History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Merganser, formerly known as Khuraaga (Anglic: Khuraaga), is an agricultural world located on the Rim Main within Vega Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Vegan Autonomous Region.

Merganser is important for its resources, but is very inhospitable for Vegans: its high gravity makes it especially uncomfortable for Vegans and the world has a significant human population. Human contract labor can earn very good wages during the typical three-year contract on Merganser
