The Mrrshan are one of the major civilizations in Master of Orion.

Background[edit | edit source]

Master of Orion[edit | edit source]

The Mrrshans are descendants of very large hunting cats, and although they have in general been able to curb their aggressive impulses, the Mrrshans still retain a keen hunter nature. Their sheer ferocity and natural instincts make Mrrshans the best gunners in the universe. Mrrshan ships move first in most situations and add four levels to their attack rolls. Mrrshan ships equipped with multiple fire weapons can be particularly nasty.

Like the Alkari, Mrrshan players should begin the game in an offensive posture and should attack their enemies almost immediately.

Master of Orion 2: Battle at Antares[edit | edit source]

The Mrrshan look as though they've evolved from cat-like predators because they have. This genetic heritage has left them with keen senses and fast reflexes, which add 50% to their chances of hitting in ship-to-ship combat. The fierce Mrrshan are Warlords. Despite their mineral-rich home world, only a strict status-based social order has enabled the Mrrshan to control their fierce feline territorial instincts, so they have never been able to progress beyond a Dictatorship government.

Manual[edit | edit source]

Descended from legendary hunters, the Mrrshan are the most unpredictable and vicious fighters in the universe. Decisive and confident, they will strike first and without mercy when threatened. Ruthless militarists, the Mrrshan make honorable allies and devastating enemies. However, their mercurial temperament means a treaty with them needs to be backed up by strength.

In-game[edit | edit source]

The blazing savannas of Fieras gave rise to the ruthless warriors known as the Mrrshan, but their hot temper almost proved their undoing.

After years on the brink of civil war, the Mrrshan Emperess rules over her Pride without question. Mrrshan are willful and independent, and their long history as hunters has shaped their culture fittingly.

They see themselves as the peak of predators, and any other life from who crosses their path is regarded as fair game.

They often strike out against even their closest allies just for the sport of battle. They are easily offended, and will pursue relentlessly anyone they feel has slighted them, heedless of the consequences.

Website[edit | edit source]

The Mrrshan are elegant, rebellious, and independent creatures. They are a highly decorated race with beautiful art, architecture, and flawless personal style. Designs from Mrrshan culture often catch a high price in any market, as their products are exquisitely made and luxurious in nature. Fieras, the home world of the Mrrshan, is a sunny planet with spacious plains, dense jungles, and shining seas. The Mrrshan, while the most intelligent of life on Fieras, are not alone on their planet. They are surrounded by many vicious beasts and creatures, keeping the Mrrshan vigilant against attacks.

These natural predators are thought to be one reason why the Mrrshan became such excellent soldiers later in their evolution. While they are a feudal government, nothing about their laws or policies are oppressive. The Mrrshan as a whole value freedom from religious, creative, political, and personal oppression. They believe in living as they please, loving whoever they want, and above all being fearless in battle.

The Royal Family rules over the feudal government, with an Empress ruling over all. The Empress leads the Mrrshan into battle during times of war and manages her Royal court in times of peace. The Mrrshan royalty are looked upon as the source of strength for their battalions in times of war. The Mrrshan see the skies as a great adventure. They see beauty in the stars and majesty in the phenomena of the galaxies. They fight for freedom and the right to explore any corner of space they desire. The Mrrshan are too adventurous to be kept in the confines of their home galaxy when there are thousands of lands they have not seen. The Mrrshan are some of the deadliest gunners in the universe and they will use those gifts against any who try to block their path.

Art Book[edit | edit source]

The Mrrshan Pride seek to blaze a glorious trail across the galaxy. The Mrrshan are a vibrant society of artists, warriors, and nobles who refuse to back down from a challenge and see the open sky as their domain.

The Mrrshan are confident to the point of arrogance, but no adversary should assume that their boasts are mere idle threats. Those who play as the Mrrshan will enjoy their natural aptitude for combat as well as their unmistakable sense of style.

Harrava, the Mrrshan Advisor
Mukirr, the Mrrshan Warrior

Empress - Leader Of The Pride[edit | edit source]

(From the official Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars Art Book)

The Empress of the Pride is descended from all the great Empresses of the past: a bloodline can be traced from the current ruler back to the very first monarchs of Fieras. She is personally courageous, never sending a soldier to fight a battle that she herself would not fight in. If the Empress is not in her palace overseeing the feudal government, she is likely to be found on her personal flagship.

She expects the very best of her people and herself, striving to create a universe where no one would dare to infringe on the freedoms of the Mrrshan people.

Harrava - Handmaiden To The Pride[edit | edit source]

(From the official Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars Art Book)

Harrava has served the Empress her whole life, as her childhood friend, her sister in battle, and finally her Advisor when the Empress took the throne. Despite their close bonds, Harrava remains subservient and obeys the Empress on all matters.

This is not evidence of how little the Empress respects her, but rather a show of how much Harrava reveres and accepts the role of the Empress. Harrava will live and die for the Empress, content as long as she has faithfully and diligently served her friend and sovereign to the best of her abilities.

Mukirr, the Mrrshan Warrior[edit | edit source]

Mukirr is a ship leader that appeared in Master of Orion II: Battle at Antares, an Mrrshan Commando that has gone full rebel and went out in Galaxy to find a new cause to fight for. Mukirr is a good leader for your ground troops and massively improve accuracy of Beam Weaponry on your ships.

Fieras (Planet/System)[edit | edit source]

(From the official Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars Art Book)

The wild grasslands and savannahs of Fieras are the hunting grounds of the strong-willed Mrrshan race. Fieras is a stunning planet, with grassy plains, sprawling deserts, and quiet-seeming seas. The Mrrshan have established themselves as the dominant race on the planet and secured their role at the top of the food chain. Life is not easy on the Mrrshan home world, with many aggressive and violent predatory species roaming the planet. The competition has kept the people sharp-witted and the Mrrshan credit much of their military prowess to their natural skill as hunters.

Jasana is the crown jewel of the planet’s many praiseworthy and illustrious cities. As the seat of the government, the Royal Palace sits in the eye of the city and is the center of all cultural, military, and spiritual happenings of the Pride. The Empress oversees all in her realm, and nowhere else is her presence stronger than among the Countesses, Handmaidens, and Ladies of her regime. Jasana is a thrilling city—a city that dances the line between danger, beauty, and power.

The Mrrshan embrace the idea of freedom so wholly that it defines their very race. They will not be limited to the familiar grasses and sands of home. The first time the Mrrshan looked to the stars, they saw not just countless galaxies marked for adventure, but they grasped the true meaning of freedom. The endless and limitless potential of space exploration thrills the restless spirit of the Mrrshan.
