History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Rhise had been long divided between warring factions intent on monopolising the world's scarce water resources. An especially nasty world war in the 1080s nearly included the use of weapons of mass destruction, and that trip to the brink of extinction was an epiphany for the locals. Over the course of the 12th century, the feuding governments have devolved their power to a new planetary council with complete authority over the military and the badly needed water.
