Native Sophont (NIL): Ziadd[edit]

The Ziadd are the only surviving Minor Human Race within the Dagudashaag Sector. The Miyavine having died off several thousand years ago. Ziadd have been genetically engineered from Homo Neanderthalensis by the Ancients around the year -400,000 taken from Terra by the Ancients and transplanted to Zeda in Daguadshaag.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Zeda serves as subsector capital.

The world has a rich cultural heritage and is steeped in history. This can be brought dramatically to life by the many Ziadd who still follow the 'old ways' (the Ziadd hold tradition and heritage very highly, and casual travellers are warned to treat high-ranking individuals with the respect their status warrants). Most cities are dominated by networks of Citadel-fortresses, and most feel more like gigantic living museums than highly advanced industrial centres.
