History and background[edit]

E'khua is one of the Medurma Gateway systems, serving as a connection with the sprawling Sylean Main. The world is geared to make money from the ship crews crossing the neck.

The high law level applies only to the natives of the world, and not to the huge sprawling startown that surrounds the starports. The light level of taxation for the natives is possible due to the high levels of income generated by the startown itself.
