Roulnoul is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Roulnoul Society of Psions-9, like the Lodaeegzzuen Collegia of Psionics selects its applicant students from those vetted by the Colony Owners on Ksoegusnoeks (Gzaefueg 2638), without advertising directly.

Roulnoul / Nikhigireki (Gzaefueg 2739) C754664-3 Ag Ni / Lt O: 2638 {-1} (855+0) [3575] RU200 200 12W VRo5 K4V – M D is a low-tech, Colony world of Ksoegusnoeks. The Thin atmosphere is just forgiving enough to allow the Vargr here to breathe without Compressors. Those Travellers visiting the Downport find they are nestled in a chasm canyon below sea level which thickens the air just enough for comfort.

Roulnoul is a provincial and almost pastoral, backwoods world with farms dotting the Size 7 world. Exported foods to Ksoegusnoeks ensures the Colony may rest easily at TL-3 with a few imported machines to ease harvests and ranching.

Under this blanket of Agriculture hides the Roulnoul Society of Psions, a sub-collegiate Psionic Institute that has a steady stream of students. Unlike the Collegia on Lodaeegzzuen, the Society does not have stringent criteria to attain to be tested and trained in a Stage of psionics. Yet, the Society does secretly share in the shame of gleaning its curriculum from the same texts and materials stolen from Ellee (Gzaefueg 3236) as Lodaeegzzuen. Roulnoul was fooled by the Corsairs who made copies of their stolen texts and exercises into believing they were being sold the originals. And like the Society, the Vargr agrarians sat on the purchase, letting psionics gather dust as it slowly came into vogue.

Interviewed students from Ksoegusnoeks and Charisma washouts from Lodaeegzzuen come to Roulnoul to complete a Stage of psionics education. The proximity of the two Psionic Institutes are the closest in Gzaefueg Sector and often students will try to attend both if Charisma allows. Per contract with its Owning world, Roulnoul must charge the same testing and training tuition as Lodaeegzzuen, even if the Collegia garners more prestige from the public in the know.
