History and background[edit]

It is home to a scattered nomadic people known as the Separationists. They move from oasis to oasis that dot the planet, seeking food and water. They trade small items with each other. Their exact origin is shrouded in mystery. They appear to be of mixed Slyean-Vilani descent, but the time of their arrival is unknown. Their language and culture is very distinct.

A small IISS team are now resident on the world, trying to unravel the mystery.
