Khulim is a world suited to becoming an agricultural world, but with a population between 10,000 and 100,000 sophonts, but lacks the capability to produce or process sufficient resources to export its projected agricultural produce. The world is tropical with a hot, though still habitable, climate at the upper limits of human comfort. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Argi Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Khulim, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships. During the Long Night this world was named Giikhapuur.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

The world's landmass consists of a single continent, a jungle consisting mainly of fungus and lichen cover most of it. The spores released by the massive jungles of fungus render the air unbreathable for two months a year and they can lodge in an individual’s lungs, growing inside, slowly suffocating the carrier.

History and background[edit]

Due to the dangers involved, only indentured personnel actually stay on the planet. The companies maintain bases in order to search for and gather various fungus but in particular the large fungi known as Golden Spores which can restore vitality and health (but not youth or regeneration) to the human organism.
