Tobibak is a nonindustrial water world, which has 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water.

  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Strand Subsector of Corridor Sector in the Domain of Vland.
  • During the Long Night this world was know as Giuun.
  • It is the homeworld of the Tobai, a sophontic species and minor race.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Tobibak is a minor Imperial world in the Strand Subsector of the Corridor Sector, which connects the Spinward Marches to the core worlds of the Third Imperium.

Native Sophont: Tobai[edit]

The Tobai are a primitive race in terms of technological advances.

  • Surprisingly, they are genetically similar to another species, the Githiaskio, a minor race found on Githiaski (Antares 2406) on the fringe of the Lesser Rift.
  • The distance between these worlds and the fact that the Tobai have developed sonar, suggests that the Tobai have been on Tobibak for millions of years.
  • How the Tobai came to be on Tobibak remains the central mystery to scientists interested in the world.
  • One suggested solution is the Ancients might have seeded the Tobai on Tobibak, just as they had done with Humaniti across space.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

For decades the Tobicorp Inc. Corporation harvested its abundant aquatic foodstuffs, and mined the minerals on the ocean floor.

  • The Corporation also exploited the indigenous octopoid race, the Tobai, using them as slave labor and suppressing the fact that they were intelligent.
  • When the whistle was blown to the Ministry of Colonization, it stepped in and prosecuted Tobicorp, and made the planet a Ministerial Protectorate.
  • This is unusual since it would normally be the Imperial Scout Service or the Navy that would be assigned to protect the home of an emergent intelligent species.
