The planet harbors a native sentient race, the J'aadje. The population
of Gaajpadje is governed by the Gaajpadje Oligarchs who rule the balkanized
city-states of the J'aadje Nations. Inhabiting a separate, eastern
continent of the world are the T'Kring, a militaristic human race. Tensions
between these two groups of inhabitants continue to run high, but the
planet's oceans are an effective barrier to large-scale warfare.
Adwuj -- A syrupy beverage native to Gaajpadje (Reavers' Deep 11 24).
It is usually served hot, and is made from the fermented sap of several
trees native to that world. Human visitors describe the taste as
bitter-sweet, and a cross between licorice, cinnamon, and burnt wood.
'jaadje -- A non-human minor race native to Gaajpadje. They are small
(adults mass 60 kg on the average), agile, golden-skinned bipeds. Their
society is peaceful and courteous, and they are likewise courteous toward
off-worlders. J'aadje civilization places lesser importance on technology,
instead stressing philosophy and the arts. Graceful and delicate artforms
and workmanship of high commercial quality are the norm, fetching
excellent prices among admiring off-world buyers.
K'Tring -- Warlike humans inhabiting Gaajpadje's eastern continent.
Descended from the crash of a starship 2,000 years ago, the K'Tring are
believed to be related to an obscure sub-species of Drexithar. With a
tech level of 6, the K'Tring are currently planet-bound.
