Ishadar is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and both non-agricultural and preindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • The worldlets are, for the most part, unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • These worldlets are working towards being an industrial world but lack an adequate workforce to do so.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Ultima Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector in the Domain of Sol.
  • This world was colonized by and is controlled from Azun (world).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ishadar is a non-agricultural asteroid belt located in Ultima Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Ishadar, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

Historical Data[edit]

Ishadar was settled by refugees from Azun (Solomani Rim 0809) about -900. Today, the Ishadar Belt includes 14 major asteroid colonies and countless minor settlements. Each major settlement in Ishadar system is self-governing, behaving much like an independent city-state. While the Ishadaran states lack advanced technology, but the standard of living in most settlements is reasonable.
