Keshga is a garden world with an environment conductive to most sophonts. The system has a population between 10,000 and 100,000, lacking the population to be an agricultural supplier. This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Zeda Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Keshga, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members 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 Zagunaa.

Mainworld Data[edit]

Apart from its low gravity, Keshga is otherwise a Terran prime world and would have been developed for greater agricultural use except many off-world grains and fruiting plants grow poorly or fail outright. The Keshg are reluctant to research the matter since they believe the outcome would result in loss of the rich native life and impact their profitable perfume industry.

Point of Interest: Keshga Naval Base[edit]

A small naval base is maintained on Keshga's tiny moon but retains a wide exclusion zone around it, reaching almost to Keshga itself. Rumors abound as to the purpose of the secretive base since its crew are not permitted visit the world.

History and background[edit]

During the First Imperium this world served as an AAB branch.

Many of the remaining industries on Keshga are based upon providing high quality foodstuffs and drinks for the inhabitants to indulge their refined taste and smell. These wares are almost as widely appreciated and distributed as the Perfection perfumes.

Zirunkariish maintains offices on Keshga.

World Demographics[edit]

The 70,000 inhabitants of Keshga have acquired a genetic predilection for an enhanced and refined sense of smell. This has allowed them to develop Perfection – one of the major scent and perfume houses in the sector. The output of this firm is mostly based upon extracts from the native flora and fauna. Perfection is extremely profitable and employs nearly half the populace directly or indirectly.
