The surface

New Romulus (also known as Dewa III, Vastam, and Mol'Rihan) is the third planet in the New Romulus System and the capital of the Romulan Republic. Its accesible surface is an adventure zone, with the capital city also being home to the Fleet Embassy as well as New Romulus Command.

Due to the destruction of Romulus in 2387, and as a counter weight to the Tal Shiar and Sela's deceitful Star Empire governed from Rator III, Romulan and Reman fugitives under D'Tan and Obisek declared Mol'Rihan to be the new capital planet of a peaceful and honest Romulan civilization in 2409.

System description[edit]

Records indicate that the colony ships that left Vulcan after the Sundering spent several months on this planet. Mostly abandoned since then, this M-class world is now the home of New Romulus, a colony made of Romulans and Remans seeking to create a new society and a new homeworld.

Radiation levels and seismic instability on the planet indicate that there was a world-wide cataclysmic event in the world's distant past. It will take more study to determine exactly what happened.

History[edit]

The Iconian Empire[edit]

  • 200,000 years ago, Dewa III was a colony world of the Iconian Empire. They ruled oppressively over the native Dewans, killing any who did not fall in line.
  • When the Iconians' subject races rose up against them, Dewa was the first planet targeted. The rebels bombarded the planet from orbit, killing thousands and destroyed the geothermal taps that provided power to everything on the planet. The Iconians on Dewa III fled through their gateways, abandoning the Dewans, and the rebels moved on to other Iconian worlds.

The Dewan Civilization[edit]

  • With the Iconians gone, the surviving Dewans formed their own civilization.
  • Thousands of years later, as the Dewans were preparing to launch their first starships, an abandoned Iconian Gateway was found in a subterranean cavern. Tempted by the possibility of instantaneous travel, the space program was abandoned and all resources were thrown toward making the Gateway operational again.
  • When the Gateway was ready, it was connected to geothermal power taps to provide the necessary energy. The Dewans failed to realize the bombardment millenia ago had made this dangerous.
  • When the Dewans activated the Gateway, it triggered massive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that wiped out most of the population and bathed the planet in a killing cloud of radiation.
  • The surviving Dewans retreated to caves to escape the radiation and the nuclear winter, but ultimately their resources ran out and they died off.

The Vulcan Outcasts[edit]

  • 2,000 years ago, the Time of Awakening occurred on Vulcan. Vulcan society suppressed its emotions to put an end to centuries of savage conflict. A group known as "those who march beneath the raptor's wings" opposed this solution, seeing it as a betrayal of their souls. They left Vulcan aboard huge generational ships and set off to find a new planet on which to settle.
  • The outcast Vulcans eventually reached Dewa III, which they named Vastam. Some desired to settle there, not wanting to return to the cold and cramped ships, while others believed they could not make the necessary changes to live there.
  • Eventually an open debate was organized to make the decision. Despite the good intentions, things quickly deteriorated and a massive riot began. By the time it ended, 247 people had been killed.
  • The survivors unanimously decided to leave, which they did. They ultimately settled on the planet Romulus and became known as the Romulans.

Missions involved[edit]

  • “The Search for New Romulus”: In 2409, a splinter group of Romulans led by D'Tan decided to put aside their history of secrecy and deception and create a new Romulan society. Together with Obisek's Reman Resistance, they founded the Romulan Republic and are looking for a new homeworld. A scout team of the Republic soon discovers the Sword of the Raptor Star among the ruins on Dewa III and determines the planet to be perfect for becoming "Mol'Rihan" - a New Romulus.
  • “Embassy Officer of the Watch”: Assist in the operations of your fleet embassy on New Romulus.
  • “Sphere of Influence”: Representatives of the Romulan Republic, Federation, and Klingon Empire are invited to New Romulus to oversee the activation of a recently-restored Iconian gateway discovered beneath the planet's surface.
  • Missions in the New Romulus adventure zone are listed in the following section.

New Romulus adventure zone[edit]

Missions[edit]

Locations[edit]

New Romulus Command and the Fleet Embassy are also located on New Romulus, but are not part of the adventure zone.

Staging Area[edit]

The Staging Area.

The Staging Area is where the player will arrive upon beaming down. This area contains the Fleet embassy, as well as access to the bank, mail, and exchange. A vendor selling consumable devices, personal shields, and body armor also conducts business here.

The Staging Area also offers a direct access to the New Romulus Fleet Embassy, and to New Romulus Command for Romulan Republic players.

Vastam Peaks[edit]

Vastam Peaks.

Located east of the Staging Area, the Vastam Peaks consists mostly of mountain ranges. The isolated area is prone to attacks from Tal Shiar agents, as well as imposing Dewan arthropods.

Mountain Pass[edit]

Mountain Pass.

In the north of Vastam Peaks lies the misty Mountain Pass. This area also has a transporter for fast access.

The Atlai[edit]

The Atlai.

The Atlai river is home to dozens of nanov, including a massive "mother nanov" at the far east. Animals such as the Rihan sailback are not uncommon.

Isha Forest/Epohh Fields[edit]

Epohh Fields.

The Epohh Fields are, as the name suggests, home to a variety of epohh species.

Paehhos Crater[edit]

Paehhos Crater.

The Paehhos Crater is a region located south of Vastam and east of Hwael. It is home to many species including Armored hatham, Vivver cats, and driclae. Hirogen hunters also stalk the area, looking for worthy prey.

Hwael Ruins[edit]

Hwael Ruins.

The Hwael Ruins are all that remains of an extinct civilization that dominated the planet long before the ancient Romulans arrived. Tholian raiding parties frequent the area, so players should be on their guard when traveling through Hwael.

Underground Ruins[edit]

Underground Ruins.

In the south of Hwael Ruins lies the mysterious Underground Ruins. This area also has a transporter for fast access.
