History and background
Irphothe has become the low-tech retreat for the discontented in the subsector. Originally colonized by the Vilani in the early years of the Ziru Sirka, Irphothe attracted those who had their fill of the hurly-burly of the growing empire. The world was only marginally habitable even at the time of the first explorations but now the fragile biosphere is beginning to collapse under the steady population increase. The vast seas have become the low-cost dumping grounds for many of the large corporations of the region. The pollution Is now reaching critical levels.d
Local Population: Dolphins
Irphothe is now home to a significant population of Dolphins, one of the furthest known coreward enclaves. Backed by wealthy concerns rimward (it is even rumored that Solomani money is involved) the Dolphins have bought the commercial exploitation rights to the seas in an attempt to halt the environmental damage. This has involved restricting access to many areas and banning dumping. This has led to a number at clashes between Irphothe residents (who on the whole support the Dolphins) and some starship captains who have attempted to circumvent the new proactive environmental laws and discharge their illegal cargoes.
