History and background
In the year 868 the Brotherhood of Chalmatchi monks were called to cease their great journey and build a monastery on this hitherto unnamed planet. For 100 years the monastery flourished, producing handmade space suits, spaceships, and high-tech hand-to-hand weapons of the highest quality. These items were viewed by travelers as blessed, and much of the equipment is still in use today, a tribute to the quality of their workmanship.
For simple economic reasons in 1000 the monastery all but failed. There are still a handful of monks who keep their flame burning and gladly share what little they have with passing travellers. Many of their arts have not been lost and will still do special orders for vacc-suits, PLSS's, weapons, etc.
