Native Lifeforms[edit]

Githiaski's seas teem with life, but forms analogous to vertebrates have never appeared; rather the dominant phylum has developed a supportive inner "cage" of gristle-like material. The Githiaskio's ancestors may have resembled those Terran marine worms which bury themselves in the seabed, leaving only a bundle of tentacles exposed; their closer relatives were certainly squid-like in external form.

Native Sophont (NIL): Githiaskio[edit]

This world is notable as the homeworld of the Githiaskio, an aquatic Minor Race with a startling resemblance to Terran marine mollusks.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

A high population world in the Dartho Subsector of the Antares Sector.

Githiaski (Anta 2406) is a mineral-poor world on the fringe of the Lesser Rift; the First Imperium seems to have paid little attention to the world, for the intelligent inhabitants were only recently discovered by a merchant ship during the Long Night. Their name for their planet can best be represented as Llaaaiihoin (with a heavy vibrato on the first syllable, and a high pitch on the last). As the world has few, small continents mostly consisting of salt marshes and swamps, regular contact with the Githiaskio came only with the rise of the Third Imperium. As scientific study focussed on the race, their curious evolutionary history came to light.

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

Githiaski, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Githiaski has a Class A Starport, an excellent quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and other kinds of repair, and construction of both starships and non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.

World Population (P)[edit]

This world has a population of 1,000,000,000 to 9,999,999,999 sophonts (billions).

World Demographics[edit]

Humaniti, population 95%

  • Other, population 5%

World Government (G)[edit]

Githiaski is governed by a Civil Service Bureaucracy. The leadership of the government is another form (democracy, dictatorship, oligarchy), but the bureaucracy leadership influences policy. The government leadership may select the bureaucracy leadership, but not its membership. Usually the governmental leadership is divided, or incapable of setting policy and the bureaucracy provides a stabilizing influence. The bureaucracy may be the full government bureaucracy or a section with limited jurisdiction but considerable influence like the military.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

This world has a moderate level with laws covering many areas of government and interaction. These laws are simple enough that most people can act as their own advocate, though for serious issues a professional is recommended. Law enforcement officials will be present, but not in great numbers. All firearms except shotguns, and anything more destructive, are typically regulated or prohibited.
