Native Sophont (NIL): Surogotan[edit]

It is the homeworld of the Xu’rokotani, a sophont species and minor race.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ancient Ziru Sirka and Rule of Man records uncovered on Gudina (Empty Quarter 0334) led Imperial Scouts to rediscover the Pikii in 27 Imperial. The IISS decided to rename their homeworld Surogota - the name the natives themselves used - and the native inhabitants as Surogotans in Anglic. Fearing that settlers would enslave or destroy the low-tech insectoid species, the IISS advised Emperor Cleon to interdict the world in 30 Imperial. Scout fears were eventually proven to be unfounded: most the fauna of the system is quite dangerous, rendering the world unsuitable for settlement. The interdiction order was finally lifted in 51 Imperial.

The large and sentient spiders of Surogota have an indecipherable belief system. Most of their non-materialistic thought is actually expressed in genetic manipulation techniques, and in specialized, altered wildlife that seem to have a religious, or at least a numinous function. The Vilani of the conformity-demanding First Imperium taught them various rituals that they still sometimes perform before powerful Imperial officials. Watching large eight-legged spiders conduct Ancestral Veneration rituals designed to be performed by bipedal humans is... bizarre. The best work on Surogotan beliefs is a series of Bwap scientific and sociological studies. Bwap Ritualists love order and see the universe organized much like a “Tree of Life”, which seems to map more closely to Surogotan beliefs (grounded in genetic science and biology) than either Vilani reverence for dead Ancestors and repeated Tradition, or Solomani reverence for a transcendent God-King and a text of Divine Laws. Bwap surgeons have been known to discuss Wapawab - the name of their godless religion - with the Surogotans on Charity (Empty Quarter 0830) for hours at a time. The Surogotans can’t seem to discuss their beliefs without referencing genetic structures, and nobody can figure out what these structures are supposed to represent. If the tightly-structured Bwap mind cannot change its foundational presuppositions, the Surogotans vision of the spiritual is essentially non-communicable to outsiders. There is no Rosetta Stone, no bridge of understanding that can link the Surogotan mind and the human (or Vargr, or Droyne, or...) mind on this issue.
