History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

O'Keefe is a non-industrial Imperial world located in the Gazulin Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

The sea levels of O'Keefe rose several meters in the past and are slowly receding, leaving behind thousands of square kilometers of stagnant, muddy, worm-ridden bog land.

  • Structures are built on tall stilts and the natives navigate the many shallow streams on flat-bottomed boats and rafts.
  • The planet supports few large settlements, and the largest is Stiltown, surrounding the small spaceport.

O’Keefe produce some useful fungi and a sweet-smelling moss used in luxury cosmetics.

  • These items are gathered by the poor inhabitants and dried in long smokehouses before being sold through Stiltown.
  • The chief threat to both this industry and the fensmen are the worms of O’Keefe, which grow up to six meters long and sometimes attack humans.
