Is there any sourcebook covering the dozens of worlds abandoned after this conflict. I understand that even until the latest Era by 3150 they were not colonized again. Why?

There's a few pages on the Outworlds Wastes in ISP3. Basically, they all dropped off the map after the Star League bureaucratic and technological support evaporated, and about half of them are probably still out there as pirate havens or isolated backwaters, with little to no means of communicating with the outside world beyond random deep periphery traders.

  • I agree to disagree.
Trust us, it's actually a great book focusing on the Periphery and the Deep Periphery.  If you like the Periphery as much as I do, you will love it.

Isn't that the Interstellar Expeditions sourcebook? I didn't know it was called ISP3. But yeah this book gives some real good details about the Outworld wastes and even has some small states that still exist within said Wastes (just like the states that exist within the Canopus wastes or the remnants of the Rim Worlds)

There's also Touring the Stars: Wynn's Roost, which tells the story of the capital world of one of the abandoned provinces. It explains why these worlds were settled, why they seceded from the OA, how that turned out for them (spoilers; poorly) and gives an example of what a surviving colony looks like by the end of the Jihad.

There's also Spotlight: Thermo Police, which is a wandering Merc unit that gets hired by various parties into the wastes to provide law enforcement, peacekeeping duties, and anti-piracy duties.

I second that. You can also look up Outworld Waste  over at  Sarna.
