I am looking for a world inhabited by both humans and Tau and perhaps some background info on it, or a world like a "Space Tortuga", with different races on it and a lot of shady business going on. Alternatively, a non-imperial human world would be fine, too.

Oh, and does anyone know the size of a small Escort Class Spacecraft, or a small Trading Ship?

Humans and Tau sounds like some very unlikely neighbours. Their are plenty of humans who'd go for it, but the Tau are a bit too 'act as one' for their to be dissenters from the creed. Isn't their an Ork tribe that trade with humies?

As far as I know, the Tau expanded west and met the first humans on the eastern fringe of the human empire - rouge traders, renegades etc. They expanded further and further and apparently conquered some world. Then, the humans stroke back, conquered some stuff, made peace, left and the Tau recolonized the worlds, mixing with humans. And they try to incorporate everyone into their empire (they even tried with Orks).

Anyway, the Ork tribe sounds interesting, too, do you know its name or where it is located?

No, I can't remember the name. It was in an article on the old, glorious, maze-like GW website. Now it's not on their new catalogue. Sorry. All I can remember was that they were obsessed with teef and other Orks thought dem sissy, 'umie-loving shootys.

There is a world like this and it is in one of my Caiphas Cain books.

I will see if I can find it.

You are not a man of many words, eh?

Thanks though. Does the novel only mention the planet or does it cover in in detail?

Not much detail but I can skim it and see if something pops up.

The main story behind is that the Tau have been slowly (over 100s of years) trading with this planet. Over time people began to accept the Tau and the Tau even had their own town inside another town.

The bulding designs are different as Tau seem to use Curves for buildings as humans use a "box" format.

Tau technology is far superior to that of the Empire. The common folk love it as it makes hard work and other tasks easier.

The Inquisators of course feel slightly differently about the Tau's technology.

Also, the Tau will use Rogue Traders to due their bidding until they know they can actually set foot on a planet.

This planet in question was quite happy (for the most part) with the Tau it was a Genestealer Cult that sought to use the Tau as an issue so they could flourish.

The Empire knew if they lost this planet then the Tau would keep trying to take over planet by planet. Abliet peacefully.

Yeah. The planet seems to be part of the subsector the Tau almost completely took over. Or a planet from the adjacent subsector. The Empire tried to reconquer the subsector during the Damokles Crusade, but eventually they retreated and the Tau returned again.

Well, thanks a lot, this seems to be the perfect setting for my Rogue Trader Smile
