Mainworld Geography & Topography[edit]

The terraces of Ipkur climb over the chains of hills and mountains as far as the eye can see. Linked to these terraces are an extensive network of irrigation channels and canals. The canals and terraces were required to capture the scarce fresh water rainfall, and designed to produce the largest volume of food in Imperial space.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ipkur rose from a barren, sterile world to a thriving, fruitful paradise in less than two hundred years thanks to one of the first advanced terraforming project in the core regions of the Imperium. Initiated in 802, it was a joint project between the University of Medurma, the IISS, the Ministry of Colonization, and Yansiir Biological Systems.

Ipkur lies within the habitable zone of the primary providing the planet with the basic environment to support life. The planet has a rich, and diverse, mineral base and a sufficient quantity of water to support life. Once the canals and terraces were started, there followed large scale introduction of plants, especially crops. There has been little in the way of animal life except certain pollinators required for the farmed crops.

The success of the project has paved the way for the Bolivar terraforming initiative and subsequent large scale terraforming projects in Bolivar Subsector.
