- Vargr observation

The Crystal Wall of Knoellighz is an astrographic feature of a socio-economic nature.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The so-called Crystal Wall of Knoellighz Sector is a social barrier that is both racial and political whereupon Vargr become stymied in their dealings with the Zhodani Consulate.

  • Whether it is Starship, Starport, Startown, or Rural Encounters, this difference in mindset grinds the interaction to a halt until some common ground of interchange can be agreed upon. This is partially due to the standoffishness of the Zhodani who find the Vargr to be wild and chaotic.
  • In return, the Vargr of the Sector find the Zhodan to be robotic, lifeless, or 'crystallized'. Not all is lost to each as the Zhodani find they can more readily do business quick-and-dirty with the canine Uplifts. Likewise, the Zhodani are predictable and less inclined to haggle with Vargr merchants, accepting a price with fewer growls, snarls and baring of teeth.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Since the Zhodani Consulate fully backs its expansion into Knoellighz Sector, its borders reach a firm Rimward to Coreward in an almost uniform expansion.

  • This seemingly unified front presents the mental image to Vargr that there is both a social push and a wall-like border, slowly encroaching its frontier.
  • The Infinity League, Ascendancy Pact and Democracy of Greats grate themselves, in different ways and intensities, against the "Crystal Wall" of the Zhodani Consulate, probing for weaknesses testing the spacial border, emotional coolness, unified causality, and hive minded mindset that permeates the polity.
  • It is this unity when compared to the fractured and ever-changing polities of the Vargr in Knoellighz Sector that have some Emissaries working overtime.
