This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Arnakhish Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland.

History and background[edit]

Point of Interest: Oraclian Droyne[edit]

The Droyne of Oracle are scattered desert dwellers who have a body of oral myths and legends that form the fundamental background to the Droyne society. The oral myths form the history of the race; new events are either forgotten within a few generations or are incorporated into the song cycles. Droyne legends refer to the arrival of the Vilani scouts (about 12,000 years ago) as well as climatic change and what is possibly events during the final war. Other songs teach their young their duties and obligations, laws, social customs, and sources of food and water. Droyne can navigate through unknown territory, following ancestral paths identifiable through topographical features given significance in the song cycles. Social life is complex and conservative. Precedence for any action has to be found in the myths or to be inspired by the lives of legendary heroes.
