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

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Kursae were a sophont people of an unknown type. They 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]

Many dedicated scientists from the Third Imperium are actively exploring mysteries of the Kursae:

  • How did they manage to colonize such a large sphere without one of the Ancient's heirs interfering?
  • How and why did the Kursae civilization die out so quickly (by astrographic standards)?
  • 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."


This race is primarily located in the following areas:
Charted Space (~1500 pc radius):
