This is the homeworld to Souggvuez, a Minor Race. They are 20% of the worlds population. 80% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr.

World Government[edit]

Early History[edit]

The Souggvuez ran their own affairs as an isolated world until -300. Thereafter, there was contact with Vargr Corsairs, Traders and Culture. By 100, Talon was Capital of a small Vargr state, the Ksekgizoksdhaerzluenoe, in Million Subsector[2]. By 210 this state had partially dissolved[3], but Talon was still able to maintain political unity with neighbouring Unekh (Deneb 2603) and Fosfog (Deneb 2702). The Vargr Campaigns broke up this state[4] and the world proceeded independently, but as part of the Aekhu Vargr culture, until the United Followers of Augurgh were formed.

1090s to 1140s[edit]

With 2 billion inhabitants, Talon is the most populated world in the subsector and is the most important world in the subsector of a small Vargr-controlled federation of worlds called the United Followers of Augurgh whose capital is at Augurgh (Tuglikki 3037).

After 1143[edit]

The collapse of the United Followers of Augurgh at the hands of Virus sees the world as an independent polity struggling for survival in a very hostile environment. It was subject to attacks and basing by the Red Pelts in the later-1140s.

World Economy[edit]

World Demographics[edit]

Rebellion[edit]

Over 99.999% of all Souggvuez died during the fall of the United Followers of Augurgh to Virus attack in 1143.

New Era[edit]

Talon was a world that was a base for Vargr ships during the Dreamtime and, as a result, the Vargr proportion of the population increased even as the Souggvuez population slowly recovered.
