Dzourzzo is an agricultural world with an ideal environment for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. It supports a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system hosts a population between 100 thousand and 1 million. This world has a research station engaged in the scientific pursuit of knowledge. This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Infinity League in the Khuzedhoth Subsector of Knoellighz Sector.

System Data[edit]

Dzourzzo upon second survey was found to be home to a M6 V red dwarf primary star with no other stellar or sub-stellar bodies present.

One Gas Giant clouded with many planetoid moons, or Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) are ear-marked for prospecting stymied by the local government red tape until 1111. There are no planetoid belts to exploit to the gratitude of the Agriculture faction. In orbit above the Giant's largest moon is the system’s Research Station (Rs). Its scientists, architects, technicians and general staff specialize in starship design and construction. This is Dzourrzo’s only nod to the Naval faction and is subject to occasional anti-war demonstrators at the gates of the mainworld Downport. Demonstrators believe, often incorrectly due to lack of research into the facts, that the Research Station is devoted solely to warship design and construction. Vessels from the Infinity League Navy occasionally arrive in-system to touch base with the facility or deliver new innovations and prototype revisions to Adhgurrgh (Knoellighz 0836).

Mainworld Data[edit]

Dzourrzo is one of the smaller agricultural worlds in the Infinity League. The mainworld’s surface gravity of 0.7 allows for greater numbers of ranching beasts though each is smaller in size.

Mainworld Geography & Topography[edit]

The Standard atmosphere is also comfortable with a lower average pressure of 0.9. This gives rise to seasonal monsoons and a healthy water cycle across the three, stream-cut continents.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Large oceans belting the equator yield a plethora of aquatic life including photic zone corals and forests of sargasso seaweed trees. Deep sea coelacanths are found to be a delicacy though the occasional catch can be expensive to process and serve at a restaurant. One large specimen can feed a table of six Vargr.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Dzourzzo (Knoellighz 1035) D665556-6 Ag Ga Ni Rs/ Tp is the third co-capital of the Infinity League polity in the Spinward-Rimward corner of Knoellighz Sector. The middle-child of the agricultural breadbasket worlds of Khuzedhoth Subsector, this Temperate (Tp) world shares in an experiment involving three tiers of food production technology in the League overseen by the Agriculture faction. As Egang and Aeo (Knoellighz 1034 and 1036 respectively) analyze high- and low-tech agriculture, Dzourrzzo seeks to maximize its farming, ranching and fishing produce between the two.

The population of Dzourrzo agrarians focuses upon its resources and gives little attention to visiting starships. 100,000 Vargr of the Agriculture faction have left the D-rated Downport in favor of a calm life in the Startown’s outskirts, fishing harbor and rural ranches. A Feudal Technocracy partitioned by each resource pride them on the mainworld’s output to feed the rest of the Infinity League. This gives them some clout when their faction clashes with the Office of the President at Duelunogoerruez (Knoellighz 1138) or the polity Naval faction at Adhgurrgh (Knoellighz 0836). The seasonal population rises and falls with visiting craft, some fishing tourism and ranching sports, (rodeos, cattle drives, etc.)

World Starport[edit]

Dzourzzo has a poor quality starport.

  • A Class D Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many skilled personnel who can perform minor repair work.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class very rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World Technology Level[edit]

Dzourzzo possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

World Government[edit]

Dzourzzo has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.

World Culture[edit]

The culture of Dzourrzo has sided with the gradually increasing, anti-psionic movement across the Infinity League. After 1116, when psionics imported from the Zhodani Consulate from Spinward, is further rumored, the Vargr of Dzourrzo become Vargr-centric in that while they protest Zhodani ‘taint’, they are tolerant of Vargr Psions and their race’s mindset concerning removing the Humaniti element from Vargr psionics. Also under protest are psionic technology and pharmaceuticals again shared from Spinward. Telekinetic device switches are especially hated by the un-Talented Dzourrzoans. While a Vargr Psion can technically live unharmed on Dzourrzo, his or her Talents should be kept hidden lest they be mistaken for Zhodani ‘taint’.

Historical Data[edit]

Virus Era 1130s

Vampire Fleets arriving in-system initially ignore the mainworld and target the Research Station in the 1130s. Virus infestations wreak havoc on local networks there, but have little effect on the mainworld accept to cause fail-safe shutdown of nuclear power reactors at the Startown. The Downport on Dzourrzo is bombarded from orbit and decimates the landing field and all inert ships present. Recovery is quick once quarantine precautions arrive from Gvurrdon Sector and, reluctantly from the Zhodani Consulate to Spinward.

Empress Wave 1154

When news of the nearby Riot of 1152 on Egang (Knoelighz 1034) is heard by the Dzourrzoans later that year, many anti-psionics protestors coalesce upon the D-rated Downport to peacefully observe silently and passively protest at departing Vargr citizens and visiting Zhodani Psions who wish to escape the Empress Wave. With plenty of forewarning, this world quietly holds vigil as the 'Talented' take a nervous leave of their homes, agrarian lives and depart to attempt a shielded crossing of the Wave. The protestors instead hold red candles laterally, the red wax dripping from the flames symbolizing dripping blood.
