Akhashmaas is a garden world with an environment conductive to most sophonts. The system has a population between 10,000 and 100,000, lacking the population to be an agricultural supplier. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Kuriishe Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Akhashmaas, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Uushkhaa.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Akhashmaas is a member of the Daad Cluster.

The world is the first satellite of the double ringed small gas giant Aakaii, the second planet of the star system. There are a further two gas giants further out from the Aaakaii. The only other notable astrographic feature is a small rocky planet in the inner orbit, a baked, barren world with little to recommend it to the traveller.

Akhashmaas is some 150 million kilometres out from the G1 V star, but is surprisingly earth-like. The sky is dominated by Aakaii, visible even in the daylight. Perhaps the only reason that this planet has not been settled extensively (only having a population of 45,000) is that the atmospheric pressure is twice Terran normal.

History and background[edit]

Despite abundant natural resources it wasn’t heavily exploited, probably as a result of the easier profits to be made investing in the previously settled systems in the cluster, or on the Sylean Main. The first serious investment came during the Second Imperium, when a mining facility was built to support limited operations in the two asteroid belts which dominate the second and third orbits out. However, extensive operations were never developed, and the facility was closed down some hundred years before the onset of the Long Night.

Originally designated Station Seven by the Imperium to enable them to covertly spy on the Kuriishe Eraki, the planet was abandoned by 40.

Initial surveys by the IISS showed that the two belts had limited deposits of some rare earth materials, and a colonisation programme was instigated during the late 200s.

Akhashmaas was subsequently settled by a team lead by a retired Vilani scout under an Imperial Charter, who named the world after one of the legendary heroes who fought against the Ancient’s war machines on Vland. Following many years of service, Irka Laparkikumiin was looking for a world to settle down away from the pressures of the Imperial expansion, and the almost constant warfare of the early Third Imperium.
