Grkaan Loc is a nonindustrial, fluidic hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • A fluid world has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids.
  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This die back world was once settled and developed, but the inhabitants have either died off or left leaving behind the remnants of their civilization.
  • This is a frozen world, with a climate of extremely low temperatures.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a member of the Solomani Confederation in the Auva Subsector of Alpha Crucis Sector.
  • This world has a nearby Naval Base, usually associated with military starships.
  • This world has a nearby Military Base, usually associated with military ground forces.

Native Sophont (NIL): Grkaadudgaagii[edit]

The world is governed by the Grkaan Loc Institute for Xenological Studies, a highly politicized Solomani Party-controlled institution devoted to studying and exploiting the world’s two most important features: native methane-based organic products and the ruins of its alien TL 8 civilization.

  • In -4100 the Vilani made contact with a minor alien race native to Grkaan Loc, the Grkaadudgaagii, a xenophobic methane-based species. Their balkanised early atomic era civilization adjusted poorly to the shock of first contact and destroyed itself in a nuclear spasm. The scandal induced Sharurshid to halt further exploitation of the sector.
