Kotoku I

Kotoku I is a terrestrial world in the Kotoku System and is the smallest population center in the Yugumo Cluster region of space.

Kotoku I is nominally ruled by The Duke of Kotoku. Settlement began as a splinter group of Lorath settling on the planet after the Second Mishhuvurthyar War. Over time, other settlers, such as Helashio and Jiyuu, also came to reside in Veľké Mesto Soľného Jazera, or Jazera for short, and is the main settlement on Kotoku I. The result is a planet diverse in population cohabiting in a single settlement.


The main settlement of Jazera is formed as an ecclesiocracy, where the religious leaders assume a leading role in the state, but do not claim that they are instruments of divine revelation. The current Duke, While the nominal head of the system, must juggle the clergy of the settlement, Who see to the day to day operations, city planning, and crime prevention.

Places of Note

Jazera (Capital City)

Veľké Mesto Soľného Jazera, or Jazera for short wasn't so much built in a day as it was raised around a grounded, colony ship called the Ziariace Kopca. Initially used by the first Lorath settlers in YE 35 to survive the first winter, It now serves as the central fixture of the burgeoning city, the bay doors usually open, the ship's interior partially converted to government offices as well as the home of the Duke when he is planet side. Nestled at the mouth of the Sladká Rieka, the city is grown around the Bay of Stedrosť. It is blessed with miles of beautiful, sandy-white beaches and azure waters, along which is built one of the most famous landmarks of the area, Chrám zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa (The Temple of the Risen Savior)

Chrám zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa (Temple of the Risen Savior)

Located near the center of Jazera, Chrám zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa is the center of all religious activity in the city. It's a particularly popular destination for wedding couples as it features Eight striking vertical granite pillars connected with stone and mortar flying buttresses and faced with local white marble. To enhance the beauty of the structure, the Temple is situated in the middle of a beautiful natural preserve & garden called the P'enn Gardens. The Temple is notable for being one of the only places outside former Matriarchy space to hold traditional Lorath wedding ceremonies, and is so named for the ancient tradition of gem & semi-precious stone offerings to adequately display the depths of one's affection for another.

Temple Square is a 10-acre (4.0 ha) complex, owned by The Church of The Risen Savior, in the center of Jazera, kotoku I. Contained within Temple Square are the Chrám Zmŕtvychvstalého Spasiteľa with a floor area of 253,015 sq ft (23,506 m2) and a height of 222 ft (68 m), Chrámový príbytok (The Savior's Tabernacle), Jazera Assembly Hall, the Pamiatka Cajok (Seagull Monument), and two community centers.


Civilian cargo shipping is primarily provided by Trinary Star Shipping, which has a storefront in Jazera.


Some Lorath settlers moved into Kotoku in YE 35.

Kotoku officially became part of the Lorath Matriarchy in YE 36 as part of negotiations for a peace treaty1).

In 4月 27日 YE 39 the Lorath Matriarchy disappeared, abandoning the system.

With a large number of displaced Helashio “free” from the guidance of the Lorath Matriarchy, Many female Helashio immigrated to Kotoku I, hearing of a promised land offering safety, security, and prosperity. A large influx of settlers, comprised of Jiyuu, Helashio, and even a few Lorath, to the Kotoku system as a whole as well as to Kotoku I's single organized colony, Jazera, necessitated the instatement of a Duke to the system. The man chosen was both the oldest being in the system as well as the first inhabitant, Glynvalur Starhearth.
