History and background[edit]

Irshe was once a major centre of commerce and had a population in excess of seven million sentients all living in floating cities. The major employer was SuSAG who had several chemical and biological manufacturing plants on the surface. Although many believed that SuSAG were involved in biological warfare there was no proof until in 443 an industrial accident caused by an earthquake released a deadly spore into the atmosphere.

It rapidly mutated killing thousands and severely crippling millions more. The entire planet had to be evacuated. SuSAG immediately closed down all their plants and removed them lock, stock and barrel to uninhabited planets in the system. An enquiry into the disaster chastised SuSAG for removing potential evidence from the scene before an independent investigation had been able to examine it but still returned a verdict of an industrial accident due to an Act of God. SuSAG donated (MCr:250) to the injured and relatives of the dead but refused to accept responsibility or admit that they had been manufacturing biological warfare agents.

Many relatives tried to sue but found themselves tied up in expensive litigation. Eventually all were dropped. Today the virus is still present in the atmosphere and still as virulent. Irshe remains uninhabited though seasonal workers do come to undersea camps to harvest food and water for the SuSAG bases in the system.
