Arlu is a large water world with very deep oceans and less than 1% of its land above sea level. The atmosphere is comfortably breathable. The system has a population in the hundreds of thousands, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for the subsector. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Argi Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Arlu, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships. 100% of the world's population is the Minor Race Bwap. During the Long Night this world was named Sakhi.

History and background[edit]

A Bwap colony specializing in crystal production. Most of the cities (pods) are built upon floating islands of a coral-like substance and a symbiotic relationship has developed between the Bwap’s and the island ecology. The Bwaps provide fertilizer for the many plants that grow within the coral and protection from the large ocean predators that like the soft coral underside. In return the ecology supplies food and protection. Each city dweller rubs itself in the islands sap thereby identifying themselves to the various natural island defenses so they remain inert while they pass through.

Although each Bwap community is generally classed as a "Religious Dictatorship", Arlu has been classified differently because each city or pod sends a chosen representative to a common council who then make all planetary decisions. In addition, the planetary law level refers to the openly accessible areas of the planet and not the extremely high law levels of the pods which are off-limits to any but those born there.
