Thaeirrgkues has an exotic, corrosive, or insidious atmosphere with a small percentage of liquid, but not water, on the surface. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. The governance of this world is from Uorangeng (Knoellighz 1820). It is a Vargr dominated Non-Aligned world in the Engakhs Subsector of Knoellighz Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Thaeirrgkues (Knoellighz 1620) B8B1460-A Fl Ni / C: 1820, pronounced best by Human mouths as (Thigh,EAR,cues) is a source world for various industrial chemicals and combustion fossil fuels. The resources are being extracted by specialized teams of corporate colonists from Uorangeng / Oguegh (Knoellighz 1820). The resources from this system are harvested here then shipped from Engakhs Subsector to the Owning world for sale as packaged raw resources for the rest of the stellar cluster. Many crude fossil fuels see purchase then refining for use in lower technology worlds.

Ninety-thousand Vargr employees conduct extraction operations in waves corresponding to the lightest seasonal weather and climate for a given continent. When weather and the atmosphere become corrosive to the point of near-insidious, the operation then lifts to the orbital Highport for containment and preparation for delivery to Uorangeng. The entire population works under corporate-colony government though there is little reason to break laws due to the raw nature of the resources. Smuggling of tar sludges, dangerous acids, base ores, crude oil, coal, noble gases and many other low-value, unrefined gatherings give little incentive to smuggling or other illicit activities. Pay is low to middling for workers here, but is still preferable to endless fishing on Uorangeng. Many citizens are here because they like hard ground as opposed to the Water world from which they came. Similar gravity has allowed many employees to cycle back and forth between Thaeirrgkues and Uorangeng in terms of corporate service. Thaeirrgkues relies on import trade to support the local employees. This is regulated by the colonial, corporate entity that delivers yields from Uorangeng and other worlds of the non-aligned, Jump-1 arm of the stellar cluster. Trade with the nearby Democracy of Greats funnels first through the controlling world per what is viewed as a dusty trade treaty with the cluster. With many of the cluster worlds falling between TL 3 and TL 7, there is a constant demand for fossil fuels of all types.

The Highport, being mainly focused on logistics, can barely service visiting trader vessels though it boasts a B-rating. Many freighters taking deliveries are unstreamlined hulls and bulk haulers. There is little draw to this world other than as a Gas Giant, wilderness refueling depot. A side industry of fuel skimming, refining and sale to the larger vessels has developed alongside the Highport station. This cuts down on transit times and keeps the resources flowing from Thaeirrgkues.
