History and background[edit]

Kuriishe is one of the most peaceful planets in the Imperium. The people here have not known war since the Rule of Man, and the separate states interact on a level almost unheard of anywhere else.

The most popular resort is at Darlan, where views of Kuriishe's only natural water reserve, Lake Darlin, are quite spectacular. Visitors should also take in the waterfalls at Salish that serve the great lake. Care should be taken when venturing out onto the lake, as it is populated by the poisonous Bula fish. These fish are almost identical to another fish called a Jaeshe, which is a great delicacy on Kuriisshe. This tends to lead to a great deal of confusion in many culinary facilities, causing the highest rate of natural food poisoning in this sector.

Other landmarks of interest are the Valleys of Lryin, which are so deep that the local meteorologists have been able to determine that at their deepest point, the valleys enter a period where the ecosystem changes enough for special types of flora to flourish just twice a year. One of the most beautiful flowers that can be found in the valleys are the S'Broos flower. Vast sheets of the plant cover the valley sides at the 1,000m to 1,650m range and when in season they can bloom for up to three continuous days and nights before closing its lovely dark blue and purple petals again. While the blossoms are open they absorb enough radiant energy to nourish and support them for half the local year. A certain amount of energy is lost in the process resulting in a display of bio-luminescence from the open petals that enables them to be seen from miles away, and looks like a giant purple and dark blue reflecton to the casual observer.
