Gareesh Ra is an agricultural world with an ideal environment for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. The system has a population in the hundreds of thousands of sophonts. This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for Charted Space. This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Kuriishe Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Gareesh Ra, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a baronet, and the fiefdom of a baron. All three 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 Gaar.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Every colonisation brochure described Gareesh Ra as the ideal; the dream planet for anyone tired of the technological rat race and ready to build their own future with their own hands.

Most of the planet’s surface is covered with temperate woodland, through which an extensive network of rivers and lakes spread out - most of the planet’s water is found here rather than in the few small oceans that exist.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Gaarian Javelineer is an interesting creature species which demonstrates a dramatic sexual dimorphism, to the extent that the two genders fill different ecological roles.

History and background[edit]

Settlements have spread out along the rivers, and much of the communications system is organized around riverboats. Despite modern power plants and materials, the design most commonly used is similar to a Mississippi paddle steamer.

Although the place has been extensively settled and developed by those who have already arrived. The settlements are mostly agricultural in nature, but there is also a thriving bio-diversity project engaged in detailing every plant and animal species and assessing them for their usefulness. This is organized by GBC, a company wholly owned by the descendants of Professor Haran O’Hare, who was the botanist on the colony prep team originally assigned to Gareesh Ra.

Over the years GBC has grown from a small scientific endeavour to a major corporation employing many explorers, researchers and salesmen - many of their discoveries are licensed to other companies rather than exploited by GBC itself. Since 1105, GBC has begun to extend to neighbouring systems, some of which welcome their expertise but others of which regard them as unwelcome raiders. Former scouts and others capable of undertaking biological - and more recently geological and other resources - surveys may be able to find employment or contracts with GBC, particularly those who are capable of looking after themselves in hostile situations.
