On the fringes of the mighty Darikahn Empire, the small waterworld of Aguba spins lazily in the void, a tempting morsel for power-hungry nobles...and worse. Once a world of the Karsan League, Aguba is a world of divided loyalties and petty ambition, blithely dismissive of the looming threat of the Vaylen.

Imperial Cartographer's Report
The planet Aguba is named for the Sumerian word meaning Pure/holy water, a fitting appellation given the hydrology of the world and it's devotion to the Mundus Humanitas.
Located on the southern edge of the Darikahn/Karsan border.
Human Life Supporting
Thin and exposed to high levels of solar radiation.
A waterworld with underwater habitats and a few islands.
Most settlement is located underwater, in coastal shallows. Some settlement, predominantly agricultural fiefs is located on the island archipelagos, but these are rocky and largely inhospitable.
Generally low, possibly a 2.3 on the old scale. Research facilities on the planet have led to an advanced understanding of biotechnology, particularly in the field of cloning.
Dominant Form of Government
Formally a feudal world under the control of the Karsan league, the incorporation of Aguba into the Darikahn Empire has resulted in a more civilized form of government, led by an Imperially appointed Steward. Given the history of the world, his authority has been tempered by a Scientific Charter requiring him to consult with a council representing the interests of the major scientific bodies on Aguba.
Power on Aguba is dispersed among the following factions: Indigenous Life Forms, Organized Crime, Psychologist Foundation, Rebel Line, Slaves and Serfs, Theocratic Institutions (the Mundus Humanitas).
Regrettably, the loyalty of the military forces of Aguba is under question, given the number of Lords-Pilot drawn from the previous feudal structure.
Hubris leading to misplaced belief in their security.
