Ildrissar is a pre-agricultural, pre-Industrial, moderate population world with over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

  • It requires significant imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • Its economy and population are growing and living conditions are expected to slowly improve barring outside forces.
  • This is a "Puzzle" 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 the Carrillian Assembly in the Drexilthar Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Remarks: Ildrissar was, until recently, a member of the Carrillian Assembly. The world attracted settlers due to the great mineral wealth located by surveys of the planet; the high density of Ildrissar was an early indication of the abundance of heavy metals and radioactives present there. This, in turn, is responsible for the world's rather high surface gravity and for the vulcanism which prevails over much of the planet's surface ... hence the atmospheric taint, caused by concentrations of sulphur compounds of unhealthy proportions.

Ildrissar was settled from the Assembly over two hundred years ago (though it was occupied intermittently by corporate outposts and other mining concerns prior to that time). As a member world of the Assembly, Ildrissar enjoyed many benefits, most particularly the support of other Assembly planets during the lean times of the early colonial period.

With the assumption of extraordinary powers by High Justice Daldreem, in direct contravention of the Articles of Assembly, the people of Ildrissar were hit particularly hard by the many changes in government policy which ensued. Higher taxes, a fixed market price for ore sold to the Assembly far below those available from other markets (access to which was to be greatly restricted) and orders for the nationalization of several key industries were all seen on Ildrissar as being completely contrary to colonial interests. Several political factions formed, urging resistance to the Assembly - from conservatives who sought a return to rule by the Articles and the Council of Justice to a handful of extremists who urged complete independence. The extremists used their influence and wealth to begin stockpiling equipment and arms and in hiring offworld mercenaries (for Ildrissar was poor in manpower, but could afford to hire the best in technology and service).

In 1109, the notorious Starport Massacre, prematurely (from the Ildrissaran Patriots' point of view) triggered a full-scale planetary uprising. The Assembly responded to the defeat of the local garrison by gathering a large force, including a contingent of elite Aslan mercenaries, the Teahleikhoi Regiment, to launch a renewed attack on the rebellious colony. The Patriots responded by hiring the Caledon Highlanders to help defend and train their own troops. Although successful in the early stages of their invasions, the Assembly drive has lost momentum and the war on Ildrissar continues to rage at this time.

Ildrissar attempted to secceed from the Carrillian Assembly in 1110. The rebellion was crushed by 1114. There is still some scattered guerilla activity resulting in an Amber travel classification.

The situation on Ildrissar is still in flux, with the Assembly controlling the Starport and several cities and the Ildrissarian Patriotic Front controlling the rest of the planet.
