Cunnonic is an agricultural and garden world with an ideal environment for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. It supports a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system hosts a population between 100 thousand and 10 million sophonts. It is a member of Darrian Confederation in the Darrian Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. Less than 10% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan. 90% of the world's population is the Minor Human Race Daryen.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Cunnonic is a member of the Spinward Main.

Cunnonic's climate is cool but tolerable. Its many volcanoes are violently active on the average of at least once a year and cause earthquakes and tsunamis. By far the biggest obstacle to colonization was the presence of hostile native life. Large predators of several types ranged the one large continent, and poisonous trappers were common in the archipelagos. Much smaller herbivores ruined many crops before effective deterrents for them were found. All in all, a very Earth like planet for a people who had lived on a tame planet like Darrian to conquer.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

One of the less hospitable worlds which Darrian settlers colonized. Perhaps because so many of the colonists were Solomani (who were used to such worlds), the planet's government split into eight factions. A higher tech level would be possible if these various factions would cooperate (especially on their starport), but that seems unlikely. Fortunately, these various groups rarely resort to outright warfare to settle their differences.[2]
