History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Tukera family maintains a villa on the island of Lurka as well as dockside and cargo rights for regular route cargo and liner visits to Roup. Roup's citizens practice aquaculture on a planetary scale, with whole oceans sectioned off using bubblenets to maximize productivity.

Even though a class C starport Roup High does exist. Its a mishmash of Tech Level 7 space station with no spin and no anti-g so zero-G, with rudimentary facilities acting more as a shuttle dock than anything else. It is sometimes referred to as RVP1, Roup Vanity Project 1.

Real food (as opposed to the local concentrates made from fish) is highly prized by the population.

The Imperium maintains a small regimental size formation of the 1073rd White Horse armored cavalry. The unit is housed on the Nishkin Atoll which is near the equator but distant from inhabited zones which allow for uninhibited training and live ordnance usage. The White Horse operates a premier jungle warfare training school and a SERE School which is feared by the air crews and scout crews which are sent here for the dreaded Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape course.
