History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Though Kfoethoennael (Knoellighz 1040) B5978CC-6 Ga Ph Pi / Tp was the gateway system for explorers, surveyors and settlers into Knoellighz Sector and the initial stepping stone for the Infinity League, this world suffered repeated and often violent indecision as to its allegiance to either the newly-forming League or the Saeknouth Dependency immediately Rimward in Gvurrdon Sector. Throughout the expansion of the newer polity into Piprninsh Subsector and Khuzedhoth Subsector, the Vargr of this world have engaged in more than one civil war to determine that allegiance. At one point, for the span of a year, the world was non-aligned in a stalemate armistice.

As the Infinity League grew past the then Jump-1 main later named the Bridge of Destiny, Kfoethoennael nearly destroyed itself in the nuclear bombing of the Downport, then A-rated. Though further devastation was planned, it was the Emissaries from both the League and the Saeknouth Dependency that came to the mainworld and sued for peace. An accord was drawn in the form of a constitution that placed a junta in power in perpetuity. Since then the world has only become more strict and solidified in its government on the jurisdiction of the two acting polities. Soon after the constitution was ratified, a new Downport was constructed on the far side of the planet. War-torn, Kfoethoennael has sunk in Importance, trade and Tech Level as average Jump technology allowed starships to bypass this world, reaching deeper into the frontier of Knoellighz. To this day a memorial of lead and concrete stands at ground zero of the old Starport.

Though still a thoroughfare world between two polities, Kfoethoennael has settled into a communistic peace with itself and has spent the years trying to regain its trade route clout. The system features ample wilderness refueling in its four Gas Giants. Prospectors of the single, wide planetoid belt in the sixth orbit ply their trade for the lead, meteoric iron and copper. The government-controlled Downport has no extraterritoriality and visiting ships pass through stringent customs checks and searches at the drop of a hat.

A Dense and Tainted atmosphere, (at 1.7 pressure), is largely due to commuting smog from combustion engines and the refineries needed to process the fossil fuels needed by the populace. The planet, at 8000km diameter, manages a .055 surface gravity on the forgiving side of the average thanks to a dense core. It is the hopes of the local regime to elevate the mainworld to Industrial (In) and High-Population (Hi) dirtside and someday into space again to boost the economy and draw to the system. A 70% hydrosphere presents large oceans and a healthy fishing industry. In the swamps and bayous of one underdeveloped continent live a particularly venomous dragon similar to a crocodile and reach up to 20 feet from nose to tail tip. Of note is the swamp dragon’s death roll, a violent means of drowning and envenoming its prey in deeper waters.

The bitterness and scandal of this world’s civil wars has almost forced the Infinity League to lay a version of the Imperium Amber Zone on this member world. The Office of the President has issued an edict that should the planet break out into another fission event; an interdiction may be imposed much to the chagrin of the Commerce faction of the League.

History-Era: Virus Era 1130s[edit]

At TL–6, this world manages to avoid infection by Virus though a few visiting vessels had to be shot down as their systems came to awareness while docked. Thanks to protective Vargr and Zhodani arriving at Kfoethoennael earliest of Knoellighz Sector, the distant Regency quarantines managed to fend off disinterested Vampire Fleets after just one space battle at 100 Diameters.

History-Era: Empress Wave 1159[edit]

One of the last worlds of Knoellighz Sector to be enveloped by the Empress Wave from the galactic core, Kfoethoennael had little in the way of contact with psionics having banned the mental Talents at the signing of its constitution and current regime. If any Psions did suffer the Wave on this mainworld, they received little to no attention and the Wave passed without reaching state media notice.
