The overseas Indian community, estimated at over It constitutes a diverse, heterogeneous and eclectic global community representing different regions, languages, cultures, and faiths see Desi. With roots in the Babylonian Captivity and later migration under Hellenism , the majority of the diaspora can be attributed to the Roman conquest, expulsion, and enslavement of the Jewish population of Judea , [41] whose descendants became the Ashkenazim , Sephardim , and Mizrahim of today, [42] [43] [44] roughly numbering 15 million of which 8 million still live in the diaspora, [45] though the number was much higher before Zionist immigration to what is now Israel and the murder of 6 million Jews in the Holocaust. Chinese emigration also known as the Chinese Diaspora; see also Overseas Chinese [46] first occurred thousands of years ago.

The fractured remains of these two worlds spin lazily in their new orbits, and though there are more than a million celestial bodies with diameters greater than a mile within the Diaspora, all are spaced far enough apart that they rarely collide with one another. Most of these planetoids consist of formless chunks of rock or ice, though a few still hold traces of the civilizations of Damiar and Iovo.

Some have just enough gravity—or technological assistance—to hold a thin atmosphere, while others are devoid of breathable gases. Dust and tiny pieces of stone and metal float between the asteroids, occasionally posing a threat to ships passing through at speed. The true dangers of the Diaspora, however, are the beings that inhabit the asteroids.

Smugglers and space pirates—especially the Free Captains of Broken Rock—store their ill-gotten goods on various rocks; some protect their stashes with high-tech security, while others hide their lairs in plain sight on otherwise nondescript chunks of stone.

Many planetoids rich in minerals and other resources have been claimed by various mining companies—the most prominent being several dwarven star citadels—often all too eager to fight to protect their interests. In addition, androids calling themselves the Refugists have recently begun construction of their own home world by pulling together asteroids with tractor beams and gravity guns.

Called sarcesians, these humanoids supposedly descend from the natives of the lost twin planets, evolved and adapted to life in hard vacuum. Able to suspend respiration indefinitely, they soar between the lonely asteroids on wings of pure energy stretched impossibly long to catch the solar wind. Like many of their neighbors, the sarcesians send representatives to the Pact Council in order to make their views known, yet they have no overarching government capable of taking them beyond the status of a Pact World protectorate, instead following a libertarian philosophy of holding on to what they have and allowing others to do the same.

With a mile diameter, Nisis is the largest body in the Diaspora. Under its crust of ice, this planetoid is mostly composed of fresh water, an immense mass of liquid home to aquatic predators that have claimed the lives of countless would-be colonists. The River Between used to be a well-used way to travel quickly through the asteroid belt, but recently the water has turned dark, and sailors have begun reporting vicious attacks by unseen creatures.

Among many famous Diasporan locations is the House of the Void, a mysterious asteroid monastery whose black-robed monks stay tight-lipped about their goals. On the other side of the belt, the hollow asteroid known as the Wailing Stone now sits empty. Long ago, miles of silent corridors were drilled into the rock and used to quarantine victims of some terrible madness, and they later served as a penal colony—before all the residents vanished at some point during the Gap.

Attempts to recolonize the stone have so far failed, as all who remain longer than a few days report disturbing nightmares and glimpses of twisted figures dressed in yellow rags.

The plasma versions of these traditional vesk weapons use the same popular naming convention as other plasma weapons. Instead of representing some physical geography, the map represents the social space of the encounter. Diaspora SRD It only requires that the downtime exists. Artillery lasers are heavy weapons designed to be effective against wrd targets such as Vehicles and enemy bunkers. A ship that travels at speeds two V-shifts lower is conserving r-mass to maximize effective travel range. The Sequence outlines the order of combat, and is presented both in outline and with detailed explanations.
