Dashgurus is a rich and agricultural production world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system supports a population in the millions of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for Charted Space. The world is tropical with a hot, though still habitable, climate at the upper limits of human comfort. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Gadde Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Dashgurus, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the feifdom of a baron. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Gin.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

The First Imperium settlers colonised the planet less than a hundred years before the onset of the Long Night. It proved to be a highly fertile, jungle planet teeming with a wide variety of carnivorous lifeforms. While the environment proved to be extremely hostile, the settlers had the technological edge. Machines pushed back the wild frontier, creating large tracts of highly fertile land. Cites began to spring up all over the Southern continent, and then disaster struck. With the onset of the Long Night the supply ships suddenly stopped coming. Machines began to break down with alarming regularity. The Jungle and its inhabitants began to once more encroach upon the settlements. The Dashguru quickly adapted to the requirements of their new home. They evacuated the cites and moved to small settlements along the coast where they voluntarily adopted a low but self-sustainable tech level and began to rebuild their lives.

Later when the Kuriishe Eraki arrived, they found a thriving fiercely independent TL–3 society.

History and background[edit]

Originally named 'Gin', a common Vilani term meaning 'hostile' in the old Vilani language the planet was renamed by its first colonists.

Dashgurus remained independent until annexed by the Third Imperium. Even after entering interstellar society, the Dashguru stubbornly refused to accept an externally maintained tech level preferring instead to only adopt those technological advances that could be built and maintained on-planet. About 700 they reached and stabilized their society at TL–5.

While the Southern continent is now completely tamed and is prime arable land the Eastern continent is maintained as a Jungle. Dashguru young about to enter maturity must undergo the trial of surviving three days and three nights in the jungle interior without equipment if they wish to be classed as full citizens.

Dashguru is famous for Gin's Gin, an alcoholic beverage exported all over the Sector.
