Timor, terraformed by Doramos the Worldshaper, is one of the most beautiful planets known. One massive continent dominates the western hemisphere while two smaller ones occupy the eastern. The temperature is similar to Holy Ersetu (they were higher before the sun began to fade) and just under 49% of the surface is water. The equatorial regions sports dark impenetrable jungles, with thick forests spreading both north and south, and mountains are found throughout.

History

This world was first settled by Bleedtouched from Holy Ersetu’s western hemisphere, along with political refugees, disenfranchised workers and urbanites fleeing overcrowding. Early pantheonic god-corporations wanted Timor for its perfect farming environment, but the original settlers had claimed the best farmland and were unwilling to deal. the pantheons tried to coerce these original settlers, but they had powerful connections on Holy Ersetu, as well as weapons. Finally the pantheons used subtlety, bringing in other settlers from Western Holy Ersetu who created clubs and mingled with the natives, subverting them from within. The pantheons also provided manufactured goods as reparations for past damage – highly disposable goods that the natives wanted more of once they used theirs up. the pantheons systematically reduced income levels across the world, forcing the locals into the better paying pantheon-run jobs to be able to afford more of these goods. Once part of the the pantheons workforce, the pantheons were able to indoctrinate them and convert the populace to their worldview within a generation.

Just then, the Bleedtouched rebellion occurred, destroying interstellar trade. Some locals sympathized with the Bleedtouched, though there were no longer any remaining on the planet. But the interruption of the flow of goods caused the workers to get angry, and the Hanumans, who had settled here earlier, took advantage of this. The Hanumans had been rising up the ranks of the the pantheons and when they claimed rulership of the world and resistance was minimal. The Hanumans encouraged immigration from Holy Ersetu, but created severe restrictions on construction and development. The Atzlánti set up secret military bases deep in the remote jungle regions to maintain the purity of their cause and avoid the corruption of the Hanuman cities. When the Hanuman called for the Atzlánti to disarm in GD 3977, the Atzlánti were able to capture Timor quickly, thanks to these hidden bases.

By the time the welfare computers failed, Timor was already under Atzlánti control. The Atzlánti provided food and stability at the time of the fall, but still some urbanites held out for rescue by the Hanuman, and also some jungle tribes resisted Atzlánti rule. Other noble houses made claims to land that had been theirs during the Diaspora. The newly formed Shoqëri Guilds made a demonstration of their strength here, blockading the system, financing the enemies of the Atzlánti, and landing Mōnstrum troops. The Sectus ended the conflict with its Privilege of Martyrs doctrine. By the end of the conflict, the Bursandras had seized most of the land from the Justus and Castenda.

The Al Fashir invasions began in 46th century GD, shortly after the three branches of the Atzlánti made peace with each other. In GD 4547, a coalition of Noble houses soundly defeated the Al Fashiri in Timor. Al Fashir raids finally stopped in the 49th century GD, though the jump gate to Garhira seals and unseals unpredictably. In GD 4987, the Al Fashir again reappeared – at the height of the Primacy Wars. The Al Fashirs were repelled with the aid of those Atzlánti that were found to have survived on Garhira.

The Bursandra family on Timor supported the Eduardos’ bid for power, and have set up many military training camps on the world, including Dervish camps.

Locations
