  1. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 4.5 - Important Social Movements.

    The T’au’Liahnzhuu’Zhiing

    The Ethereals of the E’Krati did not abandon the caste system lightly. It happened early in the formation of what would become the Kepler Covenant; when High Ethereal Lu’tha was called a hypocrite by Chapter Master Tartaroth, for daring to talk of equality when his own people lived a segregated existence, it was one which cut the old Ethereal to the core. With so much on the line, there was little the Ethereal could do – at the time, it was seen as an absolutely

    The Acasti

    Though they hide it well behind their ‘Greater Good’ propaganda, more than perhaps any of the other species, the T’au are a deeply prejudicial race - in their own way, far moreso than even the most xenophobic inquisitor. Their supposedly tolerant outlook is, more often than not, a species party line that does not extend to their own people. As a caste-based culture, there are strict unspoken cultural rules regarding expected behaviors, interests, and personality types,

    The iKrati

    When one is rich, money isn’t used to buy things. Money isn’t used to feather one’s nest or serve one’s vices. Money is used to keep score. The rich need to be richer, not because the money will be used to fund a project or building, but to demonstrate to their peers that they are better. This is true of every race in the galaxy, human, Tau, Necron, or Eldar.

    However, when one does not have sufficient wealth to be ‘in the running’, one must find alternate

    The Baldachin

    The flip side to the Cadi, the Baldachin are the very lowest rung on Phyloaem’s social ladder. Bereft of all but the slightest hint of personality, these are those Necron Warriors whose engrammatic codes are the most fully compromised by both the deliberate ravages of the biotransference process, as well as the effect of the simple passage of time upon machineries that were never designed to last forever, whatever Necrontyr propaganda might say to the contrary.

    The Cadi

    The rites of biotransference that were first responsible for the transformation of the Necrontyr people into the Necron race were nothing if not political in nature. It is an undeniable truism that those in power have ever desired total control of those they deem beneath them; wherever an opportunity for greater mastery presents itself, those with the power and opportunity to do so will seize it. Thus it was, that when the Necrontyr lords first realised that they could use

  6. Intermission: 'The World Eater'

    This week, I am away due to family circumstances. We should be back to regular service next week.

    Jane hated space almost as much as Astartes.

    "We're progressing to the infiltration point now. Have you everything you need, doctor?" asked the Astarte in a voice that conveyed an implacable professionalism, combined with quiet yet sincere concern for her well being.

    Jane stared blankly, envisaging him begging for a chocolatey treat.

  7. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 3.8- Precariat, or Precarious Proletariat

    Precariat, or Precarious Proletariat

    To be a member of the Precariat is to be despised. Poorer than any other class, deprived in every conceivable way, with next to nothing in the way social and cultural capital, the Precariat live, from birth to death, with no hope of escape from their misery, or the mitigation of their suffering. This situation is made worse through their presentation in the media, where they are invariably held up as at best, responsible for their lowly position

  8. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 3.7 - Emergent Service Workers

    Emergent Service Workers

    A relatively new, and almost exclusively younger class of Phylolael society, The Emergent Service Workers make up approximately 19% of society, and are characterised by both relatively poor economic capital, but reasonable household income; indeed, most such households survive well, albeit frugally. Working in sectors which are by and large either unskilled, or else requiring little training, this class characterised by having only a moderate number social

  9. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 3.6 - Traditional Working Class

    Traditional Working Class

    The oldest of all the classes, the Traditional Working Class have very little money, very little culture, and very little power. Despite this, in many ways, it is the backbone of Phylolael society; what culture it does have, in many ways, embodies the past of Phylolaem, and this past influences the present significantly. This is the class with the oldest members, and as a result, has a great deal of experience, as well as meaning many own properties, however

    New Affluent Workers

    Making up about 15% of the population of Phylolaem, the New Affluent Workers come from any and all of the species which occupy the continent. Mostly made up of younger members of the species, or else those who are only just emerging into the new roles the Kepler Covenant has made possible, this is a class group which is extremely active socially, as well as showing interests in any aspects of culture and art which are new. This group has a middle level of economic
