Daskine has a tainted unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Laraa Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Daskine, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Daskine is a large world orbiting a huge yellow giant star. Most of its surface is arid desert and rugged badlands, although there are a number of small seas and lakes in the southern hemisphere. The land around each city is heavily cultivated and crossed by a network of canals. The most common forms of transport on the world are watercraft, although vehicles drawn by draft-animals are also common.

History and background[edit]

There are five major cities on Daskine, each lying on the shores of one of the major lakes. The entire population of Daskine are members of the Simplist Movement.

Purity, the largest and most cosmopolitan of the cities, is the the site of the starport. Although Purity's inhabitants tolerate offworlders they are still uncomfortable around advanced technology and will do their best to avoid it. In recent years Purity has seen an increase in tourism, although the number of visitors are still small.

All of the other cities follow stricter philosophies and are much less tolerant.
