History and background[edit]

Originally established as a mining community, the Tilmen are known primarily for their xenophobic traditions. All visitors to the planet must keep their mouth covered when in the presence of Tilmen and must not speak. The Tilmen themselves are prohibited from speaking to off-worlders and all contact must take place only in writing. Those who fail to follow these laws will find themselves facing an obligatory month of ritual cleansing
