Rroekhsuek is a water world with 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean, and a short-sleeve breathable atmosphere. The system has a population in the millions of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. The world has a colony on Azgol (Knoellighz 1912). The world has a colony on Ksee (Knoellighz 2317). The world has a colony on Ouollou (Knoellighz 2211). It is a Vargr dominated Non-Aligned world in the Oguegh Subsector of Knoellighz Sector.

  • This system hosts a Naval Base for support of military starships.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Rroekhsuek (Knoellighz 2414) A78A650-D Ht Ni Ri Wa is to be found in Oguegh Subsector and is a member of the Democracy of Greats.

Slightly smaller than Terra with a surface gravity of 0.9. This gravity battles against the atmospheric pressure and yet balances the underwater pressures enough to allow undersea crust mining by submarines, submersibles, and robotic mining drones modified for oceans. All other mining occurs in the four varied planetoid belts in the solar system inside the three Gas Giants and surrounding Rroeksuek as fragmented and distributed in the inner planets orbits ranges.

Dense atmosphere with a sea level pressure of 1.6 and requires no gear to breathe though many would prefer the contra gravity port located in the upper troposphere until acclimated to the pressure on the many stationary platforms of the world’s shallows.

Rroeksuek is a non-Great, singular mainworld chosen for its lack of a main and its neutrality as such.

A Water (Wa) world, one of five in Oguegh Subsector, with frozen ice caps, wandering icebergs, Rroeksuek is 100% covered by oceanic water with a slightly lower salinity easing the need for desalination for potable water the population. With such water abundance, the system Gas Giants, the local government has yet to tax wilderness refueling. Waterborne sports are a favorite, such as big fishing, speed boating, submarine regattas, and aerial race courses with speed being a favorite characteristic.

Rroeksuek is happily selected the newest, agreed-upon meeting world of the Greats every seven years in system-wide events and pageantry. Traffic increases five times its usual amount and system traffic control is franticly trying to upgrade its communications network for the events.

With three million Vargr of the Democracy of Greats harvesting ocean borne resources, the cuisine quickly inures visitors to seafood and sea flora diet. The meeting of the Greats every seven years swells the planetary hotels, surface and gravitic, to bursting as Greats, their charismatic entourage, military admirals, emissaries, corporate executives and of course news media of all types. Population on Rroeksuek inflates to 10 million, requiring surface ships, gravitic flyers and even submarine liners to house the grand convocation. Many find purchase in the orbital, A-rated Highport for health or age reasons. Many passenger liners of aerospace and system venues advertise intensely for their services at these events.

The selection of Rroeksuek as a central, meeting point for the Charismatic Greats has prompted the planetary Feudal Technocracy to spend much of the tourism to this world on Downport platform expansion, Highport upgrades and other docking satellites and the Naval Base also in orbit.

Ruled by a set of resource Guilds, tourism Guilds, technology Guilds, pharmacology Guilds, it can be said that these special interest groups must come together to keep the local economy in balance with incoming and outgoing trade often leading to disagreements, labor and management strikes and Infighting to settle disputes. Longer disputes are locally termed Guild Wars and rarely leave the atmosphere of Rroeksuek. This is generally cleaned up every seven years when the fleets of the Charismatic Greats arrive in-system. Vargr corporations court this world for space before, during and after each gathering of the Greats, keeping the millstone of economy grinding in near-decade waves.

Rroeksuek competes with Gziriggurkhosrus (Knoellighz 1919) over being named the subsector Capital. Though it has a triad of three successful colonies, Azgol, Ouollou and Ksee (Knoellighz 1912, 2211 and 2317 respectively), Rroeksuek is passed over due to its new fame as the newest meeting ground of the Charismatic Greats every seven years. This seems to satisfy the Guilds here frequently enough to keep the world from true Balkanization.
