Gikarlum (TR 2234) is a nonindustrial world, that requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.

  • In a technological universe, societies without industrial capability generally suffer as nearly all manufactured and high tech goods must be brought in at significant cost.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Hkea'as Subsector of Trojan Reach Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Gikarlum is a non-aligned world located in the Hkea'as Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

This world was settled by the descendants of the King Hurg V, a Drinaxian colony ship that was en route to Tisilli when the ship’s drives failed and it ended up landing on Gikarlum.

  • The system of ranks and positions on the colony ship evolved into a hereditary caste system.
  • Eventually Gikarlum re-established contact with the rest of the galaxy.

Non-canon: This funny world with a Vilani name is a far flung colony settled from Vland in the early 400s.

Description[edit]

Non-canon: The colonists were mostly Vilani disenchanted with the young Third Imperium, and who migrated here with the same, mostly Solomani wave that settled the Borderland and other now predominantly human regions of Trojan Reach. Gikarlum is very traditional, all aspects of Vilani culture are enforced by the bureaucratic government, which is itself divided into the traditional three bureax system. The world is not a popular place for crews from either the Regency or the Aslan to visit, as the local authorities are not very keen on turning their world into a watering hole for either, and keep the amenities that attract offworld spacers to a minimum.
