History and background[edit]

Dudin is one of the major population centers of the Amec Trade Protectorate. The entire planet is encircled by a chain of space stations linked together by solar generator, tunnels, and mono-filament. The planetary rulers live in this orbital habitat. On the planet, most live beneath the shallow seas in crowed manufacturing enclaves spread over the ocean bead. The majority of the population are Ntu tribesman.

Starting in 1110 and over the next five years in excess of five thousand individuals have suddenly and mysteriously combusted for no known reason. Even outsiders have been subjected to the phenomenon which seems to favor young males. The current theory favors the cause to be self-induced through an untraceable drug. The Nauhyotl (planetary governor) has promised all efforts are made to resolve this strange and disturbing event.
