Arkhaala is a dessert, belonging to Vland sector haute cuisine that consists of a small bowl or basket, formed of braided, crisp-baked, dough straws. The bowl contains sweet fruit jelly, which is applied with a spray bottle, layer on layer, until a thin layer is formed on the inside of the bowl. This jelly serves to keep a sour-sweet cold mousse inside the bowl. A layer of sugared fruit is then arranged on top of the mousse.

Not entirely Vilani in principle, this sweet is much inspired by Solomani desserts. Nonetheless, Arkhaala is rarely found outside Vland Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Trakes grown on Pysadi, however, are acknowledged to be of superior quality to those grown on Zila, and atrake produced from Pysadian trakes is also superior; since winemaking is illegal on Pysadi (Spinward Marches 3008), the logistics of producing atrake from Pysadian trakes can be complex and the price is correspondingly high.

Tech Level TL–9
Weight 30.0 kg

A bio-engineered artificial organism, the bio-still is a genetically-engineered life-form, which will eat organic garbage and excrete alcohol. The bio-still appears as a roughly egg-shaped body, 900mm high and 600mm wide, with a mouth on top and a pair of stout feet on the bottom. The still has a nipple on its front, from which the alcohol is drawn. The bio-still stands still for most of the day, however it will occasionally shuffle its feet and jiggle around. The still can produce around 40 litres of liquid every 5 days. The process of fermentation takes 5 days, after which time the alcoholic liquid can be drawn off via the nipple. The alcoholic fluid is around 14% ethanol by volume. It is essentially tasteless and needs to be flavoured with wine, beer, cider or mixed-drink flavouring. Bio-stills are illegal on a few worlds and are viewed with suspicion on many others.

Deep Caviar are the eggs produced by a large ocean-dwelling fish locally referred to as a Leviathan, and referred to the greater interstellar society as Jenghean Leviathan, found in the depths beyond the continental shelf of Jenghe (Spinward Marches 1810).

The surface of Jenghe is mostly ocean with small island communities which depend on commercial fishing as their main export. Leviathan produce eggs four times per year and a fully mature female can have as much as 60 liters within her egg producing organs if harvested correctly.

The harvest and export of Leviathan parts to include the egg are regulated by the planetary government. The semi-strict regulation prevents over harvesting and drives up the export market. Luxury restaurants on Regina are famous for high end deep caviar imported from Jenghe. It is not uncommon for a liter of eggs purchased at dockside on Jenghe for 10 credits to sell on Regina (Spinward Marches 1910) for 5 to 10 times that amount.

Dustspice (Fteahrao) is a rare euphoric spice used for seasoning food, especially fruit.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Harvested from the bark of the geki bush, a desert scrub-plant native to Romar (Spinward Marches 2140), this seasoning is popular with humans as a mild recreational spice with effects slighter than, but similar to, alcohol. Certain non-human races (notably Aslan and Vargr) find dustspice a much more powerful euphoric; it is in constant demand by those peoples.

Taste and effect varies with growing conditions and the dustspice from different worlds vary considerably in value. Dustspice from Romar is especially valuable to the Aslan. Among worlds other than Romar that are known for producing dustspice are Keanou (Spinward Marches 2411).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In 336, the pleasant taste and mild euphoric effect of the bark of the Geki Bush was noted by a Scout expedition to Romar (Spinward Marches 2140), which eventually led to the Dustspice Wars.

Weight 1.0 gram
Fiwai'al is a much sought-after and expensive plant-based oil used both for cooking and for the manufacture of perfumes.

Derived from a plant grown only on Aslan world of Hroilr (Dark Nebula 1536), which is controlled by the Keiouwyaouryakh Clan. Keiouwyaouryakh closely guards the secret of the art and science of cultivating the Fiwai'al plant and the methods use to refine Fiwai'al as a spice and how to distill Fiwai'al essence for use in perfumery.

It is rarely sold outside the Hierate, since humans find its smell unattractive and it is toxic when taken internally by Humans. Some Solomani Humans have remarked that Fiwai'al perfume smells like panther piss.

