History

Nataria was the site of the First Battle Of Nataria, which was the start of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War and the Second Battle of Nataria, which heralded the war's end. The third and most recent Battle of Nataria was fought against the Kuvexians.

Description

Nataria is called, “The Nekovalkyrja homeworld”, Because it is their primary place of creation and the nexus of their creator, the Star Army of Yamatai. It is the second most heavily defended planet in the empire, following Yamatai (Planet). It possesses a global shield system that can deflect or absorb damage from large relativistic projectiles going at significant fractions of the speed of light, automated defensive platforms, extensive sensor networks, and a substantial garrison.

Nataria is one of the ‘Warmaster’ star systems (the others being Anisa System and Tatiana). The system consists of a series of terrestrial planets followed by an asteroid belt, followed in turn by four planets. The gas giants in the system were named after minor Æsir, while the rest of the bodies in the system are not named with specific rules in mind.

Of these planet Nataria is the third orbit from the sun. Two planets do not orbit along the a similar plane as the rest of the planets, traveling roughly 45 degrees and 70 degrees relative to the average orbital plane.

The system has one major habitable planet, Nataria.

Nataria is the one major habitable planet, which is covered in temperate and alpine forests, military bases, and cities.

The gas giants in the system were named after minor Æsir, while the rest of the bodies in the system are not named with specific rules in mind.

The Nataria System

The Nataria system only has one major inhabited planet, and has an above-average amount of gas giants. It is located approximately eight light years galactic East-Southeast from Yamatai (Planet).

Other Celestial Objects

There is an extensive asteroid belt between the fifth and sixth planets in the system. This resource rich area is surmised to have once been a failed protoplanet caught between the gravity of the other planets.

Planet Nataria

Planet Nataria is the habitable world in the Nataria star system and is an important and historic center of Star Army of Yamatai operations. Because it is the primary source of the vast majority of Nekovalkyrja, Nataria is widely considered to be their de facto homeworld.

Nataria is the second most heavily defended planet in the empire, following Yamatai (Planet), possessing a global shield system that can deflect or absorb damage from large relativistic projectiles going at significant fractions of the speed of light, automated defensive platforms, extensive sensor networks, and a substantial garrison.

Nataria is a forested world sustained by a complicated water cycle from what are not so much oceans as enormous inland seas and lakes. The forest is fairly undisturbed over the globe other than by these lakes, and the occasional mountain range jutting up above the tree tops. There is very little wildlife on Nataria other than the trees and feral chicken released into the wilderness by Star Army soldiers.

Planet Nataria is the home of:

Communications on the planet are provided by a network of Emrys Satellites put into orbit in YE 36.

Transportation

PAINT service is currently active with many routes between the Core Yamatai planets, as well as all along the space-lane to the Motoyoshi Colonial Sector.

Flag

The flag features an overlay of the Yamataian Star Empire's flag, including the traditional blue background and the newer bell-flower roundel. The red and white sun rays are based on the Star Army of Yamatai's historic ensign and represent Nataria's link to the military; most of the planet's population is comprised of soldiers, as this world is the hub of the Star Army. The red represents war. The white represents honor.

People

The planet's population of over 6.2 billion people primarily consists of Nekovalkyrja and Minkan soldiers of the Star Army of Yamatai (active or retired). The population is concentrated mostly in vast military bases on the surface of Nataria, in orbit, and in cities. Other species are minorities.

RP Opportunities

Nataria's RP opportunities are mainly centered around interacting with the Star Army of Yamatai. As a hub for Star Army ships and equipment, there's always work to do to keep the Star Army running smoothly, and players can get to see that work in action when they visit. It's also one of the main birthplaces of Nekovalkyrja so they can see how the Star Army's famous catgirl soldiers are made.

  • A great place for veteran personnel to visit or retire.
  • Many commerce and shipping opportunities.
  • Enjoy R&R in and out of the many cities on Nataria.

Local Rumors

  • The planet is equipped with a planet-scale superweapon, energy shields, and a hyperspace fold drive.
  • The Star Army is considering building a massive new base on the planet soon.
  • Ships from the museum sneak out and do secret missions sometimes.
  • There's multiple secret Star Army task forces composed of “off the books” ships based in Nataria.
  • Unauthorized ships trying to salvage debris around Nataria disappear into the salvage and no one from the YSE government asks questions
  • There are a string of private shrines to fallen compatriots at various private and group residences.
  • Shimizu Advanced Space Industries has had a small research facility at the production facility supplying materials to the Star Army for years.
  • Nekovalkyrja residing on Nataria have created a series of ad-hoc sports for their advanced bodies. Injuries abound.
