Kuell is a pre-industrial hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. It is a member of Julian Protectorate in the Tsahrroek Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Rukadukaz Republic. 30% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr. Less than 10% of the world's population is the Minor Race Bwap.

History and Background[edit]

Kuell is a long-settled Notable World, whose population is known for its architectural ambition. The Tall Towers of Kuell were destroyed by the Imperium during the Julian War, but were eventually rebuilt. However, today’s Vargr population is more noted for its rejection of the True Vargr Gods mania that now dominates the Kuell Cluster than for its steady supply of attractive consumer goods or its heavily processes ores, alloys, and chemicals.

The local Ikonaz Vilani, generally poorer and more insular than the Ikonaz Vargr, now largely live in their own independent nations - officially ruled by ceremonial Vargr monarchies, but practically ruled by Vilani corporations, merchant families, and military dynasties. All three political authorities have a strong democratic component, in imitation of the local Vargr governments, which - in addition to being wealthier and of higher technology than the humans - are straight representative democracies.

Note that Kuell is NOT an independent world: she is officially a territory of Roenksu (Empty Quarter 0205), the regional center of the Julian Protectorate and the Star Legion. Regardless, Kuell is still a Notable World, and she speaks for herself in the Rukadur counsels and committees - and not for her powerful master.
