|“||Outlaws. Independent operators with varying affiliations profiting from trafficking, extortion, illegal weapons trading, piracy, clone smuggling...||„|
The Outlaws are one of five factions in the Everspace universe. They are a loose affiliation of various clans (such as Elek's Coalition or the Phantom Retaliators) comprised of various unknown races, mainly humans. They are extremely frequent in the Demilitarized Zone and Cluster 34 as a result of the destruction left behind by the Colonial - Okkar war. They are automatically hostile towards the player, and are encountered in almost every zone of each sector.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Outlaws are found in mostly all zones attempting to raid G&B mining outposts, Traders, and Service Stations. Often, the player can find them already battling the local G&B forces and Okkar that are nearby upon jumping into a new system. Occasionally, the Outlaws will ambush the player in certain areas around a zone, but there is enough time to react before they fully jump in. Outlaw turrets can also be found on asteroids as a trap for unsuspecting ships, often near abandoned Colonial structures or derelict wrecks. Occasionally, large hollowed out asteroids will contain Outlaw structures. There are also Outlaw stations, usually with a jump suppressor or comm hub and drone servers/ship hangars, guarded by turrets. These may have been old Colonial or G&B derelicts that have been commandeered by the outlaws.
Codex Entries[edit | edit source]
[[File:]]Outlaw is the term used to describe unauthorized elements operating in the lawless fringes of Colonial territories. In Cluster 34, Outlaw more specifically refers to the loose affiliations of warring clans, cartels, or gangs which comprise of chiefly human, but also numerous alien species.
Outlawism is primarily a human trait stretching far into its ancient history, where they were known as bandits, marauders, and racketeers, among a large variety of other terms. Non-conformist in nature and anarchic in organization, they traditionally pursue self-opportunistic purposes, such as self-enrichment, although some choose this mode of lifestyle for the thrill of adventure alone.
The demilitarized zone of Cluster 34 has become a magnet for those falling foul of the Colonial authorities since its establishment following the peace treaty with the Okkar, and has drawn large numbers of Fleet deserters, escaped criminals, and other desperadoes. Each clan or cartel possesses its unique code of conduct, and members are not unknown to switch allegiances when it is advantageous. Outlaws have been inventive in creating hideaways in unlikely crevices of unobserved space, such as hollowed out asteroids and abandoned military bases. They make use of whatever plundered technology they can get their hands on, and are prone to utilizing traps, stockpiles, heavy ballistic weaponry and similar hit and run tactics.
Outlaw Ships[edit | edit source]
There are several types of Outlaw ships. Most Outlaw ships can be identified by their orange/red trails, and typically have a stronger hull than similar Okkar ships.
