History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Iddamakur is an important, high-population industrial world located in Ultima Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium.

  • Iddamakur was used as a prison for ‘undesirables’ during Solomani rule. Different populations of dissidents were distributed among the planet's twelve small continents and numerous archipelagos; use of technology higher than TL 4 was forbidden, as was sea travel between groups. After the Solomani Rim War, the world was opened. Although many of the former inmates were dissident Solomani rather than racial minorities, the inhabitants are virulently opposed to the Solomani cause.
  • Iddamakur remains a poor world desperately in need of interstellar exchange in order to purchase advanced technology. Its main source of income is its newly-built A Starport, linking the somewhat more prosperous worlds of Basil (Solomani Rim 0207) and Darrukesh (Solomani Rim 0106) with the rest of the sector.

Other Data[edit]

Non-Canon: The Imperial strategy of building a Class A starport worked, and by 1117, Iddamakur had a tech level of 8, and was becoming a leading producer of inexpensive, basic consumer goods. The Second Solomani Rim War caused a change in production priorities to items to support the local Imperial war effort. Control of the system changed hands several times during the war, and the system was in Solomani hands at the time of the Collapse. Though not heavily damaged by Virus, with the markets for its products gone practically overnight, the world suffered a severe economic depression which led to political anarchy.

  • Today, Iddamakur (B779976-9) is balkanized, though the various factions cooperate on trade and defense issues. The last three years have seen a dramatic up turn in Iddamakur’s economic fortunes, as new products and new markets for these products (Darrukesh, and other independent "survivor" worlds in adjoining sectors) have opened up.
