History and background
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.
