Shuakhuar is a moderate population pre-industrial hellworld, with over a hundred million, but not yet a billion sophonts struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants. Survivors often form intense survival skills and tend to be grim realists.
  • This world would like to become a major industrial powerhouse in the subsector, but lacks the population and resources to build an adequate workforce and industrial business sector.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Iiradu Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector in the Domain of Vland.
  • This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships.

Native Lifeform: Pulch[edit]

A favorite animal on the planet is the Pulch, a large dog-like creature, quite intelligent and able to learn some complex commands. The Pulch have been used extensively for combat, even been awarded decorations. The Pulch handler trade is a highly regarded and respected position. Planetary law forbids exporting these animals.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

During the Long Night this world was named Zuushgi.

The companies that operate on this world date back many hundreds of years. During the past these companies grew so large they maintained their own armies. Some companies overthrew local governments and fought wars with others. Currently, a companies history is its pride and a company's strength is its army. Shuakhaur's past is strewn with minor, but bloody, wars over limited natural resources. Some companies have allegiances with one or more of the world's governments. For the companies this allows recruiting both new employees and new army members.

Company generals are regarded are heroes. The soldiers are rewarded with prized and decorations, worn with pride. Decorations for valour are the most prized.

Shuakhaurns regard off-worlders with some suspicion and usually don't travel off-world. This is encouraged by the companies to restrict disruptive imports. Any merchants wanting to export goods are exceedingly well treated.
