This page provides information on the home world of the Poku Saeruo Degonjo.
Otâgolisoy or Birth world in Takavonai is where two species rose up in parallel evolution.
Otâgolisoy is a terrestrial world with 63 percent of the surface covered by oceans. While the planet had a diverse ecosystem, there were two dominant terrains. The largest continent that the Poku Saeruo Degonjo races began was divided by a massive mountain range. The planet orbited a G series star, its orbital period was 352 days, and the planetary rotation was 30 hours. The planet possessed abundant surface resources, and mineral resources. It had a gravity of 1.1 G.
Otâgolisoy had one moon, and a ring that split the night sky.
Great jungles spread across the northern regions and it was here that the Qaktoro culture first rose up. Their culture developed into tribes that claimed hunting and foraging grounds and protected them fiercely. In time these tribes joined to form larger groups, or tribal nations. When they reached this stage the Qaktoro transitioned to a less migratory culture. This started the beginning of a technological progression for the Qaktoro. Weapons to hunt as well as to fight rival nations would lead the way to technologies that made life better for the people.
Vast velds spread across the southern regions and it was here that the Tula developed their own culture. The smaller Tula learned to work together, and developed an agrarian culture, and would send teams of hunters out to forage for meat. The Tula developed new and better ways to grow crops, and later to create new crops. Crops were used to create medicines, and other things that aided their culture.
It was a major shift in the weather patterns that would lead to one of the biggest events in these two peoples existence. A massive drought wracked the northern region due to deforestation of large areas by the Qaktoro for mining and other activities. So they began exploring the areas beyond their jungle homes, and encountered the smaller Tula. While the initial contact was friendly it was not long before the leaders of the Qaktoro saw the Tula as rivals for resources, and as a weaker species. A long and bloody campaign of near genocide ensued, it was the Detis Goa'ai Jael (Faith Walkers Sect) and the Otâmovi Wiy Jael (Silver Moon Sect) finally saw that the Tula possessed skills and abilities, and convinced the Tanoi (Council) to end the slaughter.
As with most people the early portion of the Industrial Age saw Otâgolisoy being damaged by the expansion of industry. Eventually with cooperation between the two races, the members of the Poku Saeruo Degonjo began exploring new methods of production to move beyond the early industrial age without continuing to ravage their world. They constantly worked to find a balance between the needs for industry, resources, and habitats for their people.
By the time that they had developed crude space travel, the home world was a carefully maintained ecosystem. Further improvements were made when they moved most of their industrial facilities into orbital stations.
The Poku'vonai took to space purely out of a need to find new resources without damaging their world. Once they had sufficient technology, most of their heavy industrial activities that had potential harmful impacts on the environment were moved to either orbit or the moon. Moving industries to space ushered in new manufacturing technologies and products. These helped improve the standard of living of all Poku'vonai. They sent remote craft to explore nearby star systems knowing it would be years before they heard back from them. Fifty years after the launch the first craft returned and they learned of other worlds that were capable of supporting life and having abundant resources. They first launched sub-light craft to the nearest world while devoting much research into developing FTL capability. Fifty years after the first colony was formed, the first Tinvyma Movidoanor (Tunnel Drive) equipped craft were sent out. This marked beginning of a major move of Poku'vonai away from Otâgolisoy.
