The Silver Boys of Crom

Not far from Lugh there is a system named Crom. Crom is a desolate nothingness. Just the place for a banished God and his unwanted followers. For it is by no accident that this system is named so…

When the first settlers of the Lugh system had fully established themselves on the beautiful world of Tir Na Lugh it was not long before the first signs were reported that this new found religious freedom had brought with it a darker side. In ancient times many Gods were worshiped before the three great Abrahamic faiths stamped their mono-God-belief systems onto the ancient more spiritually understanding cultures that greeted them. But among these many ancient faiths was the worship of ‘The Great Crom Cruach’ – An unforgiving, callous, malign and uncaring warrior deity with an unquenchable thirst for blood…

When the first confirmed reports of his worship were reported in Lugh the alarm went up and his followers arrested. Later formal debate resumed and arguments made but in the end it was decided that Crom’s presence would not be accepted within Lugh’s realm and those ‘Silver Boys’ that had escaped the native people of Lugh’s wrath were banished and fled from Lugh never to be seen again.

That is until now…

The Crom system now houses the decedents of the Silver Boys and recently they have produced leadership bearing that very title. From our current reports it would seem they have been running a very profitable pirate operation out of the single station that orbits the star. While these ‘Silver Boys’ have been within the knowledge of the Crimson State Group for some time, it has never been within their power to address this situation and so out of sight and out of mind these followers of the Dark God have been allowed to fester.

Among the many rumours regarding the missing children of Lugh leading up to the Great War also circulated one which pointed squarely at the Crom system. While it is almost certain that the Lugh For Equality party is deeply involved in the abduction of these children it is not certain just what exactly has happened to these kids. Much of this has been rumour and besides the odd child that has been recovered and spotted in the slave markets, their physical condition and state of mind afterwards has always left little but a shell of the person their parents once knew.

The Crimson State Group is currently commissioning an investigation of the Crom system which requires operatives to befriend the Silver Boys, to infiltrate their trust and find out as much as we can about what goes on there. We must find out just how deep this rabbit hole goes and if indeed our worst fears are true and that the worship of the Dark God still festers in this remote back water system…
