Point of interest: Lii-rats[edit]

A Makhidkarun colony was re-established in -233 only to discover some escaped laboratory rats from the initial geneering program had evolved at a tremendous rate and carved them a niche at the top of the planetary food chain. Lii-rats are the size of Tkighir's and teeth adjusted for killing and shearing instead of gnawing. Their size (...up to 4 meters from nose to tail), ferocity, pack instinct, and feral intelligence make them extremely dangerous.

History and background[edit]

Liikirba was set up as a hunting reserve during the First Imperium for use by Makhidkarun executives. Extensive gene engineering of both local and imported livestock was apparently carried out prior to the Long Night to create the perfect (and safe) hunter's paradise. The Long Night meant abandoning the planet. IT is a popular place for game hunters on safari.

Carvings on the rock faces on the equatorial archipelago show that the planet was host to Gograhhah Reivers for at least part of the time.

A Makhidkarun colony was re-established in -233, then abandoned within a few years, apparently due to the Lii-rats.

Liikirba was a member of Kimalad Empire a psioniophobic pocket empire centered on Kimalad (Dagudashaag 1506) between -56 and 20. There never was a great human presence during the empire.

By 1100 Liikirba is home only to Makhidkarun safari staff who escort rich tourists from Vland and Core on their hunt for Lii-rat pelts.
