History & Background / Dossier[edit]

The Vargr and visiting Zhodani trying to breathe the Exotic atmosphere on Asal (Knoellighz 0637) B5A0500-D De Ni / Ht can have high-pitched voices for half a minute before passing out from lack of sufficient oxygen. Thus, these Desert world inhabitants must bring along an air supply when out of doors.

World Starport[edit]

Asal has a good quality starport.

  • A Class-B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.
  • This neutral meeting ground for merchants, smugglers, dead-drop pickups, Vargr Emissaries and Zhodani Diplomats is overseen by a rather mercenary group of Corsairs that has “Lettered” itself as Privateers for hire by both the disbelieving Consulate to Spinward and the League to Trailing. These Privateers formed from former Corsairs provide system security from piracy, escort and take out mission tickets sponsored by the two polities when it suits them. De facto rulers of Asal, this band of space buccaneers is gaining Charisma in the edgy side of diplomacy.
  • The neutral meeting grounds in the Highport facility is well-funded through the local Privateers and the platform as well as the planet’s surface enjoys its High-Tech rating of D (13). It is in direct ecomomic competition with Gitsuraeguethousu (Knoellighz 0736) for traffic between the Consulate and the League.

  • The typical power source of this government is an Pantocracy or Chaos.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).

World Law Level[edit]

A lack of Government and Law makes this desert crossroads very valuable lying on the Bridge of Destiny between the Zhodani Consulate and its ally, the Infinity League.

World Economy[edit]

Water and oxygen are prime commodities here to the 300,000 sophonts and are often imported from Zueuer (Knoellighz 0737) at cost and that cost is lack of taxes on Asal in return.
