History and background[edit]

This world has been settled since the first Vilani exploration of Dagudashaag. Although outwardly idyllic, Lemuria has resisted attempts at extensive colonization due to large number of differing microscopic pathogens which have an alarming predilection for the Vilani. The world on a number of occasions has been quarantined with access strictly controlled.

There have been six colonization expeditions, the most recent in 642, and all have met the same fate - extinction. The most common causes of death are respiratory and circulatory distress, although the further removed from the Vilani race the more resistant individuals are against these diseases.

The current population comprises IISS scientists and technicians from the service’s medical branch investigating the problem. It is believed that the IISS have now developed a range of vaccines to allow future, safe colonization efforts.
