Other Data[edit]

Bunker Rats is the most common word when talking is about Vlu'da'rin.

It was a prisoner camp since the lanthanum was mined out following the Civil War. A stable TL–8 economy, where its possible to go in but not to go out. The security didn't rely on high tech computers, to avoid that hackers could break from inside or outside, by using sota equipment or the more profane social approach. The strength of the system was the blockwart sociology induced as a meme to the first prisoners.

So far only a priest of Leibowitz managed to visit the bunkers and to come out again. On his pictures the complex looked still functional, but the system was designed to host about 800 thousand people in hot bunkering, and now contains about 6 millions. As the block war sociology also implies that the system is constantly producing weapons to defend itself from the outside, any approach to free the people would most likely kill them all. The prisoners are working on a gigantic jump drive to fulfill the sky raider meme.

Muecke advised the Moot of Ports to wait until they reached TL–A to infect them with a lower strain. A mothers type could execute its egg on TL–A mainframes, and would be a good choice in his opinion.

The Moot prefers to wait. Its known that in imperial times, TL–D combat robots were send frequently into the bunker worlds to control the population level. From this point of view, the arrival of virus and the collapse of the 3I, was introducing a new future for them. Even if a solution has to been found within the next years, the Moot did came to any consents when speech is about the Bunker Rat. The theme should be avoided as it most times ended in flame wars between the fractions. Both the concept of inducing a new meme by missionaring or infect with a lower strain have its followers. The imperial solution is like Damocles sword, always in mind, but never in speech.
