History and background[edit]

The history of Adakhem is one of a rich Lanthanum strike back in the First Imperium. Then the Long Night struck and the miners found themselves stranded. Slowly they adapted to their new home and when the Aakhri Empire conquered them they had reverted to a tribal TL–1 culture. They were enslaved and brutally exploited. With the collapse of the Empire the Adakhemians placed severe restrictions on visitors to the planet. In 587 the deep lanthanum mines were rediscovered but the Adakhemians refused to allow exploitation.

In 807, all contact with Adakhem stopped and visitors to the planet discovered only the dead bodies of the weak and elderly. Of the younger tribesmen nothing is known. The current theory is that the original settlers had been dying out due to inbreeding and the younger tribesmen decided to journey into the mountain regions to search for other tribes. Extensive searches have revealed no clues to account for their sudden disappearance.

In 1036 the planet was sold to SuSAG who are currently strip-mining the lanthanum.
