Era: New Era

Rhise is a non-agricultural and nonindustrial vacuum world, which warrants hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It has few prospects for economic development. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Lanth Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Rhise had been long divided between warring factions intent on monopolising the world's scarce water resources. An especially nasty world war in the 1080s nearly included the use of weapons of mass destruction, and that trip to the brink of extinction was an epiphany for the locals. Over the course of the 12th century, the feuding governments have devolved their power to a new planetary council with complete authority over the military and the badly needed water.
