Yogesh has both a thin tainted atmosphere and no surface water which makes habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and a million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Yogesh Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Domain of Antares. Yogesh, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

History and Background[edit]

The factories of numerous subsector-wide robotics firms located on the desert world of Yogesh (Empty Quarter 1328) supply many of the general purpose robots shipped within Empty Quarter's Gamma Quadrant. With a booming computer and robotics industry, Yogesh hosts the respected Sinkiaan Robotics Conference every five years. Sponsored by the Sinkiaan Institute, this hundred-day conference showcases local achievements in robotic engineering, in a manner similar to the Shudusham Robotics Conference held on Shudusham (Core 2214).

The next Sinkiaan Robotics Conference is scheduled to begin on 120-993. The next Shudusham Robotics Conference runs the entire duration of Imperial Year 994.

Yogesh also administers the world of Uthurrvon (Empty Quarter 1228), a troubled Irilitok Vargr system within the Imperium.

Yogesh is a strongly caste-bound society, with a mix of Indian and Vilani social mores. Vargr are kept low on the totem pole.

During the False Dawn (200-300 Imperial), Yogesh’s robotic industry found her footing and began to really take off.
