Zighagnagvaen is an agricultural world with an ideal environment for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. It supports a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system hosts a population between 100 thousand and 1 million. The world has a colony on Ronaeksourrgh (Knoellighz 1838). This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Ascendancy Pact in the Raelas Subsector of Knoellighz Sector.

  • This system hosts a Pact Naval Base for support of military starships.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The system has seven sizable Gas Giants, each with an orbital refinery, (TL 10), ready to serve vessels for pay. Additionally, a dense planetoid belt is swarmed daily by belter prospectors eager to find a rich deposit of viable meteoric iron and other heavy elements. Zighagnagvaen is nestled in Raelas Subsector with binary star of F9 V and M0 V classification and punctuated with a captured, far outer orbit White Dwarf with a declined and eccentric orbit track.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Zighagnagvaen (Knoellighz 1937) B765589-B Ag Ga Ni / Tp / C:1838 has Colonized and grown the populous and industrial Ronaeksourrgh (Knoellighz 1838).

Zighagnagvaen , as a Size 7 world is slightly smaller than Terra and holds its inhabitants and flora with a rated 0.9 gravity at the surface. Blessed with a Standard atmosphere and a comfortable 1.1 pressure, weather and the water cycle are ideal for the Garden world’s Agriculture of ranching and spice farming. The large oceans comprising the 51% hydrosphere of the mainworld are a studied issue by ecologists and environmentalists alike. The Temperate climate across the planet attracts visitors seasonally and enlivens the tourism industry here.

To serve as a model patron to Ronaeksourrgh, its Colony, Zighagnagvaen’s population of 900,000 Vargr has proudly put forth its Civil Service Bureaucracy with a Law Level of 9 to disarm its citizens and outbound colonists. Such commuting colonists are transported in huge freighters that are packed with food cargoes to the hungry, industrial planet. Thus a circuit of trade is healthy between the two worlds. However, as of 1105, this world is suffering a Cultural Difference evolving from its own past. Influenced by the mercantile powerhouse of Ronaeksourrgh, Zighagnagvaen is becoming Degenerate with pleasures of such industry lulling its populace into comforts of technology and a falling-off of need to produce such diversions locally. Trade ships eagerly post online their wares as soon as they jump into the system from its Colony world. As with the rest of the Ascendancy Pact, this world’s Representative takes a stand in the polity legislative body against Zhodani influences and meddling in Knoellighz Sector. This mindset continues to stoke the embers of the Quiet Wars between its neighbors.

Early in the growth of the Ascendancy Pact, colony planners ensured a peaceful settlement with a Naval Base local to Zighagnagvaen’s Highport and a new Naval Base on the surface of Ronaeksourrgh’s Downport. With a total of three such Bases in the local, Jump-1 cluster in this, Rimward and aging part of the Pact, interstellar security is higher than most worlds of the polity.

The Zighagnagvaen cluster, in direct competition with the UOSA Syndicate Privateers, tries to keep up with the new innovations issuing from their world, Uosa (Knoellighz 2237) and leading up to a trade cold war relationship. Economists are baffled as to where the Syndicate is producing such wondrous TL 15 products with only a TL 8 averaging and Industrial mainworld. However, since the space around UOSA is peaceful and clean of piracy, the Admiralty of the Ascendancy Pact Navy has no plausible cause to delve into the business of the tail-end of the polity. The Representatives and Magistrates of the Pact have their eyes and noses Coreward, leaving behind the issue in their wake.

Virus Era 1130s

Trade is disrupted in the Wilds thanks to the ravages of Virus and the frightening Vampire Fleets. Starship battles in the skies above Zighagnagvaen terrorize the peoples of the mainworld.

Empress Wave 1156

Though by this year, Psions and Wild Talents are few and have hidden themselves well, there is a small, quiet exodus Coreward as they attempt a shielded, Low Berth crossing of the Empress Wave. Quite a few, entire ship’s Psion Passengers whose precautions are sub-standard become temporary madhouses as they cross the Wave.
