The Mirani are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Mirani are the aboriginal natives of the Miraynian Outback are derived from a hexapodal, omnivore/hunter stock which evolved first in the swamps and marshes. The Mirani call themselves Raynirjik, which translates as "Lords of the Golden Walls". Offworlders derogatory refer to them as Gogs.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It is theorized that glacial periods changed the climate and ecology of the planet, forcing the development of intelligence as the natives adapted to new conditions. The last ice age on Mirayn ended around -4,200. During that last period of cooler, drier weather, the natives achieved a TL–3 civilization. Unfortunately, the return of Mirayn's normal climate conditions (...coupled, possibly, with some other disaster hinted at in native traditions) caused the collapse of culture, leaving ruins amid the swamps and jungles that returned with the new wave of warmth.

Reduced to savagery, the natives have had no incentive to revive their society, and thus have made little progress back towards a civlized culture. The contemporary natives are TL–0 savages, little regarded by offworlders and often referred to derogatorily as "gogs". They band together in small tribes of perhaps 50 to 100 individuals. Though most encountered have been friendly or too frightened for contact, natives do carry a variety of primitive weapons (...spears and clubs predominate), and have been known to fight one another. Offworld tools and simple weapons (blades, in particular) are sometimes found, usually as prized possessions of tribal chiefs, received as trade goods from offworlders.


All native tribes speak a generally similar language, and are acquainted with a sort of pidgin tongue used by them for intertribal communication. The natives currently retain no written language, but oral record-keeping (...by legends and traditions) is quite common.
