Summary[edit | edit source]
Gilmour Research Group (GRG) is a subsidiary of parent company Oriac Security Concepts (OSC). The organization's research was originally focused on marine environments and aquatic/amphibious fauna, but has expanded into dry-land and cave environs and their accompanying fauna. GRG maintains several facilities around the Nulodun Cloud region of the Euclid galaxy and has been expanding to other regions bordering the center of the galaxy.
Group Mission[edit | edit source]
GRG conducts environmental research for (OSC) for various reasons. Several GRG facilities are institutions where research findings are presented to students for further laboratory research. All research is freely available to the public, and anyone interested in assisting GRG in any way is encouraged to do so.
Group History[edit | edit source]
The Gilmour Research Group was founded by Dr. A. A. Gilmour, a brilliant research scientist working with employees of Oriac Security Concepts (OSC) on marine-based research on the planet Drugon in the Drugo system in the Nulodun Cloud region of the Euclid galaxy. The group, at first funded by a generous grant from The Grammo Lake Research Fund, (benefactor: The Looland Corporation) originally were tasked with documenting possible aquatic sites for OSC's classified project, Project Dark Empire. However, OSC decided the costs, monetary and logistical, of maintaining the several facilities and personnel of the project on dry land were more feasible than under the surface of ponds, lakes, and seas. Dr. Gilmour went to work for OSC on Project Dark Empire I but his heart still ached for the sea. A period of years went by, then, he resigned his position with OSC (after an intense debriefing) and continued on with his marine research group.
During a research mission in Lords Lake on Drugon Dr. Gilmour encountered a terrifying Abyssal Horror creature and narrowly escaped with his life. After recovering from his near-death experience beneath the waves, Dr. Gilmour was a drastically changed man. Becoming more and more erratic and paranoid with every research mission, his leadership qualities were coming into question, and the leadership of OSC were nervous that Gilmour might release his knowledge of Project Dark Empire (of which he actually knew quite little, due to severe, bewildering, and necessary compartmentalization) to the public. However, OSC's fears were unfounded. One dark night, after GRG's nightly group meal at Grammo Lake Research Center, Dr. Gilmour and his staff were killed when the facility mysteriously, and tragically, burned to the ground. Investigations into the matter - carried out by agents of OSC who were stationed just a few hundred meters away at Lords Lake Resort - concluded that there was insufficient evidence to proceed, and thus the incident remains a mystery. With heavy hearts, the administration of The Looland Corporation decided to purchase GRG to honor the memory of their one-time employee Dr. Gilmour and his staff.
And so, under new leadership, Gilmour Research Group and their important research continues and expands into exciting new ventures including marine and dry land educational services and marine-based tourism, so every person of every race can benefit from the research of Dr. A. A. Gilmour.
IN MEMORY OF Dr. A. A. Gilmour AND THE WONDERFUL STAFF OF Grammo Lake Research Center.
