Lhshami is a preindustrial, agricultural world.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Lhshami is a Non-Aligned agricultural world located in Caledon Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector.

Like Tsanesi (Reaver's Deep 1711), Lhshami is home to a sophont race.

  • Lhshana are small (1.2 meters in height), trilaterally-symmetrical, intelligent sophonts with tentacular appendages over each of their three legs.
  • They are generally passive, contemplative, and rather fatalistic in nature.
  • One of their best known exports are touchstone sculptures.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Unlike the Yn-tsai of Tsanesi, however, the Lhshana people are definitely native to the world, and their evolution and history can be traced with some confidence.

The pre-civilized ancestors of Lhshana the were enslaved by the Saie (and much of what we know about that race is derived from oral traditions of the Lhshana, distorted over the centuries into a body of folklore and mythology). They received a considerable boost in civilization thanks to Saie technology, and also absorbed knowledge from Reaver spacecraft which visited the world during the Long Night. When first contacted by Caledonian merchants, the Lhshana had a flourishing tech level 9 civilization, though they had no knowledge of (and little interest in) space flight.
