Welcome to the Paradisus/ Imperium of Surmarack discussion thread! Post approved character sheets, questions and concerns here! There's alot to the world of Surmarack, so if you have and questions, feel free to ask! A couple things I'd like to clarify. 1. What is technology like? Well, humanity has taken a minimalist approach to technology, finding ways to integrate is seamlessly into their lives without it being conspicuous. Upperclass citizens have implants that preform all the functions of modern phones and tablets. The world appears to be very archaic, but hidden just beneath the surface is a wealth of technological advances, you just don't see it right away. The lower classes, workers, farmers etc. might as well be living in the dark ages. They have very little and next to no access to advanced technology. Alien races each have their own idea about it as well. The Isthus seem to have little need for technology other that in their ships. The Lynxine are the opposite, using any advanced piece of equipment they have at their disposal. The Sanhedrin also seem to care little for technology, but no one is sure of anything with them. 2: Transportation on the station and through space There is a well developed shuttle and rail system that connects all the major cities at a reasonable price. Space travel on the other hand his limited to the very wealth or those of the lower class who work off-world. 3. Merchant Guild There is a powerful merchant guild on Surmarack. They control the distribution of most commodities. The Imperium does not like them, and they may be the next target after the Houses. Any other questions, post 'em here or PM me!
