This system serves as the capital for the subsector. This world designated as an Amber Zone.

It is a member of Third Imperium in the Argi Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland.

History and background[edit]

This world was been extensively colonized with vast underground city complexes (known as Pellucidar). Argi is the largest manufacturer of technical equipment within the sector.

Historical Data[edit]

Aakhri Empire: The planet was originally colonized by Vilani nobles during the First Imperium and retained much of their technology during the Long Night. This evolved into the Aakhri Empire which perverted the Vilani caste system into a slave based republic.

The Empire used its technology to enslave much of Argi and Sapphyre subsectors. Over the centuries they became dependent on their slaves for every aspect of their life, including military service. At the time of their collapse the planetary population was composed mainly of slaves ruled over by a small, decadent master class. The revolt when it occurred was quick and bloody. The surviving Aakhri families were forbidden to ever again hold property or position.

Most Argians are descendants of the freed slaves and the few remaining Aakhrians are only to be found in menial positions or acting as “Servicians” - prostitutes. Aakhrians can only leave Argi if they supply a MCr1 bond to “re-pay” the Argian people for their historical suffering. Most Argians (except Aakhrians) wear silver torcs encoded with their clan, occupation and status using an eight band colour code, as a reminder of their origins.