Fiwai'al often commands a price equivalent to Cr1.0 per gram. Short-term fluctuations in Hierate stock markets often drive Fiwai'al product prices sky-high, and the long-term price patterns of Fiwai'al commodities are notoriously hard to predict.

Skymelons are a pungent, sharp-tasting fruit grown on Pysadi (Spinward Marches 3008) and have a light blue interior color, hence the name.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The skymelon grows on vines which co-exist with trees; the fruit appears in the upper reaches of the branches, making it difficult to harvest. Many farms have induced the vines to grow instead on trellises with overhead catwalks to facilitate harvesting.

SnakTubes are pre-prepared meals in sealed polymer caddies. They do not require refrigeration, nor do they need the use of a flash cooker or heating unit to heat.

Each SnakTube contains a chemical heating element inside the caddy. To operate a SnakTube, a small tab is broken off the top surface of the caddy. After 30 seconds, the caddy emits a loud clicking sound and the lid separates from the caddy. The food can then be removed from the caddy or eaten straight from the container, using the spoon provided.

SnakTubes come in twenty-four different varieties, including fol ragout with purée of potato, Terran noodles, with sautéed chicken and mushrooms, Lanceshark and cheese dumplings in tomato broth, namako and pork paella, lentil and Leviemeat soup with croutons, and duck and sausage gumbo, with white rice.

A line of 'CampTubes' is also available. They are dehydrated, ultra-lightweight versions of regular SnakTubes, available in eight different varieties. These CampTubes require added water and two minutes standing time. The CampTube caddy features a small sphincter valve on the top, which changes colour when enough water is added.

LeHatte Foods and Plastics are well known for their convenience foods, and the SnakTube is one of their more popular lines. The SnakTube was originally aimed at students and other young people in its advertising campaigns, but now becoming very popular with adults and young couples.

Manufacturer Logan Subsistence Company
Survival Food Ration area special compact, long-lasting foodstuff.
  • The Logan Subsistence Company of Garda-Vilis (Spinward Marches 1118) is proud to announce the introduction of its new line of survival ration packets.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The unopened chocolate-based ration weighs 600 grams in a resealable plastic container which can double as a cup and water container, and is priced at 5 Imperial Credits per survival packet. The multi-use packet and the Vargr hard biscuit packets weight 750 grams in a resealable plastic box, and costs 6 Imperial Credits per ration packet.

The primary component of each ration packet is four 125 gram individually wrapped bars, with each bar providing 600 calories and a balanced portion of the required vitamins and minerals required for the typical human. Included with the four bars are three powdered drink packets supplying Vitamin C in a highly palatable form when mixed with a half-liter of water, and a supplementary vitamin tablet in addition to the vitamins contained in the bars to ensure an adequate vitamin intake. The bars are composed of a mixture of chocolate, dehydrated milk powder, and grains, stabilized to tolerate elevated temperatures, and if desired, can be used to produce a chocolate drink by dissolving the bar in warm water. The four bars together supply sufficient calories to sustain the average size human for one day of moderate activity.

A multi-use bar for both humans and Vargr is similar in packaging and weight, with the primary difference being the use of powdered dried meat instead of the chocolate and additional use of animal fats in the formulation. These bars also supply 600 calories per bar, and are palatable to both humans and Vargr. The supplementary beverage packets contain both the Vitamin C fortified beverage packets and three additional packets of powdered meat broth enriched with salt for the use of the Vargr, although humans also find the broth nourishing and palatable. Two vitamin tablets are provided, one for Vargr use and one for human consumption.

A special Vargr only ration packet is available containing four 150 gram hard biscuits containing a total of 2400 calories and a balanced vitamin and mineral intake without the need of supplementary tablets or beverage packets. The four biscuits are individually wrapped in waterproof packets and may be carried easily in the pocket. This packet would not be suitable for human use, however, except in an emergency.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Logan Subsistence is in the process of testing the ration packets for use by the Droyne and whether a supplemental vitamin will be needed. It appears that both the chocolate-based human bar and the meat-based mult-use bar are suitable for Droyne use as well, with a preference being shown for the chocolate-based bar. Further testing is proceeding, and Logan Subsistence is committed to supplying the highest quality of survival food products to the widest number of consumers for competitive prices.

