Rrev Rigr is a non-agricultural and nonindustrial vacuum world, which warrants hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It has few prospects for economic development.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Khouth Subsector of Corridor Sector in the Domain of Vland.
  • During the Long Night this world was named Dirge Iim.
  • About 60% of the population is composed of Vargr.
  • About 40% of the population is composed of baseline humans and other non-human sophonts.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Never underestimate another sentient race in its capacity for a sense of humor. Rrev Rigr is apparently Gvegh Vargr for "I've got sand in my shorts." In Aekhu Vargr it means pretty much the same thing except that a certain black mineral replaces the word "sand", and isn't a very flattering term. No matter that, the world was a fairly prosperous mining world that exported the metal ores necessary for lightweight ferroalloys.

The population was a mixed human-Vargr one, ruled by a Vargr constitutional monarchy.

  • The world rated a 9 on the Tetusu-Dene scale, one of the highest in Imperial space, and race relations were placid.

Era: Rebellion[edit]

After the Dzarrgh Federate took over the world in 1116, some of its representatives quickly found disapproval with this unwarranted peace. This took the form of racist demagoguery on the part of the Church of the Chosen Ones, aimed at riling up the local Vargr against their human neighbors. To their credit they resisted this hectoring, and in some cases attacked COTCO priests and missionaries. This violence was not well taken by the Federate governor, who began a campaign of species cleansing, confiscating property from the human population and deporting them to the Domain of Deneb. A significant portion of the Vargr population left in protest and solidarity, and their descendants continue to live in joint communities in Namidshur Subsector.
