History and background[edit]

In -691 the small resident community were slaughtered; every man, woman, and child were found hacked to death. All evidence pointed to the involvement of Ziadd pirates. The victims were fundamentalist members of the Universal Church of God, and were probably attacked in retaliation for the decimation on Fau the previous year. Since then the world has been recognized by Univeralists who maintain a monastic-like settlement, dedicated to deep theological contemplation. The inhabitants are now protected by a cadre of 'warrior'-monks.
