Links: The Emergence Empire
Planet Name: Skism
Region: Outer Rim
System Name: Utangard
Trinary Star System
Dense Asteroid Belt
7 Planets, 32 Moons
Major Imports: Quarzitian Ores
Major Exports: None
Unexploited Resources: None
Gravity: 1.2x Standard
Atmosphere: Type 1
Primary Terrain: Ecumenopolis
Capital City: E. City (Emergence City)
Planetary Features: Tunnel Network, Lower Levels, Reactor Districts, Airborne Residential Platforms, Transit Networks,
The Rupture - A massive split that stretches across at least a quarter of the Planet. Ranging from the Surface down to the Upper-Mantle, it was the source of 99% of Geothermal Energy for the S'kiss Species.
E. City - The Capital of the Skism Ecumenopolis. After the arrival of The Emergence, it was renamed to Emergence City, or colloquially, E. City. Consisting of all the major structures such as the Cassum Complex, Epifan Shipyards and most major Districts.
Cassum Complex - The Headquarters for the governing body of The Emergence, The Cassum Cabal. Housing the Four Superiex, Extensive training grounds, research facilities, war-rooms etc.
Epifan Shipyards - The surface-based Emergence Capital Shipyards. Here is where the majority of Engine, Weapons, smaller-scale Chassis and other ship-based Components are manufactured.
Exapo Shipyard - In high-orbit of Skism is the Exapo Shipyard. Here, unlike the Epifan, is where the majority of major Ship developments occur. Chassis ranging from Corvette up to Superiex-Class are constructed here, along with most large Ship Components.
Reactor District - After the arrival of The Emergence, energy dependancy switched from Geothermal to advanced Anti-matter reactors. These reactors were established in large networks and made up a significant district of E. City
Protarch Skycity - Of all the Airborne Residential Districts, Protarch is the largest and wealthiest. Nearing a full 80km in diameter, it consists of its own Residential, Labour, Research and Leisure Districts, unlike other Skycities that normally only consist of varying numbers/sizes of Residential and Labour Districts.
Intent - To provide the chamber from which the members of the Cassum Cabal derive their power as well as a specialised Meditation Chamber.
Nexus Name - Chamber of the Void
Nexus Alignment - Dark
Size - Small
Strength - Little Influence outside the Chamber itself, intense local strength
Accessibility - Hidden and heavily protected. Only accessible through an extensive tunnel system that travels deep into the Cassum Complex. The length of this tunnel is constantly manned by P1 Battle Droids, Several Blast Doors and Cameras.
Effects - The room in which the Mask is located reverberates with an intense energy. One that conveys a deep sense of Nothingness and Dread to those inexperienced with it. Upon first contact with the Mask, the user (FU) gains a potent Force Drain Ability. Contact thereafter puts the user into a deep meditative state in which their Force Signature is stripped from them for the duration of the engagement, rendering them a wound in the Force.
Native Species: S'Kiss
Immigrated Species: None
Populations: Heavy / 780b
Demographics: S'Kiss / Xenophile
Primary Languages: Galactic Basic, Skist
The S'kiss are a very Isolationist species and have had little to no experience with the rest of the Galaxy. Contrary to popular belief, this has made them very Xenophilic when in contact with other species.
They are a unified people with no regard for War. This has permeated throughout their societies resulting in a very peaceful, stable civilisation. They often celebrate their historical move from Feudal Nation States into a Unified Democracy.
Other than these fundamental ideologies, Cultures vary significantly across the planet.
GOVERNMENT AND ECONOMY
Formerly Unified Democracy
Post Emergence Arrival - Enlightened Imperial Technocracy
Affiliation: The Emergence Empire
Being Isolationist, the S'kiss have developed a very strong internal economy. With the arrival of The Emergence, this has only increased.
Civil Stability has reduced significantly post-Emergence. This is due to the heavy persecution of Religious groups by the new Government. Though this has been countered by a significant push in propaganda.
Freedom and Oppression:
Planets under the rule of The Emergence are as Free as it gets. Unless you're religious or in any way Non/Anti Science. Persecution results in a Purge of that population.
The S'kiss are a majority Non-Religious Species. But those who were discovered to be practicing what is considered under The Emergence as "Ignorance" were quite simply killed immediately.
MILITARY AND TECHNOLOGY
Post-Emergence - Skism has become a heavily Militarised Planet with a constant fleet in orbit. The Ecumenopolis has been filled with towering Anti-Aircraft Turbolaser Batteries, several military academies have been established and Emergence Droid Divisions patrol the streets perpetually.
Galactic Standard. With the arrival of The Emergence, this is rapidly increasing.
A planet host to one of the oldest species in the Galaxy. The S'kiss have had plenty of time to grow and develop, resulting in their home planet becoming covered in City-Sprawl to cater towards the slowly growing population. Since their societal switch towards Unity and the subsequent acquisition of Galactic Standard Technology, the S'kiss have rarely, if at all ventured from their home system. They are keen Isolationists, aware of the presence of other species yet adamant to remain hidden and un-contacted.
More recently, The Emergence Empire arrived. The Superiex managed to persuade the planetary government to allow a switch of power, and now Skism is under the control of The Emergence. This has resulted in a massive boost to the Scientific Sector and militarisation of the Planet. The People have remained essentially as they were, the only exception being Religious groups, who have been persecuted under the new Government, resulting in a significant number of deaths.
