Its early history and focus appears devoted to the study of interstellar economics and the development of insterstellar trade law. The Academy was a strong supporter of both the Terran Republic and the Imperium.
That focus continued, to one extent or another, and prevails today. The Academy quickly rose to prominence as the fashionable place for aristocratic and noble scions to learn the games of power. This was quite valuable for the HETG until outside investment made the academy a primarily independent body after the Muzigle Fiasco. This also had the effect of essentially restricting the student body to “normal” humans.
The Academy came to have a competitive relationship with Klister University. While Klister University was the Imperium’s great center for scientific and engineering research, Rouphi Academy became the Imperium’s great center for cultural, social, and policy advancement. While both institutions had colleges and programs in the other’s expertises, neither ever managed to encroach on the other’s reputation.
The Academy’s endeavours suffered mightily from the Kuberian Movement, eliminating the sholarly value of many of its programs. The Academy still functions today, but its future is in doubt as the galactic culture changes.
