Intelligent and peaceful residents of the Farrago, the Immasu
and Ashi-Adacheron met early in space exploration and
immediately formed a “best friends since preschool”
relationship which they would formally ratify as the Y'Hotha
Alliance. Their cultures developed together, focusing on natural
and sensible biogenetics and responsible high technology.
Together, they are driven to incorporate with and learn from the
environment around them.
When they ran into the Skalds for the first time, they were
promptly attacked and driven quickly from several systems
because of their weak military. They grow biogenetic,
collegially intelligent ships & buildings, incorporating
life into technology. Their technology is highly and quickly
adaptable and they were able to devise and develop weapons and
tactics to regain their systems and drive the Skalds to
stalemate. Racially, they are well traveled, their Alliance
populating a number of planets with good resources and
maintaining a relatively small but highly adaptable, quickly
scalable, and very effective military.
the Alliance encourages art, exploration, learning, innovation,
Both the Immasu and Ashi-Adacheron have strong family
structures and large families tend to co-locate in one area.
Historically, political units formed around the familial units
and the Alliance developed a complex voting structure based on
Familial Colleges. At the local, national, planetary, and
federal level, individuals elect a representative who will be
responsible for structuring the government by creating
appropriate positions of power. The individuals that assume a
representative position are never nominated or selected by the
individual that creates the position but by a popular vote.
There are no parties and nominations are drawn by open ballot.
The Family College is a local voting group that tends to
represent an extended family or segment of a family. The votes
from a Family College count towards electing a single
individual, called a Voice, to represent that College on a
community level. Towns and smaller cities will be represented by
a single Voice while larger cities may have several Voices. The
Voices represent the opinions and desires of their college by
electing local representatives.
Locally, Voices nominate and elect a Provost who oversees on
a roughly national level. The Provost creates and dissolves
Steward positions, granting them duties and powers he feels are
appropriate to perform specific practical and administrative
functions. The Steward positions are filled by the popular
nomination and vote of the Voices.
Each planet will have a Controller who is elected by the
Provosts. The Controller creates and dissolves Director
positions that are nominated and filled by the popular vote of
Central rule and coordination of the Alliance is carried out
by the Superior, elected by the Controllers, who creates and
dissolves Principal positions that are nominated and filled by
the popular vote of the Voices.
