The Trexen of 769-422 (Spinward Marches 0240) are a technologically primitive Minor Human Race with a human appearance.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Trexen could not have been voluntarily planted on this world. The local vegetation is mostly inedible, and the soils are poorly developed for agriculture anyway. To subsist, they herd huge 30 metric ton herbivores called Stsarcs, and move nomadically across the worlds extensive prairies in search of fodder. Most of their clothing, building material and food come from these animals. Stsarc tusks were a form of currency, and the bones were even used for art and musical instruments. When contacted the Trexen were mostly at TL–3, but showed considerable mechanical acumen.

The Trexen are a peaceful and unaggressive group. Unlike most nomadic humans, disputes were resolved by careful negotiation and sharing of grazing lands. Family groups are loosely held together, and individuals and small families frequently switched their allegiances, joining with other clans whenever they met. This cooperative unity was butressed by strong traditions of shrewd intertribal governance, and an efficient method of interclan communication that kept the wandering bands in close contact, even when thousands of kms away. And they had a sophisticated grasp of economics that let them hold their own against offworld merchants. All of this activity seems to stem from the severe dry spells that the world undergoes at frequent intervals; conflict over land and water made scarce by drought would have decimated these people.
