Muruk has both an unbreathably thin atmosphere and a lack of surface water making habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. Government control of this world is by an external military force. This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Remnants Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Muruk, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Luuli Mi. 100% of the world's population is the Minor Human Race Ziadd.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

A wholly Ziadd planet, all but 2,000 of the inhabitants live in towns on the banks of the 'Garden Lake', the only body of water on Muruk's surface. This is situated in the lush, green plains that cover the northern hemisphere.

History and background[edit]

Although confined to its tech level under the "fair rule" of Dy'doria Queen of the green lands, empress of the garden lake and of the Dy'dorian empire, a vast industrialization is taking place. Limited by its thin atmosphere, steam power and internal combustion is very difficult to attain for the mass market. The local scientists are unconventional and explore every avenue of research, however outlandish it seem.

Most homes are electrified, powered by hydroelectric and efficient solar power. This was achieved by simple understanding of the principles and ignorance of the idea that a TL–4 world can not produce such things.

Dy'dorian scientists are currently working on a whole spectrum of technologies, from rocket engines to grav technology. Muruk engineering is simple, rugged, and enormous; over design is commonplace. Muruk is an open market for mid-tech level ideas, samples, and manuals.
