Ghothu is a rich and agricultural production world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system supports a population in the millions of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Julian Protectorate in the Flange Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Hegemony of Lorean. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr. Less than 10% of the world's population is the Minor Race Bwap.

History and Background[edit]

A rather isolated world, Ghothu’s original population was wiped out - both human and Suedzuk Vargr - in a worldwide thermonuclear/bioplague war. Recently, it has been repopulated by both the human and Suedzuk Vargr population of Flange/Flange (Empty Quarter 2009), as a reward to the kinda-loyal Flange population by the Hegemony of Lorean (which rarely allows most Suedzuk to even leave their homeworlds, never mind settle new worlds). The new settlers are busy working to plant towns, piece together the tragic story of the dead cultures, and neutralize what remains of the plagues and the radioactivity. The new starport was an occasion for celebration, returning the world to the interstellar community, but the more difficult task of healing the wounded ecosystems still remains.
