Khastok has a trace atmosphere and water available in the form of ice. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Julian Protectorate in the Kakhasaek Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Rukadukaz Republic. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

The independently-minded Khastok residents do not live as well as most of the Rukadukaz Republic, most of whom live at TL 14 levels (indirectly or directly subsidized by the world of Ikon (Empty Quarter 1602).) On the other hand, their economy is not as tightly bound to Ikon as the rest of the republic, either.

World Starport[edit]

Khastok has an excellent quality starport.

  • A Class-A Starport Facility has very well developed shipyards and is capable of producing first rate starships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Sometimes multiple ports of each type.

World Technology Level[edit]

Khastok possesses a Technology Level of TL–11 or TL-B in Hexadecimal Notation.

World Government[edit]

Khastok has a Civil Service Bureaucracy government.

  • It is a government by agencies employing individuals selected for their expertise.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.
  • On Khastok reside several ‘honorary Imperial consuls’ – some human, but most Vargr – who may be able to provide last–minute support and advice for Travellers and the diplomatic teams. Travellers who are wise in the ways of the Vargr ask some of the Vargrs to join them in the negotiations.

World Military[edit]

Pirate risk: like in much of the Vargr Extents, pirating is just a fact of everyday life. Because of the strong Vilani influence in the Republic, local pirates are properly organized and structured, with ‘fees’ and ‘tariffs’ publicly posted on the Net, local interstellar trading houses, and starports. While just about every trader gets a haircut, nobody gets hurt – unless you put up more than a token fight, and even then the reprisal tends to be restricted to “an eye for an eye” level, rather than merely lawless reprisals. (“A life for an eye, a life for a tooth, and ten lives for a life” as less civilized Vargrs put it.)
