History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

A non-industrial worlds in the Apge Subsector of the Core Sector.

In 758, known as Daa during the Ziru Sirka, negligence on the part of the population of the Myteria-Seru undersea arcology caused it to be completely flooded during a seismic disturbance, killing all of the 1.5 million inhabitants. The government decided that to prevent such a disaster from ever occurring again, it must carefully control all facets of life in the arcologies - a philosophy which the present-day government continues to promote.
