An Ecofact is a remnant of sophontic activity involving inorganic materials, often environmental evidence such as diggings, scrapings, or the accumulated remnants of tool-related activity.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Ecofacts are evidence of intelligent activity, usually of sophonts or protosophonts, but some intelligent creatures might also leave behind ecofacts in the environment.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Many creatures transform their environments building burrows, dams, and a variety of modified environments with discoverable telltales of their existence. These are ecofacts. Ecofacts can be as simple as cleared out fields or piles of stones.
