Shalimar is a planetary system orbiting a yellow G-class star.  The system lies in the Auriga Constellation of the Auriga Region.

Shalimar’s primary planet is one the worlds most similar to Earth in the Inner Sphere. With a similar size, composition, and temperature to Earth, there are also some significant differences. Most manly, the planet has a longer orbit, creating a lengthier year, with longer and more varied seasons.


Shalimar is the long-standing center of the Auriga Region, with a lengthy history of human habitation. The planet was one of the earliest to discover interstellar travel, and has been a beacon of technology and progress throughout the Inner Sphere.


Across the Inner Sphere, many worlds histories are centered around wars, violence, and destruction, they had to go through eons of human suffering to spur eventual advancement. Shalimar is different, it’s people have long preached peace and pacifism. A highly spiritual society, the ideals of Shalimar have spread across the Auriga Region and the Inner Sphere.
