Goertel is a rich, pre-agricultural world with a moderate population over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in size.

  • The world's agricultural industry is growing and some economists forecast an explosion in this world's agribusiness in the near future as new agro-technology and a more capable labor force are imported.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • This world has high-grade living conditions with a good climate and a non-harmful environment. As such, this world is much sought after with large queues for immigration here.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Goertel Subsector of Trojan Reach Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Goertel is a rich, non-aligned world located in the Goertel Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

Goertel was originally settled by exiles from the First Imperium, but came under the control of Solomani during the Rule of Man. During the Sindalian Empire period Goertel was the headquarters of the Sindalian fleet and the subsector capital. Following the fall of the Empire, control of the planet was assumed by the Church of Nom, a messianic cult that actively encouraged psionics and discouraged space travel of any kind.

Goertel was conquered by the Glorious Empire in 556 and the Church of Nom was forced underground, with some priests fleeing to Delta Theta (Trojan Reach 1220) with several antique Sindalian warships. Aslan Hierate attacks on neighboring worlds distracted the Glorious Empire, allowing an uprising on Goertal to overthrow Aslan rule.
