History and Background
Pramas is a garden world and home to over a million sophonts.
- Known throughout the Hegemony of Lorean as a refuge and melting pot for philosophers, religious prodigies and other enlightened individuals (even if the enlightenment is self-proclaimed).
- The Pramas Interfaith Council, based on a world constitution that promotes and protects individual religious freedoms, governs the population.
- Needless to say, Pramas also serves as a haven to political dissidents and to others that look for a place to hide under the guise of religious sanctuary.
The Legion of Breskain, a military organization created on Aala (Gashikan 0421) in -612 to fight the Vargr, sent a group of four thousand men and their families to the Vargr world of Kherriz in 364. A fleet of 35 starships, staffed mainly by steel-blue skinned and black-haired Yileans (the human minor race native to Gashikan), the Detachment promptly exterminated the 800,000 Vargr residents, renamed the system Pramas, and settled it themselves as a secret base of operations against the Vargr.
Much of the strategic direction of the War of Man (359-402) was handled from this world. The Legion base here repelled two major Vargr assaults in 401 and 415, but damage sustained in the second assault forced the Legion to withdraw, promising to ‘return to finish the job’. Numerous Vargr raids in 416-417 destroyed the remaining high-tech infrastructure.
The 897 arrival of a Baha’i group of missionaries on Pramas caused a spiritual evolution on Pramas. The integrity of the initial wave of missionaries is still held in high esteem, although the large wave of recent converts have necessarily involved a dilution of religious commitment. When extensive ‘liberty and conscience’ legislation was authorized by the Hegemon in 929, the Baha’i faith quickly grew: local believers accepted both human and nonhuman believers in their Study Circles. In addition to various houses of worship, the Baha’i have built four large temples on the world, at the ‘uttermost east, west, north and south’ to stress the unity of the world.
The changes the Baha’i have brought in have also made the world a magnet for all sorts of philosophies and religions, both mainstream and eccentric. As human-Vargr relations on the world grew more sympathetic, the genocidal ideology of the Order of One was increasingly unwelcomed by the citizens of Pramas. Initially, the Order’s wealth, political contacts and security forces seemed to make them unmovable. Even so, the increasing wealth and status of the Vargr gave them greater leverage in the high councils of the Hegemony. Eventually, with two notable groups - the planetary leadership of Pramas and the major interstellar Vargr packs - demanding action against the Order, the Hegemon was forced to expel the Order of One from Hegemony space in 949. Most of the Order willingly relocated to the Sangre (Empty Quarter 1816) system during the 950s: but certain splinter factions refused to budge, requiring a costly military action in 958.
