Ash is a poor, preindustrial and moderate population desert hellworld with a population of over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts.

  • The inhabitants of this world struggle to survive in the life-threatening environment of a desert hellworld.
  • This world has no free-standing water.
  • The world is a preindustrial one, which cannot produce adequate materials to maintain a modern, star-faring society. These items must be imported at considerable cost.
  • This world has few prospects for significant economic development. The inhabitants of this world lead a bleak and constantly challenging existence. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Pretoria Subsector of Deneb Sector and in the Regency Frontier. This world contains a Regency Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. Less than 10% of the world's population is the Major Race Vargr.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

This world is located on the Marzian Loop.

Lurent planetoid ships may be found in the system’s Oort clouds.

Ash is a stellar antique. The world is at least ten billion years old, and most of its original atmosphere has leaked away. It is swept by powerful windstorms that strip away rock, dirt and ice, carving the local landscape into grotesque forms. The local climate is bitterly cold, and difficult to breathe without a mask.And yet the world had attracted a sizeable population of humans in antebellum times.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The world possesses massive deposits of iron and copper, and large processing plants, smelters and foundries were constructed to convert the local ore into a useful form and make implements for export. Other industries were established in their wake, and Ash had a sizeable antebellum population despite severe local conditions.

It still possesses the largest population of any Frontier world in Pretoria Subsector, a fact viewed as a liability by many in the Regency Safe.

Wreckage from the Battle of Ashes is maintained in orbit as a gravesite and zero-gravity museum by the planetary government.
