Astrography and planetology[edit]

Kimalad is a member of the Kimalad cluster.

The jungle floor is home to the Ishupkura, a large grazing beast prized for its meat. Although Ishupkura can be raised on other worlds, those raised in the natural wilderness of Kimalad have a superior taste and texture.

History and background[edit]

Kimalad was a jungle planet until its colonization in -3205 by the Vilani. It was heavily mined using open cast tech methods. Vast stretches of the planet were ripped open to allow the money-hungry humans to rape its mineral wealth. Then the Long Night caused man to leave Kimalad alone. Slowly the planet recovered and the jungles covered the planet once more though the deep scars of man’s earlier occupation were still unable to support life.

Then in -231 Humaniti returned, not to plunder but to live in harmony. Settlements were built on the immense flat-topped mesas. Multi-tiered buildings of infinite hue covered the mounds as the population increased but the inhabitants refused to allow expansion to extend down to the jungle floor. Instead they built upwards forming cities of hundreds of levels, lying precariously upon each other. Monorails link the cities together.

Milieu 0[edit]

Kimalad is the center and power base of the Kimalad Collective a pocket empire which extends from Nipe [now Shidu (Dagudashaag 1406)] to Armiirk [now Liikirba (Dagudashaag 1705)], also encompassing Uumin Duu [now Bastion (Dagudashaag 1507)], Nuunzaaind [now Aam (Dagudashaag 1604)], and Imar [now Daridura (Dagudashaag 1605)]. The emperor, Jyond Quasot, is a master of manipulation. He has turned his subjects into rabid psionphobes with his stories of Guukian spies within his empire. He has used this fear of psionics in order to consolidate his power and eliminate his enemies. He is currently riding the tidal wave of public psioniophobia to war with the neighboring Guukian Federation.

Milieu: 1116[edit]

Kimalad is a major centre for trade and commerce within the subsector and it is claimed that its markets can supply anything you have ever dreamt of.
