Kaelm'katwi has both an unbreathably thin atmosphere and a lack of surface water making habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Kaelm'katwi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships. During the Long Night this world was named Iirir.

History and background[edit]

Kaalm'katwi is one of the larger Imperial naval bases in the subsector. The military facilities in the system are massive, and serve as a kind of mini-depot. Their purpose is to provide an ongoing show of military power to the Ziadd of the region, who tend to respect displays of strength.

For some periods the starport is closed to all but military traffic. All civilian craft are directed to the small class F spaceport located on Shelwa, the world's moon. The facilities there are bearable, being equivalent to an average quality class D port. Large commercial transports generally get priority, and smaller vessels may find themselves in holding orbits for days at a time.

Surplus military equipment is occasionally sold off by the military.
