Haniiwa is a nonindustrial, oceanic water world.

  • It is covered with very deep oceans with less than 1% of its land above sea level.
  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 1% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • 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. This world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lamas Subsector of Deneb Sector and in the Domain of Deneb.

Era: New Era

Rrourring is a preindustrial, oceanic water world.

  • It is covered with very deep oceans of water with less than 1% of its land above sea level.
  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 1% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support 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 world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Lamas Subsector of Deneb Sector. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr.


Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

This world is located in the Antra Pocket.

It is the homeworld of the Haniiwa, a sophontic species and minor race.

Native Sophont: Haniwa[edit]

The homeworld of the Haniiwa minor race. The Haniiwa are a semi-aquatic species that lives in the surf zone of the world various coral islands and reefs. They resemble the Terran Assassin Bug, and they are descended from aquatic predators. The Haniiwa were originally open ocean hunters, before climate change and overhunting forced them to take up "aquaculture", domesticating and raising their favorite food species. Organized around loose pack structures, they formed a collective of communities under the control of a representative-style authority. When first discovered in the 400s, the species had attained TL–3, aided in part by their successful manufacture of metal implements. Their world was interdicted as per Imperial law and was blissfully unaware of the greater universe.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Military units from the Assemblage of 1116 invaded the world in 1122 and renamed it Rrouring, and a base was established to support further raiding operations against other neighboring Imperial worlds. The first contact between the Vargr and the Haniiwa went badly, and sporadic fighting erupted between the two groups. When the Regency declared the world Fait Accompli in 1132, it did so without a clear idea of the situation, and the announcement caused the Haniiwa to declare a total war against the Vargr. Regency troops had to intervene to prevent a massacre of Vargr refugees, and the two groups were disengaged with great difficulty. The Vargr Ngorsraek live in a fortified chain of islands in the cold northern polar region of the world, well away from the tropics loving Haniiwa. MoI and RISS patrols keep the two groups from bumping into each other, and protect both groups from the other's aggression.
