The Kursae are an extinct race who settled Charted Space with slow NAFAL generation ships around -200,000.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Very little is conclusively known about the Kursae. Some of leading research supports the idea that they were insectoids. Others vehemently disagree.

The Kursae settled a region more than 3,000pc across. It is generally believed that Kursae did this using NAFAL technology. That would make them a major interstellar power, despite the lack of a Jump Drive.

Point of Interest: The Kursae Mystery[edit]

Some of the great questions of our age involve the Kursae and many dedicated scientists from the Third Imperium are actively exploring these very mysteries:

  • How did they manage to colonize such a large sphere without one of the Ancient's heirs interfering?
  • How did the Kursae devolve so quickly, by astrographic standards, and lose their technology? Why?
  • What myths and knowledge do the Kursae have about what was once their space?
  • After losing their technology, why did they not die out as so many other species have?
  • If they truly colonized Charted Space, where are their remains? Why aren't we knee-deep in artifacts and ruins?

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

From an unidentified homeworld somewhere in now- Charted Space, these sophonts reached out and settled nearly five thousand worlds across half of settled space.

Over the next thousand centuries these many worlds of the Kursae all followed a common path: a downward spiral to a comfortable low technology level where they are today… sharing a common heritage of myths about their past.
