Founded: Native World
An arboreal world far from its home star, it has a highly radioactive core which maintains the world’s surface temperature. Being so far from the system star, the world seems to be in a perpetual twilight. Vegetation struggles for what little light there is, including growing towards luminescent minerals and bioluminescent lichens.
The M’rrl’raran people are felinoid and hedonistic, often basking in one form or pleasure or another. As such, the only advances that tend to be made are in the form of recreational pharmaceuticals and neurological studies to enhance sensations.
The culture is based around a caste system in ascending order: pleasure slaves, warriors, crafters, artists, nobility. Unlike many other caste based cultures where warriors are near the top, M’rrl’rar society holds warriors as a necessary evil to guard and protect against pain and suffering. The only reason they are not beneath the pleasure slaves is because a warrior still can make decisions.
