Star Wars - Adventures from the Edge
Imperial Culture and Heritage Act (ICHA)
Another supposed footnote in galactic politics, the Imperial Culture and Heritage Act or ICHA, went into effect ten years prior to the outbreak of the Galactic Civil War. Enacted by Emperor Palpatine, the ICHA was created as an exploratory branch of the Imperial Research Fund (IRF) to finance and encourage the discovery and exploration of sites belonging to lost civilizations, particularly those of the outer rim.
While no specific goals were stated, the vast majority of funded projects were targeted at outer rim worlds believed to be associated with the Sith Empire, with unprecedentedly high bounties placed on the safe recovery of any surviving Sith Holocrons .
