A political and trade organization that occupies a large region of sub-astral space. It is composed of several member nations as well as a number of shared systems.
The EmCon was formed in the aftermath of the Illithid War. The Empyrean Alliance which had formed to resist the Empire elected to retain many of the political and trade ties formed during that conflict, while respecting each member nation’s right to self-govern.
The capital of the EmCon, the Fortress of the Open Sky has proven a major hub of adventurer activities.
