Asimidiske has complete lack of both an atmosphere and any surface water. The system has a population between 10 million and a billion sophonts, with a self supporting industrial base. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Zeda Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Amec Trade Protectorate and the Domain of Vland. Asimidiske, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the feifdom of a marquis. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This is the homeworld to Calipha, a Minor Race. During the Long Night this world was named Miirnishuu. The Nahuatl name of the world is Chalchihuitl.

Native Sophont: Calipha[edit]

In 304 the semi-intelligent Calipha were discovered three kilometers down in Cuauhtemoc atmosphere. Due to extreme difficulties in establishing contact within a gas giant atmosphere several research bases were set up in mined out craters on the moons surface. Several large research stations dedicated to studying the Calipha, funded by non-Protectorate academic foundations.

History and background[edit]

Today the planet has a population in excess of 90 million, mostly the descendants of miners. Both House of Yeipanitl and House of Xiumac maintain large refinery platforms on planet as well as extensive mining facilities. Together they almost rival House of Aymara which manages the largest Chalchihuitl mining facilities in the Protectorate. Asimidiske is home to Tlatocan University. It was during the excavations to build research centers that the construction teams discovered Asimidiske had massive deposits of Chalchihuitl. The discovery prompted a massive influx of miners.