The Symmonds Tree (Caligoarbor subtilis symmondsi) is a thick-stemmed "bush" which grows to perhaps eight meters in height. Native to Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124).

Physiology and ecology[edit]

Strangely, many aspects of the Symmonds Tree's biochemistry still defy analysis, and it has yet to be placed satisfactorily in the Medurman evolutionary scheme.

Life Cycle and reproduction[edit]

The Symmonds tree reproduces by rhizomes, underground stems growing outward from the base of the plant. These appear different from the hyphae, used for feeding of the plant.

Diet and trophics[edit]

The plant appears to be chemosynthetic, and is a symbiont with an underground network of hyphae or nutrient-carrying tubes, which can extend for many kilometers.

History and background[edit]

The Symmonds Tree has proved to be a rich source of precursor chemicals for certain pharmaceuticals, including fibrillates, nerve growth factors, and other key ingredients for Anagathics. It can be processed into Symal, a soya-like protein.

Pharmaceutical Company Interest[edit]

The following companies have established a presence on Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124) and are actively harvesting, researching, and manufacturing pharmaceuticals based on the Symmonds Tree:

Symmonds Xenoculture - founded in 318, it is perhaps the oldest company interested in the Symmonds Tree.
DeepLevel Harvesting - formed in 862 to break Symmonds Xenoculture's monopoly on the Symmonds Tree harvesting.
Nei'Tan Corporation - a biomedical co-operative run by the Snow Leopard tribe of Alikasch on Medurma (Dagudashaag 2124).
Pharmacologique Fabrique - has taken a recent interest in the Symmonds Tree and its potential.
SuSAG - the Imperial megacorporation specializing in pharmaceuticals has also taken a recent interest in the Symmonds Tree and its potential.

Travellers' Aid Society Advisory[edit]

The Travellers' Aid Society classifies Symmonds tree as non-threatening to most sophonts and makes no special advisory regarding this organism.

Temporal Tonic Wine

Temporal tonic wine is a "Tonic Wine" produced exclusively by the Vargr monks at the monastry of Ghoerrughz, Canine Time Worshippers on the island of Four Winds on Emerald (Spinward Marches 1006).

Temporal Tonic Wine is deep brown almost black in colour, it is sold in a very distinctive large 750ml, dark green screwcap bottle. The label itself is a notoriously bright yellow in colour and features (alongside the large black lettering of the name itself and requisite alcohol content details) the profile of a large black Vargr head, it is grinning (possibly as if drunk) has large staring eyes and a slobbering tongue hanging out of its greying muzzle (hence the name "Old Dog")

The high strength (15%) of this drink is legendary.

The wine was originally sold in tiny quantities by the monastery itself, claiming many medicinal and health benefits with the slogan "Four small glasses a day, for great health and lively blood" (no one ever dared add "a glossy coat" to this motto!) Eventually, the recipe was changed in order for the wine to appeal to a wider customer base, resulting in increased sales.

Recently, "Old Dog" has attained a surprising level of popularity within bohemian and working class communities in certain parts of The Spinward Marches.

Amongst the student community on Regina (Spinward Marches 1910) a fanzine called Old Dog Supernova ran for nearly a decade in the years immediately following the Fourth Frontier War.

In several areas of the Marches it is known as "Startown Table Wine" (A reference to the ubiquity of the drink throughout the various slums of the Marches Startowns where the drink is so common that it can even be found "on tap" in some of the worst bars and gambling dens).

Its iconic stature within the rough, criminal underclass is impossible to over-emphasise and groups of lowlifes can frequently be seen drinking it out of the bottle at all times of the day and night in starports, parks and other public places.

Old Dog and its surrounding culture is so notorious that if is even reffered to in popular culture and song (see "Got my dog" by Terran rock band "Deadhead", and the jazz fusion bongo epic of "Dogtime" by experimental Aramisian quartet "Imperial Air".)

