The Luupinites are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This race are thick, furred, bipedal primitives descended from omnivore/hunter stock. The natives of Luupim are reasonably intelligent, but unsophisticated. Technology (in a few isolated regions where development has proceeded faster than the planetary norm) has peaked at TL–3. There are no large cities; most of the native population of 600 million live in rural areas or small towns. Their government is chaotic at best, most readily describable as a loose feudalism; there is no unified government structure, and most individual towns or regions fend for themselves, receiving neither help nor hindrance from their neighbors.

The natives have not evidenced even the slightest degree of hostility or aggression among themselves, and seem fairly peaceful. Some disputes have occasionally led to small-scale conflicts between towns, but these are limited in scope and violence. Of course, from a K'kree point of view, the people of the world are dangerous because of their willingness to consume animal flesh. Most alarming to the Steppelords is the fact that the sport of hunting is a particularly popular one, and K'kree scientists assigned to study the world have frequently reported with disgust on the relish and skill with which these predatory locals hunt down and kill animals of all kinds.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Luupim (Kaa G!'kul 2828) was discovered by the K'kree many centuries ago, and studied until it was established that the inhabitants – thick, furred, bipedal primitives descended from omnivore/hunter stock – fell into the category of non-K'kree races that ate both plant and animal foodstuffs, and thus might be persuaded to adopt a civilized vegetarian existence. The planet was interdicted as a result, so as to ensure the safety of K'kree travellers, and, at the same time, keep the natives out of reach of technology until a decision regarding their fate should be reached at Kirur. As is often the case, time, distance and other commitments have conspired to keep the decision from being made. There is no great need for precipitate action, anyway, as the natives are far from achieving any form of unification of technological prowess which could make them a threat to the forces of a Xi Rrikeek Tuughit'ra, should it become necessary to declare one. The interdiction patrol monitors planetary development, and can advise if local changes make an immediate decision mandatory at any time.
