Keshiil is a poor, non-agricultural and moderate population desert world with no free-standing water, and over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in size.

  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • The population of this world is restless, massive in numbers, struggling in a tough, desert environment, and full of dissent. This world is ripe for revolution.
  • Some hope to establish an industrial business sector here in the near future to increase prosperity. Others are looking into innovative food production means such as hydro- and aero-ponics in hope of making this world food-sufficient.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Dusa Subsector of Vland Sector in the Domain of Vland.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

Keshiil (Vland 0221) is one of only a few worlds in the Dusa Subsector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

A backwater world in a backwater sector, Keshiil has little to speak for it. Colonized by rejects of every sort, pretty much anything goes. The Class C Down port provides repairs and unrefined fuel, but it is advised to watch one's pockets while in the surrounding urbs. The local police aren't interested in protecting their own people, and are even less likely to come to the aid of the random traveller.

Local Nobility[edit]

Keshiil, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
