Default Kagamira subsector

've been working on the Parasii family (to which the Countess Parasii who runs Uakye in 1113 belongs), and I've made them the ducal family of Kagamira. When I did a search on the name to make sure I wasn't in conflict with anything, I found that there has been a writeup of Kagamira subsector in Imperial Lines #3. Can anyone let me know what that writeup has to say? I know that I can just choose another subsector for the Parasiis, but I'm curious; I don't have IL 3, alas.


Hans

P.s. Any other information about the Kagamira subsector would also be welcomed.

I Googled Imperial Lines and found a site on Wikipedia.

No time to search site, you might try though.

All the Imperiallines 3-4 issue has is the following:

Library Data - Kagamira Subsector
by Robert Bates (UK)

Ershae Fiber: A lightweight rope woven from strands of Lishaa vine, a growth native to Gukhaga/Kagamira (Vland 1114 A877476-F). It was the rope of choice for bonds, snares and similar uses for many centuries owing to special properties of the vines from which it was produced.
In his definitive book on the subject, The Strangler Vines of Gukhaga, written in 401, Karish Shuush describes the Lishaa as one of the greatest natural dangers on that world. In his own words,
"Traps for the unwatchful and the unwary. A mature growth of these vines can vary in length from fifty to one hundred meters, and various offshoots from the main vine can extend the plant's control to a radius equal to its overall length; the unfortunate human or animal who wanders into the heart of such a controlled area finds that the vines react violently to the slightest disturbance, snaking around the limbs responsible."
Once the plant's grasp is secure, unaided escape is next to impossible, as the many skeletons found in Lishaa patches will attest.
The plant's seed pods, prized for their oil, and lengths of the vine itself, were considered so valuable that groups of people often ventured into such areas, despite the dangers. Once severed from the trunk vine, the smaller vines could be split and woven into ershae. The rope retains enough of the plant's natural characteristics that a knot tied in it would continue to draw itself more tightly (by means of "claws," tiny hornlike protrusions) lines leading to it are pulled.
Shaam: A hard, highly luminescent substance found on Darmagu/Kagamira (1116 B412312-E) where the Sharurshid megacorporation maintains mining and refining operations. The jewels are notable for their soft iridescent colors, ranging from pink to various shades of blue. The most desirable gems are of blue and turquoise colors.
Aaashi: A knife, whose blade consists of a single tooth from a Gishuud, shaped into an "S", the knife is considered sacred by a minor human race called Kirup (Ersii 1612 E361431-8). Once the blade is drawn from its sheath, it cannot be returned unblooded. To do so is to insult Iikme and risk bringing his wrath on all Kirup.

Hope that helps...
