Misir has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Old Suns Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Misir, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Iidkhe.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Misir is a member of the Shegimuud Trace.

Despite its very thin atmosphere, Misir is a pleasantly warm world with a variety of native species. Running approximately along the equator is a huge canyon, in places almost a kilometre deep. Because it is below sea level (significantly lower in fact) the air pressure is sufficiently high enough to make it breathable for short periods. The Vilani fusion-tunnelled a city, now called Sheerdrop, into the cliff-face overlooking the floor of the canyon. It has been enlarged and deepened over the centuries and now accommodates nine million individuals.

The canyon supports a complicated and luxuriant ecosystem, including a number of large and agile predators. Misiri hunting trips have become very popular in recent years.

History and background[edit]

The world is strongly Vilani in culture and flavour and retains more links with Vland Sector than it does with the rest of Dagudashaag Sector.
