The Hursuuun of Dolberg (Trojan Reach 2113) are a Minor Non-Human Race with a non-humanoid appearance and technologically sophisticated sophonts.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Dolberg is one of the most stable planets in the Trojan Reach. It is officially classed as Government Type 9, Impersonal Bureaucracy, because there is no standard classification for ‘Governed by Giant Psychic Symbiotic Whales’. The human population of Dolberg are descended from the crew of a long range Second Imperium colony ship.

The indigenous population of Dolberg is the Hursuuun, the aforementioned giant psychic symbiotic whales, that lives deep down in the vast oceans. They are the rulers of the planet and speaks with the human population via telepathy. The Dolbergers leave all complex decision-making up to their bottom-dwelling giant psychic whale overlords. What career to pursue, what tasks to perform, who to marry, where to live – everything is decided in the lightless depths by alien whales, connected to the Dolberger by the echinoderm lining his or her lungs. The Dolbergers are not slaves or mind-controlled thralls, and are apparently capable of independent thought and action. They simply find it distasteful, and cannot see why everyone does not live as they do.

The Law Level on Dolberg is classification ‘D’, again because there is no official code for ‘the criminal code is determined by the incomprehensible whims of alien whales, and you will be torn to pieces by an angry mob if you break any of their equally incomprehensible taboos.’
