Bael is a low-population vacuum world, with a population of less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail. It is a Human dominated Non-Aligned world in the Querion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Bael is a low-population, Non-Aligned vacuum world located in the Querion Subsector of the Spinward Marches.

History-Era: Milieu 1120[edit]

The huge strike of lanthanum in 1111 produced a land rush.

Other Data[edit]

Non-canon: Bael is divided between rival mining corps, Regency, Zhodani and others.

  • Even a couple of Aslan corps have a presence here.
  • Baelians are fantastically rich, but have recognized that the Lanthanum wealth will eventually run out, and are providing for the world's future by investment in improved infrastructure and education.
