History and background[edit]

Niishulam was originally a pirate stop. It was discovered in 485 by Admiral Jenkins, who bombed the port into submission and then proceeded to carry out mass executions. These only halted when the Admiral left to continue his hunt for the exiled Duke Tarok Vilsarikaa. He never returned. A small Naval Base was established which remains to this day.

While all the civilian population live within the same cities and share life support facilities and the Starport with the Naval Base, the population have split into independent family clans loosely based upon pirate 'krewes'. These 'krewes' each maintain a one or more small starships for charter and salvage operations. A strong rivalry exists between the clans and violence frequently erupts in the streets.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Niishulam, as a member world of the Third Imperium has a member of the Imperial Nobility overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Niishulam has a good quality starport.

  • A Class-B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.