Aside from "Old Dog", other nicknames include "The Hair of the Dog", "Barker Ale", "Clawvine" and "Rocket Fuel" (taken from the notorious incident when Captain Brett Klaag (RIP), a swashbuckling freetrader and notorious drunk attempted to fuel his Beowulf (Nelson’s Pride) with a salvaged crate of Temporal Tonic Wine resulting in the predictably disasterous deaths of himself, his crew and over a dozen starport workers as the ship crashed immediately following takeoff).

Attempts to Control[edit]

There have been many calls over the years for the drink to be restricted or withheld from general sale from both local law enforcement agencies, community welfare groups, and the local Imperial nobility. Many highlight Temporal Tonic Wine as being particularly responsible for disorderly behaviour, crime and general social deprivation.

Magnus Berkstrom, former chairman of local Regina Startown community group "Neighbourhood Action" even called for the drink to be banned outright. He faced an immediate and virulent demonstration by armed locals chanting “Save our Dog”. A violent confrontation was only avoided when a local unit of the Imperial Army Reserve was diverted to the scene with full riot gear. As a direct result of this affair, Mr Berkstom received correspondence from legal teams acting on behalf of the monks of Ghoerrughz. He was subsequently ruined and is rumoured to have fallen into alcoholism himself. A further consequence of Mr Berkstroms’ activities was that sales of Old Dog increased substantially as a direct result of his comments.

A further attack was made by Jonas Du’Pree, the Regina Medical School’s spokeperson. In a public announcement he described Temporal Tonic Wine as "A completely irresponsible drink in its own right and a huge influence on anti-social and reprehensible behaviour”. The monks of Ghoerrughz returned fire by accusing Du’Pree of exhibiting "Despicable manners" and an "utter and complete lack of good judgement".

Ultimately the Emperor Strephon himself entered the debate stating that “While, clearly Temporal Tonic Wine, as this Old Dog is referred to amongst the lower orders, is particularly attractive to the worst elements of our fine society and has, in fact, become somewhat of a badge of pride amongst them, we cannot allow ourselves to deny the availability of this drink to those upstanding members of our Imperium who do desire to enjoy this drink responsibly and those who seek to generate income from its distribution and sale.”

Ultimately all efforts to ban or restrict Temporal Tonic Wine have been completely ineffectual as the revenue gained from the importation of the drink is such that the Imperium is loath to restrict its trade.

The Vargr of Ghoerrughz and their distribution partners continue to strenuously deny that their product is in any way harmful, stating that it is both legally and responsibly enjoyed by the vast majority of purchasers.

Additionally, they also hasten to point out that such areas identified with its acute misuse have been both socially and economically deprived for many, many years, and that Temporal Tonic Wine represents less than three percent of the total alcohol sales in these areas.

Tlaosierlahrau is a spice derived from the seed of the tlaosiear, a tree found on Roakhoi (Reavers' Deep 1224). It is also known as tlaospice, tlao, or seasongold.

The golden seed kernels, when ground, produce a fragrant, light seasoning popular with both Aslan and human gourmets on meat, soups, and stews. Because of the scarcity of tlaosiear and the expense of shipping it, tlaospice commands an impressive price of Cr3 per gram in offworld markets.

A Vargr dish native to Lair (Provence 2402), Z'zezishz is a layered casserole of boiled, puréed yam or potato, with meat drippings and fat beaten in, layered with thick, highly seasoned meat gravy and sautéed, finely diced vegetables.

To prepare the dish, a layer of purée is laid in a greased casserole dish, followed by a layer of gravy, followed with a layer of purée, then a layer of mirepoix, and so on, with a final layer of purée on top. The top of the purée is marked with a fork or other, similar implement, brushed generously with melted butter or fat, and topped with a layer of crisp-fried, granulated, dried meat or chopped, sautéed bacon.

The dish is always heavily salted and laced with pepper or some other hot spice. Z'zezishz is usually accompanied with herbed Vargr crisp-bread.
