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 an excellent quality starport.

  • A Class A Starport Facility has very well developed shipyards and is capable of producing first rate starships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Sometimes multiple ports of each type.

World Population (P)[edit]

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