History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Tonopah, formerly known as Shikashu (Anglic: Shikashu), is a high-population Imperial garden world located on the Rim Main within Albadawi Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Originally an important Vilani world, Tonopah was settled after the Eighth Interstellar War by a mixed group of North American colonists, including a large contingent from the so-called “Mormon” religious sect, hoping to find a refuge from what they considered the increasingly secular society of Terra (Solomani Rim 1827).

During Long Night Tonopah was settled by a large number of Aslan Ihatei. Tonopah joined the new Dingir League around -1100, and the Church organization had effectively become the planetary government. Tonopah joined the Imperium but later embraced the Solomani Confederation until Imperial control was restored.

Today, Tonopah has reconciled itself to Imperial rule and the church hierarchy is back in charge. Pro-Solomani activism continues, but is usually peaceful. The primary conflict on the planet today is between the Human and Aslan populations.
