Simia KK98 was an ice planet on the frontier in time. During the War, it became one of the few Time Lord colonies.

Geography Edit

Simia KK98 was covered in ice, but it notably had a psychedelic aurora that ceaselessly lit the sky with stripes of brilliant orange, turquoise, (PROSE: Alien Bodies) and dark black. The reflections of the sky on the snow made it seem blue and gold, The sky caused hallucinations in most humanoids, (PROSE: Dead Romance) even driving the first Gabrielidean scouting mission to the planet completely mad. To cancel this effect, neural suppressors were wired into the eyes of the human suits of the Nth Platoon. (PROSE: Alien Bodies)

The planet was uninhabited before colonisation, although it did support basic fungal life. Cwej's employers built numerous rocky fortresses on its surface, plus one huge central city. There was a six-armed statue of Rassilon outside the fortress, which housed the entrance to a bottle universe. (PROSE: Dead Romance)

The planet was located in the Simia system on the edge of the Homeworld's noosphere. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

History Edit

Early in the War, the enemy thought the planet had strategic importance, so the Time Lords deployed the Nth Platoon of the Gabrielidean military to attack a small automated enemy outpost there before going to War Zone One on Dronid. They were protected by reinforced humanoid suits (PROSE: Alien Bodies) and temporally-active biodata, but the enemy found a way to sabotage the skin-suits' thermal locks, (PROSE: The Book of the War) and the entire platoon was killed by the enemy's combat satellites. One soldier was visited by the Doctor, who was acting independently of the High Council and spectating the battle. After the Doctor left, enemy agents rescued the soldier and turned him into a Shift.

Homunculette's House spent months sealed into silos under the permafrost of Simia KK98, waiting for enemy probes to finish scanning the surface. They passed the time trying to stop themselves from thinking, by getting drunk or driving themselves mad. (PROSE: Alien Bodies)

In the early days of Faction Paradox's Remote project, Simia-KK98 was the site of a battle between the Remote and forces from the Great Houses. There, the Remote attacked the arctic fortress of the occupying House agents; however, prepared only by action-packed yet formulaic war transmissions, the Remote's charge embarrassingly failed as they each ran straight into the Houses' defensive positions in the heroic assumption that a one-in-a-million chance of survival was a good set of odds. Since most of them drifted off after the first attack, there were large numbers of survivors, but as they all went their different ways, most of them were never tracked down. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

Later, Simia KK98 was turned into a colony by the Great Houses for use as a hiding place if anything ever befell their homeworld. (PROSE: Dead Romance) The Time Lords kept Marie there in a box for the first decade of her life, making sure she couldn't move into the vortex or the physical world. (PROSE: Alien Bodies)
